'Blues and/or Browns' mini challenge!

Hello again!
I'm just popping in to let you know about the new theme for our mini challenge at Creative Craft World this month.
All you need to do is make a project using blue and/or brown and link it to the
Creative Craft World blog HERE.
Lou very kindly sent me April's mini kit to have a play with.
You can find it HERE but you don't have to use it to enter the challenge.
(although you can if you want!)
This is what I came up with...
 The flower stamp is by Unity and the 'hello' stamp is Stampin' Up.

The sentiment is a stamp by Hampton Art Clear Expressions
and it's stamped with Elzybell's white ink. 

I have been very quiet on the blogging front,
mainly because we have been getting work done to the house and I'm stressed out with it!
Roll on the next few weeks to get the house back in order again :)
Thanks for visting and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

April scrapbook challenge at CCW

Good morning!
It's been a while since I posted but I'm back to let you know about the new scrap map challenge at Creative Craft World.
 We are having another blog hop this month and you'll find all the details on the CCW blog.
I didn't follow the sketch entirely this month as I only had one photo to use instead of three but I quite like how it turned out.
The papers are Echo Park 'Yours Truly' and the flowers are Green Tara.
I added a mix of fabric, suede and pearl brads to the flower centres and I made the gem flourish using a stitching template as a guide for placing the gems.
The photo is of Phoebe looking very pleased with herself at 11 months.

and now all you need to do is hop on over to Sarah W's blog to see her lovely layout. 
Thank you for stopping by to visit today
and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend :)
Take care
Sarah xx
