I Won!!! And a Scrappy Share :)

I can't believe I've done it again!!! I won one of the monthly challenged for July on SBT50!!! I didn't think any of my LO's would be good enough last month to be in the running for a prize, let alone win!!! I also won (as preciously mentioned) a product giveaway for the cyber crop so things looking good there :)

The LO that won was Challenge 1, Antheas Colour Challenge, you can find my blog link to it HERE....

Yaayy!! I win a gorgeous Vintage Blue pack from Wicked Princess - it looks sooo delish and right up my alley :)

they are still purchasable from Wicked Princess HERE if you like the look of the prize :)

Now for a scrappy share I've been holding on to as it was part of a monthly challenge pack for Scraphappy Kat. Others have started sharing and lodgement date is well and truly over so I'm comfortable with sharing even though the winner hasn't been announced yet...

Soooo This months challenge was to use ONLY what was provided in the pack the only allowance was to use adhesives... no ink or anything - which ruled out journalling other than using the alpha's provided - definitely one for thinking outside of the square!!!. It was a gorgeous pack to use!! Lots of blues and yellows and I believe suited the photo of Kahli that I used to a 'T' :)

Handmade flower from PP

Flowers and Tags

The flowers I cut from one of the PP's included. I used a distressing technique to shape the petals and then mounted the flowers from the centre with mounting tape. I'm kind of addicted to cutting and distressing at the moment :P

The tag was included in the pack, I've cut a thin bit of paper to use as a 'ribbon' to thread through the hole that was punched.

The background 'doily' looking paper was made using my smallest punch for my eyelet setter - some of them aren't that great but I think I was able to hide most of the wonky ones LOL and

The buckle on the 'ribbon' is a square sticker that was in the pack that I've cut to allow a ribbon of paper to be threaded through - I thought it was quite effective to finish off and frame the image.

Finally, I know the punched border isn't the best, I wanted a beautiful flourish up in the top right hand corner, but wasn't quite able to pull it off... It definitely needed the border to complete the page, I just wish i had another sheet of paper to re-do the flourish again....

  1. Congrats! Awesome prize! PMSL about your Nikon comment - I started with a Nikon, used to use my dad's analogue. But when everything turned digi I went to the dark side and bought a Canon.
