Scrap the boys - PLAY

I got into the action and made the Scrap the Boys challenge this month too. I had lots of scraps in these colors and (suprise, surprise) used some gingham to make a ribbon, fussy cut some clouds from my background and tried to keep with the circular theme to match the photo.
Not sure I'm happy with the result, but its another photo scrapped that would otherwise live in a box in the study.

Scrap the girls - there was a little girl who had a little curl

Scrap the girls have a great palette for their challenge this month, and I had just the photos that needed their treatment.

I've made some cute flowers with satin fabric and added diamonte flower centres, gathered some tuelle and used a die cut. Teamed with some little bits and pieces I found lying around I'm pretty happy with the finished layout.

My cutie patootie wanted curls like mum, so we carefully rolled curlers into her hair and she went to bed to wake up with beautiful, tumbling curls. They didn't see the day out but looked just adorable!

White with 1

So much has been going on in my personal life that I have literally had no time to create. Feeling devoid of all inspiration and having lost my mojo I returned to some old friends, challenge sites!

First cab off the rank is White with 1- create a page using red and circles/polka dots.

Loving glimmermist at the momement, so I found some little gems and bling in a drawer and scattered them over the page as a mask, as well as a paper doily. Once dry I stitched tiny red seed beads onto my polka dots and stuck down some little pearls to match my pearl flourish. Some red felt and tuelle with a big Kaisercraft brad and voila! simple little red lollypop flowers that match perfectly.
