Happy Birthday!!

Scrapbook Savvy has just had a Birthday themed CC and it was just perfect to give me the inspirarion I needed to scrap Miss B's birthday pics from ... quite a while ago!!! (last year!!!)
Anyway, Sara based her challenge on the pic above ... we had to use 3 elements inspired by that pic. Mine was:
polka dots - the sprinkles/colourful lollies
coloured string - the balloon string
bright fun colours
and also flowers from the flower shapes
Hope everyone is having a great week!

Yellow is a fun sunshiney colour, perfect to brighten our cold winter days :-). I don't generally like yellow, but I find it easy to scrap with yellow. Does that make sense?? Anyway, I made this card for a fun challenge on Natalie's blog...
Papers are a mix of Cosmo Cricket and American Crafts.

Don't forget the June sketch challenge at Handmade by Suzanne ... you could win a voucher and free postage from the store!!

Also the sketches at Stuck?! Sketches ... awesome sponsors this month!!!

One week to go before the end of the month :-) Happy scrapping :-)

Kit reveal

I was very lucky to be chosen as the June Guest Designer over at Scrapbook Savvy and I got to play with this super gorgeous kit!!!! Cosmo Cricket DeLovely papers .... love the colours ... so bright and pretty!! The kit is awesome and it shows - it sold out in a very short time!
The little bird cage is sooo cute and I really wanted to just sit and look at it for a while longer ... LOL ... but I think it looks great on the page too.

I really loved the Hambly transparency too - here I cut out a strip of the cardstock and replaced with the transparency.
I love paper ruffling at the moment :-)
And since the papers were very girly/floral, I thought it would be a challenge to create a boy page :-). I did add the kraft c/s and a few red embellies .... and the strip of book paper.
123 Go!:
I still have heaps of paper left over, enough for at least another LO and certainly some cards as well.
Will be back later with the 2nd sketch for the month over at Stuck?! Sketches. Hope you can play along - there are FAB prizes this month ;-).
