2 Crafty - Lucky

In the layout “Lucky” the photo I used was taken at my sisters wedding and so the  Design Elements where a perfect elegant addition to the page. She was married in the City Park which has a beautiful classic garden design and the Lamp Posts add to recreate that feel on the layout. IMG_4765  IMG_4763

2 Crafty Reveal

My first month at 2 Crafty and I have to say I am excited …I received a fabulous array of Chip goodies from Vanessa … which have been really fun to create with. With this layout of Ashton at Eve’s Birthday hitting the PiƱata I have used a simple inking treatment on the chipboard to create the bright coordinating banner…and how cute is the banner.

Scrap the Boy Reveal

I don’t know about you but I know I really struggle to put flowers on a boy page so the first challenge for August is to scrap a layout using flowers …to make it a little easier I will allow this one to be of you and your boy/s… Or if you can’t come at flowers …scrap about their feminine sides… or if you are feeling very clever… use both criteria.

Here is my take on the challenge pop over to the blog to see what the talented team created…IMG_4704
