November Scrap The Girls

The challenge for November at Scrap The Girls is a colour challenge to use teal, orange and white. I am not sure how well the colours have come up here, but here is my layout:

For a colour combination I normally wouldn't choose - I seem to have been using a lot of this type of combo lately, probably because it has been included in a few of my latest kits. Thanks for looking!

Blog hop winner...

Challenge ME happy with hexagons

I found a new (to me) challenge site at Challenge Me Happy and their latest sketch is the basis for this layout:

I had these little chippie hexagons in my stash from my Pink Paislee prize win from a while ago, and they were just perfect for this sketch.

Thankful in November

The November challenge at Once Upon A Sketch is quite an easy challenge - with no special criteria other than to follow the sketch and add journalling. You can find the challenge and examples here.

I have included some journalling on the back of the stamped tag, which is about how I like to wear my name pendant at times when I need reminding about what is important in life and to not worry about little things.

Here is my layout:

I am also linking this up with Use It Tuesday Challenge # 43 which is to Be Thankful. This is a great challenge site encouraging everyone to use up their stash (what a novel idea!!), on this layout I have used up some of the little word stickers to the left of the photo.

White space....or maybe rainbow space?

I haven't participated in the challenges at Kraft It Up for some time now, but the November challenge seemed right up my alley - create a layout on Kraft with loads of white space. However, as seems to happen, I am not sure what really happened to my usual clean, straight, lots of white space type of layout.

I hope there is still enough space here to qualify, if not - I had fun anyway!

Colourful enough for you?

Workout #79

I have created a very bright fun layout for my example for Workout #79 at ScrapFIT

which was of course to use Washi Tape! I have used it in my favourite way on the border of this layout, and also to create the flags on the bunting. Such a fun way to brighten up a page, although using more subtle colours I'm sure could work too!
Here are all the details:

When in doubt, tape it up!  A new and exciting product in the scrappy world is Washi Tape and other tapes like it.  We want you to create a layout or a card show casing fun and unique ways to use these fun new tapes! 
Our awesome friends at Paper Issues have created another FITkit that is going to knock your socks off!
As always one lucky winner from this Workout will get this kit for FREE!  However you can shop til you drop over at thePaper Issues shop and snag this kit along with lots of other goodies!
Remember to use code FITKIT for 20% off your total purchase!
