Living Everyday

Hi everyone. The new challenge over at Butterfly Crafts is up at the blog. This month at BC, the challenge is all about a spring colour palette. You are to make a layout using these lovely colours:

Please go HERE to see the details and the beautiful samples from the Design Team. This is my take on the challenge:

I loved this challenge. The colours are so pretty and a good combo and I had fun putting this layout together. I misted, inked or coloured some elements like the blue flowers, the circle frame and the pink paper lace to match the colours in the palette. Even the word 'EVERYDAY' in that rub ons quote was coloured in to match the blue from the palette.

So do check out this challenge at Butterfly Crafts blog and submit your take and you could be the Guest DT in June!!!

Week 2 Challenge - SIL 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!

It's Week 2 of the Scrap-It-Lah's 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop and this week's challenge is brought to you by... ME!!

This week I have an altered challenge. Nothing too difficult, just an easy peasy one. All you have to do is alter a file folder. Easy right? Just find a paper, or otherwise, file folder and start altering.

Here is mine.

I made this...

\ /


Well.. I used the coloured one rather than the kraft. I made it into a photo album, or rather.. file.

The file is actually longer than A4, but I folded about 4 inches in to make pockets, cut away the extra flap and added a patterned paper page.

Some close ups...

So come on and try this challenge. You can make the folder into anything you want. But remember that this is a ONE WEEK challenge only, so you have until Thursday, 14th April.
Just fill up you name and URL in Mr Linky below for your submission or email me your take at yatiedin@gmail.com if you don't have a blog.

The winner of this altered challenge will be getting this Studio Calico's Babbling Brook kit

Then next Friday will be the start of Week 3, which means a new challenge. Please do come back here to see where to hop to next. In the mean time... happy altering!!

Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone!!

Finally I am able to upload my take on Wati's SIL Blog Hop Challenge. It's a birthday layout challenge and here's mine:

As you can see, I don't have a picture for the layout. That's because Nadiah's birthday will be on the 26th of this month and I wanted to do a layout on that. So I've left the photo and the journaling blank. I will post the finished layout after her birthday.

But here are some close ups of the layout.

I have just now notice that one of the gems has slid down the back of the butterfly. Will have to go and fix that.

The tiny little calender page I got as a freebie from Smidapaper.

The chipboard alphas are a mixture from Basic Grey and Maya Road. They were originally plain chipboard and I misted them with Glimmer Mist (Orange Poppy), but they were a little muted. So I inked them over with Tim Holtz Distress ink (Rusty Hinge) for a richer colour. Then I stamped the letters with Tim Holtz tickets rubber stamp with Blue Teal StazOn.

I love this cute number flags stickers from Jenni Bowlin. Most of the items are from Studio Calico March add on kit - Mossy Knoll.

There are still two days to the challenge so please check out Wati's blog and submit your layout. Then come back here on Friday for the 2nd week of the blog hop.

Happy scrapping!!



Here's the LO with the photo of Nadiah, taken on her 9th birthday
