Thank you

I am loving the new blog over at Merly Impressions. THey are a great super shop and the customer service is amazing and super super fast! Whenever I buy stuff from there it arrives really quickly! The best purchase I made was the 12x12 Kaisercraft paper holders! I have 4 of them and I think when I move I will need to buy some more!

I saw this challenge over at their blog and at first I was really not sure I was going to like this sketch! I never put pictures at the top and also I never really leave a lot of space at the bottom.  However, one of the reasons I like challenges is that they do push your creativity and make you think out of the box

I then decided to give this sketch a go and I am so pleased I did as I love the dreamy effect created by putting a picture at the top. I am definitely going to try this sketch again. I chose this picture of my daughter and I which was taken last week.  I hardly ever scrap current pictures because by the time I print them and file them it's like 2-3 months down the line. However, I am so loving instagram and with that application printing is a breeze.

The challenge can be found here:

Since I don't tend to leave a lot of white space as to me it feels trapped somehow I punched a few bits and added bits here and there. I added some stickers, Hero Arts pearls, some Websters embellishments and also some Studio Calico stickers and wood shapes.

  2. Hi Siggy! Wow what a gorgeous layout!!! So so happy you took the decision to have a go! I find that most of the time I create my favourite layouts by being pushed out of my comfort zone, and that's what challenges are here for!!! Really hope you'll take part in the next one! Thanks for playing along with us!!!
