new challenge blog - SA style.

6:20:00 PM

well today marks a very special day in South Africa. it took the vision of 2 very special scrappers to come up with a challenge blog unique and "eie" to SA. and those 2 scrappers are Russian. they are talented. they are unique. they are amazing. they love SA. and it's special for me that they chose me to be a part of that very special project they launched today! so thank you to evgenia and svetlana - both scrappers i have admired for a long long time now. and so Scrap africa was launched. i am sure you will be thrilled to check it out and to play along and be challenged. for our first sketch we were given a really cool single page sketch to work with... of course battling to work on such a small scale i stretched things out and turned mine into a double. and here it is - to see the single page sketch head on over to the site and leave some love...
i had fun with this layout. not only did i make my own patterned paper but i used something i never thought i would....itsy bitsy little flowers. yeah you heard me...
these little flowers are the passion of Kim from Olba. and she loves them. and i kinda think i see the attraction after adding them to this layout. now don't get me wrong - i won't be doing this all the time - but having them just in the right place makes for something really special.
then there's the super cute little card stock cut outs from Glitz to combine with my colour scheme. don't you just love that balloon, a little basic grey rub-on and again a little flower.
my background card stock was splatted with gold perfect pearls and that i-am-in-love-handmade-paper was made using pearly card stock and distress stains and some secret weapons.
so there you have it. please hop on over to the scrap africa blog, share it with your friends and be inspired. i hope you are having a fabulous week creatively and spiritually!
i am still restoring...
