Lovely @ The Memory Nest

Across at The Memory Nest, the Make it Monday sketch 35 goes like this...

But I am having page sizing issues...& what I mean by that is I want to keep changing the sizes of my working page, so I am not following the to break some rules sometime in life hey!!

So here is my 10" x 9" page about adorable little Pippi.

I have used this divine paper that I bought at Typo!  With lovely Heidi Swapp & Dear Lizzy embellies. And of course this wonderful Pippi photo!

Here is a little closeup...

Thank you for a lovely challenge Leslie & DT's!

Love in 1994 @ Let's Get Shabby...Arty!

Well Lets Get Shabby is back....hooray!!

And I have to say with the most innovative challenge idea I have ever seen - I love it!!

Colour Swatch Challenge!

PICK a photo from your photo gallery
UPLOAD it to  ‘Chip It’  to  get your swatch colours….   

CREATE a project  based on at least four colours from the colour swatches.
(The LGS gals tell you how to go about getting your own Chip It)
Here is my Chip It....I used a photo I took last weekend at my Jade & Pete's glorious wedding...

And here is my project...a 6.5" x 12" memory page...

I loved using these colours & working on a thinner size...and loved using this old photo of us as a young family, during the recent clearup of my dear departed FIL's home.

A fabulous challenge - thank you!

So using this glorious inspiration & this lovely photo of a Lily I had fun working on my page.

The paper is Grand Bazaar by Basic Grey...& I just LOVE it all...funny how that can work sometimes, dont you think?

My journaling reads -

After my nasal operation my dear friend Sue bought me a bunch of flowers - these beautiful & very highly perfumed Lilies.
As she gave them to me she said ' I forgot about how they would affect your nose!' We had a laugh & then they proudly stayed outside on the deck.
I used lots of bits & bobs in my stash including gold sequins, & gorgeous net from Leanne and Glimmermist too

Leanne also gave me these glorious vellum leaves & die cut stem made by her on her Silhouette.
Thank you for a lovely challenge Neha..
Do check out her shop..

Twine @ Use Your Stuff

The challenge over at Use Your Stuff is

Challenge #175 - Twine



So here is my card...

I used 3 colours of twine inside the card, so it shows through the die cut holes in the front. 

I also added twine to my buttons...and a sticker button that says 'For He's A Jolly Good Fellow'.


A happy & cheery card, me thinks!
