This layout was based on a challenge to use your favourite colour and it's complimentary colour.

My favourite colour is green and I had quite a few limey shades.  The opposite is a violet-magenta colour which featured in April's Glittery Hands Box sequin mix.

Sadly I am not allowed to play scrabble any more... H-Bird is such a hooligan!

Just a few more from my NSD marathon to share now...

Hairclip Holder

I've recently had a haircut and I am, apparently, unable to buy just two of something... I must have every colour!  So I needed a way to store these new accessories.

I pulled out some Swiss Dots ribbons in colours to match the Spring Ribbons Poppies and set to work.

I used two barbeque skewers to give the Poppy ribbon some stability and hung lengths of grosgrain between them.  A few stitches here and there to secure things was all it took.  I added some 3mm grosgrain to hang the holder and added a couple of mini bows as a finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Not Very Good

This layout was made with an old and new theme, we were then asked to throw in a bit of gold too.

I've used a new stencil from Skull and Cross Buns and some old die cut frames.

My touches of gold come in the form of a label and a foiled banner.  I really enjoyed making this one even if the photo is a little bit cringey!

These Fingers

This layout uses an old sheet of black and white paper from My Minds Eye.  I bought it to colour in, which I did, and it then sat unused for a couple of years!

It was inspired by a challenge from the Cut Shoppe to back a cut file.  I also fussy cut a few of the flowers and popped them in behind my photo.

The labels are from Freckled Fawn and are another thing that have been in my stash for ages.  It feels good to get some of them used up.

This is another 'quick-use-the-cocoa-vanilla-supplies-to-make-space-for-more' layout!

I'm sure this was for an NSD challenge too but I can't remember which one!

Thanks for looking!

School Pic!

Cocoa Vanilla have a new release coming soon and that means I am making an effort to use up more of what I have to make space for the new goodies!

This one uses a few pieces from More Than Words and papers from 6x6 pads.  Check out that old school photo!!

The cut file is from Just Nick.  I left some of the negatives in place and only backed selected spots.  When I added it to my base layer I used a load of foam pads to give dimension and cause those gorgeous cast shadows.
