Looks like I have got the challenge bug.... I think it is fun working with guidelines as at times when you have lots of scope that you spemd lots of time umming and ahhhing making lots of changes.
The brief... follow the sketch as shown, use ribbon as it is May, use some stamps and then doodle as the challenge is by the Doodlebug team.
I used my lace as the number strip, the smaller circles are journalling circles by Heidi Swapp, the clock and photo corners are also by Heidi Swapp. I stamped on the journal cicles with Blonde Moments stamps.
I enjoyed placing the ribbon on the clock to represent the
hands... something different to what I would usually do.
As for the doodling I took a brave step and drew stitching around photo and also placed hearts around the title... this was a big step for me as I feel scared that I may ruin the Layout...
I had a great time at the Crop yesterday and have started on my little gift for Paul I think I was a little optimistic as I thought that I would actually finish the book. I am lucky as Paul is on lates all week, so I have a few more day's yet.. I will post the book when it is completed, think I will use a slide show.. that is if the book comes out ok.
I have also started the Team Challenge on UKS which is about your favourite place and you need to use stitching.. I am so shocked as I can't even sew on a button and I have managed to sew all around the edge. I am going to use my yummy Berry Sweet papers as I will be able to incorporate my garden.... as I just love spending time in it... so fingers crossed it all goes well...xx Magic and Sparkle xxx
