Blooms and Bling

Yay getting back into my scrapbooking again now, nothing like a challenge to get you started. This is a layout that I started weeks (OK being honest MONTHS) ago and never got round to finishing cos I wasn't quite happy with the start. I'm glad I left it alone though and didn't just plough ahead and ruin it or atleast not be happy with it. Sorry I've had to pixilate the photo again, I'll try and do my next layout with a different subject in the photo so you can see the layout to it's full potential.

I have to say this is one of my favourite layouts (yep I know I think I've said that about them all lol, but I can't help it they're all special in different ways.

Anyways onto inportant things... like the challenges...

I would like to enter this layout in The Pink Elephant Scrapbook Challenge #23, the challenge was to make a layout using your favourite colours and favourite embellishments. This was actually harder than I thought it would be, the colours were a doddle - PINK and GREEN ofcourse, always a winning combo with me. But the favourite embellishments was some what more of a challenge, I'm a bit of a magpie when it comes to scrapbooking supplies and often HAVE to buy things just cos they're too pretty to leave on the shelf, but I then bring them home and can't bear to use them, so I had loads of favourite embellishments so choose from but it was a really tough decision, and the pressure was on to make the layout look good so I wouldn't have 'wasted' some of my favourite embellishments. Yep I think I can be declared officially loopy lol.

I would also like to enter this layout in One Stitch at a Time Challenge #29 - Blooms - Butterflies - Blings. I loved this challenge and it fitted in perfect with the embellishment challenge at the Pink Elephant.

Supplies: 'Wild Raspberry' Cardstock Stickers by K&Co, 'Wild Raspberry' Papers by K&Co, Double Dot Card by Bo Bunny, Rub-ons by Doodlebug, Gems by Anita, 
Extras: Chipboard Letters from Stash 

The embellishments I chose were some K & Co Cardstock Flower Stickers, complete with lots of glitter and gems, I loved them they were so pretty, I loved them so much that I used an entire pack just on this one layout!!! I also used the matching paper - I know how co-ordinated am I (doesn't happen often lol)

Anyways hope you like it, I'm now off to tear my room to pieces looking for some stickers that I bought a few weeks ago to do a wedding card and now I need them have disappeared (so can't wait for the day that I can have a craft room lol) XOX
