Hello fellow bloggers :)
Hope you are having a great day. I recently had the privilege of meeting up with a crafty friend. I had tried several times to visit, but it just never worked out. On my way home I was buzzing with all the ideas I hope to work on - the inspiration I came away with that day was incredible. Being able to talk through and share ideas was such an uplifting and inspiring time, I can't wait to go back on another visit.
This week at Through the Purple Haze Challenges, there is an Indigo Blu challenge, and an Anything Goes sponsored by Joanna Sheen.
Having come back recently from holidays, and having seen my friends beautiful scrapbooked pages, I was determined to start scrapbooking my memories. So this weeks alternative challenge at Through the Purple Haze Challenges of Anything Goes, couldn't have been a better week to start! Here's what I started with:
A Zutter Cover All 8x8 Flat Spine White
Some strips of coordinating paper, and some white paper with a border punched out.
This is it all stuck down.
One of these beautiful papers had a large image of the ice-cream in the corner. I cut it out and layered it with some cerise pink cardboard.
I cut out part of a photo from our holidays and punched a slightly larger blue card with the beautiful Martha Stewart corner punch.
I stuck the layered paper onto the cover, and stuck on the layered ice-cream.
I then stuck on some letters to spell "summer" and "2013". I also put some washi tape down where I would put the photo, just to make it interesting! ;-)
I found some lovely embellishments that tied in well with the colours. Whatever colour I needed for an embellishment, if I did not have something suitable, I just punched out a flower in the same card as the letters.
So why not pop over and check out the blog "Through the Purple Haze Challenges", the first two challenges go live today 15th July at 10am GMT. There are some fabulous prizes up for grabs - for the Anything Goes the prize is some lovely Joanna Sheen goodies, and the prize for the Indigo Blu challenge (you can see my entry here) is an Indigo Blue prize.
Well worth a check!
