Sweet Smile

Hi everyone,
This week I have found another new place to play the 123 Challenge Blog. It's a really fun and simple concept - you are given a colour, a word and a technique and all you have to do is include all three of these criteria in a scrapbook page. Here is this week's -

SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE...

And without further ado, here is my page -


Another cute little picture of one of my great-nieces, Kerrilouise, from about 6 years ago. She looks just like her Nanny looked at the same age, very sweet, so perfect for this theme :o)

It was lots of fun splashing and stamping around to create a mixed media background on the plain white cardstock. I tried out some of the pens and inks from my latest FrogDog parcel, as well as gesso, crackle paste and some spray/inky stuff I mixed up myself and can't remember what I put in it!

Couple of close-ups -



  • Butterflies fussy cut from a Grace Taylor patterned paper pad
  • Flowers from 13Arts, Crafty Cow and local Pound Shop
  • I like to doodle around some of the ink splats and edges with a fineliner pen




  • Patterned papers and arrows cut from magazine freebies
  • Papermania doily - one torn into three pieces to make the most of it!
  • File Tab punch from Stampin'Up!
  • Bead trimming, buttons and washi tape from my stash
  • Alphas and polaroid frame were from my last Quirky Kit
  • Maya Road Singleton stamp set - three sizes of houndstooth check pattern
I had a lovely time with this - why don't you have a go too? You have until 30th September - plenty of time! Check out the inspiration here

Thanks for visiting, seeya soon :o)xxx

That is really gorgeous, I love the clusters of flowers and the doodles on the background!

P.S. Do you know some of your left sidebar images, including your profile photo, are overlapping the blog posts? Perhaps it's just my screen, but I can't read some of your text in the post because it's under the photo, so I thought I'd mention it. xxx
