Home is where the Heart is

I love this month's challenge over at the 123 Challenge Blog. Here it is -


This is a brilliant concept for a challenge - they give you three elements (colour, word, technique) and you have to include all three in your scrapbook page - simples! :o)

So here's my page ...


This picture of us was taken in the garden on our second wedding anniversary in August this year. We love our little home and I wanted this page to celebrate our happy place :o)

As you can see, all three elements in the challenge have been used - the colour yellow, mixed alphas and the word heart in the title. Here are some close-ups ...


I used a white marker and outlined with black for the title - I love the chicken wire stamp which I treated myself to at the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show at Ally Pally a few weeks back and have been using non-stop ever since! The black foam washer was lying on the ground outside the house one day so I put it in my pocket just in case ...


Lots of fun little bits and bobs here - a scrap of microfiche from a FrogDog kit, some packaging material, the little chipboard camera from a Quirky Kit, a snippet of Magic Mesh ...


The cute little acrylic house was from a Maya Road pack which was in my Scrapbooker of the Year prize from Scrapbook Magazine last year. Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Black Soot ...


Daisies always make me happy and I love the way the little peg gives another touch of the sunshine yellow. The miniature playing card came from my Useful Stuff drawer and the rub-on is so old that it wouldn't stick properly, but I quite like the distressed effect anyway!

So that's it, I'm off to link this up at the 123 Challenge Blog - why not have a go yourself? You  have until the 31st October ...

Cheerio for now :o)xxx
