Today sees the start of our weekly Scrap Map challenge over on Creative Craft World AKA CCW, the mega talented Sue has put together this great sketch based on a Hotel brochure!
Just a quick reminder that the Cute and Cuddly card challenge is still running over on CCW until 1/02/2010
Everyone who knows me from blogland knows I have a real phobia of scrapping, daft I know and I don't know why but I almost break out in a cold sweat just thinking about doing a layout; however this layout really inspired me, especially when I saw this weeks challenge over on The Play Date Cafe of grey, greenand orange as I knew I had the perfect photo for the challenge as Yaseen is wearing orange and grey lol.
I was originally planning to cut up the photo into inchies but just couldn't bring myself to do it (I know, I know..) so I used my nesties labels die to make 6 "squares" to mat the photo onto and used Peeled Paint distress ink over a mask.. I used white Bazzil cardstock for the base and mixed up a glimmer spray using distress reinker and perfect pearls for the green, the silver splodges are from a pewter glimmer mist which has decided to stop spraying (again) so I flicked it onto the card instead! I have used Basic Grey papers and letters and journalling is written with Sakura pen. The star is a chipboard shape which has been in my stash draw for yonks which I coated with copper paint dabber, rock candy crackle paint and dried marigold and frayed burlap distress inks.
Now all I need to do is wait for daylight to take a decent picture of the layout so I can enter into the Allsorts "Male/Boy" themed challenge!!
**EDITED... there is now daylight, photo taken and added to blog!!
I hope you are proud of me Anita, finally got round to scrapping another layout lol!! It only took me about 6 months to get into gear ;-)
I have 4 wonderful children who keep me busy. I work full time in a hospital and for my "me time" I love to be creative.... making cards, stamping, calligraphy. I have regular promises and intentions to start scrapbooking but I am a bit nervous and scared as I don't quite know where to start, I have got as far as getting loads of photos printed and a few albums , loads of ideas but...
