You Make Me Wanna Fly!

LOVED the week four challenge on UKScrappers this week, which was to….

  • Use turquoise and purple
  • Scrap yourself
  • Use butterflies or scrap about change, growth or freedom

I was so proud of the mannequin and wings, you wouldn’t believe how happy it made me 🙂 They were originally plain brown chipboard die-cut’s from two different packs from here and for some *crazy* reason, I had the idea to put them together. But they were bugging me and I couldn’t work out why coz I really like them, yet they just weren’t right and so I decided to co-ordinate them with the page and boy, what a difference that made!!! They are amazing!!! And the wings, oh so so sparkly…..which is the BEST way to be 🙂

Those that don’t believe in the magic will never find it…

…and this is the layout for one little boy who searches and finds a little of that magic day in, day out.

I created this layout based on the criteria for the January Week 2 Team Challenge on UKScrappers. For this challenge, we had to ensure we used ‘Something New’, ‘Something Old’ and ‘Bling’. My ‘Something Old’ was the doilie, lace, sizzix die (heart frame), music paper, patterned paper and letter stamps. My ‘Something New’ was the technique I used to create my organza flower. Although I have admired these flowers for a long time I have never actually dug out a candle and used this technique myself…but I love the flower I created and will certainly be making many more.

I fulfilled the ‘Bling’ element by putting diamantes in the centre of the flower and by adding diamante accents to the hearts.

What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday 136

quote

Lots of things on my desk this morning, but I thought I share with you this sneak of a scrapbook page I am creating 🙂 I have cut up some of my favorite papers and sewn them into a little patchwork scrapbook page! A while back I’d found an amazing quote on Pinterest, “You are You, that is truer than true, there is noone else more you’er than you!”, which I really wanted to use and had the *crazy* idea to use different letter stickers to create it!!! It took me so long!! But hopefully I will make a fabulous page to make all the tweezer pinching worth while!

Make sure you pop over to Julia’s Stamping Ground to see whats on lots of other workdesks this Wednesday.
