ARTastic Challenge Blog

There is a new challenge blog and the idea is so clever...
It showcases art by the Masters and then uses these images and paintings as inspiration for your scrapping.
You can check out more here.

I am looking forward to having a go at the challenge, even though April is almost over! This month, the blog is looking at the artist Gustav Klimt. So if you are a little arty and feel like a different challenge, have a look at some wonderful paintings and layouts for inspiration...

Little Girls

Here are some pictures of a mini album/card I made last month. It began as a handmade challenge over at D2U and after that, I had to make one for myself! It is basically a fold out card made from a half a sheet of bazzill. The six sections are embellished with patterned papers, photos and other goodies. I turned mine into a mini album and secured it with a ribbon. My friend Tracey took the photos of my girls... don't the photos look amazing?
Thanks for looking! xxx

Fairy Goodness

A dose of fairy goodness has arrived at the blog turned site Enchanted Scrapbooking. They have gorgeous kits and a lovely forum, blog and gallery. Yesterday I did a layout for the April challenge using my "fairy name" as inspiration... my name is
Bramble Icefrost. I drew this picture when I was 19, in 1994...
and have now featured it in a layout. Thanks for taking a look! xxx
