Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everybody! I just love the beginning of a new year! It is fresh, sparkly and new and brimming with wonderful opportunities. It is a special time where we can reflect on and be grateful for the year that has passed and look forward to beautiful experiences ahead!

Over at ARTastic, there is a new scrappy challenge to enjoy! This month, our inspiration will come from "Luncheon of the Boating Party" by Renoir.

Here are the details...
For an extra 6 bonus points try and work the following into your layout;
1. Scrap a celebration - 1pt
2. Three or more people in the layout - 2pts
3. Food somewhere on the layout - 3pts

My layout is called "Sweet". This was a lovely challenge and I thought the extra criteria were fantastic! I scrapped a photo of my girls and my Mum while we celebrated Caitlyn's birthday... she is the one without the crown. I have all of the criteria covered - three people, a celebration and I have food (cupcakes) on the gorgeous Webster's paper. I added some pretty flowers too. I really enjoyed having some time to scrap again! Thanks for stopping by! xxx

Christmas Is Just Around The Corner...

A new month means a new challenge over at ARTastic. December's inspiration will come from the painting 'The Mystical Nativity' by Botticelli. Here are the extra details...
Diva Demand for an extra 6 bonus points try and work the following into your layout;
1. Angel/s - 1pt
2. Gold embossing (somewhere on the page) - 2pts
3. A stable - 3 pts

I found this month to be challenging, but once I got the stable and embossing sorted, it was all systems go with the flowers and papers! Here is an image of the Botticelli and my take on the challenge. Thanks for stopping by! xxx
