Well this was my take on this months Challenge.

I decided to also take the challenge of using only scraps, which I did adhere to. The picture is of a friends niece that she gave me two years ago to scrap for her, well she gave me a few to scrap and this is the first one that I have done. I was more than happy with how it turned out.

I have used the nestabilites labels twenty inked and stamped them.

I machine stitched around the paper and the photo frame, which is a Webters Sticker.

Products Used:

Papers - My Minds Eye, Bo Bunny, Sassafrasslass, K & Company and unknown
Stickers - Basic Grey Chipboard Urban Prairie
Rubons - Prima Reflections, Basic Grey L Urban Prairie
Flowers - Prima Sugar Blooms
Stamp - Prima
Alphabet - Petal Possibilities metal
Quote - Grants Archival Sticker book

Oh and if you noticed the slight peek of green and pink I do apologise about that, the rules seem to be blurred for some and I figured it was no different to using black or kraft when it comes down to the nitty gritty of it all. I can never figure out why some colours are classed as okay when DT members choose to throw it in to highlight their layouts, for some black might be their neutral as for me green seems to be mine.

Thanks for looking and feel free to comment, always look forward to reading what others have to say.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
