For The Girls - Anything Goes!!!

Well its been a great start to the month I have actually completed 3 pages already, two I can't share yet.

Over at Colorful Creations we have plenty of challenges going on at the start of the month with a couple of extra's in the middle of the month.  And YES you have the whole month to get them done, so no need to feel rushed, I love not being rushed!!!

This month I thought I would kick off with our Design Team members Anne's Challenge - For the Girls.

Photo is of my DD when she was  about 2 playing outside with a dog a few months before he passed.  He was such a great dog to have around kids and is sadly missed, even now.

 I have used a combination of papers from Theresa Collins Vintage Finds and Prima Rondelle Collections.

 Picture has a MME overlay from Lost & Found Range.

Since we had a discussion in the forum over at CC I have decided to challenge myself a little by scrapping on a shoe string budget.  In total I have used $5.20 in papers and not only created this page, also a Tag and Card.  Embellishments are just from my stash so no extra outlay there.

Embellishments used:  MM eyelets, Prima pebble, Dusty Attic chipboard, Twine, JB Paint, Autumn Leaves Stamp, LilyBee alphas, MME Transparencies and Tim Holtz cardstock.

My Tag was created for Rachael's Tag Challenge.

I have made it for someone who unfortunately is going through Lymphoma.

Embellishments used:  Provo Craft Black Metal Alphas, MM Label & Stickers, MME Stamp, Ribbon, Ink,  and Glitter, Kaiser Bloom and Brad.

Thanks for looking and for your comments that you've have left on my previous work, they are always appreciated.  Hope you have the chance to drop by CC and play along.

Bye for now
