DT stuff

Well here are my offerings with the Design Team kit sent to each of us from Lynn at Kraft Stop. The kit contained Making Memories paper, some Doodlebug cardstock, pink rhinestones, small green and white blossoms, a large gem-encrusted fabric bloom, acrylic word tiles, ribbon, epoxy stickers and a licence plate embellishment. I've tried to do something a little different to my usual thang as I already had the papers in my stash and scrapped with them already in the past. So here goes....

The first is a page of Ellie, tried to create a more clean and simple page to emphasise how plain gorgeous she is - my niecey gal don't need no embellishing lol!!!
The second LO is a bit different in the sense that I wanted to use as many of the different patterned papers as possible, but felt they were a little over powering all together, so thought this was a neat little way of introducing a bit of each to the page. Also altered the licence plate a little by distressing it with pink acrylic paint, as it felt a little stark on the page as it was. Close ups of the embellishments:
And finally I made two cards. One is nice and girly (please excuse the sqwonky shot for that one!), but for the second, seeing that the kit felt overly feminine – I challenged myself to make a more masculine card with it! I aimed for a kind of golfing argyle jumper feel – hmmmm think I kinda got there :) I’ve been a naughty girl today and had a sneak jump on the scales – I’m not supposed to weigh for the first time until Tuesday according to the system – but I will give you a little whisper that it’s looking good! Shhhhhhhh – our secret!!!

Also spent some time today playing with my camera shooting random things – and decided that I’m going to try to upload a couple of random happy shots each day to keep us all cheery through these cold weeks :) Aren’t you lucky?! It’ll be a little peek into my strange and random world for you anyway!!

I’ve also updated my slide show at the top of the page with my Chrimbo layouts I posted last week just in case anyone missed them :)

Until then, take care my blogeroonies xxxx

Ooh great work Nat :o)

I love that masculine card. I would never have used those papers to create a card for a man (that is if I even made cards!) but you have done it brilliantly.

Well done on the weight loss sweetie :o) That is brilliant news xxx
