Bonanza Challenge

Have you seen the latest challenge at Scrapbooking by Design?? if you haven't rush over there now... You still have until mid-night to complete and upload, or email your take on this sketch....

I was up until 3am this morning doing mine, silly A! I'm feeling just a little bit tired now!

My Page title is... My Girl. I have had this photo sitting around for so long that it was very tattered, scratched and marked. I had to repair it in photo shop.

The crocheted flower is snipped from an old hand made doily from yesteryear, it belonged to Andrews mum, and my guess is that maybe Andrews gran made it. It was just sitting around in a bag of rags, so I though I would put it to use!

This is the first time I have used skeleton leaves on a scrapbook page.

The butterfly's on my page are cut from patterned paper, I have added some dimensional glaze to help 'pop' them off the page a little. This button is part of the pattern on this paper, I have threaded cotton through the holes to add interest.

Here's my page, the journaling is taken from the song 'My Girl'

Your latest page with "your girl" is soooo pretty! The picture is lovely and everything around intensifies it even more. Such gorgeous details like the beautiful crocheted flower, the butterflies or skeleton leaves - I adore your work!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
