Well, here I am , back again with another post, wonders will never cease!

Unfortunately, I didn't get through to the next round of the Designer contest, but I did get through to the next round of the Layout Contest and here is my layout for this week's entry:

I was actually really pleased with this but as to whether it gets through to the next round?  Who knows!  The voting poll is now up so if you are able, it would be really good if you would click on a couple of buttons and go vote for me!  The link is here so why not go along and have a look?  Even if you don't vote for me, there are some stunning layouts over there.  If you haven't already registered at The Studio, you will have to register in the forum to vote though.

Anyhow, I then decided to enter the hybrid contest, which is something new for me, never having done a hybrid layout before.  Mind you, I suppose making cards is, to a certain extent, somewhat similar, although I tend to do more stamping/punching/die cutting and embossing than using digital items.  I ended up using the kit we were given for the layout challenge, Early Morning Light by Piggy Scraps Designs, and this is what I came up with:

Everything except the brad was from the kit.  The layered flower was made using my Tim Holtz tattered florals die (which I love).  The photographs were taken at Wightwick Manor, about 25 miles from us, although I have just realised I have mispelt Wightwick in the layout.....Well, as long as no one knows where it is, nobody will spot this, right ;) ?!!!  The funny thing is, it looked like the wrong spelling when I made the layout, I checked up and it said it was ok.......I guess my brain must have been asleep at the time!

Finally, I have also continued with designing in the Second Chance contest, which is for those who didn't make it through the previous round, and this is my kit below.  I had yet another mental block when posting it to the gallery, so never mentioned exactly what was in the kit.  You know, if I had a brain, I'd be dangerous!  Anyhow, here is the kit:

It contains:

  • 6 papers
  • 4 flowers
  • Plastic flower
  • Tattered flower
  • Stone ornament
  • Flower overlay
  • Flower scatter
  • Tag and staples
  • 2 Staples
  • 2 ricrac
  • 4 brads
  • Vellum
  • Cluster
  • Circle Frame
  • Rectangle frame
  • Grass
  • 2 leaves
  • Ladybird (two colours)
  • Cloud
  • Sun

You can find it in the gallery here and the download links are:



If you do download it and make anything with it, I'd love to see it :).

Happy scrapping!
