Hello everyone...

You have hopped over to my Blog from Doris Lee Widder's Blog.

I hope that you have been enjoying the hop so far.

I have had a blast using the recipe
3 photos, 1 cardstock, 2 patterned papers, a wet medium, a mask, raw chipboard, 5 buttons (or brads), 3 rows of text, twine (or string), and 2 butterflies. Flowers, ribbons, and bling are all optional.


I made a mess with this layout and really thought outside the box. I recycled a kit packaging ox to create the base of my layout and then made a mess with some texture paste and a mask I made myself using chipboard I had hand cut (the flourish).
My two patterend papers are what creates my boarder on the layout. I used book page and a conrast patterned paper. I punched out half circle then adhered then down at one end and scrunched them. I used twine to create wobbled twisted lines and added some antique buttons for texture.  
My raw chipbaord is my hand cut title and I stamped the butterflies onto contrast paper.

The blog hop begins here: Scrapbook Kits With A Difference

Your next stop is here: Rebekkah Lynch's Blog.. so get hopping!
Thank you SO MUCH for joining us. I hope you have been inspired to go have fun and create.

Don't forget to drop by on Tuesday 24th to find out who the lucky winners are!!!
