You Spin Me Baby SGC challenge using OUAS

I have been having giagantor printer problems for the last 2 weeks so I couldn't use my fabby dillybeans image for my challenge project for Southern Girls.  So I bit the bullet and admitted failure this morning and decided to do a layout as I had some photos of Angus printed that I wanted to use.

I need some inspiration for a design - I already had my boysy scraptastic kit on my desk so I popped over to Once Upon a Sketch to see what they had going on this month and found an awesome sketch, I knew I would.

So I got to work and here is what I ended up with....

 I started with white bazzil cardstock which I sprayed with Mister Hueys Honour Society using a hexagon stencil then sprayed again with Mister Hueys Silver.  I then cut strips from a couple of patterned papers to do my layers.  I then started choosing my embellishments.  The chipboard stickers are Simple Stories daily grind and the veneers are exclusive to the kit I think.  The flair is out of my stash but I am pretty sure I got it from The Paper Doll Company.  I wrote 6 on it with a DVD marker.  The letters for my title are Vera Thickers in Sunflower.

So I guess that is wrap :)  Thanks loads for popping by and Happy Scrapping.

DT Call - SGC are on the hunt.......... For our Current Challenge click HERE

 Hard to believe that 6 months has nearly passed since our last call. We are on the hunt for some  DT Members for our happy little group.
If you think you may be interested, check out the following info.......... 

 We are an open blog so any type of paper crafters can apply. We are a 3 weekly challenge and the team is split into 2 groups so you are only required to do 1 project per month most months. We have lots of fabulous sponsors and sometimes they give us images to work with (YAY). So check our sponsor list and if these companies are your thing. If you are a scrapbooker, PLer or OTP artist you will not need to work with the images unless you want to.

We are pretty chatty, about loads of stuff not just crafting, so be prepared to work those fingers in our group message centre on Facebook. 

You will need a blog.

You will need to be able to use digital images if you are a card maker.

You will need to be a member of facebook as this is where we do our communicating.

We are a very supportive, tight knit group so being a part of our DT is like being in a secret club.

The term is 8 months with an option to reapply

 If this sounds like a DT that may appeal to you please contact Lou at THIS EMAIL ADDRESS LINK!!!!!! (southerngirlschallenges{at}gmail{dot}com) with an email telling us a little about yourself, any current (if any) DTs you are on, fav techniques/ syles that sort of thing and attach your fave 3 projects for us to see and also add a link to your blog please. We are looking forward to perusing the hundreds of applicants emails and eagerly await all your lovely blog links :) Closes 31st July 2014
