Southern Girls 100th Challenge

Gosh, it is hard to believe that the time has flown so quickly since Tracy and I started this journey that is Southern Girls Challenges.  Over the last few years we have had lots of awesome DT lovelies and loads of fabby sponsors too.  It has been a learning curve but also lots of fun :)  This challenge we would love for all our lovely followers to join us for our special celebration challenge.  Just make a project that is about celebrating and link up in the link tool.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our our design team members, past &  present for all your hard work and constant inspiration. 
Also a HUGE thanks to all our sponsors over the years because, lets be honest, without lovely prizes we wouldn't have a challenge would we? ;)  

And FINALLY a HUGE, Extra LArge THANK YOU to all our entrants!!!! We love that you play along with us and we also enjoy seeing your gorgeous creations each challenge.

So here is to the next 100 challenges being as fantastic as the last x
Here is my card for the challenge using IVY from LACY Sunshine...

I love the image and the colouring but I am so angry at myself for deciding to add mist and ruining the card grrrrr!  I may have to do a remake on the background :)

Thanks for dropping by and happy scrapping

Mixed Media Gift Tins

I have decided to give handmade pressies to the females in my family this year.  I had lots of pencil tins lying around that i used to keep my prisma pencils in so I thought they would make an ideal starter point.  Here is what they looked like before their makeovers....

And here are a few of the finished tins ready to be filled with gift cards, personalised noteooks etc... 

 They are all quite different as I have made each one with a certain person in mind. They are all gessoed and then a layer of texture paste has been added using a stencil.  Once dry I have coloured them up with Tattered Angels glimmermist and glimmerglam.  Once I was happy with the base I started to add my papers and flowers and also some prima mistables.  I have then spritzed the flowers with Heidi Swap gold spray as it is by far the "goldiest" spray I have found to date.  I would love to know what you think so please leave me a comment.

Happy scrapping,

Lets Hear It for the Boys at Southern Girls Challenge

The current challenge at Southern Girls is all about the boys.  We have 3 awesome sponsors for this challenge, Make It Crafty, Iva Nova Chest and A& T designs Digis.  The design team has some awesome samples over on the blog.  I have used an image from A & T Designs for my card which I coloured with spectrum Noir markers......

I am totally loving these markers, cheap and so good!  I just wish I had more colours to fill in my colour gaps.

So that is about it, hope you all have a great weekend and that the weather starts to actually feel like November.

Happy Scrapping.
