Clean & simple

Good morning! Among the chaos of the Christmas rush I've managed another challenge. I haven't made a clean & simple page for ages & with this layout I didn't want to take too much focus away from the photo so I kept if simple. Although I did do some hand stitching which I haven't done for a long time - sewing + me = not a good combination. So here is the inspo from the girls over at

Anyway thanks for dropping by once again! Have a great weekend.

The Paper Players #125

While I had my stash out today I thought I'd have a go at the current challenge over at  This is the colour challenge:

Three of my fave colours at the mo.......yum!   And here is my take:

The Orange Paperie & Co December Challenge

Hello peeps! I'm a tad over the Xmas card making at the mo & decided have a go at the December challenge over a  This is a sketch challenge & the criteria is to use the sketch as inspo, a Xmas pic & non-traditional colours.

I decided to go with a monochromatic layout this time & used some gesso, glimmer mist & liquid pearls, a little bit of embossing as well. And as you can see lots of distressing.

Thanks for dropping by & I hope you have a fantastic week :) xx
