So, I'm desperate for inspiration yeah? Well first off this month I hit up a favourite challenge blog of mine, Show Us Your Stuff. They had a fun 'this or that' challenge a-happening and this is what I came up with.
A few close ups, especially of my hand made items including .. vintage and current Charms Creations, a couple of D-lish Scraps flair buttons, a crocheted heart, a chipboard arrow 'photo matt' I made with a template, thin chipboard and patterned paper, and then finally a wee circle embellishment which appears at the top left of the photo. The circle was from an ephemera pack in Photoplay's Cooper & Friends new pet collection which I mounted on some chipboard and then (very badly lol) applied glossy accents too.
Maybe I should add some journaling to my layout? Perhaps that's what's missing. Hmm I think I'll do that. Then at least I'll be happy putting it in Bear's album. Oh and heh guys I'm sorry about the pity party for one above. Yes I could delete it and start again but (a) I can't be bothered lol and (b) I think sometimes we should keep it real yeah.
This is the Show Us Your Stuff 'this or that' challenge ..
I went with the hearts, buttons, ribbon and stripes. It was actually kinda tricky. I went to add sequins then realised I had used buttons. Same same with the spots and stripes. Kinda tricky, but lots of fun. If you'd like to participate in the Show Us Your Stuff challenge you can find all the details HERE. Just don't forget to read all the details about using a hand made item on your layout.
Whatever you do, have fun!
