Awesome…. I got another layout done!

On Friday Rangi hosted the ‘Friday Night Fun’ at Scrapbook Dreams… and it was a fantastic challenge :)

Step 1 (8pm): Choose a paper range and scrap with it.
The challenge being the majority of the layout must be in the range including embellishments (you may have to be creative if you don't have any pre-made ones in your range).

I decided to work with the ‘Happy Together’ range from Fancy Pants.fphappy

Step 2: Once you have your range an photo/s sorted, lay them out and take a photo:IMG_0965_1

Step 3: Create your layout and take a photo of it all completed and post it up in the gallery (by midnight).

Note:You may add additional bits and bobs to your layouts like buttons,rub-ons etc... but keep in mind the challenge is to use a majority of the range you have chosen. Be creative!

Then it was time to go and get creating!  We all know that chocolate helps the creativity… but on Friday night I think it was the strawberries that did it for me!! LOL

Mikayla made us a bit of a treat… extremely yummy!IMG_0970_1

And while we were all creating Rangi gave us a twist!!  With the range you are using- Create a gift tag!
It must include: To & From

Hmm… that one had me thinking!  I actually did get both my layout and gift tag done and photographed by midnight… but as we all know it’s really hard to photograph layouts etc and get the colours right with artificial light so I’ve re-photographed them over the weekend.

Here’s my layout:IMG_1019_1

I used some photos taken of my sister (Katey) and Miss Krystal a few years ago.  Krystal was born the day before Katey’s 17th birthday and they’ve always been really close.

I used the patterned paper to make my title along with a bit of a Prima flower branch:IMG_1020_1

I made the heart by covering some chipboard with patterned paper and then die cutting it:IMG_1021_1

A couple of pearls and some more flowers and it was all done!

The tag came together really easily… must try making tags etc again after completing a layout:IMG_1018_1

I used some of the patterned paper and Prima flowers and then I covered some more chipboard with patterned paper and die cut the wings.  A few alpha stickers on the wings gave me the ‘To’ and ‘From’ and then I just added some cool fibres.

I enjoyed working with this paper range so much I made a card as well…. always good when the creativity flows!IMG_1017_1

And here’s all my projects together… not bad for a couple of hours in the craft room:IMG_1012_1

Thanks Rangi for a brilliant night!!
