Allsorts - scrapbook page

This week at Allsorts the challenge is to make a scrapbook page and for me that really is a challenge, I don't normally do photo pages and I'm seldom pleased with the ones I do.
Oh well, at least I had a great photo to start with, my daughter's boyfriend and my sister's youngest son just happened to dress the same =), love them to bits!

GDT butterfly creation

This morning I am guest designing for Simply Magnolia. The challenge is to create a bag with butterflies, and of course use a Magnolia image =). I made the paper bag from white cardstock and decorated it with Tim Holtz dp, die cut butterflies and flowers from IamRoses. The pearl spray is home made. Image is coloured with Distress Markers.

Lovely hanglar or sweet magnolia - anything goes 
Natalie & Amy - Anything goes

Allsorts - inspired by a song

This week at Allsorts Emma wants you to be inspired by a song. Well, I'm a sucker for the golden oldies so I decided to go for "It's my Party" from the album I´ll cry if I want to by Lesley Gore, 1963.

I made a new cover for a packet of tissues, handy for wiping tears and such :)
Paper is Tim Holtz, flowers from Wild Orchid.
So, what's your song of choice?

Other challenges:

christmas card

Thought I might post a cuddlier christmas card than the previous one - that depends of course on how you define cuddly ;)

This one is for the challenge Black Magic at Lili's little fairies.

 I also found that Patti's creations has an embossing challenge. Works for me =)

SFTW - starting christmas early

Well, I already have, I've managed a couple of cards already (not published yet, all in due time hehe). But for the challenge at Stampin for the Weekend I'll show you this creation: Kenny K image on silvery paper - shines fantastically IRL but is hopeless to take a good photo of, you know how it is. The Christmas stamp from Panduro, stamped with white ink took three days to dry cause of the paper, but hey it's only September ;)


other challenges:
crafty catz - christmas
the poodles parlor - here come the girls
cutie pie - no flowers
papertake weekly - anything goes

Allsorts - anything but square

This week at Allsorts the theme is Anything but square so I figured I might as well do something that's definitely not square - a pin cushion :)

I made the base from an empty roll of double-sided tape, filled with cotton, covered with lace and put a fancy bow as decoration.
