Scrappin Patch Competition

Two new challenges each week over 6 weeks at Scrappin Patch
Currently at #4

These are my first entries starting on the 3rd week.  Yes week 3! No chance of winning  but I'll be putting more memories into albums and this week called on you to create a set of cards and a box to put them in - so that's cards for my stash too.

Challenge #3 Find inspiration from one of Scrappin' Patch new Design Team members. I chose Erin Blegen and her layout Putting on the Spritz. I can see a patterned background with a heavily distressed 12x12 over the top and in her yummy layers I see tissue paper, crocheted lace,'spritzed' glimmermist and bling bodied butterflies...b.b.b!:D I love bakers twine but sadly can't find mine amongst the mess in my scrapspace!!  I throughly enjoyed making the cards - the only new thing is the kraft cardstock for the base. 

For my layout I drew my inspiration from
 Nina Ostermann. I love her clean and spacious layouts, her use of light coloured papers on white backgrounds, less embellishments and dare I say it her trade mark paint/ink splat! 

Gorgeous huh? 

And my attempt.....
This kiddo is so cute, the son of a friend who's garden I was working in last year. His Mum says he does this all the I took along my camera one day hoping to capture him When he was suppose to be sleeping.

Just beautiful Lainie. For someone who is really a scrapbooker rather than a card maker, the cards are just beautiful. I love all the curled paper edges.
