Time for a Puzzle Challenge!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!!

There is lots of fun and frivolity happening over at the Frosted Designs Facebook Page today - all weekend there are new games and challenges being put up, and also on their blog, so swing by both and check it out!

OK, peeps - this it the Puzzle Challenge I have put up over on the Frosted Designs Facebook Page.
You have to use this Puzzle to create your layout:

So, on your project you have to use as many of the following elements as they choose, but you must include all of the elements.

  • Bird/s
  • A frame of some sort – any shape, size etc.
  • Paint/Ink/Mist Splatters
  • Flower/s

But wait, there's more:  here is a picture to draw some more inspiration from:

When I saw this picture, I just had to use it, as I have always loved little VW bugs – just something so kitschy and romantic about  You can use anything you like in this picture as your inspiration - the colours, the  VW, the heart...anything at all!!
Here is my sample:

As you can see, I have taken inspiration from the colour palette provided, loved using all the girly pastels, and the rainbow on the heart – my background paper has a gorgeous pastel rainbow.  I’ve included some Huey’s Mist splats, a resin bird, loads of flowers, and I’ve framed my photo with a handmade chipboard circle, which I wrapped some fabric and some misted muslin around to give a nice shabby feel to my layout (thanks Gilly-Anne Lester for the Inspritation!)

I have used some gorgeous Webster's Pages from their Sunday Picnic Range, and of course some stunning Wow Chipboard - The Masquerade Mask C1295 and the Block Alphabet Lower Case C1389.  All I did with these pieces was cover them with some Adironack Dauber in Cool Peri, then I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam - Tidal Pool to add some Aqua glilmmer.  The gorgeous flowers on this layout are a mixture of Kaisercraft Paper Blooms, Manor House Creations Flowers and  Prima.

That's it from me - hope you enjoy the challenge, I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!

Firstly, the Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs this week  is a Recipe Challenge

Look through your stash and include
at least 4 of the following 8 on your project:

Seems pretty easy doesn’t it?

I actually had forgotten all about this challenge, in the hub bub of my life at the moment – honestly there is so much going on here at the moment, I can’t even think straight!! 

Anyways, I HAD recently completed this frame for my Mum for Mother’s Day – which suited the criteria perfectly … it was my sample!!


It includes Rubons, Glitter, Flowers and Stickers!

What are you going to create with the recipe?

Also, there is some Scrappy Fun which has kicked off today on the Blog and their Facebook Page.  Loads of challenges for you to sink your teeth into – all in celebration of  National Scrapbooking Day!  There are some fabulous prizes, so make sure you check it out!
