New Do

Okay, so it's an old do now, but man what a change when Shiloh first got her hair cut!

From super long, to shoulder length it now sits about halfway between these two and she's happy with that :)

This is my page for the Scrap Our Stash mid November challenge, here's the sketch and lists...

I used Amy Tan Better together collection, ScrapFX and Blue Fern chipboard along with Cocoa Vanilla flair and enamel dots.

Hope you like it!

What's your sign?

Hi all, This is my most recent layout created for the November 1st Scrap Our Stash challenge.
I've been meaning to do a layout about star signs for both my girls since they were little but never quite got there, so this was the perfect time...and how do you like my photo?!? Just as well looks can't kill! It was all just staged really - promise

I really need to take on board the message "less is more" but I just can't stop adding things - if you count the big star I made as part of the background, there are about 26 stars on this layout

 And here's the inspiration...
I started with a wash of Prima watercolour pastels, then added a bit more definition with a Tim Holtz crayon. I then added the brads (I wanted some more blingy ones but didn't have enough, so gold it was), then wound the gold thread around until I was happy with the design.
The chipboard stars are embossed with some of my favourite Blue Fern colours, and then it was just add a bow, title, journalling, and twenty something star sequins lol.

Hope you like it!
