Creative weekend :) and an OMG

Had such a blast over the weekend playing at the A Million Memories Crop. So many challenges, classes and inspiration. I'm still completing a few things off but this is what I've managed so far.

Somedays - this was a challenge to use inchies, I've cut mine from chippy, randomly placed them over my background, gave it a quick coat of creamish paint and popped on a branch mask and highlighted around the edges with pink. Love the effect and how this Layout turned out.

Searching for Flowers - we were given a list of requirements sort of like a recipe challenge and an hour time frame. Amazing what you can produce in such a small timeframe.

Peace - started off as a sketch, but ended up looking nothing like the sketch, starting to become a habit. Just a fun LO on Dea, I've covered the background PP with vintage sewing patterns. Love how it tones down the brightness without taking away the pattern.

Mini Me - Food Menu Challenge, you don't want to know what I ended up picking as food, but it worked out that I needed to include Glitter, stripe paper, brads, handwritten journalling, and a black and white photo. Just playing around with some of the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love and a little Nikki Silvis.

In My Dreams - Ad inspiration, loved the design of the ad, one large block and smaller blocks underneath. Added a few other extras and used more Webster's, just have to love those papers and trims. Thanks Gilly for getting them for me ;-) I've cut some butterflies from Websters vellum and attached them over the top of the pp butterflies, gives a nice movement I think.

And this is my OMG, I don't really like to Toot about anything but this is somethign that is totally unexpected and incredible to see. I never ever thought I'd have something in the Top 10 at 2Peas but to get Layout of the Day, that's just wow.

So thanks for letting me share.

I'll be back with more fun things from the crop too

That is soooooooo wonderful Nic, it is such a gorgeous layout too. I had my Taronga Zoo double layout featured in the Top 10 a couple months ago, but me being as clueless as I am and all, didn't think to copy the page and so now the memory is lost forever. Oh well, will have to try hard to get another now LOL. Is there anywhere you haven't been LOL? Congrats once again xx.
