It's flat and I don't like flat!

Good morning from a real cold Gauteng, South Africa. I've had my first mug of thick vegetable soup today and boy oh boy did I enjoy.........

I got these Prima flowers (paper and 65 in a packet) and it was flat. When I started to scrap 4 years ago, flat was OK. But now it is...... well just flat, and my hands itched to make them not flat!!LOL. The colors were lovely though and I knew I wanted to use them.

                                                       So I chose a few to play with........

                                                                stuck them together,

                           waited for it to dry and crunched them. Here we go.......Ready to use!!!!!!

One can stickle them, glitter them, ink them etc. etc.

They are available on this link:

Let's scrap sketch 4-11-12

I absolutely the the let's scrap website ( and use the weekly sketches in a lot of my work. Here is the sketch for this week:

and here is my take on this sketch:

I love the Almanac range from Prima and it really worked well with the only two photos I had of my baby of 10 years.I did a lot of rolling and distressing. Loved every moment.

Thank you for looking.

Cheapie Challenge from me to you!

Good morning on this cool Tuesday!

One can feel winter creeping up your legs as the days go by. Fortunately it's the Easter holidays now and at 6.45 am it's dead quiet in my house as all the children are still way back in dreamland.

To keep you busy in this coming long weekend I thought to challenge you with a challenge a very good friend of mine challenged me with. She gave me this:

and told me to do a double page layout with it! She wanted to keep the layout cheap (under R50). There are 5 Bazzill cardstock and only 1 (Yes ONE!) pattern paper in this pack, and the the Celbr8 3D car. I did my layout, but with only one double sided pattern paper my planning took most of the time!!! I wanted to use almost everything on both sides! The pack cost  R43.00. Click on the link to order your pack

There will be no judging on this one. A random draw will take place and the winner will receive a lovely paper stack.

I will post my layout on 30 April. The winner will be announced on 1 May 2012 here on the blog as well as on our facebook page.
