Purple Pumpkin February

Well I finally managed to finish my layout for the Purple Pumpkin February Challenge....What do you think?
I used some of the tickets I purchased back in January, the gorgeous Big Owl button, the spotty pink button and some pink and white twine all from Purple Pumpkin, to embellish this layout! I used the twine to wrap around the organza ribbon that I cut and frayed to replicate the streamers on Bella's new Dora Bike.
Some of the other embellishments are from Handmade Halo and these are the gorgeous resin roses and the beautiful crystal flower. The doileys I dyed myself.
Hope you like it! Happy Scrapping! xo

February Challenge!

This month, February, is the month of LOVE! So your layout is going to include:

  • a photo of something or someone that you love

  • at least one heart

  • red as the predominant colour (other colours are fine - but red must be the main colour)

  • some buttons (more than one!)

  • journalling (if it is hidden, I need to see where - you can send me a photo that will not be published if you don't want it to)

  • ribbon

So, what do you think about that? I can't wait to see your layouts! Don't forget, send them through to by midnight on the last day of the month (and don't forget this month is a short month!

My example will be up over the weekend!
