New Year, Resolutions & Honourable Mentions

Hi There!!

I hope you all had a FAB xmas & New year!! I have been on holidays at Hamilton Island for the past week. We had a great time. It is so beautiful there. We went snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef & got to feed the beautiful tropical fish!

While I was away I found out that I recieved an honourable mention for the Scrapbooking Memories Masters competition!! This was my first crack at Masters so I am pretty rapt to get a HM. This was the LO
I luv the colour combo of purple & teal with some black to make it pop! The paper is just some left over Websters Pages Ladies & Gents & Little Yellow Bicycle Clothsline. I have used some purple paint & just wiped it on roughly with my finger for texture. Then spltted some teal glimmer mist & stamped using a butterfly & script stamp

The big teal flower was handmade by cutting various size circles from teal material then melting the edges with a heat tool. I sprayed the doily with a teal glimmer mist & added some kindyglitz to the Bo Bunny butterfly trinket. all the flowers are Prima

This LO was a colour challenge I put together at Scrapz.Biz for the Scrap a Rainbow challenge. You still have plenty of time to enter. Entries close midnight 31st January. The more challenges you complete gives you more entires into the draw for the $20 & $10 voucher

I have used Bo Bunny Father Christmas collection, Prima vine & Prima resin frame which are all available at Scrapz.Biz
Did your xmas table look this good?? I know mine certainly didn't!! One day I would luv to go all out with the xmas decos!
