100th Post Giveaway!!!

Hi There!

Well in just over a year I have managed to make it to my 100th post!! To celebrate my little milestone I am having a giveaway!! To enter simply become a follower of my blog (or already be a follower) & post a comment after this post. If you repost this giveaway you will get an extra chance for the draw. Just let me know in the comments section that you have! The giveway will run until April 30th. I will draw a winner May 1st! International peeps are most welcome too!!

Here are the goodies u could win

Some goodies include some new Cosmo Cricket papers & embellishments, Echo Park Victoria Garden papers & sticker sheet, Dusty Attic chipboard & MME stickers PLUS more!

Thankyou to all my followers & to everyone that leaves comments. It means a lot to me. Your love & support Rurly & Truly means the world XX

This LO is my first crack at The color room. I have always admired the colour palettes & the inspiration on this site is amazing!

I have used a mix of Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings with Websters Pages Everyday Poetry. The border is a Prima flourish stamp. I used my new Cheery Lyn doily die (my new fav product. It rocks!!) All flowers are Prima. The chipboard title is from Scrap FX
Luv these Prima Vintage trinket flowers
To alter the chipboard title firstly I painted with gesso. Then I sprayed a gold glimmermist lightly over the top. I used a prima ink coltsfoot stemens which I just randomly sponged to get the darker yellow colour

This next LO is for CSI-colorstoriesinspiration. This is a relitively new challenge site which is lots of fun. Here is the current 'case'

In addition to the colour combo you also need to include at least 2 criteria from the evidence section & at least 1 from the testimony. I chose ruffles, animal accent & creating waves from evidence & a haiku & footprints from testimony
The paper is Websters Pages Everyday Poetry collection & Prima pixie Glen.
The haiku comes from some Kaisercraft paper from the pink gelato collection
I don't know who wrote this haiku but it is pretty popular & I am sure you have heard it before.
The Websters bloomer is my ruffle & the pattern of lace is my waves effect. The gorgeous pink bloom is by Melissa Frances

Well I hope u will join in my giveaway!
