I scrapped!

Yep, I scrapped again.

I looked around for a suitable challenge to attempt, just to get me going again. Megan's Friday night challenge seemed just perfect. A good number of 'conditions' and a fairly short deadline - so I didn't have ages to fuss around with it.

So the 'rules' - Use either blue/orange or pink/orange as the main colour scheme. Use the title Summer Days and use some stickers that are at least a year old.

Fortunately I had some gorgeous heidi grace papers with a touch of orange in them and a piece of orange bling bazzill to get me started.

I'm not sure if I really like the finished result - maybe it's the orange... but anyway I loved playing with all the yummy heidi grace bits that co-ordinated so perfectly - even though I've actually used bits from two different h.g. lines. There's rub-on's and stickers and chipboard and plastic see through flower thingys and that little stripe of blue at the bottom is a silky fabric sticker.

I made the scalloped edge at the top using the edge of a fiskars template and the ultra shape-xpress. And I also added some orange rain dots by Cloud 9 cause they seemed to fit perfectly with the water photo and the orange theme.

Oh and the stickers that were atleast a year old - are the round epoxy things in the center of the flowers made by autumn leaves.

It feels good to be creating again ... only now I have a messy desk to tidy up!

Wow, this is great Beverly, and that you just whipped it up like that, fantastic. Love the blue and orange, just the right shades and amounts of each.

Loving the layout Beverley - might be a scraplift coming on! I think we all thought orange was something we wouldn't use!

Love it Beverley! The colours look so cool together and loving those papers and embellishments. Very cool.

It is a gorgeous LO Bev... as always! ;) I love those papers you've used - that particular blue and orange really seem to work well to bring that HOT Cromwell feeling out.
BTW... once someone put me onto the orange idea, I found I used it a LOT... watch out!!!! :)

Lovely layout Beverley. I think it looks great with the orange, although I admit it is the hardest colour for me to work with!
