A new month means heaps of new challenges. Check out this one over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge:
This is April Fool’s day – scrap about a trick or prank that was either pulled on you, a friend, or that you pulled on someone else!! If you have difficulty with this, you could alternatively scrap about a surprise you experienced or that you prepared for someone else (surprise birthday party??)
I didn't have any photos from pranks or jokes played on me so I chose to scrap a page about my little girl's 7th birthday last year. We surprised her with a fairy themed party at Ivy Cottage (which is a very popular venue for children's fantasy parties near where we live - the cottage and the beautiful grounds are decorated as a fairy grotto. It is truly magical, a little girls dream)
Sophie had the beautiful dress as one of her birthday presents. We invited 10 of her friends (all girls ofcourse) and she was a fairy princess for a couple of hours. She was absolutely thrilled and still talks about it often and is planning her 8th birthday at the same place :)
The papers that I used are from Echo Park. I had a lot of fun handmaking a variety of flowers for the page and I kept to the pink, white, black and grey colour scheme throughout. The paper and crocheted doilies are from Purple Pumpkin and the little window is a 'Prima' resin. I dry brushed some white gesso over all the elements to tie everything together.
If you are looking for a challenge head over to AFSC and have a go at this one. It is lots of fun and there are great prizes to be had.
Also there is a new challenge up at 'Stuck' sketches. I can't show you my DT layout for this one yet because my page is in the second reveal later in the month. But do pop over and look at the inspirational pages from some of the other DT members and maybe have a go at this challenge yourself. We'd love to see your pages :)
