Another for the Girls!

It is my turn to post over at Purple Pumpkin today so here is my post and a new page for you:)

Brrrr its freezing cold here in NZ this morning - great weather to stay indoors and craft (I wish) but my daughter has her school cross country event today so I will be standing in the cold cheering her on. I should get some good photos anyway :)
I have a girlie page to share this morning. Over at 'Scrap the Girls' the current challenge is a quote. Here is my page - full of Purple Pumpkin goodies!


I used my spray inks and new 'Dylusions' (Ranger) mask for the background. I love making my own 'arty backgrounds' with inks, masks and stencils. The gorgeous yellow and denim flower that I used as the focus for my embellishments is ofcourse from Purple Pumpkin. I pulled it apart to remove the smaller flower and little button from the centre. I replaced these with a larger blue spotty PP button and used the little yellow flower on the corner of my other photo to balance out my page. I used the green PP tickets to emphasise my title - I have a Tim Holtz ticket stamp (designed for the ranger ticket stamp set) that fits perfectly on these PP tickets too. The little green doily peeping out from behind my larger photo was a perfect colour match for my photos. I often cut my doilies in half to spread them out further - no use covering up something that pretty now is it??
Have a great day - wrap up warm if you are in NZ and try to find time to snuggle up indoors and craft:) Oh and if you are interested in PP goodies yourself they are having a sale on Friday this week. Head over to their blog for the details!
