By The Cute and Girly Challenge 4

wow!! can you believe it is 2010 already!! I know It makes me sound really old, but where did last year go!!
Well, its the start of a new month, start of a new year, and start of another new challenge over at By The Cute and Girly Debby has set the challenge for this month and appropriately the challenge is : NEW

This new home card was made by cutting some of the "Papermania scalloped 8x8" " down to create the card base. I have used "American Crafts - the colour of memories" on the inside of the card, and finally I have used some "sugar nellie" manga kids and I have coloured them with whispers pens.

This was a very quick card. The topper and the little house are from my "Kanban - Lorali Faries kit" the paper was from my scrap box...I think it is "Sandylion" I have just added some faux stitching and the pearls as a finishing touch. I have made this for a friend who is in a world of her own and loves the thought of everything fairytale!!! so this is perfect for her.

Finally this is a page I have done of my wedding cake. I have been married for almost 10 years and this only the 2nd page I have done of my wedding album. This page is of my wedding cake. The background is done using "HOTP" and I have inked around the edges using "Distress ink - worn lipstick" again the papers are from the bottom of my scrap box. Then I have made some flowers using my new flower punch! Can you believe I have been crafting all this time and I have only just purchased a flower punch!! and finished off using some swirl peeloffs. The journaling tells the story of my Mum making the cake and then my sister in law decorating it.

Please pop over to By The Cute and Girly and have a look at the rest of the design teams amazing designs!! also as usual we have some totally amazing prizes on offer so please come and join in with us! We cant wait to see your creations!

  21. Hi Juls, I love your Manga card and how you have coloured them with whisper pens. Really love your 'quick' fairy card, that is awesome and can't believe (but could if it were me) scrapping your 2nd wedding page in 10 years. Just imagine how your page would have looked if you scrapped it 10 years ago! Wishing you a Very Happy New Year, keeleyxx

  24. great projects Juls! I love the whimsical house. super cute. And I had to chuckle about your 2nd layout of your wedding. I am the same way. Behind in my scrapbooking.
    Hope you are well!

  25. It is NEVER too late to scrap your wedding cake! What a FABULOUS layout! At this rate you'll be married 50 years and have 10 pics done!!! I wish you listed your email so I could tell you how much I appreciate all of your sweet comments - especially from someone as talented as you!
