Paper Secrets 19

Good morning
here's my layout I did for the challenge over at PaperSecrets.  Each week we are given an assignment for a layout. I really don't care if I win the contest, it's just helping me to do more layouts that I should have done a long time ago (or some new ones in this case). If you participate and follow the guidelines you advance to the next week. We started with 27 and 10 moved on again last week, these ladies are serious about their scrapping.  I will keep updating you as I go along. Who knows, I might not be able to participate one week and then I am out, but until then, I am scrapping my butt off, (they used a different word, but my blog is family friendly...hehehe
So now I am a bit intimidated about a lot of white
area on my layouts...I am a firm believer of covering
every little spot...well....
not anymore...I just love how this layout turned out.
First I must say that having little Miss Bella to scrap
is a perfect page in itself, but I am absolutely in love 
with this page.  The only thing I do not like is my 
journaling, but that goes without saying.  
I hate my handwriting.
The only time I used my E-Craft was for cutting the mat. 

What I used for the layout is in red:
raw chipboard (leave raw , paint, ink, etc....your choice)
border punch
stamped image
hand or machine stitching
glitter/micro beads

Now this page inspired another creation and if you tune in tomorrow you just may get to see what I am talking about.  I will have my Festive Friday post in the early morning, but you all may be in for another post sometime tomorrow too.


  1. Oh how PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY!!! I love the gentleness of it!!!

  2. So pretty Brenda. I don't like my handwriting either, but I think it will be very appreciated in years to come. Congratulations on keeping up with the challenge.

  3. Love your layout. Hope you don't mind I saved the sketck to go by. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown
