Well first of all I am SO EXCITED ... I won the June challenge over at ARTastic with my 'A day at the Beach' layout!!! YIPPEE!! We were away for the weekend and I had no internet so was THRILLED to come home and find out that I was the winner!! YAY again! Be sure to check them out as they have some great challenges every month.. http://artasticchallengeblog.blogspot.com/
Next is a layout I finished today ... another challenge between Miss Karen and myself! I set a little challenge to use the papers we bought together at the expo (Blast Off by Bella) and to use a die cut piece somewhere on the layout. Easy I know but it's school hols and I need easy at the mo! I am trying to use my dies more lately... I love them but don't get around to using them enough so I am going to try harder to use them on layouts!
ANYWAY.. back to the layout! I stuck some random alphas on a piece of cardboard and then used my Timmy colorwash (love that stuff). I then used some distress inks to highlight them. The papers, stars, words and rocket die cut are all Bella and the gears and type stamp are Timmy. Hope you like it!
