Wow another week gone by already !! time is flying by !!! I had some bad news this past week, my dads cancer has returned so my head is kind of in the clouds at the moment !! i'm trying to stay focused and positive and i hope he is doing the same It's so hard when we are in different countries! I'm trying to keep busy so my scrap room is now all packed up in boxes as my DH is giving me the bigger office upstairs that means ill have a window let some light in !!! So now i have to re paint my old room buy a new desk for it etc then re paint the office upstairs and set it all up, i bet it is going to take me a couple of weeks . I'm also excited to be going away this weekend on a scrapbooking retreat with my lss two scrapbook friends and my wonderful friend michelle friday till sunday, i am so looking forward to the break !! Now for the fun stuff the challenge this week was to use the bunny from the doodlecharm cart and i made my bunny sitting in the meadow amongst the daffodils, i used WIMG for the daffs and flowers and i used glossy accents on the flower heads and my bunnies feetpads and nose.

Two scrapbook friends march design team !

When i first opened this kit, i thought i was in for a real hard time of it, not my usual colours but i really like the results i achieved from this kit ! The papers are from a canadian company in Quebec, and this was the equinoxe line ! The design team have to do a double and a single layout plus one other project, i managed to do my double two singles and a card. The other designers have done wonderful projects and you can see them on the two scrapbook friends gallery HERE.

For my double layout i cut the letters from the cuttin up cart and inked them with tim holts inks in mustard seed, weathered wood, orange marmalade. stars are cut from george cart. all other items came in my kit !!
For my first single layout i used the kit but i also used the story book cart for the frame crown and letters. i used distress inks in broken china, mustard seed.

For my next single layout apart from the kit supplies i also used inks in vintage photo and weathered wood.

Finally i made a card from the bits i had left, i used storybook for the scrolls and george for the flowers, i also used inks in faded jeans, black soot and cats eye white. I added a touch of stickles in waterfall. white gel pen !
