Only Scraps Allowed...Glitter & Bling

Monday 6 August 2012

Morning All!

Today is time for another Only Scraps Allowed Challenge and the theme this week is 'Glitter & Bling' which basically means I want to see shiny/sparkly things on your layouts this week.

I had a special photo to scrap this week and I already had a patterned background paper picked out so finding scraps that went with it was actually quite hard. Here's what I came up with:

and here is the layout I made:

The photo is of me and my little girl experiencing our first cuddle. She was about 16 hours old. I didn't get any cuddles when she was first born as she was 7 weeks early so was taken straight away down to the Special Care Baby Unit. She was then in an incubator and hooked up to all sorts of machines and wasn't strong enough to have any time out until 16 hours later. Even then she came with lots of wires and a breathing mask but that first cuddle was the best moment of my life (perhaps other than when she came home).

Here's a close up of the title and embellishments. I used pink sparkly Thickers and dotted some of the dots from them all around the page. These went really well with the pink glitter already on the background paper.

I just love this birdcage - it was already on the background paper (My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two) so I can't take any credit for it but it is so gorgeous I thought I'd show it off!

If you'd like to play along then please create a layout using only paper scraps (you are allowed one full sheet for the background) and make sure you use something sparkly on your layout to tie in with this week's theme. You can add any embellishments and alphabets you like, then link your layouts below. Thanks for joining in xx
