National Scrapbooking Day

So Saturday May 2nd was National (or in our case here in Australia International!) Scrapbooking Day. Basically a good excuse to drop everything else and spend some time scrapping up a storm, with plenty of give aways and challenges happening all over the world.

Well, we decided to join in over at Charms Creations by giving people a sketch to play with, but the bonus is you have all May to get it done and there is a bonus prize too if you do the sketch and also the mid-monthly challenge.

Check it all out here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1593652894224365/

So here is the sketch:

And this is what I came up with:

A soft and pretty page for my DD1, even if she is being goofy in the photo! I just loved using the doily butterfly heart from Charms Creations, this is one of the new lines with the gorgeous butterfly buttons on top. I also played with a newish collection from Pink Paisely that I just got my hands on, this is full of pretty colours and butterflies too!

I have been playing some more with the pearl texture paste too, and a new stencil from ScrapFX that I picked up from D-lish Scraps. There are lots of other little bits from D-lish Scraps too, can you spot them?!

Love the wood veneer from Heidi Swapp's September Skies collection. In fact I am loving most of HS things these days! I am eagerly awaiting some Wanderlust papers that I have ordered!

 In my little cluster here I have used a sweet chipboard frame from one of Maggie Holmes' collections.

So there you go, my NSD efforts. Don't forget to go and check out Charms Creations FB group and join in the fun!
