Challenge Me Baby!!

Howdy Ladies : )

Wow, I must admit my blog has been rather neglected lately! I guess I am just trying to find that ever elusive balance between being a mummy, having family time, doing chores, making lot's of new bit's for Rainbows & Whimsy (YES I will be opening soon with lots of new goodies!!) & having time for hobbies! 

I am so happy to be back in the scrappy groove, definitely am up for doing some challenges!! 

When I saw this months Sketch Challenge at Punky Scraps, I knew I just HAD to give it a go!!! I just cannot resist a moustache. The FABULOUS Nat designed it.....You ROCK Nat : )

I have once again dug into my HUGE my2angels stash. Tracy is so good to me, even though she wasn't getting the Echo Park - Times and Seasons collection in store, she was kind enough to order a collection pack from her supplier for me! So a big THANKS to you Miss T!

I popped a moustache sticker on a cute Felt Boy.....I think he looks rather dapper. I'm loving the Imaginarium Chipboard Tracy has got in recently. I used the Swirly Frame, which I painted with gesso then inked with Distress Ink - Broken China, then embossed with Distress Powder - Broken China. Lastly I swiped over it with some Distress Stain - Peeled Paint. I painted both the Camera Charm & the Antique Silver Circle Pendant with Glimmer Glaze - oil Slick. The Manila Tag was painted with gesso then swiped over with Distress Stain - Peeled Paint.

All of my layouts seem to have a Scalloped Felt Frame (I cut them up to use as borders) & Spotted Acrylic Buttons (Green & Black). Do you have products that you re-visit time and time again?
I'm also digging the Plaid Fabric Brads and of course another must have.....Twine!!!

Well there you have it folks!!

Stay tuned for an announcement next week........ooooooo what could it be.....

Love and Peace xox
