Scrapbook Inspirations May Edition

I was lucky enough to be asked to participate in an article which was published this month, Ready, Steady, Scrap.
I was supplied with a kit from CRAFT SUPERSTORE (Click here )which was beautiful. Lovely 7 Gypsies papers, stickers, paints and stuff!

I created a LO using only the stuff in the kit and no tools. It was quite hard and made me really go back to basics and see what I could do just with paper and glue!

I was lucky enough to do this alongside Lisa, fellow DT member, friend and cropping buddy. Her lovely LO featured pictures of her daughter who is also a scrapping enthusiast and got very excited when she saw herself in the mag!

I learnt a valuable lesson about sending submissions to mags though, make sure you glue everything down with super glue!! One of the buttons and the flower have moved -check out little picture compared to big!!

I kind of regret not having made more of an effort with the hair and make up now too!!!

Thanks to all the gals at SI for the opportunity - I loved it loads!! x

Wow Karen I don't subscribe to SI anymore & not got a copy yet this month, but I will be off down town tomorrow to pick one up knowing that you & Lisa's work is in there. How good is that, the 2 of you alongside each other in the challenge :)

Well done Karen....just realised when I looked at my copy again..thought to myself .." i know her from somewhere..." then the penny dropped!!
i do think the mag is getting now...went a bit off it a few months ago but the last 2 or 3 issues seem a lot more readable..
Take care
