All things Bright and Beautiful.....

I've been so colourful with my creations lately....I love being surrounded by all this colour. When I finish a LO I blue tack it up in my studio for a few days and they get replaced as I make new ones and then get put into the appropriate album.
This latest one is of my little sis and I. We've grown so close these last couple of years. We got separated when she was 12 and I was 17 due to parents split. And for the first time I think not only do I have a sister, but I have a best friend.

This LO is a scraplift from one of Elsie Flannigans. I love the mix of papers and ribbons behind the photo.
I used a mix of Sassafras, love elsie ribbons, scenic route and some stash bits too.

My next LO that I finished yesterday is the first challenge I've taken part in on Uk Scrappers.
It's the weekly challenge for this week. A recipe challenge. Bit of a toughie, here's the recipe:

Something Royal - my title and crown
Something yellow - the swirls in the background
Use Circles - My scalloped edge has a cicular effect and I cut a blue circle to stick my journal card onto.
Use some shine - bling on the crown
and something new - My journal tag (part of my latest October Afternoon kit that I hadn't delved into unto now)

Apart from the journal tag, everything else is from an older Scrapagogo kit.

Right, need to crack on with some work til 3pm and have huge amounts to do. xx
