Love this Shop **HOT TOPIC**

It's been a whirlwind of a few days.
I can't believe it's been almost a week since I blogged.
The fact is the last day I blogged was the day the kids finished school for Easter break, so that says it all really.

Today I have a layout to share that I made using some more of the 'Scrapmatts' chipboard.
I'm guest designer for them these next couple of months.

Remember my last blog post when I said about that little dish I keep with photos in of stories to tell? Well, these photos were also in there.
This was one of our favourite stores in Orlando. Hollie found it online so we went in on Hollie's recommendation and spent an age in this little store and had so much fun. We all came out with purchases.

I used the Scrapmatts chipboard in a few ways on this page. I used the negatives of the chipboard with PanPastels, so using it like a mask.

I used these larger chipboard chevrons. I stained them white first with Tim Holtz Distress Stain and them used a green Prima Chalk Ink over the top. It shows the true colour of the ink much better if you paint/ink them white first.
I also used the little chipboard words. I love adding these to my layouts. They are like little subtitles.
The arrowed words are one of my favourite items that I received from Scrapmatts, I started by inking them yellow, but they didn't stand out as much as I would have liked, so I went to cover them in the same white Distress Stain to start all over and started dabbing and really liked the effect, so I left it just like this. I think they look pretty cool. 

If you love the chipboard as much as I do. Here is the Scrapmatts blog which I think you will love.

Thanks for stopping by.
It's another day of juggling kids and work for me today. xxx
