{Southern Girls DT} Card - happy birthday wishes


There's a new challenge up over at Southern Girls: DOTS AND SPOTS.

I'm not a huge fan of spotty paper, so when I saw what the challenge was I had to give it some thought.  I decided to stretch the concept further and use dotted outlines around my sentiment and image (which is totally cute by the way, and from All Dressed Up - one of our sponsors this month) and then I added some extra spots to this little darling's dress (the bodice is already spotty).  I continued the round theme with a button and round flowers.

Thanks for popping in to visit me today, and I hope you will play along with the challenge!

Spiegelmom Scraps + Southern Girls Blog Hop!

Happy NSD all!  We are totally excited that you’ve joined us this weekend for this extra special blog hop.  SpiegelMom Scraps and the Southern Girls Challenge Blog owners and Design Teams have united and are aspiring to inspire YOU!  This hop has such wide variety of paper crafting styles and media being used that it’s sure to knock your socks off.   Our blog hop is hosted by the lovely Jody Spiegelhoff who owns SpiegelMom Scraps! and Louise of the Southern Girls Challenge Blog.   

Our hop today is all about the scrappin'!  If you jump over to the event page on Facebook, there are challenges going over this weekend - one of which is a layout sketch:
I based my layout on this sketch, using only two photos and rectangular embellies as the other two squares. Love those layers, and all the inking gives this layout featuring my gorgeous Nanna just the right vintage feel!  The shiny gold elements of the layout didn't really come out in this photo, but in real life they add an elegant touch to this very special project.


I hope you will play along with our awesome National Scrapbooking Day weekend of fun, creating and prizes including prizes from our sub sponsor Auzz Trinkets & Crafts.
