Washi Fun!

I had a lot of fun making this layout!

I'm still scrapping some pictures from a walk the girls went on with their daddy last May. If I remember correctly it was National Scrapbooking Day and I had kicked them out of the house so I could have some uninterrupted fun!

This layout was made for the's weekly challenge (make a flower); for Scrapbookin' Adventures weekly facebook challenge (Spring theme) and for Moxie Fab World's Washi Challenge! I haven't joined in with Moxie Fab World's challenges for a while so I am super excited to have made something for one of my favorite blogs.

As you can see, I made a pleated flower with a couple of leaves with some washi and I also made a trio of feathers! I love how easy they are and how fun they look!

A quick post today to share a LO that I started months ago and finally finished! I had the photo matted and stuck to the die cut sheet but I never made it past that point. I just wasn't feeling it and was beginning to think that maybe I never would with this LO, so I decided to just push through and get it done. I started by sticking down the beautiful ribbon and tulle trim, thinking I would add a title in between them. But then my eyes landed on a package of die cut butterflies and this happened...

So tell me what you think??? Too much or just right??? I know what you think, Miwa!!!

Isn't this a great way to use up some of those MM die cut butterflies that I know A LOT OF YOU have in your stash?!

A Unity Challenge!

I love Unity Stamp Co!!! They started a new sketch/colour challenge on their blog last month. I didn't get a chance to join in then (darn missing mojo....) but the new challenge was posted today and I am DONE! You can check it out here.

I am joining in on the LO sketch this time (I may give the beautiful colour challenge a go later). The sketch looks like this:

So cute! I love all those butterflies (and I have that stamp!!)!

Here is my LO:

Unity Stamps used:
-Wood Grain Script
-With Her Own Wings
- Insta Cute

I don't do much stamping on my layouts, but I am VERY happy with how this one turned out!!! I stamped the wood grain script first with distress ink and then I stamped the butterflies using gesso!

I did another LO yesterday with pictures from the same hike, using the same papers.

This LO I did for the weekly challenge at (Spring Break theme) and for the Facebook Challenge at Scrapbookin' Adventures (use the negative image from a die cut).

I have two more sets of pictures from this hike that I plan to scrap. I think I will stick with the same paper collection, so they all go together.

Products used:
Unity Stamps (listed above)
Echo Park Paper 'Everyday Eclectic' collection pack
Carta Bella Paper kraft cardstock
Thickers - forest
Distress Ink - old paper & walnut stain
Pink Paislee - wood arrow
