A little LilyBee

I've been making a real effort lately to use up some old products or at least mix old with new. I still had a pile of LilyBee papers and I really like them and wanted to get working on them.
I saw a sketch over on there blog and although I didn't follow it totally it gave me a jumping off point.

Here is the sketch:

and here is my page:

So that's one down! It's a start right.
Have a fab day

Challenge Me Happy No 40

I love typography so I was excited about Challenge No.40. Annelie provided us with a wonderful inspirational piece...

This is what I came up with ...

I've been really wanting to use more of this Everyday Eclectic collection (designed by Alison Kreft for Echo Park) for a while now and this all came together so easily. I used the Silhouette to cut the 'everyday' out of the background kraft cardstock.
Then I just used the scraps from the collection to fill in behind each word. Most of the bits and bobs are from the sticker sheet from the same collection. Oh it feels so good to use stuff up, it's so satisfying as I love these papers! I love it when they actually make it onto a page.

I'm designing over on the Scrappin Patch blog for February if you hadn't stopped by already.... I'm covering school and valentines.

Have a great day
