My First Challenge...

Happy dance time as I celebrate submitting my first layout for a sketch challenge. Check out the fun challenges on Life.Paper.Scrapbook. The sketch challenge link is here.

I love that this website is Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi, oi, oi. To celebrate this I used an Aussie brand predominantly on my layout.  On the basic Kraft cardstock I first stamped Kaisercraft Secret Admirer Doilie stamps. I then added Kaisercraft stickers from the Velvet Ensemble collection.  I raided Studio Calico kits to add in the chipboard stickers, charcoal grey letter stickers and leaf wood veneer. I enjoyed edging the layout on my sewing machine.

I loved the effect of stamping directly on the chipboard letters. 

The layout is about my 14 year old who has grown into a beautiful, young lady.  My sweet girl loves music especially playing her violin so the musical notes added a personal touch.

Happy scrapping... Jan

UPDATE April 2013: I won the random draw prize for the layout. I am happy Jan.
