I also had a go at another community challenge with Sweet Shoppe Designs (SSD) - I'm getting quite addicted to it to be honest! The challenge was to 'lift' a layout by a lady called Amy Stoffel - her work is so beautiful, it was quite difficult to select one to 'lift'. Eventually, thought I created the the digital layout below:
...and I am delighted with it!
Dottie paper: Pink Petticoat (Sweet Cupcake kit); black 'velvet' card: Doodlebug Designs; seed beads: JoMil
All paper & most embellishments: Traci Reed (Vanilla Pear-adise kit @ SSD); stitching: Christie Lyle (Unscary Tricksters kit @SSD); font: Little Days
