I am soooooo HAPPY to say that I won the Scrapfactor competition over on Ukscrappers....never thought I would ever get this far and I am still wearing a very large smile :) Thank you to everyone for all you encouraging comments and support on my blog - it has meant a lot to me and inspired me too :) So here are my final 3 LOs - there is lots of detail over in the ukscrappers gallery and so I don't make this post toooo long I will spare you too many. I made this mostly with crate paper papers, and behind the photo is another photo and some journalling. It is all based around the fact that my DS loves to bring rocks home from the beach, and his first rock was too big to carry all the way back over the dunes, so we managed to persuade him with a photo of the large rock (as seen below) and a collection of crystal and fossilised rocks. The stamps are a lovely crafty individual set - I made the fishing net out of string (still finding more uses for string in my LOs), the alphabet is Tim Holtz vintage market.
Below is a peak at a flower that I have made - it is a mixture of lots of bits and pieces I have picked up in my flower making and the LO and a tutorial that shows you how to make the flowers is over on the scraprat blog.
