The memory nest January Color Challenge

my  first challenge of 2014 at now that the madness of Christmas and new year is over I can get back to my blog and hopefully will be adding more creations over the next few weeks.

 I choose the blue and green tones from the challenge as they work well with the tan background. I combined Dear Lizzy with Papermania and used a stencil mask and modelling paste to create the background.
 the flowers I made using the new Xcut A5 flower die set and after cutting out the pieces I used a balling tool to rough up the petals.

this one is going in my holiday scrapbook which I am trying to get finished but there never seems to be enough time in the day.

Forever My friend

after a mad Christmas period full of shopping, eating and design team work, I am finally back with a new layout I created  with my new Docrafts products.

I used the new xcut button dies and combined them with the chronology cogs to create this simple layout about Leo. the paper I used is from the forever friends forever love collection.
