UKS Challenge

This weeks challenge for on UKScrappers was to do a shaped layout, not 12x12, use bright colours and something big!  This was my interpretation of the challenge..


I had a lot of fun playing around with this one and used paint, inked most of the edges, distressed, made my own little photo mat and did loads of fake stitches!  I do think that the coloured stitching takes almost as much time as my usual hand stitching which I generally do in front of the television so I think although I love it I will probably still mostly do hand or machine stitching. :)




I found the most brilliant idea on Heather Ruwe's Scrapbook Bakery Blog the other day.  She did 30 days of inspiration and I just love what she has done with those butterflies on day 16 to decorate her scrap room!  I think I will definitely be trying that some time because how relaxing and inspiring would it be to have gorgeous butterflies flying up your wall :)
