UKS week 2 challenge and a card.

The challenge this week on UKS was to use bright colours, a movie for your title, flowers and buttons.  I just loved doing this layout, I think it is one of the quickest layouts I have ever done!  Of course that is probably because I have kept it quite simple but this paper from the Bo Bunny Flower Child range is just so gorgeous it didn't need much added to it!


That is my little sister and the lovely vibrant colours of the Flower Child papers just went perfectly with the beautiful colours in this photo!  I used my new EK success punch, I am just adoring punches at the moment, I have only just recently discovered them and now can't get enough of them!

I did highlight some of the flowers with some stickles because I couldn't resist and added a glittery button!  I actually used a tag off some clothes I bought a couple of years ago (I keep everything!) as a template for the butterfly :)



Lastly this is a card I made for a friend who was having a heavy week, and I used Nikki Sivils Willow Bee line which I adore :)


One of the girls who's blog I follow has opened a new website to sell some of the yummy things that she makes, it is called Purple Pumpkin, you should definitely go and have a look she makes some gorgeous things including the cutest buttons!  She also has a fab giveaway at the moment to celebrate the opening. :)


And for anyone that hasn't heard yet, Simply Handmade is back with the lovely Debbie Nicholas as the new editor and it will be in WHSmith for £4.99!  You can read about it on Debbie's blog here.  She is also the editor of a new crochet magazine that will be coming out, which I am very excited to see! :)

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! :)
