Hello Hello Girls
I do hope you are having a fab weekend, I bet your excited Amanda with the prospect of a reno'ed creative space :) :) :)
I dont know if you remember but a couple of months ago I mentioned that Sues Sketch had inspired a layout I did for ASS so I thought ied share it with you as it has just been posted on their blog.

Ive also been ispired by your valentine inspo, not literally STS with the used of the type posters but I got some <3 action happening on a couple of layouts, using some glorious hand screen printed material from a fabulous little place just near me On Magill Road, Stepney I think it is!

Cheers and Ta Muchly for the Inspo and I hope ur haven a great weekend :)

Wow Lou!! I really love them all!! And great Valentines interpretation!!

Love the kraft doilies and strips and the stitching in the first one - looks great against the white background!

Love the twirly string in the second one and the delicious fabric and the red outlined 'SO'.

And the 3rd - yummy fabric and painted background! The teeny hearts are gorgeous too!!

Now I reckon I need a visit to the fabric shop ... what is it called???

Marika - box challenge

So Marika took this box above and scrapped!

She said:

Hi Amanda,
Just sending a layout for the box challenge didn't have Ali edwards influence but powder blue and about me. Feels nice to get a moment in the scrap room.
Thanks Marika

This is great Marika!What a beautiful photo of you and Simon and WOW  you both look so happy and young. Having a weekend away is bliss isn't it?!

Love all your cute embellishments - those hearts are delish - and great use of memorabilia in using the ticket.

Oh and your layout doesn't have to be a Valentine's related layout ... well that would be way too nauseating!!

Meredith's challenge - Sue

When i was creating this page i was thinking of incorporating the 'blackboard' from Meredith's challenge. So here i have used chalkboard co-ordinations cardstock, run it thru the Sizzix and rubbed it back to show the underneath greyish, whiteish colour. Goes with the school theme perfectly, i reckon!
Thanks for taking a peek,
Sue x
