Purple Pumpkin Giveaway

Happy Sunday to you all!

Secondly, a couple of layouts to show you... I've been playing around with using up some of my old stash and trying out some new ways to use my alphas, mainly as backgrounds etc. I got a heap done AND some DT work too!

The background for this one is rub ons; not sure if you can tell that well, perhaps I should have done a close up!! I've had these for AGES and never used a single one. So I worked on using all the letters I don't normally use like X and Y etc. I have decided that I am not a huge fan of the rub on :(


For this one, I've lined up the letter B's in a row so they don't look like B's any more but more like a chipboard strip/pattern :) The ribbon is Making Memories which I've had forever! I've also used some white larger letters as a stencil for the background. I made sure to "un-sticky" them first so that I could easily pull them off after I had painted over them.



More playing with the background... and a boy layout.. I know it's still has flowers but it's as boyish as I get!!


Last but not least.... A big welcome to all the new followers.. WELCOME :) I hope you find some inspiration here and I will be sure to pop by each of your blogs for a visit :) and a big THANK YOU to all the lovelies who leave me comments, they truly mean a lot!! You are all such sweeties!!!

Have a great week everyone,
Gwen

Hi Gwen,
Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for the lovely comment on the 2Crafty Blog. You have some gorgeous layouts here, and I absolutely LOVE that Erma Bombeck quote... I used it on my "Bucket List" layout because it really does say it all ! Thanks again. x

Wow! These are fantastic Gwen! I like what you did with the one that you lined up the "b's". Neat idea!
