10 days of creating.......

This week I signed up to the Create 10 online workshop over at Crafty Templates. 10 days of projects delivered straight to my inbox. I'm hoping to use up lots of my ever increasing scrap pile and use photos that I've been meaning to scrap for a while - I've made a good start........ You may recognise some of the papers used on my layout from the card in my previous post. I chose scraps that were in ice-cream colours and luckily most were big enough to die cut to make the background and matching embellishments. For this I used my circle scallop and label nestabilities die and a couple of circle punches.
The second class arrived today and the result? - yet more scraps disappearing from my bursting scrap drawer and a pretty layered effect layout.

I think this class is going to be fun and most of all achievable. The fact that I've managed to do the first two projects without spending any money is also a bonus. I'm looking forward to seeing what my inbox brings tomorrow...........
