Cosmo Cricket My Boyfriend Collection Inspiration

In my kit from Scrappin' Patch this time there was papers and stickers from the Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend Collection and some journalling spots. I had so much fun doing my Poppet Page with the Karen Foster scrapbook line that I decided to do another. It is a great way to use photos with people in with busy backgrounds - Just cut the background out and you have a poppet.

Here is my layout

Lets get Shabby challenge

Well I am joining the Shabby chic challenge over at Lets Get Shabby with hours to spare - I really love shabby chic and this challenge was to include something vintage. I have used an old ribbon from a collection a lady had that she had collected many many years ago and the music paper comes from a music score which was dated in the 1940's. I have also used bolder colours.

It is Scrappin' Patch's birthday this month - so it's party time . They got challenges, RAKS, prizes, fun, and something you all love - a bargain, and more new product arriving. The first challenge is up and there will be other things happening all month along with the normal challenges.

Here is my take for the challenge which is an all about scrapping challenge.


The papers I have used are Karen foster paper which can be found at Scrappin' Patch here.

Also on at Scrappin' Patch is the new Shabby chic Challenge by Liz and it is to use two colours and use a black and white photo.

Here is my layout
