Tattered Inspirations - Victoria's Glory Box Kit

Here is my first original creation for Tattered Inspirations using the 'Victoria's Glory Box' kit. The design is totally mine and the bag can be made using one sheet of Bazzill. It features Carol's beautiful handmade flowers, hatpins and a cabochon, along with the vintage printables.
Hope you like it!!

ALSO: Tattered Inspirations are sponsoring the "Let's Get Shabby" website this month. You must head on over for a look-see!!

I just popped over to the ScrapBoutique forum to find out that my LO (above) has been chosen as their current LO of the week. What a total surprise! I am still relatively new to the SB community and love that they obviously like my work. I'm chuffed!! That's my second 'good scrap news' for this week!

My New DESIGN TEAM Position!

It is with total excitement that I share with you all, that I have just been offered an exciting DESIGN TEAM POSITION for Tattered Inspirations with the lovely Carol Mead.
Carol is an extremely talented mixed media artist, watercolourist, scrapbooker and potter and I will be creating scrapbooking layouts, cards and other inspirational pieces using her divine creations and kits from her Etsy Shop. Please take some time to visit her shop. You won't be disappointed - you will be inspired to create - as I was when I first visited!!

Thank you for this wonderful and exciting new opportunity Carol. I am very much looking forward to working with you to showcase and promote your beautiful creations.

Here is a layout I created using one of the Tattered Inspirations vintage kits.

ScrapBoutique October Stash Stomper

There are some fabulous monthly challenges over at ScrapBoutique and I especially loved this one, where you had to pull out some old chipboard and stickers and use them with the sketch given! I unearthed some Basic Grey 'Sugared' PPs, chipboard elements and stickers and put this LO together. It is now one of my absolute favourites! Thanks Em!

Thanks for stopping by!
