I love, love, love "My Little Shoebox" products and when I saw the design Team call I remembered my last go at it and the disappointment that I felt when I missed out, so I decided to not try this year. But then the products kept calling my name.....you have to be in it to win it they say....so here I am again.
For the call this year there was only one layout, one card and one project required....UMMM yeah me only do one layout? I have done a few lately with MLS products and I can't decide which is my favourite or best shows what I can do - so I figured I would share them all here. I'll have to narrow it down to just one for the call, which is going to be difficult.
The 2 Of You Make My Heart Sing
This layout was a fun one to create - it was the first time that I have used the MLS 3D flowers and let me tell you it took me all of five minutes to roll my first flower and fall in love with it. The flowers are such fun to make and look great on cards, projects and layout. This photo of Bronte and Paige really warms my heart.
You Light Up Our Lives
This is second layout that I have picked as one of my favourites. I did a bit of fussy cutting with the patterned paper and lanterns and love the effect with the 3D foam under it. Now how could I not use these photos with the Aiko range of papers?
You Bring Sunshine to Our World
You have all seen this one in a previous post - I made it and drew a sketch from it for the cybercrop at Mystical Scrapbooks - but I love how it has turned out - I have mixed and matched from lots of different MLS collections but they all go so nicely together that it works.
Nuts About You
Now for my card, even though I have made a few cards I think that this one is my favourite - I handcut the nuts from some of the MLS papers and glued them together. I think they are really cute.
Here is my final submission - My Project; I have made a notice/chalk board. With having just recently moved into a house that is about 50% smaller than our home in Perth I have needed to cut back on space and declutter a little bit. Well in doing so I have become super organised and all my bits and bobs are all together now. I've take a few photos of the notice/chalk board to show the detail and also to show how I am using it.
So wish me luck - I am so happy with my projects and how they have turned out that even if I don't make the cut I have won already.
