I had time for a Scrap Africa Challenge!!

Yeah for me!!  It's been AGES since I had time to participate in any of the great online challenge sites, but over the weekend I had same play time and I love the new sketch that are up over at Scrap Africa! 

Here is the sketch they provided followed by my layout . . .

Sketch no. 20

I used Graphics 45 Secret Garden papers, lots of flowers, chipboard from Celebr8, Ranger paint and Martha Stewart punches to create my page.  I have the quote on a stamp, and it's fits so well with this photo and where I am right now in my life!  Choosing to look at the bright side, face turned to the sun!

Bo Bunny, Prima and Petaloo flowers.  I used heat embossing and stickels to add some dimension to the flowers.  One of my new favourite tools are the Martha Stewart leave punch!!

The Scrap Africa challenge is live until 14 August!

Happy Wednesday!
