I’m on the SCRAP 365 Sketch DT!! February Sketch + Layout!

Whoop! Here’s some fun news today… I am now on the SCRAP 365 Sketch Design Team! How exciting is that?!

I'm On The SCRAP 365 Sketch Team

For those of you who don’t know, SCRAP 365 is a beautiful magazine published here in the UK, featuring all kinds of tips and tutorials and lovely layouts. Each month they have a sketch challenge on the blog, which you can enter to try and win a prize. I’ll be designing a layout each month based on the sketch to give you some inspiration, but make sure you check out the inspiration from the other design team members too!

Here’s the February Sketch:

SCRAP 365 Sketch Challenge for February 2014

And here’s my layout…

The Ceilidh:

The Ceilidh by Jennifer Grace

These photos were taken at a Ceilidh last February, which one of my friends (Ali) helped to organise. Me and another friend (Rosie) had assisted making the paper flowers for the table decorations! We danced the night away, in a big hall which had a dinosaur hanging from the ceiling – an art project, not a real skeleton!

I wanted my page to reflect the fun we had, so I used bright colours and some sparkly gems which are both very ME! I like how the lines of black gems ‘glam’ the page up a bit so it looks more like an evening party:

I had to layer up some paper flowers near the picture of the paper flowers… it wouldn’t be right otherwise would it?!

I added a bit of extra sparkle to this ‘Good Stuff’ tag (from Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste) by painting a thin line of Mod Podge along the cirle and sprinkling on some tinsel glitter:

It twinkles like the evening did!

Go and see the announcement of my DT place, and inspiration from another lovely lady, right HERE! You can enter the challenge by creating a scrapbooking related project of your own, uploading it online somewhere, and adding it to the linky tool in the sidebar of the SCRAP 365 blog. Good luck!

P.S. If you’re new to my blog I have a giveaway running at the moment, check it out HERE.
