A2Z Scraplets Easter Challenge

 I had  the  A2Z chipboard  out, thinking of doing another  A2z Challenge,  but up to coming on net again to check out  the  colours again, i noticed, that you had a sketch up, looked easy, will give that a go,
i have used white card stock and have inked around with Dew Drop Brilliance Mediterranean blue.
I haven't measured  the  photos , just cut where i wanted to

 I have used ,Kaiser Sandy Toes, paper and  have  used the Kaiser trimmer with the  Wave  edger . I have also inked this

The View and The are from Paradiso Kaiser Papers
The chipboard is from A2Z Scraplets.
here i have inked it and then ran it though  my ebosser with Coulture Creations party time  embossing folder,  it has circles on , so can do for water feature as well
i have then put glossy accents over the lot when dry.
 had fun, another one done for march.
 the longest part was waiting for the glossy accents to dry.
i dont usually do  Easter challenges , but what  the heck,  anything different is as good as a holiday,  to get the adrillian rushing
hope you like it , until next time
have a wonderful Easter.

A2Z  Scraplets scrapbook and card Challenge ,  March, the start of a  new challenge , i think i like to try it, but before doing so and clicking that i will do, i best  see  what requirements do i need for this one,  umm
chipboards, well, i have plenty of them,  but A2Z chipboards,   i wonder, i might be out of the game, before i begin, i have a drawer full, plus 2  bags of chipboards,
lets see, yes, i have 2  off to a good start. lets  get photos, paper and get started. ( the other chipboard is a sword, why  i would buy that is beyond me, but something might eventuate   one day , maybe i had thoughts on a card,
I hope its alright , that i have some in my stash already, im going to the craft show soon, hoping  that a2z is there so i can buy more and create more challenges,

So with my chipboard, i have painted  2 of the sails with distress crackle paint - white picket fence,  by ranger and with the rest of the ship have used distress paint  - barn door, then added crackle accents  by ranger ( it does not show up as much on the red, as it did on the  white )  i have used, Kaiser E07 light  mahogany  pen for the masts,  and for the little flags at the top , i have used Liquid pearls. Baby Blue
The paper range is from Kaiser Sail Away.
the diamonds are from Close to my Heart
I have inked the string and glued to to the page, and have used a bit of gauze to place behind the ship.

hope you like it as much as i had fun getting out stuff that i havent used in a while, now back in cupboard.

white with 1 march - Lavender herb

 my the months seem to be just flying by,

White with 1,  lavender Herb,

As soon as i saw  the colour, i knew the  photo i would use.
i have  been redoing my photos out of all those  old  photo books,
I have been thinking of doing the ones ,where i was a bridesmaid for my school friend, but  life sometimes gets in the way, but this week have planned to stay at  home and get some of my photos from the 70's done and scrapped.
                               I haven't titled it, as i thought i would put it on the start of the  pre wedding photos. when we went  to dinner for the pre wedding, as carol, did not want a big  bridal shower, and in my day, that just did not happen, it was just out to dinner on most occasions.

                         This afternoon  i started off with  Kaiser white card stock, then added Kaiser Airy Fairy  dotted paper. Then  with my  lucky 8 punch,  cut out another white Kaiser sheet and  have  dotted around the edge with Kaiser PP 02 pen
                    other items on my layout are
Martha Stewart  punches corner and  edge,
Portia - Rhinestones roll,  isn't it always the way when you want something ,you dont have any, so in my case, its swirls which i  love, so  not to be beaten, i have hand  glued them into place. one by one,  which took a while,  I have done this also  with the Couture Creations  white and lilac   pearl drops, as well.
The Butterflies, i have cut out using,  Kaszazz  punch and added the lilac  pearl drops
I have added some  small flowers from Vivalda Blossoms
also hand cut out flowers from Sospeso Transparente Flowers
       orchid  branch, series 2/14 little flowers and series  2/04 daisy and after cutting them all out,   got my candle and heated them and curled them, as well as my  glue gun and glued it all together  and added bling to it,
hope you love it as
much as i loved creating it ,  now while i have everything out, i might as well finish  another page of the wedding.
Thanks very much  for this lovely colour,  its so delicate and pretty.
