November Scrapology Challenge......

On the 1st of each month the new Scraplift challenge at Scrapology is revealed.
This month the team has chosen this gorgeous layout by Michelle Logan, and the added challenge is to use chipboard on the layout.

Below is my first page as part of the design team, and I stuck quite closely to the original although as you will see it looks very different to the 12 x12 layouts since I had a much smaller space to use for my circle. 
I'm not a painty /inky scrapper so I chose an alternative way to add the circle motif to the layout.
I raided my scraps drawer and pulled out lots of patterned paper pieces in coordinating colours along with some dew drops, buttons, gems ,ribbon and postage stamps. My chipboard pieces are from a set by Fancy Pants,  and I simply coloured them with a blue pro-marker and added crackle glaze to the surface for a watery feel....

There are some lovely layouts on the blog for further inspiration for this months challenge, including 2 digital projects, so there really is something for everyone .
 Pop over to Scrapology  for details of how to enter - there's a great prize, and you've got a whole month to submit your layout :)

Don't forget to have a look at the Scrapology October Card challenge too which is  open until 15th November, and is on the theme of Autumn. 
If you have the latest copy of the Scrapbook Magazine, I have an Autumn inspired layout and ideas for making the most of your autumn projects - as a source of further inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by

  1. Your page is adorable (I'm a sucker for a pet page!!) I love the ribbon and button semi-circle, what a unique design feature. I keep meaning to try stamps on my pages as I have a stash of them taken off of the post. Keep forgetting! Happy Friday. xx
