Die Challenge... !!

The latest card challenge has been set over at the SCRAPOLOGY BLOG and features the work of Sue Wilson.  We would like you to create a card with die cuts as the focal point or use them in an unusual way. Sue has donated an amazing prize for the winner and all the details and super Design team inspiration can be found on the BLOG.
You have till 15th sept to submit a card......

As I only have a few basic sets of dies my card was created very simply.  I used a heart to make the flower and circles to make the rings.

I hope you join in and send us a card or two !  It's great to see how everyone interprets the challenge in their own way :)

What is the fascination with cardboard boxes, especially with children or in this case big hairy dogs?

I thought this photo would suit the layout for the newest challenge over at Scrapology.........

"E for Exposed" and using a layout by Ingvild  Bolme as a starting point.

All the patterned paper, including the eyeboggling black and white paper comes from the Happy Days collection kit from Echo park.

Rather than tearing the aperture for the photo, as in the original layout (see below) I just randomly cut into the paper and folded the pieces back.

Pop over to the Scrapolgy blog to see the details of the challenge, all the amazing design Team layouts and details of how to enter your project. As always we have a super prize for the winning layout.

This is the original layout  by Ingvild Bolme and our sketch....
