New challenges!!!!!

Gotta love the start of a new month when all the challenges come out! I am really enjoying tackling all the different challenges out there.I have completed a few already but hope to do some more.
First up is "Scrap the Girls". This month the challenge is to use multiple photos and to have pink polka dots! Perfect for a "circle" addict like me!!!! I have scrapped these adorable photos of my youngest neice 'Lila" cute!!!
I have used misting to create pink polka dots and my papers have pink spots too!

And just a close up shot!!! I have loved being a little bit arty and grungey with my layouts lately! 

 Next is my entry for "white with one". The challenge is to use white (duh!) and a bright color and flowers. Well nothing is as bright and happy as yellow is it!?

 I realised I hadn't participated in "the Color Room" challenges for ages so I gave this one ago.

This is my layout. The photos are of another of my gorgeous nieces 'Charlotte'. gotta love her look!!!!
Once again,lots of mist and paint and grunge!!!
 This layout was created using a 'Becky Fleck' sketch which is a part of a cool competition I would love to win.

You could win a front row seat to 24 online classes at Miss Arts Papercrafting School! No additional purchase is required and you can use supplies you have on hand. This 6-month Extra Credit Subscription is valued at $90!

To enter, create a layout based on this sketch, in any size, any orientation, any way you want to interpret it and using any products you would like. Post a comment on this thread with a link to your entry. The contest starts today and ends at midnight, Sunday, December 4, 2011 (MST). This contest is open to scrappers everywhere!

This is the sketch...

A quick plug...

I don't often plug businesses or products but I found these and I thought I would share them with you. I love tapes etc so when i discovered these little goodies i fell in love. They are little packets of masking stickers. You peel off the strips and circles...:).......and use them like tape or patterned paper. Even better you can  easily create banners and little flags with them!!!!! SO cute...a must have.
 And then theres these gorgeous rolls of fabric tape!!!!!!!! Had to have these too!!!!!!
You can find them here at Myrtle and Grace. Such beautiful clothes and so many other to die for bits and pieces. Check it out!!!!

Also I have been thinking that I would love to start teaching some classes from home. Would love to hear if you and your friends would be interested.......
