October Scrap the Girls

If you're looking for a great challenge this month try this one
the challenge this month is to

Create a layout with the word ‘love’ in the title and to use ‘distressing’ on 
your layout.

Always more than happy to break out the edge distresser and inks
this challenge was perfect for me.
I've inked the butterfly above and added some
distress crackle paint and iridescent gold glimmermist.

I've had this prima flower vine in the stash for a while and it was perfect for this layout.
I also added the packaging from a prima florish and some 
corrugated cardboard for some more distressing.
The base of my layout is a Co'ordinations embossed cardstock 
which i've sanded and added some walnut distress ink.

For the word 'Love' i've used a quote as my title
"Cousins are like the sisters you never had that will 
love you forever"
A perfect quote for my only Daughter. 
Having 3 sisters myself I realise now as an adult how
blessed I was and am to have these beautiful women close to me. So although Maggie has no 
sisters I am glad that she has these 3 lovely young women 
as cousins that love and adore her.

So if this challenge tempts you and I hope it does, head over here 
and check out the awesome layouts by the other Design team and this month we have a fabulous Guest Designer, Marelize Frisby. A most awesome scrappy lady
you can check out her fabulous scrapping here.
