Scrap Around The World - December

The December SATW challenge is up. 
Read all about it below. 

We all know how busy the month of December is SO we are changing our rules FOR THIS MONTH ONLY - we are allowing TAGS and ATC's!!  And there is NO LIMIT on the size of your layouts, canvases or art journal spreads!!  You can even do a single art journal page!!  We understand that this month is about spending time with your families, creating memories to be scrapped in the future, so we are trying to help you save time & still get the chance to be creative, just in a shorter time frame if necessary!!
To be eligible for judging please include in your blog post:-

1)  Our mood board image.

 2)  Our name "Scrap Around The World" & a LINK BACK to this current challenge.

Please link to YOUR BLOG POST NOT your entire blog & please turn off word-verification 
if you would like some of our Design Team members to comment on your entry.

Here's my take on Zanka's gorgeous mood board. 
I used the Messy Head range of papers from 7Dots. (who as you will see below are offering the most amazing prize to our December Winner)
 I love these papers they're so easy to put together and great for backgrounds!
*The word 'clan' in my title was an after thought but I forgot to remove the apostrophe and the S before I photographed it.  Trust me though both the apostrophe and the S are no longer there!

As you can see I was inspired by the gilt edged frames in the mood board.
so I've added plenty of metallic paint to chipboard frames, my title and even the stencilled background.

Below is one of those happy scrappy accidents that occur from time to time.
I used a photo overlay from the Maggie Holmes Collection Flea Market. 
See the rolled corner?  Well if you get your heat gun too close to plastic it melts doesn't it? ;D
 Lucky for me I quite like the curled corner and I could totally tell you all it was deliberate
except you already know otherwise now!!
