What a great weekend!!! 
After just completing my 4 week prac in a Child Care setting for my BEd, I have hit the Den hard =P

My first project for the weekend was to meet my first deadline as a DT, and I can't believe how hard it can be to create for someone else!!! I was so hard on myself to start with I started to think so many negative thoughts.... 
Do you create for DT's? How do you over come these thoughts?

The embellishments and buttons are the focus of the layout as I design for Scrap Elegance Scrapbook  Supplies, these are handmade by Tenisha. 
So much fun was had (when I got over that hurdle) but the layout took a different turn than I first imagined, with all the green and red I had to work with.

These embellies can be purchased from 7pm on Wednesday 22 February via 

I then went onto creating for a couple of Facebook group challenges...

This is for the Crafty Crop challenge- 
I had to include at least two techniques out of 3, distressing, spritzing and/or hidden journalling to complete the LO. 
I used a spritzing of watered down red paint and distressing all over. 
I dressed this one up with some of my left over buttons and mini doilies from my Scrap Elegance kit!!
This challenge has now closed but a new one to be announced the 16th of Feb, click on the link below and ask to join asap (heaps of advice shared by people with the same passion).

And this one is for the other group I am lucky enough to be a part of
Scrap it with Attitude

Recipe to follow- buttons, circles and twine.

I haven't created by following recipes or sketches til now but I have discovered the benefits immensely.... 
the mojo just keeps flowing!!
Join the ladies here to chat and share the love of scrapbooking and cardmaking =)

Now with just a couple of weeks before Uni takes over my life, I plan to wear out the carpet in my Diva Den and get my craft on <3
