The Story of the Purple Bubbles

With the fun colours in the photo I was scrapping I knew I had to go bold and bright with my layout this month for the new Scrap Friends Sketch Challenge.

And this is the fabulous sketch I based my page on. Angela keeps on amazing us with her great sketches, you can see why our challenges are rapidly gaining in popularity. They certainly get me running to my scrap table every time she sends a new one through!

When my brother and his girlfriend come to visit they often have a little surprise to give to the Girls. Not having kids themselves, these gifts sometimes involve a bit of noise and mess (we're still in the midst of making slime from their last visit) but honestly... the Girls love it of course.. and that's all that matters.

On this occasion they brought a bottle of bubbles. They were purple bubbles! So of course Moodles jumped up and down in excitement, and Munchy couldn't wait to give them a go :-) They pretty much used the entire bottle in one crazy exciting adventure!

I wanted my page to really capture that excitement and fun, so I started with my background paper from Glitz Designs and layered it up with the bright colours from Amy Tangerine, Teresa Collins, ICC and Studio Calico. The orange arrows are actually one of the Greatest View chevron bags cut into strips (something I'll have to try again) with the Heidi Swapp neon tape peeking out underneath.

So if you want to give this challenge a go this month, all the details are over here on the Scrap Friends blog. Not only do you have a chance of winning a Guest DT position, but a store voucher is up for grabs too :-)

And I'm going to leave you today with a sneak peek of one of the projects I've been busy creating for a certain Australian kit-club I'm Guesting for this month. You can check out all my projects here if you can't wait!
