I just had to use Dancing Maggie from Sugar Nellie for Aunty Barbara who has lived up in Scotland for most of her life and, as usual, I found a check paper to paper piece her kilt. I followed the sketch from the Sugar Bowl and the option of scallops. Creative Card Crew and Cuttlebug Challenges both have an Easel Card as their challenges. The circle has been embossed in the Perfect Paisley folder from Cuttlebug on Core'dinations and lightly sanded which fits with Allsorts challenge of embossing. I 'heart' Promarkers has stripes which I have used as one of my papers. Simon says has 'check it out' - the kilt and tag are done in the same checked paper. I got out my old Sizzix Original die to make the scalloped tag which fits with Little Red Wagon's challenge. Practical Scrappers challenged us to get out our border punches which I have done with a Fiscars punch for my stand. Colour Create have 'baby pink, peach and black' as their colour scheme- found it hard to get in the black so that is my stamping! Dutch Dare have a flower photo as their inspiration and I tried colouring some white flowers with my promarkers- they came out a bit strongly coloured so I will start lighter next time but not bad for a first try! And finally, Crafts and me have birthdays as their challenge. Wow- this is going to take some linking so I had better get off and do that!!!
