Scrap the girls and more!

Posted by swewi on December 1, 2008

It’s the first of December, and the first challenge is up @ Scrap the girls! It’s a sketch challenge this time. We also want you to use something pink, and flowers on you LO. Shouldn’t be too hard, right?


This is my take on the sketch, make sure you pop over to the blog and check the other team members LO’s. Some amazing inspiration, AND PRIZES over there!!




I can also show you my entries for the final over at Pyssel Passion. There where two challenges. The first one was to do a LO “chabby chic style”, and the theme was love. You had to use two photos on your LO. My LO is about the love for my daughter…




Since I’ve used a Magistical Memories fancy frame” on the LO, I also submitted it as my last entry to their DT search round 2. I inked it with brilliance ink, then used my clear crackle paint, and some glimmer mist on top of that, and last a few pearls. Detail shots:






The second challenge was more tricky… The LO had to be in “freestyle”, and you also had to choose a particular color scheme; for example analogue, triadic, triangular or my choice – square. I ended up with primary colours; blue, red, yellow and green. You also had to use something older than 20 year on your LO – object on photo didn’t count! Yikes… As most of you know, I haven’t been in this country for more than 5 years, and don’t have a lot of older stuff where I am now. So I had to slaughter an old kids book of mine… 🙂 The things we do for our hobby, aye… I simply cut out “Pippi Longstocking” and her horse and put on my LO. This LO says “The worlds prettiest Pippi” and is about when my beautiful goddaughter Lea dresses up as Pippi. I choose the size 8.5×11″ as this will go into my Sweden album!

The winner in this competition will be announced on Wednesday (or probably Thursday NZ time). I’m not EXPECTING to win, but obviously HOPING!!! Cross your fingers for me please!!! 😉


OK, one last thing. I’ve decided to resign from the Scrap with V DT. A hard decision, but I think it’s the right one. My last kits for them will be up in the shop today or tomorrow.


See ya!

    Amazing layouts Annelie, love them all, but of course the circle layout has a special place in my heart lol, if I ask nicely with cherries on top, would you let me scraplift that one at some point for my BOM? Won’t enter it in SB of course, but would love to do it all the same. All the best with the competion.

    OMG, Annelie I absolutely adore the Pippi Longstocking layout. It is to die for!

    Growing up in the early ’70s Pippi was my hero. Her programme was our favourite on TV and I had the book. I so wanted to be like her, haha!
