SM Product Challenge

These projects were in a recent issue of Scrapbooking Memories. They were for a Buss and Bloom product challenge and I was sent the stamps and chipboard arrows in all different shapes and sizes. So first is the layout - which you can probably tell is about books! I did the layout one night after Tassy went to bed and she had told me the title I was to give the layout. Apparently I got it wrong tho. And now I still can't remember what it's supposed to be, lol. I love reading childrens books with Tassy every night and these are the ones we've read so far. Yes, the pile is very heavy on Enid Blyton but now that we've got them out of the way we're on to a greater variety. Right now we're almost at the end of Pippi Longstocking and I can't actually say I'm a fan. She's just too weird! Pippi needs a role model I think. Before that we read Milly Molly Mandy which my dad used to read to my sisters and I. Don't you love the map at the beginning of the MMM books... I did a layout inspired by that recently. I think it should be a few posts below. And I also had to do an accent so in keeping with the theme of my layout I decided to do a bookmark. I cut the heads off two arrows and placed them together to form a heart. Awwww...

Ooh I saw these in the mag Yvette and I loved them! I didn't realise you had made the heart on the bookmark from arrows - too clever - and it looks great!

Oh I love the book layout! I love that you cut around the books cos it looks like they really are a stack placed in front of the cardstock! Thats cool :)
I love arrows on my pages. I dunno if you're a fan, but I want to use them on every layout! They are way cool. Lol.

I can't wait to see your paint layout...hehe! I didn't realise how fun it was until I done it! lol (sad I know!)

I haven't forgotten about your paper. Promise. I am sending a few things off tomorrow and I will send that too.
