Our Vintage Affair Aug 1st Layout

Hi everyone!! Well here it is another month and of course that brings brand new challenges over at Our Vintage Affair blog. Now don't laugh okay. . . . this is my very first scrapbooking page that I have ever loaded up to my blog! I know right *grins*. I am a cardmaker and a mini album creator and an off the page lover. Polly and Loriete over at Our Vintage Affair gave me some time off as I dealt with family issues concerning my daughter and little grandaughter Sophie. It has been a very long hard road but hopefully there is light at the end of a very lonnngg tunnel. So here I am creating a scrapbooking page.
We have a new sponsor for this challenge and that is. . . .

And here is a little about the company itself:

"Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker is a scrapbooking company specializing in premium papers and embellishments that will make you smile. From whimsical designs to cute, cuddly creatures, Nikki Sivils designs straight from her heart hoping to inspire creativity and expressions of love and life."

And here is a prize for challenge winner: the collection from "My Friend Birdie"!!!

Below is the sketch we were to follow for this month. . . .

Here is one of my gorgeous grandbabies. . .Sophie!! I had this black and white pic that my daughter gave me so I thought why not create my page using this pic. The challenge is to also include a bird on the page and I chose a SU DSP pack that has birds etc all through it but I had to cover the gorgeous bird up with the pic so I used a SU punch to put a bird there.

I hope you can join us over at Our Vintage Affair for this months challenge and that you are a lucky winner if chosen for the prize pack on offer this month and there will be another challenge but possibly a card or an altered item for the 10th August so stay tuned for that. Please join us as I would love to drop into your blog and leave a comment on your creation.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with artistic beauty.
The Gypsy
