M - Metal - the key and the fairy in silver
O - Orange - mist and on the papers
T - Tape - there is yellow washi tape with stars on it under the heart die cuts
H - Hearts - die cut using the Kaisercraft heart boarder die set
E - Enamel Accents - in the centers of the little flowers
R - Rubber Stamps - in blue a little flower stamp over the background

So with out much more here is the first page for this challenge............



Now for the close ups............































   

Now for their second challenge this one is a Tic Tac Toe where you chose a line and use all the items in the line so here are the options...........

 May Tic Tac Toe Stash Challenge

I picked the middle line which reads.........

The Colour Yellow - mist, paper, title, ballon
Clouds - behind the balloon and one of the photos
Paper Clip - this one is a bit hard to see but there is a gold coloured paperclip just about the title

So here is my page............

Card Candy with Alicia Redshaw

Hello Every......... Sorry it has been so long between posts but I just have to tell you about the class I did with Alicia Redshaw over at Scrapbook Fantasies. We have just had the Autumn Retreat in store and it was wonderful. But that's not what this post is about............ This post is about the class that Alicia taught on Saturday, she call it 'Embellie Bits' and we made them with our 'Crumbs' of scrapbooking past. With all those old punches that we all have hid away in draws and all the left overs from past pages we put together a group of embellishments to add to pages and cards. So without much more I have a group shot of some of mine, (some of mine made it onto pages that you will see over the next few posts)...........



Here are some close ups of them.........

     

Thanks for stopping by.............
