Scrap-it-Lah 6th & Final Challenge for April

Here's my entry for Scrap-it-Lah's 6th and last blog hop challenge for April. Go here to read about the challenge - you still have a couple of days to submit - entries close on the 30th of April.

Jessy's challenge was to draw inspiration from a photo of a cupcake. For some reason as soon as I saw the wrapping around the cupcake I immediately thought of Hambly overlays :-) So that's what I used at the top and bottom of my LO - I painted the back of them bright yellow and I think it really makes a statement!! heheee. The flower on the top of the cupcake was pretty cool so I used yellow Prima flowers and backed with them with a brown one to tone in with the Hambly & used yellow brads for the centres instead of pearls. The butterfly's I glimmer misted with Tattered Angels daffodil.
Here's a close up of flower & butterfly.
I haven't done as much scrapping as I would have liked this month ... it's been a good thing that Scrap-it-Lah have had 6 challenges to be honest!! Because I think that's all I have managed to achieve. The chances of me getting all our holiday photos scrapped before the baby arrives is looking a very impossible task! (and one I am not going to fret about either!) The trouble is when I wake up I am filled with energy and enthusiasm and by the time I get the kids to school ... or 10am if they are at home ... I am exhausted! LOL Anyway they are back to school today, no new cases of the virus have been reported, so hopefully it's safe! And I can do some playing this morning. :-)
Thanks for visiting.

This is great! love the yellow - it's a colour that doesn't get much use in scrapbooking I think but it's so cheerful.
