Scrapping in PINK, what a treat!!


Woohoo! I got to scrap in pink :) I have two pairs of wellies for Connor, some green crocodile ones and some blue Thomas the Tank engine ones. Could I find either of them when the snow fell this week? Could I heck! I went everywhere to find some and in the end found a shop with a choice of three wellies; green crocodile (didn't even get a look in), Smarties (which I really pushed for) and Peppa Pig ones. DS was adament that he was having the Peppa Pig ones, and I thought 'He'll grow out of them soon enough'.

I used Serif PhotoPlus SE (free download!) to remove all colour except for the wellies and then picked up on the pink in the rest of the LO. The challenge on UKS was to use a sketch they supplied, use black and white, use stamping and use flowers. I achieved all of these things, and am really pleased with the LO.

I wanted to scrap this because Connor calls wellies 'willies', which makes me smile everytime, rather childishly. I spent 20 minutes trying to get a decent photo of him in them and eventually resorted to bribing him with chocolate buttons. But just look at that smile :)

This is lovely! Do explain how to remove colour and then just add one element back in. Have been trying to do this for ages.
