Bethan Louise

One of the challenges on the Hey Little Magpie Challenge weekend was set by Jackie.  She wanted us to scrap using a recipe.  We could use any of the following but nothing else:

Cardstock as your background
1 stencil design on the background
6x6 paper pad
2 No. 1 x 12 inch stripes of patterned paper
Wood veneer
Enamel dots
Stamp word and cut out
Title : Thickers and a small alphabet
mini word stickers
Hidden journalling
Washi tape
Flair Badge

There was quite a lot of options there but I still cheated ever so slightly.  So I cut the 1x12" strips in half so that I could put them top and bottom and I didn't have a 6x6" paper pad so I used a piece of 6x6" paper cut from a 12x12" piece.

This is a photo taken at my sister's baptism in 1979.  Interestingly when I showed my mum the layout she said that she'd never seen this photo before, so I guess it was from my dad's collection.  I love yellow and this paper is just gorgeous.  My background is cardstock but I used a stencil and some white embossing paste mixed with some yellow paint to add some texture to the layout before I added the photo, stickers and flowers.  I ended up buying some enamel dots from Hey Little Magpie because everyone was using them and they look fab!  

What was the last item of stash that you bought?
