And the Winners for March Are!

Good Morning Everyone
Today I get to share with you all  three of the Ladies who sent us a project for our March Challenge using the colour teal.
But before I do, I want to share with you all our last team member's project using Teal.

Sonia has done a beautiful layout using Teal. 
I love Sonia's layouts, they are always so special. She manages to add lots of elements to her pages, but always balances everything perfectly. She also is a master at adding layers and layers of bits and pieces to her work without it looking too cluttered. Every element is carefully place right down to the littlest item.

Sonia has used 2 beautiful photos for this page. I love the way she has added layers under her photo to create a frame.
Here is what Sonia has to say about her layout.
Teal is one of my favourite colours to work with so I had a lot of fun with this months challenge! I love the 9 Cogs on a Board

IDS0018 9 Cogs on a Board
 as the varying sizes of the cogs make them an ideal piece to scatter across your page to add movement. These have been heat embossed in gold. The title is made from words taken from 'Love, Grow, Hello (IDW0083) and 'Imagine, Believe, Happy' (IDW0079) and these have been inked using brown ink. Finally to add some texture to the background I used the Crosses Stencil (IDMM006) with some Texture Paste

 Just look at the bits and pieces Sonia has tucked just under her photo.

Again another cluster of perfectly chosen elements created at the top of her photo.

This photo shows her layout back ground. She has used one of our masks to add some little crosses with textured paste. I love her choice of chipboard words


Again more of our mask used on her layout. Love the flicks of gold Sonia has added. Another perfectly placed cluster of prettiness. Sonia really is one of the best layout creators I have had the pleasure of knowing.
Thanks so much Sonia for sharing your amazing layout with us.

So for this months challenge we received three entries. Two ladies will receive a $50 bundle of our chipboard.
Rachel Dutko sent us this lovely layout. What a beautiful photo.

Rachel has used quite a bit of our chipboard on her layout. I love the way everything is nicely cluttered around her photo. She has used some of our stars, hearts and words to create a beautiful page.
IDS0076 21 Stars in a board.

Just look at all the bits and pieces Rachel has carefully placed next to her photo - very clever. 
I like the way Rachel has made her photo matt bigger to allow her to add a chipboard word just below her photo. A really lovely layout to record a special moment forever.
Thank you Rachel for sharing your layout with us, I will be sending you a $50 bundle of our chipboard to create with.

Margaret Aitken sent us this special layout. Margaret has done her layout for a very special friend. she has cleverly used our phrases " Family Love "  but cut off the family bit,  and just used the " Love " section.. Margaret has chosen some lovely matching flowers and elements for her layout. She has cleverly layered some pretty papers behind her photo and added her flowers in a lovely cluster around her photo. She has even added tiny bling to her layout as well. A perfectly page for a very special friend.
Thank you Margaret for sharing your layout with us. I will be sending you a $50 bundle of our create with.  

IDP0133 Family Love

Penny Powell also sent us in a layout. She has chosen a very special photo for her layout. The title "Great Great Grandmother" is a clue. Penny used two different phrases for her layout. She used the title Great Grandparents to get a second "Greats' to use  with the title "Great Grandmother" then just added them together. Penny has used one of Denise's flourishes and cut it in half.
IDD0033 Denise's George Flourish. 
Penny has also chosen some beautiful flowers for her page and cleverly clustered them to create a lovely element then cleverly  using the chipboard flourish to extend her flower cluster even more. This layout celebrates two lives linked by the strong bond of love and family
Thank you Penny for sharing your layout with us.  I will be sending you a $30 bundle of our create with.  

So tomorrow is the 1st of April and I will be back again with our colour of the month for April post - featuring the colour of the month and some of our design team members to inspire you all..
