Scrapping Outback Cyber Crop - Julie's challenge

Scrapping Outback held a cyber crop last weekend, with the theme being Scraptivators
I've completed 2 of the 4 challenges, they are due midnight september 4. So pop over and check them out.
Anyway this layout is for Julie's background challenge. The criteria for the challenge was to create your own background. I had this piece of white cardstock sitting for ages, that i fingerpainted with a heap of different paint colours - that i had left over from painting some chipboard. I then doodled around the edge in pen and then did an inner border in white paint. FOr this layout I didnt use any patterned paper, just some plain paper and cardstock. I also used thickers, dymo labeller, crocehted doilies, eye candy magic fimo, dusty attic chipboard, string, kaiser flower, prima flourish, bella flower, metal charms, making memories brads, mesh ribbon, magnolia flower and bella clear flourishes

Southern Girls challenge 'decade theme'

Challenge 27 at Southern Girls Challenge blog
is a decade theme. Choose a decade and create a card, layout or OTP project with that theme in mind.
I used the super mom image from Kenny K to create a 50s theme card for my mother in law. Now Im not a 50s child, in fact I just snuck in to be a 70s child. So i have no idea what the 50s were like, but i imagine them to be not really colourful and  a little plain. LOL well thats my interpretation anyway. So for this card I used brown and grey, with a hint of red, and not a lot of embellishments. I used papermania paper and bow, ribbon and flourish with a bling pearls.

Sam's challenge for August is to create a layout, card or OTP project using masking. You can check out all of Sam's goodies for sale at
This layout was originally to be used for a class for my LSS, but the weekend event had to be cancelled. For the masking I have used glimmermist and a doily, at the top left of the photo. Not very original with the doily, but its all i have. I used Sassafras Lass papers, ribbon, buttons, and a doily. I made the rose using punched out flowers from the Sassafrass papers. Im really happy with this layout, i love the colours
