Exciting Handmade Halo News

Hi everyone :-)

I hope all those with school age kidlets have had a good return to school or introduction to school... I know a lot of my scrappy friends have little ones starting this year. My youngest has taken to prep like the proverbial duck to water & loves it.

I have some exciting news & some shares for you tonight.

Firstly, I was asked by the lovely Corinne to join the DT at Handmade Halo. Whoohoo!!! how exciting!... my first foray into the scrapping DT world & I thank Corinne for inviting me :-)

Secondly, there is going to be a sale tomorrow at Handmade Halo's new store and there is some VERY yummy new products being created especially. You can check some of the new things out tonight on the facebook page :-)

I received a fabulous package of Handmade Halo goodies last week & got a chance to play on the weekend...

On this first page I used PLS (Pretty Little Studio) "Summer Breeze" papers & lots of gorgeous embellishments from Handmade Halo.

Look at that gorgeous handmade flower (Corinne makes gorgeous flowers!); I just loved the fabric butterfly; not to mention the yummy resin flowers and that pretty bird charm.

And what about this resin!!!!

My second page is using the PLS "Clowning Around" collection. This is such a bright, fun collection... exactly what I like to work with :-) I used a sketch set by the lovely Sheree over at Scrapz.biz for this page.

The accessories that match this line are so cute! and look at that sweet button!

I love these resin frames. I cut a small photo to fit inside.

So there we go, my very first Handmade Halo DT post... I hope I did OK? and I hope you like the gorgeous products that I got to play with. Head over to the Shop tomorrow (Wednesday 1st Feb) for the big sale YAY!!!

Thanks for popping in girls :-)  Have a great night!

Playing along...

with some challenges :-)

I haven't had as much time for creating these school holidays as I would have liked but that's OK, the kidlets have had some great chill out time & I've enjoyed the lack of routine.

I tried the Base Jump challenge over at Scrapz.biz for the first time. The DT girls start you off with the base of a page & then you do whatever you will with it. Here's the base that Aga set...

And this is what I came up with...

I also did the What's Cooking challenge set by Sheree. I used some Christmas photos so that I could also enter it in the Holiday Layout challenge at C'est Magnifique.

I've got lots more challenges on my list that I would LOVE to get done... I'll see how I go :-)

Thanks again for everyone's wonderful comments :-)
