Scrapbookers Anonymous 'Gentle Man' and 'Sending Love Your Way'

Hello everyone,

I know I shouldn't be looking for more challenges because I am spending too much of my free time in my craft room, but when I stumbled across this site I couldn't resist!!

I love the idea of using up all my old stuff and with this in mind I pulled out some old Websters Pages paper and got cracking with their challenges. Why did I buy this stuff??? It's very pretty but not at all my style!!! I think I get caught up with what I see other people create and I fall in love with what they have done but can never do it myself! Anyway I did my best with it and here are the results:

A - Z Challenge:  G is for.......Gentle Man :0)

My DH at the Winter Wonderland show in Hyde Park

Tim Holtz clock face and stickers are Websters Pages

Heart die is Spellbinders 

Die is Spellbinders and the flower is an old Prima one

I don;t know where the little fabric ticket came from, but it's super sweet :0)

Letters are Pink Paislee and man is stamped with Sassafrass Lass alphabet. The die is Nellie Snellen.

The sketch was from Page Maps 

     super eh?

The next challenge is to use 3 hearts (hmmm I didn't notice the 3 when I did the layout!!!!), well it is February :0) 

My layout is of DD#1 and her chap on his birthday. for some reason they was a big gap between them so I chopped it in two to get them closer together!

Mist is Tattered Angels Hot Pink Chalkboard

Heart die is Spellbinders, stamp is Hero Arts, flowers and leaves are Prima, rolled flower is made by me!

Hearts were stenciled through negative of die cuts with Jenny Bowlin Dabbers - Malted Milk, Cough  Syrup and Chewing Gum. The little hearts were punched with a Tonic Studio punch

I may get away with the challenge as I did put 3 hearts at the top of the layout, lol!! Anyway, it feels great to have used papers that have been collecting dust for sooo long! The rest is going to DD#2 so that she can create something pretty :0)

Thanks for stopping by,
