To be in with a chance to win this challenge, you will need to do the blog hop as well. A bit of extra work, but well worth it for the fantastic prize.
Start the hop HERE, jump from blog to blog. On each blog you will find a code. Collect the "Code letters" from each blog to get the "Code word". Leave a comment on each blog with the letters you have collected. Once you have completed the hop, got the full code word, get crafty. Make any project you want and blog as usual.
Just remember not only to link to our challenge blog, but also add the code word very clearly in your blog post. Link up as usual and sit back and hope your the lucky winner.

The prize for this blog hop, is to co-design & Name your very own exclucive digi stamp. You get to chose the theme for stamp, let designer Janette know what you would like, and together you will create a magical stamp.

So here is my project for this fortnight's challenge.

I have made my very first scrapbook page!!!
Because we are all using the same image Family Photo, i decided to make up a scrapbook page featuring my family.
This is me, my hubby and my wee boy (4 months at the time) on our Wedding day 15/10/2011.

I have used K&Company Sparkly Sweet 12x12 Little Flowers Glitter Paper for the base, K&Company  Sparkly Sweet Scalloped Stripes Flat Paper for the backing for my photo.

I used the following to colour in the stamp
Pro-markers : Magenta, Cocktail Pink, Blossom, Antique Pink, Pastel Blue, Powder Blue, Blue Pearl, Pastel Green, Soft Green, Mint Green.
Copic : Y11

I have then used punched butterflies, buttons, letters and gems out of my stash to finish the page off

Can't wait to start making samples with the lovely art work that Sue and Linda come up with. And working alongside some very talented ladies.
