I was so honored when my sweet friend Cynthia Llorens emailed me earlier in the year and asked me to be a Guest Designer for a new site she had just started called Scrap for Help. Scrap for Help is all about bringing people together from around the world through art and crafting. This month they are celebrating Children's Day, which is celebrated on October 12th in Brazil. It's a day to honor children. So the challenge for this month is to create a project about . . . you guessed it . . . children! The other component of the monthly challenges is to use recycled materials on your project. This month we're using scrapbook packaging.
I created a layout using the packaging from three different packs of Prima flowers. I used one of them as the photo mat, and I cut scalloped strips from the other ones. Of course the layout is filled with lots of Prima goodies.
I crocheted along the edge of one of the border strips:
Those look like real pearls along the edge of the scallop edge, don't they? Well, they're not! I created them with my new favorite art medium: Viva Decor Pearl Pens:
Be sure and check out Scrap for Help to see all the gorgeous projects created by their talented Design Team. Everyone is welcome to play along! Thanks for having me as your guest, Cynthia!!!
