White on white...

Just wanted to share a layout I have done for the Lets Get Scrappy Challenge blog, the current challenge (#36) is a special birthday edition where you can choose any of the previous challenges listed. I was inspired by the White on White #3 challenge, so I thought I'd give neutrals a go. I am usually a very colour-oriented scrapper and will decide on papers and embellishments almost purely based on colour, so this was something quite new for me.

I used an old shot of my 6 month old self, with the 'pull' tag revealing some hidden journalling on a shipping tag - I've written about my very first memory - the starburst pattern on my white vinyl pram.

I've used some yellow and white roses from D-Lish Scraps, some vintage lace which I've sewn on with yellow thread, some punched cardstock circles and a little hand embroidered starburst salvaged from a linen doily. The paper is from the Atomic Soup range by Jilibean Soup.

It was so hard not to add more colour, but I enjoyed this challenge and will probably attempt a single colour layout again soon!

What are you making this weekend?
