Scrapper’s Delights – Freestyle Blog hop

Hello and welcome to the Scrapper’s Delight Freestyle bloghop. 

This fortnight I am using the fabulous Pixie Corner digi-set 1.  The fairy, tree stump and toadstools have been coloured with Promarkers andcut out, then mounted on a Daisy Trail backing paper.  I loved the way the spots on the paper looked like a trail of fairy dust behind her and I enhanced it with pale green glitter.  The sentiment is from my stash and is from Hunkydory and the gem swirls were from a Hobby House kit (see yestrday’s post!).


Enjoy the rest of the bloghop – next  is Kim – remember to leave a comment at each stop to have a chance of winning a prize.

These are the challenges that I’ll be entering today: – anything goes – digistamps – wings – favourite things (toadstools) – birthday – wings – mad for markers – 3 of something

Thanks for letting me share!
