Shimelle NSD Challenge 1 : Pensive in Pink

I am not going to get through all 24 of the challenges set by Shimelle by the end of the weekend, but I do intend to have a go at many of them over the next few weeks. I have discovered that I love working within limitations and a challenge is a great way to do that.

The first challenge was to create a layout using pink. I was quite surprised to discover just how few pink supplies I actually had. With the exception of a kit I have put aside for Miss Three's baby album I had only a handful of papers and Thickers to choose from and almost no embellies. I must be a failure on the Little Girl Mummy front!

Here is the layout I created.

The base paper is an older Studio Calico piece from the State Fair collection. I have also included some older My Little Shoebox and a Sassafrass Lass border sticker. The larger letters are AC Thickers and the smaller font is OA Minimarket. I have a little piece of a journalling card sticking out from behind the photo. This is an SC Project Life card. Probably my favourite supply is the photo itself. It is my first origrami photo that I have used on a layout. If you use Instagram run to their website and order some photos. The quality is excellent and they are beautifully packaged. Did I mention they have free worldwide shipping? And no this is not a sponsored post. I just love their work.

I am linking this layout up with Shimelle's site. 

Watch this space as I am taking part in my first ever blog hop right here later today. Have a fantastic Wednesday!
