Happy Scrappy New year and a scraplift challenge

 I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year's celebration.  We went to our church to play games and pray in the new year.  Here is my daughter with a fun party crown she made.  Today is a new day a new year and a whole new look over at Scrap Tiffany.  As one of the newest members of the design team I have to say I am super excited about the new look and today's new challenge.  We were asked to get to know our fellow designers by visiting their blogs and scraplifting from one of them.  Now I love, love, love to scraplift so this was going to be easy for me.  I fell in love with so many of the layouts and finally chose this one by Sophie who is French. 

Now because I am on the card team I needed to make some adjustments.  What I loved so much about this layout was the colors, the shapes and the feel of it.  So I went for it. 

I made this little hello card with the same color scheme and even copied the shape of the bottom by welding a marquee shape from the Storybook cricut cartridge to a rectangle on my Gypsy.  The paper was all from my stash, the plaid is unknown, the pink flower is Cherry Blossom from Recollections(Michael's store brand) and was purchased on clearance for 19 cents a sheet, the Green dot is Doodlebug, the loops is DCWV The Sweet Mat Stack.  Butterflies were cut on my Gypsy with the Indie Art Cart and a tiny scrap of Sweet and Sour specialty paper from Stampin' Up.  The turquoise paper is from my scrap pile.  With the circle I made some scores in it and folded along the lines, then sanded to show off the white core and then flattened it back out, and on the word {hi} I covered it with Turquoise stickles.  The diagonal stripe paper is actually embossed in the cuttlebug. 

I hope you enjoyed my first project for Scrap Tiffany.  I hope you will head over and check out all of the other designers.  If you would like to play along with us, just scraplift away, then send Tiffany an email by clicking on the email buton on her page.  She may even feature your project on the blog!
