Piggy Bank

Hi folks! I’ve been saving some money for the big scrapbook fair in two weeks. Yesterday I FINALLY altered the box I’ve used as a Piggy Bank.

Spargris

The beautiful papers used are all from the Vintage Pink Line from Riddersholm Design. I’ve been hoarding this beige paper for quite some time now, looooove it!

Spargris detalj 2

I visited my LSS, Ljuva Änglar, yesterday and was totally inspired by all the beauty created by their DT. I saw a paper and vellum layered Magnolia dragonfly that was soooo gorgeous. I didn’t have that die, but used the same technique with a butterfly. Not as good, but good enough! LOL!

While there I also saw the sketch and sample for their September Sketch and Autumn challenge and decided to play along. Here is the beautiful sketch:

You can find all the info about the challenge HERE. I followed the sketch pretty close, only changed it from a square to a circle.

Spargris detaljYou might wonder about the Autumn part… Weeeeeeell…. I thought that the fact that  it’s done for the Autumn Fair would  be enough… Do you think????

I blogged my first DT layout for Scrap-Perra today. You can find it HERE if you want to take a peek. I’ll post it here tomorrow.

Have a  great day!

Tack för kommentaren i min blogg. Tyvärr kan jag inte ta åt mig äran för ordet Kuckelimuckmedicin, det är Astrid Lindgrens Karlsson på taket som vill ha det när han är sjuk... och tydligen inte bara han ;-)

Din sparask är hur fin som helst!

Oh, Tesa, with such an adorable piggy bank, I think one can 'hoard' the money pretty well....LOL
This is AWESOME! You've done a fab job. Those pp are very beautiful and your take of the sketch is so clever and creative.
Pure vintage, girlfriend!
