Bad Girls Bleuprint and Scrap Your Crap

So Happy Together is a layout that captured 2 goals! One, was to play along with this week's Bleuprint at Bad Girls, and the other, to play along with the challenge at Scrap Your Crap.

I loved challenge #51 at Scrap Your Crap, because it actually allowed me to do just that! The challenge was to use 20 + letters in your title, and then an additional 10 embellishments. I pulled out old decorative tape from Heidi Swapp, old embellishments, such as the beach sticker, the blue gems, and the Maya Road chipboard (which is heat embossed with red - smells like Cinnamon). How about that! A Scratch n' Sniff layout! Now there's an idea. :)

Now, I couldn't have come up with this layout without being totally INSPIRED BY Anna's Bad Girls Bleuprint - see more on the Bad Girls Kits forum. See below the images that Anna provided to get the juices flowing. She also made that sketch to go along with the images. I was inspired by the colours, white background and white space, I pulled the black, red, and green from the Tommy picture, and the fabric idea from the photo (I made sure to use fabric-like ribbons). Of course, I used the sketch as inspiration as well.









Now it's your turn. I've left you with 2 challenges that should get your mojo going. GO - SCRAP - CREATE! Oh and have fun!
