The first challenge is up!!
Go check it out here
Here's my DT sample
I've tried to capture the colour, the gold gilt of furnishings, the feathers from the hats, a floral feel and a pink colour wash of the walls of the times. Ive gone with a tutu photo because it represents the lavish rich classical folds of the fabric
I've used some of that gorgeous LATTICE LACE I've got up for a prize RAK over there at the moment!
Whatsmore, Purple Onion Designs have offered a $50(US) Credit for your choice of stamps!!
I've ordered from Purple Onion a couple of times, had them sent out from USA and just adore them!!!
Soooo looking forward to seeing you take part!!
We were also lucky enough to be mentioned in 'SCRAPSCENE' (scroll down a bit and you might see us!!) Subscribe and an email is sent every day to let you know whats going on in the scrapping world!! I've learnt some AMAZING things !! Its about the who's who of scrapping!

Wow this is gorgeous Mandy. Absolutley love it.

Congrats on your new spot at What's old is new to!
I went over to Mel's house the other week and just seeing where she creates is inspiring enough.
Us Tassie girls should get together for a scrap one day.
