A Little Bit Crafty Challenge ~ Less is More....


Hiya...Well where did that week go! half term hols and hubby's week off nearly finished already, back to the school run Monday :( but yay we do have the weekend to go yet!...I'm looking forward to the Halloween strictly come dancing tonight, anyone else watching it? 

As it's the first of the month we have a fab new challenge for you over at...


This month's theme is.... 
Less is More

This was a tough challenge for me as I seem to find less is more very hard to do and just can't seem to come up with anything I like and just want to add more all the time...lol
After spending about 3 days thinking about what to create, I came up with this...I simply stamped a old unused (oops) Personal Impressions stamp Swirls and Flourishes 1 in Memento ink sweet plum and die cut and embossed a butterfly with a old Cuttlbug die and just added a couple of pearls. The sentiment is one from tiny everyday sentiments from Pink Petticoat found HERE


Best pics I could get, bit on the dark side :(  These are much softer in colour in real life

Items used
Personal Impressions Swirls and Flourishes 1 PICS014
Cuttlebug Butterfly Die and Embossing
Memory Box Primo Labels
Memento Ink Sweet Plum
Pearls from stash
