Hello Scrappy friends, it’s Helen with you today.
Welcome to my first post as part of the 2016 Design Team.

It’s exciting to be part of this talented group
 and I hope you find something to inspire you here.

My first project is, “Love the way you smile”
A page about my twin Grandsons.
The title is from
I used, CB5127 Diamond Mesh 03  as a mat.  
I trimmed out the middle and used some of the spare
diamonds randomly round the photo.

The two piece heart set
Was heat embossed with Stampendous Ivory enamel.

The Today arrow is from

On the second layout,
“Happy Times”
I used one of my favourite pieces to frame my three gorgeous DIL's
They were having fun at a Girl's night out party.
Do you like the black wig?  All the better for dancing to "Grease" music!
There may have been leg warmers on show too.
CB6105 Assorted Words 23
I like the way the chipboard responds to gesso, texture paste, mists, or crackle,
in fact any mixed media you want to play with.  
Scrapmatts chipboard is sturdy enough to take it all.

and some very versatile words,

For the final project, 
“Happy Birthday”
I made a Birthday tag for someone special.
Using heavy weight card stock, 
I covered it with crumpled tissue before adding mists.
The cluster is formed around a vine,
Using Twinkling H20’s for shimmer, I added tiny beads,
some skeleton leaves from my stash, a charm and some seam binding.

CB1049 Words 01 Happy Birthday
Painted with Glimmer Glaze
CB1005 Butterflies 05
Painted with Twinkling H2O's
