Buttons & Bows with The Happy Scrappers!

Hi guys, hope you're all well!
We have a new challenge starting over at The Happy Scrappers today and the 
theme is "Buttons & Bows"! We'd love for you to join us, we saw a drop in numbers this
last challenge so hopefully now all the kids are back at school we might have more 
of you joining in.......we'd love to see you! Please feel free to take our badge and help spread the word!
We'd love as many entries as possible this time!

 Now as you know, we're a just for fun challenge
with some fab inspiration on show over on the main blog. You can enter any size layout, digital or
otherwise just as long as it fits the theme!
I was a bit stuck with this one and when I mentioned it to Miss Rebecca inspiration struck
and so we had an impromptu photoshoot featuring hairbands with bows on and oh, did we laugh! 
I didn't realise she had so many.......we could have taken another half a dozen pics all with different 
bows, she's such a poser!!
I created an 8 x 8 digital layout using Serif and a combination of elements from different kits.
If you're unsure about digital scrapbooking it's worth giving it a try. For me, I still prefer real paper, photos & embellies but there's definitely a place for digital in my craftroom and one of these
days I might even have a go at mixing the two!
Rightio, that's me for today. Miss Rebecca and me are gonna go watch a Christmas film
and eat chocolate!!!!
Hugs Jo x

    I left you an email...since then i have gone to the post office twice but each time there was still room to add a couple more things...We have 2 weights for international shipping...200 grams and 500 grams. Since i was over 200, I hauled it all back home to tuck some more stuff in...ribbon and diecuts and stuff...

    I have been haunting your blog over and over these past couple days...trying to read back several months, looking to see what die cut styles you usually use etc.

    Hope I got it right. Finally will be in the mail tomorrow!
