June the 1st...

Hi there my Scrapbooking Friends.
Firstly ,have a good month!! ca you believe  we are in the middle of 2011...
get yourselves a cup of coffee this is a long post.
Yesterday afternoon I was wondering what to work on ,on USTREAM on my show Zeffy Scraps with Freinds  so I did some serious blog hopping and I felt challenged by numerous I decided to challenge myself and combine the various challenges into one layout!!
Here is the L.O.
Butterfly Kisses was inspired by the beautiful Gabrielle papers from Bo Bunny and their challenge on their blog to do a L.O. inspired by fabric.....I loved this photo and my inspiration came from the girls sashes!!
You might wonder what the next photo is all about?? Read on....
Well it all started with the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog that wanted us to show our favourite stamp...the result will not be entered !!!
I have always admired the Color Combos Galore challenge,and I loved the colors this month ,here they are..
So I used the colors in my L.O. and while browsing on this site, I went onto Helena Virpi's blog, where I discovered Studio L3 and Linda is responsible for the experiments that happened last night, her Grungy Monday celebrates the great TIM HOLTZ we had to use a technique TIM used on his Christmas tag in 2007!!
The conclusion is I stamped with my favourite stamp...embossed,dabbed,rubbed,,,,,made a boo boo,,,,used gel medium and gesso ....embossed, dabbed, rubbed!!!  I came to the conclusion that my stamp had a very intricate pattern (That is why I love it!) for this technique and maybe my background should have been black! As Tim suggested....but I used the all the samples anyway ,to make background paper,flowers and leaves for my L.O.

And lastly, I want to take this opportunity to celebrate and thank, all of the Scrappers and Artists out there is" Scrappy -Cyber -World" that inspire me daily.....thank-you, I salute you!
God Bless you all.
