Wow, three posts in one day!

My final post for today. But I've saved the best for last. This is my favourite LO of my weekend and I themed it around the idea of a Rainbow (Paige hinted this might be the subject of an upcoming challenge LO). I had seen a similar idea with buttons in a scrapbooking catalogue. So I attempted my own version- a Christmas Rainbow. And I am over the moon with how it turned out. This now joins this LO as my two all time favourite pages. And this page also confirms for me that all the time and money I have invested into improving my scrapbooking has been well worth it. Equipped with the simplest of papers, but using the best tools and embellishments you truly can create something effective and capturing the moment beautifully. I guess having the right tools around me inspires me and gives me confidence.

For this LO I used my Brights and Regals Stampin' Up! buttons (the best quality crafting buttons I have come across- not that I am biased or anything!) along with a base of Old Olive, Real Red and Certainly Celery C/S (12x12 textured). All the added ribbon and embellishments were taken from a big stash box some lovely ladies had brought along to the retreat. They bring it along for us all to go through and use if we want. I was so grateful as I managed to create some stunning details using their stash ;0)
This final final LO was also created under the theme of rainbows (this is the first time I've created two completely different LOs in response to a challenge prompt). This one is themed around Joseph and His Technicolour Dreamcoat and the photos are from the WCC day out to Southampton last month.
Thanks for stopping by and reading. I realise three posts in one day is a little excessive. I just wanted to get everything blogged and shared following such a successful weekend of crafting.

Happy Crafting to all ;0)
