Hello everyone! It's Chantal with you today...

How's it going?  Did you grab yourselves a bargain at the big 2nd Birthday Sale?  If not, you may still be in luck!  You can check out what's still up for grabs at Purple Pumpkin's store.  

Today I'd like to share this layout which was selected to be in the top 20 traditional entries for the Scrapbooking Memories & Expertise Events BLACK AND WHITE PLUS ONE competition, here in Australia.  

I didn't end up winning, but I mainly did it for the challenge and my daughter Heidi absolutely 
loves this page!  :)

I have used lots of "scraps" on my page.  Amongst these scraps are quite a few off-cuts of 
Purple Pumpkin's hand-dyed doilies.  I know I've probably mentioned this before, 
but in case you missed it, I actually hardly ever use a PP doily "whole" on my pages.  
So when I mean "whole" I mean that I cut them up!  :)

So I thought that showing this layout would be a very good example of how I claim that I 
don't let any of my cut-up doilies go to waste.  Here's the proof!  LOL!  

Also included on my layout are PP cute li'l rose cabochons.  These are sooo easy to use.  
I seem to use them up sooo fast!!!

I didn't get to see all the entries to this competition, but I've seen a handful of them online and 
I love each and every one of them so much!  It would of been fantastic to see them altogether!

I hope that I may of inspired you to cut up your doilies and use up even the littlest scraps to 
add that something special.  :)

Thanks for looking and have a great week!

Chantal! :)
