In the Pink - SOUS Borders Diecut Challenge

Hi there!

This week's diecut challenge from Stuck On U Sketches was to use borders. I have had this set of freebies from Creating Keepsakes Magazine forever! I'm not sure if they are still available on their website, but if you wanted to scraplift this page, any borders will do.

I wanted to scrapbook these photos of my friend and I at a scrapbook retreat we attended this spring. And you know I love that ombre effect, so this was the perfect challenge for that.

Papers: Echo Park, Bo Bunny, Crate Paper, Lilybee Design, Bella Boulevard, unknown scraps; Stickers & Diecuts: Making Memories, Crate Paper, American Crafts, Echo Park, Bella Boulevard, My Mind's Eye; Brads: My Minds Eye; Rhinestones: Bo Bunny, Glitz Design; Studio Calico wood veneer; Stamps: Pink Paislee, American Crafts, My Minds Eye, Scraptivity; Twine: American Crafts, Silver thread; Mists: Tattered Angels, Mr. Huey

Doing a page like this is a great way to use up some old supplies. I spent some time going through anything pink in my stash. And I'm pretty happy to use up some older supplies like those Making Memories photo corners and glittered flowers.

Be sure to stop by the Stuck On U Sketches Blog to see what the wonderful ladies have designed this week. And why not play along, with us?

Thanks for looking!
