White with Cream, who'd've thought.....

The challenge over at White With One for May was white/cream/chipboard and I was all prepared for it to be a tough one for me but it didn't turn out that way at all. I must admit that I forgot the chippy bit and used a Kaiser wooden bird, along with some gorgeous 7Dots Studio patterned paper, Tim Holtz tissue tape, Basic Grey ribbon doiley, German Scraps, and pearls from Rae's gorgeous shop Scrap Matrix. Must admit I was quite happy with the result and very surprised at how the cream stood out against the white.

Thanks so much for dropping by, and remember you still have a few days to play over at WW1

I have had lots of commitments this month and not much time to play, still trying to unpack from my amazing trip to Darwin where I saw my first ever sunset over the ocean and did classes with the fantabulous Finnabair, an experience that will live in my scrappy heart for many years to come!

So...... Playing this month with the 123 Challenge
This is what I came up with... it's a bit slap-dash and put together with whatever was on my table and within reach but there you go....

Thanks so much for dropping by :-)
