Black is Back !!!!

Morning all

What a wonderful morning it is here today. Sun is shining and skies are blue :) Great day for washing and doing all the chores, but not for me today. Today I am scrapping !!!! There are so many challenges - gotta love the first day of a new month. And this month, I plan on getting some of them done !!

Black with 2 is back !!!! and the first challenge was a REAL challenge for me.

Black, with LAVENDER (eekkk) and glitter (double eekkkk).

Here is what I managed to find in my stash

I was going through my photo stash and found this one of myself and my bestie from 10 years ago on her wedding day. My, how time flies !!!

I'm rather pleased with how it turned out. I've used no paper on this, just paint, doileys and cardstock to create the background. I have also used one of Krissy's fabulous MVB large black roses, some prima, kaiser and my glitter is the kindy glitz.

So make sure you check out all of the awesome DT work, and come play along.

I've also been making another cake. This was our Celebration Cake that we completed in class last night. The navy blue didn't turn out how I had planned, but other than that, I'm pleased with it. I'm really enjoying making cakes :)

OK, enough from me today. Off to go play with my papers and paints.

Thanks for stopping by
