My turn

... to set the weekly DT challenge over at Scrap Pile.

I've gone with a "Lift-It" challenge, and this is my sample layout:

Nagambie Sunrise

Details of the challenge can be found over on the forum and there's a week to complete the challenge for a chance to win at a Scrap Pile voucher.

I loved using the Paper Trunk 'Batik' papers, beautiful texture and rich colours. The lovely Leah lent me her white Souffle pen for part of the title, and I am in love!! I'm on the hunt for one of my own now.

Leone set last week's DT challenge: her 1-5 challenge is always fun. This one includes: * distressing * bling * paint * scallops * angled photograph

I used some gorgeous Bo Bunny 'Ella' papers from the Scrap Pile store:

Joy of Discovery


  1. Very nice layouts Karen...love the Batik papers with that photo. And Congrats on setting your first challenge at Scrap Pile! :D

  2. Stunning sunset photo! Love both of the layouts :).

  3. I absolutely adore those rich colours in the Batik papers and it's such a gorgeous layout! Love how you've used the souffle pen in the title too! They are gorgeous, aren't they! I got mine at the expo last year, but I have also seen coloured ones at Photo Continental, so they may be able to get them in for you?? Worth a try!

    I adore that second layout too. Your daughter looks like she's really concentrating hard. Great work! Loving all your stitching. Must use my machine more!!

    Take care,
    Leah xoxo
