Funky Scrap Page

Hi all!

I am entering this layout into the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday challenge #202 was to use buttons and bows. I used two buttons- a stick flower shaped one through which I threaded twine and tied a bow on, and also a plastic pink heart button that I had to cut the back loop out of. I added another bow on the bottom right area made out of paper raffia.

Pixie Dust Studio had a girly girl theme. I think you'll agree my page does not et any more girly than mine, lol. Lots of flowers, girly colors and cuteness and the TGF image I used is super girly and adorable.

My Mum's Craft Shop challenge #42 had a fab and funky theme. I used a sentiment that says "absolutely fabulous", plus the designer paper is very funky. That's the whole inspiration behind the layout, actually. My starting point was this challenge. I chose this Sandylion paper that I was hoarding and went to town from there.

Prairie Fairy Fridays challenge #71 was an anything but a card challenge. I made a 12x12 scrapbook page. I'd like to point out that in the description of the challenge, the text says "welcome to challenge 72" so you guys might want to fix that to avoid confusion?

The Poodles Parlour had an anything goes challenge.

Do You Stack Up challenge #57 was also an anything goes. This is my second entry.

Delightful challenges wanted us to use punches and dies.  I used a Fiskars corner rounder punch, an EK success flower border punch, an embosslits cherry blossom die; a MgGill fern punch, nestabilities pennants die and also the labels 1 nestabilities, and My Favorite Things dainty dots Die-Namics. Take THAT, challenge! I owned you!

Enough goofing around. Here's my page:

Can I say wow? The colors are amazing on this pic because I used the flash, lol. Sadly, the rest of the pics did not photograph as well. These are the true colors. It's a very cool bright page!
There's space for 2 wallet sized prints on the center of the page.
