UKS weekly challenge is to scrap something scrummy, use some pink & black, a poem, hidden journalling and fabric.

Here's my LO and it's the first time I've not used a photo on a LO.

As you've most probably guessed I've used the topic of my scrummy stash. LO is mainly pink & black, poem written by me, journalling behind the poem, ribbons (velvet, satin & organza), ric-rac & fibres. I've also added my new stamp, chipboard, button, stamp, Stickles, patterned paper/card, photo turn, brads, blooms, metal embellishments (heart with 'handmade with love' on and a tiny pair of scissors). I added some colour to the stamped image by watercolouring with my brush markers and added a light covering of stardust stickles.

Poem reads:

Ribbons & blooms, paper & card - I used to think crafting would be hard - To make something pretty out of stash - It took me a year, but I gave it a bash

With my inks & stamps & glitter glue - Chipboard & buttons & fibres too - Scissors are poised, DST is at hand - I'm, certainly hooked & life is grand

Thanks for looking. Love and hugs
