Silly Playful Fabulous + The Scrapbooking Soiree!

Sorry for the delay in posting this month's Scrapbooking Soiree, things have been a little hectic! But I'm getting back on track now. 

Before I share the details of September's winner, and open up the October Soiree, I've got a new layout to show you. Hopefully it will give you some inspiration and make you even more keen to join in the party!

Silly, Playful, Fabulous:

Supplies: Pink Paislee Portfolio 'Stupendous' Paper, Ephemera, Photograms, and Clear Stamps. Mr Huey 'Clay' Mist. My Mind's Eye All is Bright Buttons, and Winter Wonderland Enamel Dots. A few clear gems, yellow ink, a black journaling pen, 3D foam dots.

I've been having fun playing with the Pink Paislee Portfolio prize that I won, and this is one of the layouts I've made so far. I love how easy it was to create a really fun page, to match the pictures of my daughter acting silly in a photo shoot!

I tied embroidery thread around a couple of arrows to enhance the dressing up theme and add another texture.

I liked that I could make my title out of the Portfolio ephemera. I struggle with titles sometimes but these three words were perfect to describe my daughter in the pictures!

What do you think? I was inspired a little to use the yellow-grey-blue combo by Saskia's layout here from the last Soiree, it's such a lovely mix of colours. Have you ever tried it? 

Now for The Scrapbooking Soiree:

There were some lovely layouts last month, check them out here if you missed them! 

Sadly though, the number of entries has been dropping each month, instead of growing as I'd hoped. I'll only keep it going for another month or two if this continues. So, if you've ever thought about joining in but forgotten - please take part! Remember you can link up any scrapbooking project from the 8th of the current month to the 7th of the following month. So if you've already posted something on or since the 8th of October, you can link it up straight away! It can be linked to other challenges. And you'll be in with a chance to win a voucher to your favourite scrap store!

And, if you think it's a great idea, but you aren't able to join in yourself right now, then you can still tell others about it by pinning, tweeting, or sharing on facebook (links available at the end of this post).

And the winner of September's Soiree was:

That's Bonnie! Congratulations Bonnie, you've won a £5 Gift Voucher (or closest equivalent in your local currency) to your favourite Scrap Store! Send me an email at jennifergrace (at) hotmail (dot) co (dot) uk and let me know where you'd like the voucher for!

Below is the linky for this month's Soiree. Please join in, and you'll be in with a chance to win a £5 voucher (or closest equivalent in your local currency) to your favourite scrap store! Full details of the Scrapbooking Soiree are here. And please stop by and check out at least one other link after adding your own - it's a great way to meet new bloggers and have some fun!

I love your colours, your arrows and your speech bubbles on this cute page! On the blog post I have linked I am asking the question: what is your "magic number" of sheets of patterned paper to have in your stash? I hope some of your readers will contribute their ideas!
