Mask card

Today I've a mask themed card to share. This is the challenge of the CRAFT challenge blog to make a mask/Use a mask.

The sponsors for this challenge are: 

For my card I've used a digi stamp for another of CRAFTs sponsors;LEJ designs, this digi is called half mask.

I've used up some of my old stash, so not sure where most things are from. I have used the sentiment and red glitter glue from SU though. Also I've added some card candi to the card.

Thanks for stopping by,

Morning all. I have something a bit different to show you today, scrapbooking. I'm a novice at this but yesterday was inspired at a local crop and managed to get 3 pages done.

This is the first double page spead. I used a retired stampin up scrapbook kit. For me these kits make scrapbooking so much easier as everything co-ordinates perfectly.

The third page was one taught by the lovely lady called Carole that runs the crop. The layout is perfect to hightlight one photo, although not the quickest and easiest page to make.

I hope you liked my pages.
