We're up to week 23 at Just Add Ink and the girls have come up with yet another fabbo challenge to get your creative juices flowing... Just Add DSP!
After a false start that I just couldn't bring myself to make public, I used the opportunity to make a 12x12 scrapbook page using a photo from our recent trip to Sydney...

The great thing about Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper is that all the hard work is done as far as co-ordination. No longer can I be found wandering the aisles of my local scrapbooking stores hunting down papers that will work with the one that have in my hand, that invariably doesn't have a solid cardstock colour that matches either.
The papers in this layout are all taken from the Sweet Always pack, and I have only used seven of the 12 different designs that make up the pack, so the options for mixing and matching are pretty much endless!
Here's a closer look at the detail...

The ribbon rose is a gorgeous idea that was detailed in our demonstrator publication, 'Impressions' that we demonstrators get each month. It's such a sweet and simple idea and a whole other way to use ribbon (and it uses ribbon, I will tell you!).
The idea of using it as a flower centre was one that I gleaned from one of the most talented scrapbookers I know, who also happens to be a Perth girl - Tanya Tahir.
I have never seen a layout of hers that I haven't gazed open-mouthed at. Such a talent and a lovely girl too :)
So there you have it - Just Add Ink Challenge #23 - a fabulous reason to hide away with some pretty papers and turn them into something prettier.
