Nanna's girls

Happy Monday to you all.

I created this layout last night for Ant's challenge over at the SBT50 cyber crop that just finished.
It came together really quickly for me- 1.5 hours.

The challenge was to use chipboard, twine and buttons on your layout.
But all 3 of the items had to be altered in some way.

So my daughter and i went shopping today for new nail polishes. I added them to the drawer at home and saw all the old unwanted colours there. So I put them to use on my layout.

My layout has a red, pink and a white french polish on there  : )

I altered my chipboard with red and french manicure nail polishes!
I altered 2 buttons with pink nail polish
I pulled apart some craft twine and dipped in gold paint and added nail polish drips.

Notice the gorgeous Ah Scrap pinwheel and Bottle cap on there : ) Get your own Ah Scrap goodies in the next sale, Wednesday 8th May, 7;30 Pm on the Ah Scrap blog.

American crafts card stock

2 Crafty chipboard
Basic grey alphas

I have a huge stash of rainbow splendour goodies and they are so fun and colourful. Leonie and Chloe and both such amazing scrappers . Please check out their blogs and shops.

So what is the liebster award you ask?

Well The Liebster Award was designed to be a blog award

in the pay it forward fashion. It is awarded to blogs

that have fewer than 200 followers to encourage new
visitors to them. Once you have been nominated you award
it to five other blogs.

The rules are: Post the award to your blog,
give the award to five bloggers who you appreciate
that have fewer than 200 followers, then leave
