Good morning everyone!

Marelle here to let you know that the WINNER of the May challenges will be announced TOMORROW!! So make sure you pop back to see who has won!!!

I am so excited, this is my first post as SUYS Group 2 DT Co-Ordinator!

The second Challenge for June criteria is:
The colour scheme of TEAL AND CREAM - and don't forget your handmade item on your project! We look forward to seeing what you all come up with!!

Just look at our talented DT samples wow -

First we have a beautiful layout from Crystal wow look at this !

I just love this gorgeous layout and I spy a gorgeous teal/cream lollipop flower from Charms Creations(this is a new colour scheme in her range).

Next we have Gilly's layout

Gilly has used a Clouds and More new handmade banner bunting, and she has added in highlights of pink and yellow to compliment her photos. Wow just look at all the hand stitching and detail just gorgeous!! I have shown a close up of that stitching in the second photo!

Next we have this awesome layout from Leanne oohhh love the spotty togs !

Next is Penny - oh how adorable is this layout!

And here is my layout: I have used stazon ink in teal and used a flourish stamp to stamp onto calico to use as a border for my 1975 photo!

I know these fantastic layouts will inspire you to create a teal/cream colour scheme - looking forward to seeing your projects!

Have a great June 15th!!
