A simple Layout!

Hello people!! Popping in to share a simple layout I did using Sketchy Thursday Sketch and couple of good news :)

Lets cover the layout first. I scrapped my pictures from the college days yet again (those were the best days ever :) ). Did I ever tell you I am a complete nature girl? I love all things nature and it has a very calming effect on my senses. Whenever I am stressed/ tensed/angry/sad/upset, all I do is go to my terrace, take a walk, look at the sky and the scenery and everything just falls back to place :)

I used a mix of Studio Calico, Echo Park and Jillibean papers and stickers and kept it pretty simple.

 As for the news...good ones....I won the Kirsty's Crepe paper challenge at Do More With Less with my College days layout and now the same layout is getting published in Magazine.  Ohh yes..can you believe it? I couldn't! Because I am just starting out with layouts and I have a long long way to go :) So, its really an achievement for me.

And there is a fun giveaway going on at Lily Pad Cards

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 

Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching

Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.
