Snug as a bug... by Michelle

Hello everyone!!
Im Michelle, most of you would know me as the current Inspiration Team Co-ordinator. However as of today I have jumped ship!! I am very honoured to have been chosen as one of the very lucky creators to be part of the newest D-lish Scraps Design Team.

A little about me .. 
Im a 30 year old mum of 1, engaged and building our first family home. I live in Geelong, Victoria.
Ive been scrapbooking on and off for the last 9 or so years. More so in the last 4-5 years since starting a family. I fell in love with Project Life back in 2010 with its ease of documenting life, but have slowly made my way back to traditional Scrapping after discovering D-lish Scraps back in 2013. Since then I have been part of the Creative turned Inspiration Teams and more recently a promotion to IT Co-Ordinator. I have loved every minute of being part of the D-lish team in some way, and hope to continue inspiring all our wonderful crafters over the next 6 months. 

For my very first layout Im sharing something I created for this months Inspiration Board. I made this prior to being accepted on the Design Team, and found it a real challenge to use colours I don't normally gravitate towards. 
 Absolutely stunning board to be inspired by

Ive taken inspiration from the sketch, the colour palette and the sparkly pops of gold
Items used from my personal stash are strips of paper from the Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection, white cardstock, vellum, a favourite doily, Heidi Swapp alphas & splatters of Color shine. 
All other embellishments, listed at the bottom of the post can be found within the D-lish shop, unless sold out due to my massive shopping spree a few weeks back lol

I love clusters of mixed embellishments together, and like most scrappers, always an odd number

I love the versatility of the bags within store too, perfect to use as a photo mat if you can't find the right pattern papers to match. The string of sequins was the perfect colour choice to blend in with this layout. Its actually white, but reflects the mint and pink/purple just nicely.

I did go a little crazy and purchased a few packs of the rainbow Freckled Fawn arrows (in both sizes)  
They may feature in a few projects in the next few months, as they're perfect for holding things together when you run out of glue tape ;)

Freckled Fawn - Coloured Arrow clips, Wood Chips Hearts
