Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge - Use Your Scraps!

Hello there well a busy day ahead. I have my babies at home today as we have school open day. I am off to see how well they are doing at school. My eldest daughter brought home the book that she had her poem published in. Her poem was called " War Again" it is really moving. Unfortunately publishing laws mean I cannot share it here with you. There are only about 12 from there school in the book which features young poets from across London and Middlesex. I am so proud!

Okay this weeks challenge at Digi Doodle shops Best  is to "Use Up Your Scraps". You can make a card, an atc, a tag it is purely your choice. So here is how I made my DT piece for the challenge.

I decided to make a tag as this way I used up scrap card, paper and embellishments. I used some cardstock that was left from making an 8" by 8" card. I cut it into a tag shape. I used some scraps of Linen Closet DCWV paper ( I love this paper so every scrap will get used in one way or another). I added some ribbon, lace and flowers to the tag and a sentiment from my sentiment box.

The image is one of my favourite from the Digi Doodle Shop. It is from the "Fun shoes set # 2". You get three different styles of shoes. You must go and check out the store it has an up to 50% off sale on right now. I coloured the image with promarkers and copics and cut out part of the image to create a slightly different look to the shoe. I added some white gel pen and some glossy accents to make the shoe look patent. I also added some stickles to the flowers for a bit of bling. I attatched the shoe to the tag with some foam pads for dimension.

Thanks for your time today. Please hop over and see our challenge. Hugs Pascale
