*Photo of the Week & Scrappy challenges*

Happy Scrapbooking day!
I hope you have a great day, before I share what I have been doing I will share this:

Today's may look a bit random but after buying a new polish {which is uterly amazing, it crackles when applied creating a nail art look - opps off topic!} I decided to photograph it for my 365, I had a pllay with some different angles and I really liked the look of this one.

Speaking of photos, this morning I received a photobox order. I havd decided that I spend too much printing my own photos at home and it is more than a third cheaper to have them printed properly. I can't wait to scrap these beauties....., I have been participating in a couple of challenges over on Shimelle's blog.... go check it out, I will wait! 

The first challenge set is to use patterned paper as a background, I have had this paper for ages and I'm so pleased I have finally used it:

The second challenge set was to create a triangle somewhere on your layout, I decided to use Adam and make the triangle with the pictures

Adam is obsessed with picking dandelions at the moment and gets so excited when he sees you can imagine what he was like when we went to Norfolk!!!! He also says 'dandelions like it is two words, hence the title!

I think that maybe it for me tonight.....look out for a special post tomorrow!
Night all

Love these layouts, the peek-a-boo photos are sooo cute, and the dandelions layout is perfect, I love the papers you've used and the way you've done the title in the triangle centre.

I've been looking at Shimelle's challenges all day (I'm about to post a layout for one of them), and the triangle challenge was the one that appealed to me least. But after seeing your take on it I want to give it a go - might have to scraplift your LO if thats ok?! x

Such cute layouts Rachel. I did the patterned paper challenge too and will post it in one day next week since we have all week to link up.

The polish looks interesting, I really like OPI colours ... but I can't stand chipped polish and the thought of buying it to look like that doesnt appeal ... but, when you apply it as nail art I am sure it takes on another dimension, could you post a pic as an example one day? You know, in between the three million other things you have to do! ;-)

I love how you have used stickers on your photos to create that title Rachel. It looks fab.

There's something exciting about getting a big batch of photos in the post isn't there?

Hi Rachel, have just posted my scraplift of your page, thanks again for letting me use your layout for inspiration!

Also love that nail polish, my sister has it and it looks so cool! x
