Scrap FX Blog Hop


Welcome to the very first Scrap FX Blog Hop!!!!

Hi & welcome, my name is Michelle and this is my little creative corner where I share what makes me Happy!  
I am an Aussie Mum to 2 Boys and I am  addicted to all things paper, paint and ink. I don't do flowers or pretty terribly well (I only have Boys) but I love getting inky fingers and splashing paint around. But enough about me, lets get busy with the hop!!!

This is your first stop and I hope you have time to sit, have a coffee and join us for a creative adventure!

Now because there are a few of us to get through I shall try to keep my ramblings to a minimum.
The theme for the Hop is "Love", which coincides with the new releases by Scrap FX for April, we all had a heap of fun with these! So make sure you pay everyone a visit and leave a comment to be in the running for a "Fabbo" Scrap FX prize pack. Feast your eyes on this lot:




Ok, so here is what I created. I played around with the small shadow box kit. Sooo much fun to play with!
Sorry about the photos but the weather here has not been kind, & what do you know.... the shadow box actually casts a bit of shadow inside!

All of the components are Scrap FX Chipboard yummies.

A close up view of the inside of the box.

The Swallow is treated with crackle accents.


Love the teeny wings!

 So that is it from me, if you have any questions leave it in the comments field & I will get back to you. I tried to keep it short and sweet as you do have an inspiring road ahead of you! Be sure to visit all the other girls in the hop their work is amazing and all of them have very different styles, so we hope you will all find something to inspire!

Don't forget, to be in the running for the grand prize, you have till the 6th May at Midnight to leave a comment at each Designers' Blog and at the end of your journey leave some love at the ScrapFX Blog! 

If you decide to become a follower here, I have a little random prize that I will give away aswell! Take a peek:



Your next stop is Bellaidea, and here is the full list in case you get a little lost:

Michelle Logan (you are here YAY!!!)

Happy Hopping!
