My first LO for 2012 which I created the other night ☺  This one is for a challenge over at 
Polly Scrap Kits - the January Colourful Style challenge by Felicity!  You have to use the colours: Green, Teal and Silver.  So here is what I've come up with:
 I simply adore how my little one is looking so thoughtful in this picture - perfect for scrappin'.♥
I've used assorted items from my stash; also some new things from Kaisercraft - the Hummingbird Collection - ooh-la-la - this one is amazing - I bought quite a few of the goodies from this collection.  Here are some close-up's:
 ... i've recycled some cardboard from a drink carton - loved the silver tree and it worked perfectly for this challenge - some prima flowers, twine and tag ...
... i have used a few of the die-cut shapes from the Hummingbird collection - another silver item is the frame peaking from behind the photo - found at my local discount store ☺ -

You will notice the background - I've made this using a rather large piece of bubble wrap, mists and inks - i'm thinking of doing a post using recycled items as a stamp - leave a message if this is something you would like and I'll see what I come up with.☺

Now, if you would like to join in with this fun challenge, you will need to pop over to the forum at Polly Scrap Kits for all the details - thanks to Felicity for a very fun challenge☺

Thanks for coming by and happy crafting.
