Celebrate '13' layout by Tania Ballestrin

Hi everyone, Tania here, sharing my very first post as part of this amazing Design Team at Scrappingclearly!!! (So very thankful to be here among some very talented ladies!!!)

I was lucky enough to be given this gorgeous Teresa Collins Paper kit- LIFE EMPORIUM, & accessories to play with! 

I used this month's sketch & chose to scrap about my daughter turning 13 years old recently. There were a few celebrations, but her favourite was spending the night in a Hotel room with myself and a couple of her friends. They drank pretend champagne with strawberries, it was very cute!!!

 I love woodgrain anything, so used that as my base pages, with a layer of Gesso & some splatters! I then layered with the sketch as a guide, using nearly every paper in the collection! I made my own tags & re-enforcement rings from the papers, rounded off the corners & popped some household string in them. 

There were so many gorgeous embellishments to compliment the range, including rub ons, chipboard & die cut stickers & brads! ( I especially love the wooden dots!!!) 

The alphas by We R Memory Keepers were pretty cool, with a kind of reptile leather look!!! 
I used a tab punch & made another tag for my hidden journaling, with a little flower rub on to embellish!

There is still so much of the kit left to play with, so I will have fun seeing what else I can create with it! Don't forget to check out the march sketch and play along! Till next time, happy scrapping!!!

Products used & where to find them!!!
