Scrap FX Blog Hop Winner and a page for Cocoa Daisy

The winner for the Scrap FX goodies is Paula of My Creative Ramblings.

UPDATE- May 8th! Paula DID follow my blog but for some reason I didn't get a notice so disregard yesterday's note. Sorry Paula- you got back to me right away- thank you!

It sure was a crazy weekend. International  Scrapbooking Day had me jumping from Cocoa Daisy to Scrapbooks and Cards Today (a Canadian Magazine) trying to finish challenges on time.

Here is a page for the graffiti challenge over at Cocoa Daisy- have you SEEN the Graffiti Bridge kit?
I made this for for the Cocoa Daisy Kite Strings challenge in which you had to use more than 12 inches
of string. The chipboard is from Scrap FX.  The washi tape is from Gauche Alchemy which has some fantastic color and print themed combos- check the out HERE.  
Naturally the kit already sold out. I am a stamp subscriber so I at least got my hands on their FABULOUS stamps!

Some detail shots!
The photo is printed on the back of the paper
by mistake giving it a painterly look. 
It took 4 days to dry so I couldn't touch it much...
which is why it's wonky on the page.
I used watered down cream colored acrylic paint and washi tape to alter
this chipboard title- one of my all time favorites from Scrap FX.
Gauche Alchemy washi tape- get some!
The black staples are from Making Memories
love how rock and roll they look!
Side note!
Miss Lola does ATTITUDE in the BEST way!
Much love mi gente!
