I almost didn’t make it for the challenge Scrap-it-Lah 2nd Anniversary Bloghop: Week 4 because my printer was out of inks..huhu! Luckily Dear Hubby has been so sweet to go to the nearest shop today (as on Wednesday) after work and bought me new inks. He even baby sit our son for a few hours so that I can get down and do the layout peacefully.

And the best part is the new items I ordered from Simon Says Stamp 10 days ago have finally arrived. I bought Martha Stewart doily lace punch (which I have been eyeing for a while) and straight away tried the punch as you can see in the layout..hehe!
I also bought Webster’s Pages 6 x 6 TRENDSETTER Petite Papers which some has been cut and used as a tag and a whole piece has been used on the right side of the layout. I should have bought their 12 x 12 papers as well so that I can fussy cut some of the beautiful roses.
Oh, I managed to use few items from Jenni Bowlin range like the butterfly stamp, dye ink and her paint dabber in Malted Milk for this layout.
The butterfly is stamped on a white cardstock in Cough Syrup ink. I put some glossy accents (which you can hardly see the effect in the picture) on the butterfly. Overall it is such a nice feeling to be able to incorporate all the new materials and tools I bought for this challenge. At least I don’t get to feel guilty for hoarding those stash for years to come..haha!
I am also entering this layout for Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog 2nd Anniversary – anything goes.
Who knows I might be one of the lucky entrants to get some more great goodies from their store..I wish!!
