Hello there,
How is your day going? Cant believe it is Monday already AND the last week of august... crazyness!!!

I am just popping up a layout I created over the last few days and it is for
ANNAS CRAFT CUPBOARD MINI CHALLENGE on Facebook and it is to use STENCILS.. well I have quite a few stencils so my challenge was.. which ones was I going to use!!!!
Anyhoo I used two of my favs, to add a bit of texture to the back ground of my layout and as I have used a photo of my granddaughter I was after a soft look as well...
 So a closer view of the stencilling..

You can see the two stencils I have used on my page.. just with texture paste over some smooched water color..

Sugar and spice..

I have used a mix of Kaisercraft papers and some dies. The flowers are a mix of brands too..  Thank you Annas Craft Cupboard for a lovely challenge to use stencils on my layout.
Thanks too for coming on by today, and I appreciate all the lovely comments you leave me ..  Have an amazing day!!
