la hat

This fulfils 4 challenges over @ e2c blog. Something soft, something hard (one of Decembers challenges), this months colour challenge of  dark brown, pink, green and blue. Sue's sketch challenge and the matted title challenge. I think I've got it all covered.

The something soft is the blue felt and the pink hearts that I cut from an old pair of Annie's flannie Pj's. The hard bit is the pin, the 3 beads in the left corner and the strip of pink bling. I've turned Sue's sketch upside down and rearranged it a fair bit. The 2 pieces of green PP are instead of the 2nd and 3rd photo requirement. But the basis of the sketch is still there. The colour challenge happened to work perfectly with this LO and it also happened to be the one I was about to start on anyway. And as you can see the title is matted in green.  ***ETA. When I looked at the LO this morning it still looked a bit bland to me so I've added a material leaf vine on the left side that overlaps the pink bling a bit. Some of the leaves are raised so it gives the LO a bit of a lift.***

And I just wanted to give a shout out to Janice. Her challenge LO for the 'something soft, something hard' was picked up for publication. WAHU to you chick. I think it may have slipped under the radar of those who follow the e2c blog as it happened over the mad December month. So congrats to you and your personal goal achieved.

lopve Sean's hat...it suits him..LOL!! at least he wouldnt have got burnt.
did you see the vintage christmas tags similar to the valentines one - they are lovely too.
hope Kym has matching socks on today?
i have some letters like KC one too - should use them with the kids..have done it at Xmas time .
do you order your photos online? and pick them up later? that would be such a time saver. is it through rabbit still and then pick up at retravision? thinking that is an excellent way of doing it and much more time efficient.
PS love the photo of "sean" painting - and the effect looks fantastic!!
