Amanda Lendrum
I love the simplicity of this layout, the mixture of flowers, buttons and brads and the large photo.
Amanda's take on the dare is
Something New is The heidi Swapp writing on the photo
Something Old is The photo

Slide Show - Dare # 12

Dare # 13 - Lianne

This was a layout I did for work using the new Heidi Grace range we have just got in. I thought I'd share it as it fits in well with the theme.
Something New - Heidi Grace
Something old - Provocraft Bitty alphas
Something borrowed - the idea of using the circles - something a bit different for me.

This will be our last dare for 2006. We will be back into it mid January.

So please take this dare and be in to win a FANTASTIC prize from Scrapbook Outlet NZ.
