Card - Have your cake and eat it too.

Hi Shazza,
I've completed a card today for the Marie A. ch#4. I've added a cluster of home made and paper flowers, some butterflies and a bow and used the colours blue and pink from the poster. Also, I had the most perfect sticker for the sentiment. You may recognise a few items I've added from the Kit I won from you.
 Kind regards, Dale

Jenna Bishop

Card - Happy Birthday Tash

Lena Schreinberg - 
Just Like Marie Antoinette
Apart from their monthly movie poster they give you four (!!) extra birthday inspirational movie posters!!!
And of course there are lots of prizes to be  won!!!
I immediately wanted to do something with the extra poster number 4….
Here is my creation…..


Julene Matthews - Erica's Gelato

Hi Shazza,
Cosmo cricket's beautiful papers inspired this whole layout.I had my first try at the cutting slits and folding back technique which became more complicated as I added the scrapmatts ornate frame over the top. I backed it with a co-ordinating red paper. The layout called for a close up(Erica eating an Italian gelato-our first of many) and a cluster of flowers.I just happened to have a variety of red turquoise and white flowers plus the scrapmatts clock face.

Would you believe this is my first real flower cluster?..I think I achieved the look.The lettering is Pink Paislee.
Debi Clark - Deb @ Play

Hi dear Shazza,
 Challenge 4 was great for me...I really enjoyed scrapping this photo of me!
Hehehe. So I had fun with the flowers, title & embellishments here. What a
great movie poster this one was!
 Cheers, Debi
Amanda Taylor - Sweet Baby Connor
hi Shazza here is my layout i did for the birthday celebration challenge #4 at fs2s...... using the marie antoinette poster... got all the criteria............... close up pic, name of person in photo in title, and a cluster of flowers - Amanda

Mary Steinmetz - Here's Hannah 

Here is my submission for birthday challenge #4 MAire Antoinette.
Again!.... it's my silly girl Hannah, she is forever taking pictures of herself.
I think I've cover everything, cluster of flowers, close up picture, and name in the title.

Jane Howden - Rach 

Loved the feel of this poster.  Here is my close up picture of my daughter from a few years ago (I’m gradually getting through my pile of “yet to scrap” pictures) with her nickname for title and flower cluster included.  - Jane
Melody Rainbow - Stephanie has such stunning Blue Eyes.

Kristal Barnwell - Little Miss Hannah

Sandi Robinson - Thats Nathan 
For 'Marie Antoinette' I knew just the photo I wanted to use...I took this close-up of Nathan last summer & although it begged to be scrapped I just hadn't got around to using it!! I never worry about using flowers on a 'boy' LO... & that Cosmo Cricket word spinner has been in my stash for an absolute age!!! So add in a title that says all those words apply to Nathan = all criteria checked & two long overdue for scrapping items used!! Result!! Thanks girls, for giving me the incentive to get them onto a page!! Great challenge! :)
