Simply Renee and Dusty Attic Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Simply Renee and Dusty Attic Blog Hop!  We have much inspiration to share with you today!  Oh and of course... some fabulous prizes!

Simply Renee manufactures quality products that help you customize your organizational needs.  You may be familiar with their Clip it Up products.  You can view Simply Renee’s complete product line on their website.  They are having an amazing sale right now!  

For this blog hop, Simply Renee has teamed up with The Dusty Attic, an Australian owned and operated laser cutting business that designs and manufactures craft items and embellishments.  You can view some of these wonderful products as well as beautiful projects by fellow crafters on the Dusty Attic Ning site.  As you hop along with us today, you will see inspirational projects made by some of the talented Dusty Girls!  Here is the project I created for you using Dusty Attic chipboard embellishments.

{home}

I've incorporated the lovely Dusty Attic 'Fancy Letterbox #2' and one of the 'Mini Keys and Locks' in this layout (the latter is playing hide and seek, so let me know if you find it! lol).  Just given a very simple treatment of gesso and glimmermist applied with a paintbrush to 'rust up' the letterbox a little, it is the perfect accompaniment to the fussy cut Prima Pixie Glen pp.




Yes, I have scrapped this pic of my fabulous four before, but I'm sure there is no limit on how many times you can scrap a favourite pic is there?  lol

I did kinda feel guilty that my layout did not feature my scrap space and I was therefore not sharing, like so many of my Dusty sisters, so I snapped a few pics the other day during one of those rare tidy moments!  :)





With my little family of 6 residing in a 4 bedroom home, space is understandably at a premium.  I therefore share my creative space with the family dining needs, however with the help of some Expedit units, a long bench and lots of baskets, the dual purpose room copes quite well.  The only thing missing is one or two of these:
What prizes are we giving away today?
Simply Renee is giving away a Clip it Up Base Unit, an Upper Tier and Zip Bags!

Sigh. Your page is so so beautiful. Great pic and I love how you used the little bird house. Cute.
And your scrap space looks great. I just came from Belinda's blog and I was hyperventilating when I saw her messy space and said how I had to be tidy....now I realise after seeing your space that I am a little messy...just a little.
