Out of my Comfort Zone

Over at UK Scrappers we are busy preparing for our cybercrop. A cybercrop or CC is exactly that. A group of scrapping fanatics get together over the WWW and have fun taking part in challenges,classes and learning new techniques. One of the precrop classes was a layout embracing white space. Now I'm really not good at leaving empty spaces on my pages so this class was a real challenge for me. I did the page though and it's not one of my favourites, but I'm glad that I did manage to get out of my comfort zone.

The original layout can be seen if you follow This Link and open the attatched PDF. Below is my take on it.

 I took DGD1 and DGD2 out for pizza during the summer and they had a lovely time. The original layout has suns where I put the pizza pies and a cloud where I used a cupcake.
 I cut the cupcake shape freehand. No I also didn't know I could draw a somewhat decent looking cupcake. I painted it with acrylics, outlined it in brown felt tip pen and addedd some gems and a button. The pizza pies are made from kraft cardstock also outlined in brown and felt tipped coloured dots for 'toppings'.
The circles and flower are die cut with my cuttlebug and finished with a button and a gem. As always thanks for coming.
