Time to Blog!

I have started this 4 times... and deleted each time. I am not really sure how to start! I did post once on the original Scrap Matrix Blog, and fully intended to keep that up. Ooops. I think I was subconsciously blocked, because to me, that was Rae's Scrap Matrix Blog, and I was a guest.
I know I could have redesigned that one, but it is too pretty to change - it just is not me. So, now I have a new one, and no excuses left, so here goes.
I have never entered a challenge before, but spent hours looking at challenge sites and so many beautiful entries, thinking... one day, maybe a should take the plunge. And apparently, you need a blog in most instances anyway, so no excuses left there either!
One of my favourite challenge sites has always been White With 1 so that is where I have decided to start, and created an entry yesterday for the Wild Orchid palette.
It started off well, and I was really pleased, had all my elements and colours all planned... then I spritzed - with the perfect (tested) colour - and as it dried on the texture paste it went pink!!!! More layers of colour to try to fix it... am posting it anyway. It will be worth a giggle if nothing else.

Now I just have to work out how to enter it!!!
Love. LAUGH. Scrap. Shop.
Cheers, Vicki
