Guest Designing with the 2Crafty Design Team Girls
At Scrap Around the World
"Beauty Is A Fragile Gift"

 Hello there, thanks so much for calling by.
2Crafty Chipboard are one of the major sponsors this month over at
Scrap Around the World challenge blog & as I am actually on both teams
I have created this second layout especially for the occasion.
I love scrapping famous people & Marilyn Monroe is no exception as I
wanted to do "girlie/grunge" & you can't get much more girlie than her!!

Scrap Around the World March Moodboard
I have drawn my inspiration from the moodboard.

 Naturally I have used lots of  2Crafty  chippies including ...
"Amazing Beauty" - title
Tiny Henri's Frame
ATC Mini Hearts & Stars
Large Cogs & Gears
Small Cogs & Gears
Chain Lengths
Heidi's Vines

Pretty flowers, tuille & lots of grunge.

I am really happy with my balance of grunge & feminine.

Love this pic.

Lots of stamping to finish off with.

 Lastly I think this little quote is just perfect for this layout...

"Beauty is a fragile gift"

Well thats all for today. I hope  this moodboard inspires you to
 perhaps join in with this months challenge too & as always
they have TWELVE amazing monthly PRIZES too.
Until next time.


  1. Ah've really captured the spirit of Norma Jean with the mix of feminine and grunge. Lovely work with the chippies, as usual and the touch of tulle is delish :D

  2. Di, I am so glad I found your blog - your work is just gorgeous! The Marilyn layout is beautiful - just as she was! (I just watched her in a movie a few nights ago titled River of No Return with Robert Mitchum.) Thanks for sharing!

  3. A really special & gorgeous layout DI! Thankyou!! The tulle looks incredible!!!
