March Book Inspired Stash Challenge ~ Guest Designer Nicole Doiron

Hello friends of SOS!
It's time to reveal our
March Book Inspired Stash Challenge.
Thank you to everyone who played along in our February Challenges. 
There were so many wonderful creative entries linked up last month.

We hope you all get a chance to play along with us again this month and invite a 
friend to play along as well.

So without further is the challenge:

The Challenge:
Create a layout inspired by the BOOK COVER.
You are allowed to use anything from the cover that inspires you,
for instance, the banner, the colors, title, etc. must include GOLD embellishments and/or
GOLD alphas on your page.

When posting your layout, you must include in your write up
what inspiration you pulled from the book cover, to be considered for the 
random prize drawing.

Please join with us in extending a warm welcome to our
Guest Designer
Nicole Doiron
"I'm Nicole from Canada's beautiful East coast! I share my home with my fiance Yves and our fur baby Sugar the cat. I love reading, music (yes! I do sing in the shower sometimes!), social game nights with friends, road trips and spending as much time in my scrap room as I can! I have a shabby chic romantic style and I love to dabble with mixed media techniques. I started scrapbooking in 2004, starting blogging about it in 2011 and it has been a marvelous adventure ever since! I have had many wonderful designing opportunities throughout the years and I am now thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Scrap Our Stash! I really hope that you will enjoy my creations this month and that you will visit my blog Scrap-Utopia to see more."

Thank you Nicole for being our guest this month.  How exciting it is to have one of our former awesome team members working with us this month.  We just want you to know that we love and appreciate the fabulous inspiration you will be sharing with us!

Take a look at Nicole's awesome interpretation of this month's stash challenge.   
What a fabulous page and that super cute photo just pops on her page:

"Hello Happy"
"What a pleasure it was to create this layout inspired by this fun and pretty book cover! There was many shabby chic elements that were just perfect for my style, from the colors to the overall celebratory feel. I added hearts just like in the image and many gold embellishments 
along with my title.
The photo is of my niece Daphne looking pretty adorable with her face painted!"
