"Gong Xi Fa Cai" LO

Gong Xi Fa Cai in Mandarin or Happy Chinese New Year in English is the title of my newly created layout for these (5) challenges:

1.  Colorful Creations' Scrap With Scraps Challenge by Kerys Sharrock;
2.  XOXO Scraplifting Challenge #19;
3.  Sketches4All Fruit Challenge by Nicolle Kramer; and
4.  Sketches4All June Butterflies Challenge by Khristen Foss
5.  Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #72: Food and/or Drink.

For XOXO's scraplifting challenge, I chose to scraplift Alaina's LO - Ten Reasons, shown below:

Alaina's Inspiration Layout
I just added handmade flowers created from fabric scraps my mom has stock of waiting for a right occasion to be of use.  And so I grabbed an inch long swatch to form a flower.  Viola, an entry to Colorful Creations' Scrap With Scraps Challenge!!

For the Sketches 4 All Challenge,  I made use of strawberry paper by Cosmo Cricket fussy cut for the Fruit Challenge and there are 6 butterflies on the bottom border strip for the Butterflies Challenge.  Ta dah!!
