Rustic Charm...

Well it is a beautiful day in July here down under in Australia - yes it is suppose to be winter but we have seen some very unusually warm days...considering it is winter I had decided today that I would use the Just Add Paper Kit from the D-Lish Scraps store for this month.

Inconjunction with the kit I enjoy using the Inspiration board from the D-Lish Scraps Blog to play around and let my mind wander & see what I can come up with.
 Okay so this is definiately not my usual colour style but isn't that what scrapbooking is about - taking yourself out of the comfort zone & playing around.  I hunted down a photo out of my husbands albums and come up with this...and yes as you know me I snuck in some bling too - the black & white paper has glitter on it from the Heidi Swapp range & black rhinestones in the middle of the flowers.
I really enjoyed the challenge and I have yet to write on the journaling spot & on the Documented paper in the little packed but will have to wait for hubby for that information.  

Tomorrow is my husbands birthday so we will Love, Cherish and Adore some more...

Challenges for July...

Well howdy there,

It has been a little while but I am here to share what I have created in the last two days... I am kinda in the zone & the creativity is just flowing at the moment which is rather nice.  I decided to try a couple of a good challenge when my head is in the game - so to speak.

So first up this layout is my take on the the first sketch for July found here at Stuck Sketches, I tried to stay true to the sketch as much as possible as I really liked the design of this sketch... Oh well you know me Bling it had to have - so this will become a two page spread as I have more photos from this event which is christmas show skate 2015.

Here is the sketch challenge that is featured on the Stuck Sketch Blog.

Second page completed is for the next Stuck Sketch Challenge for July found Here - I really had fun with this having to create my own frames to suite sections of my photos I wanted to highlight.  This is a very special day that made us all cry as our daughter graduated primary school - Grade 6.  Using many pieces of paper a lot of it from the Heidi Swapp collections which I didn't realise until just now as I type this that most of these were her papers.  I kinda found my self on a roll just creating & I like it.

Here is the sketch from the Stuck blog that corresponds to the above Layout.

My last Challenge for this week that I had a go at was  
I used the colours that I had for this layout & they seem a lot darker in the photo but I had so much fun creating this & I got another page completed!!  So I am very happy with that.  I worked on a mixed media background on this - really building it up with glitter, embossing powders, heart sequins  & more bling.

While I am on a roll this is the layout that started it all again... Just playing around having fun can kick start the creating process once again.

Thank you for visiting my blog & may you find some inspiration to do what makes you happy!
