Scrapbook Boutique April Challenge 2016 Mood board

Scrapbook Boutique April mood board 2016

I did this layout on a whim ... just picked up this photo of my mum and thought I'll scrap that ... I've not many pics of mum as she's in a nursing home too far for me to visit often... my sisters get together twice a year for a "Mum & Sister " visit as we all live far from each other... Mum is now in her 92nd year ... we are getting together for another Mothers Day visit those of us that can 2 of my sisters are too far and 1 brother much too far...We are hoping she is still with us till then ... tho I'm afraid she does not she's very tired had a rather hard life and is ready to go and join Dad, I know this layout is blue [the mood board pink] but I went for the feeling and the thoughts of love and beauty from the mood board.
 ... I just had too share it

Scrapbook Boutique Feb Mood Board Challenge

Scrapbook  Boutique Feb. Mood Board Challenge...

I have chosen a selfie of my Granddaughter No 4 for the subject of my layout for this challenge ....
She comes up with some fabulous ones ... some sad ... happy.. melancholy.. you name it she's got the face for it...This one I have called it Mona Lisa smile ... is she sad happy or just sulking...

I went for the colours of the board and the beautiful red rose ... I love flowers on my layouts..
Looks like the colours are so different must be the light I took my photo in..

More than Words challenge Wonderful & Sparkle

My layout is not of my usual style ... I've no flowers .. I thought this precious girl was enough without too much embellishment... the quote I used was written in black I went over it with gold ink but doesn't show up in the photo.. I used gold doily cut in half with a few gold hearts  for embellishments for Sparkle..
The quote reads ...
               " You are special and amazing and are here to do wonderful things
                  follow your heart and let your beautiful light shine "
the little words at the bottom of the layout are  " make it happen "  "everyday "
This gorgeous girl is having a hard time coping with anxiety and depression and has been for quite a few years... she has support and the love of many .... everyday is precious..she has the most beautiful smile
sparkling eyes and she is my butterfly...

White with 1 Challenge Chocolate

My master piece for this Challenge .......I cannot seem to get a straight photo ...
the colours look pale but they are chocolate in different shades and medium as with the white..
My title is a quote but forget where  I got it .... Journaling reads  [in part] my sister Shirley taken at mum & dads on the occasion of dads 70th ....[.back when ? I haven't worked it out but it was more than 10 years..].

More than Words Challenge January-Personality

My entry for the More Than Words January Challenge -Personality

I did this on the spur of the moment as I was having a "TIDY UP " of my craft room and had so much of the odd bits of whatever so I decided to start using them up in a fashion of confusion....meaning where ever they fit in.. My background seems to suite my personality .. to me anyway.. I'm here there and everywhere and sometimes just go around in circles I took this photo using web cam at 5-30 am .. My Maggie mae dog get me up at 5am so I start early on my computer fiddling..Some of the words cannot be seen on this very clearly I have also written a list of what I like and placed it in a clear pocket on the back of this layout. ... I'm not a great  "Selfie" taker....

White with one challenge Jan.

Green is not an easy colour on it's own ...trying to find a photo to scrap using white & green not easy ...
I came up with this photo taken 2011 when we had a bit of a flood ...our dam flowed over because of all the rain we had as we get the overflow from other property and dams ... it was good to see as it has been a long time since our dam has had water... it's dry as ..don't know when it will fill again.   [The flowers are green but look a bit blue in this pic ]
