White With One ...Dec. Challenge

I thought I would have ago at this one ...so difficult it was . I found out just what colour to use now I had to find the right photo.I took this one when i was in Maldon a couple of days ago I just loved the white picket fence and the beautiful Hydranges .. then to put it altogether I had a problem.. as I'm trying to pack up for renovations ..[but needing to scrap] could not find anything ..had to make do with what I could find close at hand.. I think it looks  "delicate"

I was taken in by the colours of the flowers and of the quote. " Life Is Beautiful"
    the layout I've created is of my mum and sisters . We just love to be together.
These flowers are just so vibrant in colour how could one not be taken by them.

1 2 3 Challenge Blog Sept. Challenge

1 2 3 Challenge Blog Sept. Challenge.

I thought I'd have a crack at this challenge... easy ..so I thought ..until I tried looking for Khaki paper or card. I ended up mixing up paint as close as but the evening photography does not do it justice....
As I said in my title about needing to get all info on photo's ..sadly there's no one who can tell who the little child is in this pic. I know one person is my Aunty [sister on dad's side ]and I'm pretty sure the older lady is my "Little Nanna" my dad's mum...My Mother is still alive but being almost blind she would not be able to tell me..I have hidden journaling on the tag ..

Scrap Africa sketch challenge 33

Scrap Africa

Sketch Challenge no.33

I always seem to muck up trying put my blog page just right, I must practice . I think I've done something with the font now .

The photo in this layout is of No 2 son during his days at university. I am sure it was a study shot taken by another student for an assignment purpose. I played with the white background paper with a bit of stamping and Black Gesso then added what I could find that would bring this together.

Scrap Around the World Sept. mood board challenge.

I am going to try and link up properly this time ..
 I was taken in by the magical part of the mood board. I had some lovely paper that just wanted to star in a special layout and when this challenge came up I knew it would be the one.
I've done some fussy cutting and it went together okay  ,well and I'm happy with how it turned out it looks quite magical to me.. Just like fairies at the bottom of the garden...

Scrap around the world July mood board challenge

Scrap around the world July mood board challenge..

This mood board did not grab me at first but the more I looked at it and the  wonderful inspiration from the team s work I was then taken by the quote and colours.
 I have a few "Selfies" of my grand daughter which she had put up on face book I have been using in layouts and this particular one had a hint of blue and pink so that is what I went for plus the gentle expression..
The colour of the flowers is actually a bright pink I took this photo of my layout inside with my iphone of which I do not know how to drive as yet so no colour fix. the quote is
            "Be nice
                   to yourself
              it is hard to be happy
                  when some one is
                        mean to you
                        all the time " ....

Scrapbook Boutique Colour ChallengeJuly

Scrapbook boutique July Colour Challenge...

  The colours for July are [ it looks to me like] two shades of brown  , cream &  pale yellow..
I tried to match up as best I could with this layout..tho as usual my photography is not the greatest nor the lighting as it was too cold and wet to do it outside I took the photo inside. I have a few photos like this selfie of my eldest grand daughter of which I've quite taken to do scrap layouts of.

So I went about trying to find the colours I found this photo of my daughter with her youngest daughter . I titled it "HAPPY ON A SWING".
I had meant to have the colour challenge pic up first but the computer decided otherwise.
