white with one challenge

I had a spot of bother trying to find" Majorca Blue"
there were so many different interpretations of the colour, this is what I made up myself using navy blue with a dash or two of white pretty close I thought to what was on the challenge pic.
the photo is of two of my sisters at one sisters son's wedding..The title is "We will be Swinging from the Chandelier tonight "

Scrapbook Boutique July Colour Challenge

Scrapbook Boutique July Colour Challenge...
I just felt the need for flowers as on the challenge guide.. I used this photo of the path at the back of our house. My daughter in law and grandson cleared it for me I just had to take a pic of it as it soon over grows..
I though it looked just like a mystery path  perhaps fairies maybe at the bottom of this garden path amongst the flowers..

White with one July Colour Challenge.


Having another shot at the WHITE..... with 1    Colour Challenge for July.this time .
I'd missed a couple as i was frustrated about the colour not being able to find the colour as specified but now knowing that the best match is what is asked for i feel better about it and do my best ti find the best matching one.
I've done another layout using my granddaughters "SELFY" ...
This particular look makes me straight away think of the song ..".MELANCHOLY BABY "
which I've used as my title......

Scrapbook Boutique June Challenge

Scrapbook Boutique June Challenge...
Had a look at this colour challenge and liked it so i went searching for the right this and that... things the one can never find when one wants them... I have come up with this.. My 2nd sons wedding 15 yrs ago . The time has flown by I remember it as if was yesterday. ...

I have also made a card one for any reason. I like to do a card sometimes when I feel in the mood to do so one cannot have too many on hand. I do do special ones too when I feel extra crafty...

Scrap Around The World April Mood Board Challenge 2015

I just loved this mood board I could look at it all day so peaceful and relaxing .
Once again I've chosen another photo of my son and daughter inlaw"s wedding photos from their beach wedding.
The setting was just so beautiful .I truly thought the quote was just perfect so I used it for the title also for the journal part as I felt the photo said all that was needed .
The colours also I chose from the board just fell into place

Kraft plus March challenge

March challenge for Kraft plus is for Glitter and a sketch.
And what more fitting is the glitter and glam of a school formal for this challenge I've chosen to do a couple of photos I'd taken of my No 1 granddaughters yr. 9 end of year formal. The sparkle of the drop behind the girls gave me the inspiration to choose as with the glamorous idea of dressing up

Dusty Attic February Inspiration Board 2015

Dusty Attic Inspiration Board Feb. 2015..

The colours here are just so beautiful and had me thinking and searching once again. I found a photo that really made me smile and I laughed at the memory of the fun time we all had with the Photo Booth props. at a wedding reception ..A truly great idea Photo Booths to be able to let your hair down and be silly as everyone else does the same.
 I'm a tad short on Dusty Attic Chipboard so used the most suited to this photo. "Enjoy the Moments that make You Smile "DA0587...

Scrap Around the World February Mood Board

Scrap Around The World February Mood Board 2015
 I was taken in by the quote....The colours and the pic of the forest or bush area .
After much searching and thinking of just what photo could I use for this mood.
I cannot just pick up a photo to use without a real study of it first . I found this one it was taken quite some years ago my daughter took it on one of the school camps she went on I 'm not sure where it was but I know  her first yr of secondary school
The dried flowers I've used are from a plant in my garden I thought went well for the rustic look in the mood board as with hemp and twigs.
The photo and the quote made me think of what ever magical wonders could be at the end of the path if there was an end .....

 My layout for this month is off my grandson . This was a formal shot of him whilst attending a traditional Japanese festival for children ages 3, 5 &7 yrs.
to celebrate the growth and well being..As being a formal photo I felt I could not really "Jazz" it up tho I did pop the gorgeous pussy cat in by the tree with the bird cage. Nothing more I felt I could add to this,,

Just going to get in before the close.....
I knew what I wanted to do with this photo I had of my 3rd granddaughter [a selfie from facebook] I just so loved the expression. but could not for the life of me just work out what.
I was really taken by the January Mood Board as in colours and the wistful look about it. , it took me awhile but now this is what I've come up with....The flowers are really a pink as with the frame but that's what the light does for you when you don't know what your doing...
