 The background has been created using texture paste,
gelatos, stamps, washi and inks

SUYS - Sept

Here is my take on the challenge over at
This is the inspiration image to get you creating
I created my page using the blues and pinks
from the image
and I went with a Summery photo with a flower.
I also used some watercolouring with gelatos as it reminded
me of the top left image in the inspiration image.
My handmade item is the FLAIR by APOCD

Scrap the Girls - June

Here is my take on the challenge at Scrap The Girls for June.
The inspiration for this months challenge was their new blog header
So I chose to scrap my page with the pinks and greens
along with some Spring-like elements, like the butterflies on my page and little flowers.

This months challenge at SUYS was a sketch challenge
Here is my take on the challenge
with my handmade check flag
I used the sticker at the top right to make the heading
'good times' and the other wording in it
to be a sub title...let the "good times' roll

 and a few close ups

 'sun kissed' chic tag from Scrapping Life

Scrap the Girls - May Challenge

This months Scrap the girls caught my eye.
You had to complete your page just by interpreting this quote:
" Something old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue"
So here is my take on this quote.
I went with NEW - my new Heidi Swapp embellishments &
BLUE - blue gelatos, feather and doily
This is a photo of mine and my daughters colourful colour run socks.

A closeup of the embellishments (my NEW item)
 some of the BLUE items
 and a bit more detail
I really enjoyed making this page
