Scrap the Boys March Challenge

The challenge this month at Scrap the Boys is to use this sketch.

Here is my take:

I have always loved using bright colours and felt this photo warranted them to match the bright colours of the rainbow lorikeet sitting on my son's shoulder. I used a mix of patterned papers from Doodlebug and dug around in my embellishment stash for the embellies.
I used an old Purple Pumpkin fabric button and an old fimo bird on a pin. The wooden button is from Jillibean Soup. The enamel dots were from D-Lish Scraps and I used some star shaped clips and a couple of mini brads to hold down my date.

 I also used a brand new embellie - felt arrow from Charms Creations.

Happy Scrapping

Earlier this month I had my first page up as a DT member over on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog. I am using Kaisercraft Shine Bright this month. Full details of how I created this layout can be found over on the SBB blog here

In the meantime, here is a look at it and a couple of close ups.

I loved using this circle Prima Stencil and some Viva Decor stamping paint. Created a lovely gritty feel with a bit of sparkle.

D-lish Scraps March Inspiration Board

I'm lucky to be staying on for another term on the D-lish Scraps Inspiration Team. This month we have a gorgeous inspiration board to inspire you - Caribbean Skies full of teal, yellow, grey and white. Full details of the challenge and rules can be found on the D-lish Scraps blog here

I love this colour combo. I was inspired most by the frames in the bottom left hand corner so decided to use this as my basis for my layout.

I am also in love with Macaws at the moment too and the blue and yellow one's matched the colour scheme beautifully.
You can find lots of wood veneer frames in store and I painted these to match the colours of the board.  I also used some Pinkfresh Studio enamel label frames and some alphas I got in a Pinkfresh kit (which is no longer stocked). To fill in the gaps I stamped some frames.

Why don't you give it a go this weekend?
