Off the Rails April challenge

Just squeezing this one in - my one and only effort for this month. The challenge over at Off the Rails was to use either of two mood boards to inspire a project.
I chose this board:

And here is my layout

I was inspired by not only the colours but also the circles. I created the multiply sign (the name of Ed Sheeran's current album) out of sequins. 

Rather a labour of love, but I loved the effect. Decided to keep it fairly simple after that.

Thanks for looking

My family tree - for Scrapbook Boutique

Hi all,
Been a bit quiet on the blogging front. With the school holidays and DH being home a lot I haven't had time to do much scrapbooking this month. I've also been distracted with photography. I'm the treasurer of our local photography group - CHIPA (Central Highlands Imaging and Photography Association) and every time DH is at home we go out taking photos.

Anyway, just sharing a layout I created for Scrapbook Boutique earlier this month. I have been playing with Bo Bunny Heritage and decided to create a layout featuring my family tree.

 Here is each side separately:

And a few close ups:

Details of how I created this layout and all the bits and pieces can be found on the Scrapbook Boutique blog here

D-lish Scraps April Inspiration Board Challenge

Hi, we're nearly half way through the month so I thought I'd share my sample for the April Inspiration Board at D-lish Scraps. This month's Aztec Dreams is full of blue, pink, mint, white and hints of gold.

There is also a cool sketch and I decided to follow this fairly closely but also took inspiration from the feathers and the glitter in the envelopes.

Here is my sample: 

For the background I used a gold metallic Gelato and some water and then stamped and gold embossed a background stamp.
I used some D-lish Scraps flowers in my cluster, along with a feathery flair button.

Some more flowers and flair button.

A glittery title and in the background a gold doily from D-lish.

I used Scrap Fx feather stamps and embossed one in gold and used glue and gold glitter for the other. 

Finally, a gorgeous arrow shaped clip to finish off. 

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative with this months board!
Be sure to share your creations with us via the link up tool on the D-lish Scraps blog

Remember that the sketch is totally optional, it's just there as a kickstarter if you need it. You can find all the rules for entering in the 'Current Inspiration Board' tab at the top of the page. And just a friendly reminder that layouts must be made exclusively for this challenge to be eligible for the prizes on offer. 
The winner, as chosen by the Inspiration Team, will receive a $30 D-lish Scraps store voucher and one random entrant will receive next months 'Just Add Paper' kit for free!

Happy scrapping

Challenge YOUself #16

Just scraping this one in. Another layout I started a couple of weeks ago was this one for Challenge YOUself #16 which was to scrap a page about your bucket list. I have taken a slightly different slant on this and scrapped about the photographs I would like to take.

Anyway, here is my page using a mix of Prima All About Me and Echo Park Creative Agenda.

And a couple of close ups including a Charms Creations mini heart (looks a little red in this photo but it is actually pink!)

Thanks for looking
