Here is the second page I created for my DT work at Scrapbook Boutique using Kaisercraft Little One. I decided to take the baby theme from a slightly different angle and go with baby elephants seeing as there was a lot of elephant embellishments with the collection and I have heaps of photos of the baby elephants at Melbourne Zoo!

This months challenge at Scrap Your Stash is to create a layout which includes items beginning with the letters P-H-O-T-O-S.
Here is my take using a photo of me and Eleanor when we fed the meerkats at Melbourne Zoo last in 2013. :
I dug deep into my stash and came up with the following items:
P = Paper frill from Doodlebug
H = Heart from Charms Creations
O = Opalettes embossing powder which I used to cover my chipboard
This month at Scrapbook Boutique I have been working with Kaisercraft Little One. Here is a boy layout I have created. More details on how I created this layout can be found on the Scrapbook Boutique blog here
Two layouts in 2 days! I discovered I'd forgotten to add the 2 cute flags from the D-Lish Scraps Just Add Paper kit to my layout I did yesterday for the Inspiration Board Challenge and as I had a few other things left over, some matching paper and a photo I hadn't used sitting on my desk I decided to use them up for the Mid Monthly Challenge over at Charms Creations.
I decided to choose the bottom row as I really wanted to journal about Robert and his unwillingness to sleep.

Yah, I've managed to get a challenge done this month. I loved the look of the July Inspiration Board at D-Lish Scraps and managed to get one of the Just Add Paper kits. It's a while since I last got one, as I had been on the Inspiration Board design team and had already done my sample before the kits came out. It was well worth the money and I have used most of it on this page.
The only things I have added were the white cardstock background and the grey view finder, as the white one in the kit was a bit lost on the white cardstock and the wood veneer hashtag. I created my background by stamping some corrugated cardboard and paint and then stencilled the chevrons. I painted the wood veneer title and the cork stars. They are actually navy blue but look black in these photos.
Here are a couple of close ups:
And here is the inspiration board:
I was inspired by the stars, the chevrons and the view finders and of course the colours.

I was inspired by the colours and by the lace and pearls.
I used the lovely Kaisercraft Little One Collection and teamed it up with some Dusty Attic chipboard and some Ranger Liquid Pearls. I also used my Gelatoes to colour my chipboard after gessoed it, and to create a pale mint background for my layout. A couple of close ups:
Hope this inspires you to have a go at the challenge.
I've been a bit slack with my blogging recently. Last month at Scrapbook Boutique I got to work with Scrap Yard by Kaisercraft and some wonderful chipboard and rusting powder from Dusty Attic. Here are the layouts I created with them.
