123 Challenge November

This month's criteria at 123 Challenge blog is 

Colour: Copper
Word: Good
Technique: Stars

I have to admit I was a bit daunted by the 'copper' colour. I ended up making a copper colour background with some gold spray mist over brown cardstock.

Scrap The Boys November Challenge

The challenge this month at Scrap the Boys is 

'Showing the Softer Side of your boy'.

I absolutely love this photo of my 2 boys, and this was the perfect challenge prompt for it.

This photo was taken by the lovely Sandy from Memory Bank Photography. You can see more of her work here.


D'Lish Scraps November Inspiration Board Challenge

The inspiration board at D'Lish Scraps this month is called

 "Coral Glitz"

It's just so, so pretty.

Here is my layout inspired by this board

Show Us Your Stuff November Challenge

This month's challenge over at Show Us Your Stuff  is so intriguing, so much inspiration on the one challenge!

Choose Your Own Scrap Adventure

I've used the word LOVE; a butterfly embellishment; stamping and a 5x7 photo.

My handmade item is a chevron from Charm's Creations, and a flair from Flutterby Designs.

I found a piece of paper that matched my photo perfectly (Webster's Pages Strawberry Fields - Field of Gold). The boys are actually sitting in a field of long grass and that matched the background paper.

The photo was taken on a recent family shoot with the lovely Sandy from Memory Bank Photography. You can see more of her work on her blog.

Black With 2 November Challenge

This month over at Black With 2 the challenge has such a great colour combination - 

Tangerine and Blue

This is the mood board and sketch - the journaling word this month is ESCAPE.

And here is my layout. I really enjoyed putting this page together - I've had this photo on my desk for a while just waiting to be scrapped, and now I've found the perfect inspiration for it.

Anna'a Craft Cupboard November Sketch

The sketch for the Anna'a Craft Cupboard November challenge looks like this

And this is the layout I came up with. These are some gorgeous flowers growing in my Mum's garden.

I love the pink and green palette to reflect the colours of the flowers.

White ...with 1 November Challenge

This month's challenge at White ...With 1 is 

white ... with FREESIA.

I just love how the yellow tones just put a bit of sunshine in my soul, so that's what I thought I would put down on my page.

Mei Li Paperie October Inspired By... Challenge

Today I am joining in at the Mei Li Paperie 

Each month's challenge is of an image to inspire a layout. 
The October inspiration image looks like this

So much going on in this image!

And this is the layout I came up with 

I went with the circles as my design, and used the orange, yellow, sand and blue palette.

I think my layout is so bright and 'summery'. 
I love these colours!
