Dusty Attic/Scrapbook Boutique May Challenges

I surprised myself and found some inspiration to scrap a layout with pink! I found two challenges this month which inspired me to scrap a photo of myself - something I don't do very often.

I was inspired by the mood board at Dusty Attic. The first image of the face inspired me to scrap a photo of myself, and I really liked the 'Fabulous' and 'Glamorous' themes. I was inspired by the pink, gold and black palette, and the 'bling'.

I also used the pink and gold colour palette from the text in the mood board at Scrapbook Boutique -

And here is my layout-

I've used papers and ephemera from Pink Paislee 'C'Est La Vie'. I have to admit I wouldn't usually buy pink products if I was at the shops, but I've used products that I received from my subscription to Hip Kit Club. I guess that's the beauty of kit subscriptions is that you get to play and fall in love with products that you generally wouldn't think of.

I've used some Dusty Attic 'Industrial Barbed Stars' and 'Industrial Stars' chipboard which I painted black to contrast against the soft colour palette.

I've also used some My Mind's Eye 'My Story' brads, and some Kaisercraft Collectables from the 'Botanical Odyssey' range.


  1. This is beautiful Rachel and good job for scrapping yourself! I agree with the whole pink thing but with all the pink going around lately, I find I'm enjoying using it.
    I love the cluster you've got going on and the white space is a great balance.
    So glad you joined us at Scrapbook Boutique.
