SCRAP THE GIRLS & KRAFT+ July..

A very good day to you! I hope your day is going marvellously!

I have been enjoying the school holidays here and have not gotten in the car since sunday.. and lovin it! Cos that means some time for me to sit and scrap... aahhh!

The challenge for SCRAP THE GIRLS is a lovely sketch and I thought it was a good reason to use up some ribbons..

The Sketch..
Such a pretty sketch..

and my layout..

some closer views ..
 ribbons, butterflies and mixed media..

BeYOUtiful..
I will never tire of scrapping my DD year 7 Dinner photos.. she looked so beautiful.. I have used a Lemoncraft paper as my back ground that I got at the Craft show in Brisbane in June.. such pretty papers...

And I have created a "Mustard Explosion" for the KRAFT+ July challenge which is to use yellow paint on your layout.. well I have used it on my back ground..

The inspiration prompt..

 I saw a mish mash of stuff, things that seem to accumulate over time!!!

So I began my back ground with a layer of chipboard letters and buttons and chipboard.. and forgot in my excitement to take a photo.. and then covered the lot in gesso, and then in yellow paint..  I have used a photo of my DD when she was in her late teens.. she was known to NOT be a morning person, and I knew not to talk to her until she had her morning coffee.!!! She used to wear this T-Shirt and I HAD to get a photo of it and it has been sitting waiting to be scrapped.. I thought it suited this challenge well.. and my layout is a bit tongue in cheek.. because she was anything BUT sunshine in the morning!!!

some closer views.


Hello sunshine!
I tried to get the yellow paint to look like it was exploding from the middle of my page!! And yep.. gotta laugh at that shirt!! hehe!

Well thanks so much for popping by in your busy day, and thank you so very much for any comments, they do make me smile!!
