March Challenges - Archiscraps, 123 Challenge Blog, Sketchy Boards, White With ONe and some news!

Hello There, welcome to my blog and welcome to March.. I love Autumn, the cooler nights and pleasant days..
I have a few challenges to put up, I was wondering if I should separate them, but I think I will put them all on this post so I hope it is not too long for you!

The March challenge for SKETCHY BOARDS ON FACEBOOK is an interesting one I thought.. and it is..
The sketch and board for inspiration..
I took the colors and followed the sketch.. and my layout..

some closer views..
A Charms heart, dies stamping..

The challenge for ARCHISCRAPS is to be inspired by this building and also to use gesso or texture paste and yellow..

I have created a card for my example..

 I have used texture paste through a stencil..

The challenge for THE 123 CHALLENGE BLOG is a very Autunmy one and it is to use..

Autumn tones for the colors, the word Memories, and some leaves on your layout.

And my layout..
Lots of leaf dies!

I have used some older Basic Grey papers for this layout.. and that photo is several years ago too..  just memories now..  My daughter in the autumn leaves ..

And... are you still with me!!?  I hope so..

The color for WHITE WITH ONE is a really pretty one that I enjoyed creating for ..... and it will be my last as a creative team member as I am stepping down as I have been on the team since October 2014 and I would like to knock on some new doors and see if they open for me!!

We are to create with...
Lavender herb.. I think this is such a pretty color..  and my layout..

some closer views..

dies and lace.
and flowers..

Enjoy Life.
 I have enjoyed my time on White With One and will probably join in with the challenges  in the future..

And remember what I said about knocking on doors? well I am so pleased to announce I am now on the Design Team for SCRAPMATTS!!!


 My goodness I need to pinch myself every now and then to make sure I am not dreaming!! The team looks amazing and I am so excited and I hope I can be of some inspiration when I use the wonderful chipboards and stencils that Scrapmatts have. An Aussie company too.. So my first design team for a Company.. wow!!

Thank you so much for getting to the end of this long post, but I thought it is better to put these challenges up now as the beginning of the month can be a busy time. I hope you can find time to join in with some of these challenges this month..
