MORE THAN WORDS - July Main Challenge .

Hello there,
Thanks so much for dropping on by.. I hope things with you are doing well..

I am just popping up my layout that I created for this months challenge over at
MORE THAN WORDS  which is
 The word inspiration is Goodbye and the creative challenge is Monochromatic..  Well I straight away thought about my dear little doggie Cindy who we had to say goodbye to last year.. She was a fabulous little dog, quite sassy for her size. She got a lump on her tummy and we had that removed but more lumps came pretty quickly, and we had to made a decision.. keep getting surgeries or....... So we got her to 15 years old and then we had to say goodbye.. a very hard day and many tears have been shed since.. So I thought I would do a layout to remember her by.. not as easy as I thought.. I had to stop a few times to clear my eyes.. but I am glad I persevered.. and my layout...

a couple of closer views..

 


Yes Dogs leave paw prints on our hearts.. 

 

my journalling..





This was the last photo I took of Cindy... I miss that face.....
I have used a really old Kaisercraft paper range..

Thanks MORE THAN WORDS for a challenge that got me creating a layout about my little doggie Cindy (as hard as it was..)

Thanks for coming by, and thanks to those who leave me comments.. I do appreciate each one..

Until next time..
take care...

123 CHALLENGE BLOG- July.Challenge..

Hello there!
Thanks for coming by! How is life on your part of the world? I do hope you are keeping well and safe..  Australia is not out of the woods yet with this virus, and I really hope it can be contained soon and things can be a bit more relaxed...  but... I have to share my inspiration for this months challenge over on the 123 SCRAPBOOKING CHALLENGE ON FACEBOOK which has just had a bit of a name change but still the challenge it was.. and this month it is..

No photo description available.  To use the one sketch as inspiration, the two words (either as part of your title, journalling or inspiration) and the three colors as the main colors.. other colors are allowed but the three are to be easily seen...
so my layout..

some closer views.

 


 


and my layout..


I have used an older photo of my family at Christmas time.. but this title would be perfect for the season of stay at home that we have experienced lately..


You can pop over to the FACEBOOK PAGE HERE!!! to check out more inspiration and pop your layout up there too..


Well thanks to those who take a minute to leave a little comment, they are all appreciated..
take care of yourself..

and until next time..

WHITE WITH ONE JUNE CHALLENGES

Hello there,
thanks for dropping by today.. I hope your day is going well... After it being 3 degrees here this morning, the day has warmed up and looks quite inviting.. perhaps I shall go out and do some gardening later!!

But first.. I have some layouts to share from the Challenges for WHITE WITH ONE , I have created a layout for the monthly challenge as well as for the CyberCrop Challenges happening on Facebook...
so my layout for the monthly challenge first...

and it is..

   White on white...  Well I love white on white.. I think the trick is to use texture.. so here are a couple of closer views..




 

I have used a few die cuts and some stencilling on the back ground to try and get texture happening..

 

I lifted the butterfly wings up to add some interest.

so much love..



I have edited my photo to a soft black and white.. I love this photo of my Mum putting a little kiss on my Grand daughters forehead.. so precious...


The next layout I would like to share is Challenge One from the CyberCrop..
Which was to use Brendas layout as a sketch, and use Purple as the main color..
You can see this challenge On Facebook HERE!!!! 

My layout..  a couple of closer views..

 

I have fussy cut two butterflies and added glitter glue for sparkle!!!

 

Cherish every day.


I have a smattering of water color paint and stencilling on the back ground.. I have used 3 patterned papers, fussy cut butterflies, and purple as main color..

Challenge Two.. On Facebook Here!!!! 

Is to use your scraps, white cardstock, color of my choice, 2 flower clusters, some pearls/sequins/enamel dots and 4 patterned papers in color choice..

closer views

 



I have used some pearls and enamel dots.. I have used a golden yellow color to match my photo..

 

Shine on



I love this photo of my Grand daughter who was going to her first Wiggle concert! I love those fingers as she was doing the 'wiggle wiggle' !!!


Third Challenge On Facebook Here!!!  

To use at least 3 photos, be inspired by the back ground color in the photos and use that as the second color, use an embellishment that does not go with the theme of the layout, use a doiley and/or mixed media..

closer views..

 

I have used a compass die cut on my page.. (a travel theme embellishment. ) 

 

I have used mixed media and the greens were inspired by my photos.

Beautiful..



I was also inspired by the gum trees in the back ground of my photos so used die cut gum leaves..


well thanks for coming by and for looking at my layouts.. 
Thanks White with One for fabulous challenges that gave me inspiration to create this week!!

Thanks for the lovely comments you leave.. I appreciate each one..

until next time.. 
take care..
