Good day to you wherever you are! It is friday evening here, and another week seems to have gone by oh so quickly... I have a few things to share with you..
The November challenge for SCRAP AROUND THE WORLD
grabbed my attention this month.. perhaps it was the color, or perhaps it was the quote?? I am not too sure, however I did sit and create using the colors in the mood board, the quote and the sketch for inspiration..
and my layout...
Keep looking up..
I hope you can see where I got my inspiration for this layout from!! lots of color, I have used the quote and the sketch.. and hand made flowers...
The challenge over at THE ORANGE PAPERIE & CO
is to use the sketch and use either die cuts or fussy cutting.. did someone say fussy cutting!!!?? You dont have to ask me twice!! hehe.!!!
and my layout... and I did some fussy cutting...
and a closer view of the fussy cutting..
Cut and layered up with foam tape.. lots of stamping too...
Now normally I would not do something like I am about to do, however I just feel I should.. I know we are a community of scrappers and sometimes I feel like we are a large family.. When someone is hurting or going through a tough time, we all try to encourage them.. And so the other day when I was over at Natalie's blog HAPPY DAKS
(she is going through chemo for Ovarian cancer) and she mentioned she would like some inspiration layouts so she can look at and get some encouragement from.. Her post is HERE
and her health journey is HERE
. Please pop over and have a read and I think you will be touched by her courage and honesty and brave battle against the effects of the chemo.. Could I ask you to create a little page, she has asked for an A4 size and send it to her.. Her address is on the post.. There are lots of things you could do, and many wonderful quotes around.. Have a play with mixed media or something, but I would love to inundate her mail box with boxes of layouts of love and encouragement.. Now I would not ask you to do something that I have not already done and so here is my little layout.. A4 size and a picture and quote I got off google images printed on white cardstock..
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain...
I will be wrapping this up and posting it off next week.. Would really love it if you could create something too.. (Natalie does not (hopefully) know I have put this on my blog, not sure if she comes by here..) Thanks so much if you can help..
Thanks for coming by, Have a fabulous weekend.. and thanks for your comments too.. they make my day!
