MORE THAN WORDS : October - Costume and Black Background.

Hello there,
So lovely you have come by.. I hope your day has been a good one..  It has been a hot day here for me.. We did have some beautiful rain last weekend, so perhaps we will get some more soon!!

I was inspired by this months challenge over at MORE THAN WORDS to create using this criteria..

 Well I do not do spooky, but I found a photo of my DD and my GD who had dressed up for their playgroup and I just had to scrap this moment!!

I havent done a messy back ground in sooo long so I got some paper strips and some old paper die cuts and other stuff that was sitting on my desk and stuck them on my back ground.. all sorts of things I used!! there was no reason, other then to add some texture.. then I sprayed with yellow mist, and I added some stencilling.. and I even took a photo before I covered it up with my photo!!

Then I got my photo and put layers under that and I cut lots of stars in black and gold..

and my super heroes!!

I had lots of fun creating this page.. I had no idea how it would end up.. and I am happy with the end result!!

Thanks MORE THAN WORDS for a fabulous challenge this month..

Thanks for visiting, and thanks for the lovely comments you leave me too.. I appreciate each one..

Take care..

until next time..

Hello there,
How is your day going? Well I hope.. At the moment it feels like Summer is knocking on the door and not giving us some Spring.. so good weather to stay indoors and create..

My first share is the challenge for the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG which is another fabulous one..

 to use the three colors, (you can use other colors but these 3 need to be seen mostly) use the words or be inspired by them, and use the sketch..
When I printed off the challenge my teal came out a little differently (oops!!) but thats ok..

some closer views..

I loved the banner on the sketch..

I have used some rub-on alphas for my words.. and this Kaisercraft range suited the colors.

Have Strength.

My daughter inspires me with her strength, so I had to use a photo of her.. You can add your layout over on the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG FACEBOOK PAGE  .

I would also like to share a layout I have created for the Sketch Challenge for Kaisercraft which looks like..

 I have rotated the sketch once anti-clockwise to suit the photo I have used.. I have used the Rosabella paper range, a Kaisercraft stencil, and the Kaisercraft vine die for some leaves..

some closer views..

Some fussy cutting of flowers, and I added a little button to the string on the tags..

Some liquid pearl drops in black for the center of the flowers, with some glitter glue to add some sparkle!!


I love this photo of my youngest in the afternoon sunshine..  so happy to scrap it with this sketch..
You can see the other layouts over on the KAISERCRAFT FACEBOOK ALBUM ..

Thanks so much for dropping by, I do appreciate your visit and all the comments you leave me to read too..

Until next time..

Kraft+ October - Photo Inspiration..

Hello there,
Welcome to October!! and welcome to the new challenge that has been put up for KRAFT+ and it is an another fabulous one.. lots of color to inspire you.. and it is..

 How does this inspire you? I was inspired by all the pots going into the entrance of the house.. and how about that door? How impressive is that??!!
So I had this photo of my Grandie exploring near my front door, and as I have lots of pot plants, I have used this photo.. I also picked up on the colors as well as the greenery and popped some die cut greenery around my page..

some closer views..

I have used some really old stickers on my page..

Such a cute photo of my little girl toddling along!!
