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.


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..
