Whats in the Bickie Tin - October.

 Hi There! How is your day going?

I have surprised myself by creating a layout today for the challenge over at

WHATS IN THE BICKIE TIN for the October inspiration. which is..

To use Orange and Black colors

layer your photo/s

add something fussy cut..

I didn't think I had anything orange, but as usual I found some papers and decided to do some stamping on the back ground in orange and black..

a couple of closer views..


a closer view of the stamping.. I used two different Kaisercraft stamps. And I used one photo but there are lots of layers under the photo..


The fussy cut element are these flowers from the papers which are Kaisercraft..



I love this photo of my Grandie and her burnt orange skirt went with the colors for this challenge.. And I like the pops of hot pink from the papers too..

Thanks so much for coming by, and for the lovely comments you leave me too, I appreciate each one.. I hope you have a wonderful day!!

Until next time..

Kraft+ - October challenge.. Crazy about chalk

 Hello October!! For me this is the second month of spring, for others it is Autumn..  It is pretty incredible that we are in October already..

The new challenge for KRAFT+ October  is up and it is a fabulous one again this month.. The graphics are amazing and it is..


Crazy about Chalk.. however if you do not have chalk in your stash, then being inspired by something on the mood board is perfectly acceptable.. wherever your inspiration takes you!! On a base of Kraft of course!!

You may like to check out the Design Team inspiration over on the KRAFT+ BLOG HERE!!!! 

and my layout..


I was inspired by the many  colors in the board and the chalk element was by using chalks to color the centre of these canvas flowers.. I simply used a cotton bud to rub the color on the centres of the flowers..

The flowers I got from a discount store.. I cant remember where I got these chalks from, they have been in my stash for a long tine!!


my layout.


I was also drawn to use this photo of my Grandie as she has her hand raised like the photo on the moodboard!!

I hope you get some time to join in with us this month.. you can pop your creation up on the 


Thanks for dropping by and thanks for the lovely comments too.. Each one is appreciated..

Until next time..
