Delightful - layout for Scrap the Girls

The March challenge for Scrap the Girls is a sketch. Here it is.

Now normally I would look at it and think no, too many flowers but the next photo I had prepared to scrap just happened to be me amongst a large flowery bush on Sentosa Island. Therefore, I took up the challenge.

Here is my layout. I have used some new and old products. I have used some new embroidery floss to create the circle and a new Prima Bloom spray on the old Creative Memories background paper.

I've used a mix of hand made flowers and also some tiny flowers and some Prima leaves.

Thanks for looking. 

Peace and Love card - challenge at Unstampabelles

Unstampabelles challenge for March 2015 is:

Harmony or/and Peace ­- there are many symbols of harmony or peace but the dove is one of the most recognizable. Create anything around the theme of Harmony and/or Peace.

The twist is to incorporate flight into your article

Here is the card I made for it.

I chose to use blue and white for my colour scheme as I find those colours calming and soothing.
I cut a feather out of white vellum freehand. I scored up the middle of it to give it a little definition. Then I cut at a diagonal along each side to create the effect of a bird's feather. This is the flight element to satisfy the twist.

I added the sentiment in different letter and word stickers.

Why not join in this month at Unstampabelles? You just might win! We'd love to see your interpretation of our theme.

Layout for CSI #156 Dinner in Boat Quay

I've joined in with CSI #156 today.

I created the background with mists using a mask I made with my glue gun.
Evidence is:
text print (on alphas, hard to see), cursive font,
leaves, flowers, mixed media background and triangles
Testimony, I used a journalling stamp spot.

Here's my layout.

CUCC39 - Create a layout that tells a story

Our Night Out for CUCC39.

For those of you who don't know, I have stepped down from the Soul Scrappers' Design Team. I was on it for two years creating the Cooking Up Creations challenge. Shazza has taken over my next two challenges and she is currently looking for someone from the Soul site to take my place.

Anyhoo, I had created this layout for it so I entered it.

We found a really fabulous cafe in Singapore which had 600 board games you could play and a set menu dinner, all for a set low price.  It was just perfect for a family night out walking distance from our Hotel.

Zoo layout for Scrapbook challenges

Today I've created a page for Scrapbook Challenges Sketch #428.

Here is my layout.

Here is the sketch. I flipped my layout because of the photos. I wanted the people looking into the page, not off the edge of it.

I've used mostly Basic Grey's Capture collection.

Rose Thank You card

ARTastic has a colour challenge this month featuring this image by Josh Miels. Beautiful, isn't it.

I was drawn to the lovely rose.  I've  used an embossing folder on pink cardstock that features gorgeous roses like the one in the image. I have added all the other colours in some way.

A colour challenge - use a minimum of three of these colours and a wild animal photo (or two or three !!)
