Some more July challenge entries
I was very disappointed to see that the Challenge Me Happy blog is ending, I have played along for a few months and really enjoyed the challenges and inspiration there! Their final challenge is 'Anything goes' and to show your best work - so I tried hard to create a layout good enough for a finale. I started off with the little mirror I had made and hoarded for the right layout, along with the matching bling and it grew from there. I chose this gorgeous photo of my daughter and her gym friends hanging out after a competition, and I love the soft lighting of the moon and tried to capture it in tones of silver, purple and blue.
To make this layout I used Tim Holtz background paper, DCWVs Once upon a time stack, Kaisercraft mirror stamp with Teresa Collins silver paper, Bella Oriental paper pad (dragonflies), Graphic 45s Nutcracker Sweet Sugar Plum fairy, WOW chipboard flourishes painted silver, Scrapmatts chipboard window mask, Prima resist canvas key, bling and memories chipboard, and a gorgeous Inkido silver flower (from the harmony blue set) which I won last month!
This next layout is for a couple of challenges - the A2Z Scraplets challenge - the theme is to use the quote 'days like this' on your page. Although I have a few of their chipboard products, I didnt have any to go with the theme! I used the quote in my journalling, along with an older photo from 2010 I have been holding onto. I am also entering this layout into the Berry71Bleu challenge for July - anything goes, as well as Scrap your story #21 - My daughter actually made the DIY embellishment on this layout and gave it to me (as a set) on mothers day. She carefully ruled the frame, cut it out and added a hand cut heart and message (laugh). I thought it was very cute, and so appropriate for the layout of her drawing!
To make this layout I used Kaisercraft Magic Happens background paper, Tildas 'Garden party' papers, Francheville washi tapes and fussy cut pencils along with Prima chipboards.
