Happy - PictureThis! mid month

Hi everyone! 
It's mid month challenge time for PictureThis!! 
It's another cool one.....'star bright' use stars in your layout. 
I instantly think boys when I think of stars, but I thought I would mix it up a little and just use it like any other embellishment. 
I love being a mum of boys and this photo of my youngest and I, is a fave at the mo. 

So I thought this would allow the opportunity to use stars in more then just a boyish tone and use a little pretty. 

On this layout I played with mini feathers, resin flowers (one of my fave embellies right now) 
And a real mix of chipboard and wood veneer stars. 

So much fun using so many cool embellishments and pops of colour. 
I really hope you get the chance to play along with this challenge. I can't wait to see all your layouts. 
Till next time, Em. Xx

Special guest designer- rainbow splendour

Hi everyone!! 
I'm so thrilled to be a Guest designer for Rainbow Splendour this month. 
Chloe releases the cutest kits, and I love that I have got to share her products in this way. 

So here is my layout using her latest kit, Sail Away.....

I had so much fun, playing with colour and this kit. 
At first I saw the vaneer boats and wondered how I could incorporate them without a water scene?? 
And then I thought they looked like the paper hats that you use to make when a kid, and so decided to use it as a hat/crown on my sons! 

Chloe also had cut files with her kit and so I cut a few flags out and added them to my layers. 

And I finished it all off with the felt bow and a speech bubble kit bit veneer. 

Hope this gives a little inspiration, and a HUGE thank you to Chloe for having me showcase one of her kits this month. 

Till next we meet, Em. Xx
