Epic - Scrap the Boys

Happy March everyone,
This year is flying!!!
So we have a new challenge over at STB for this month and its a Dirty one!
Scrap a page with Dirt on it!
You can use a photo with dirt or use dirt on your layout, you choose.
Here is what I created.....
My boys are a little older now and don't get quite as dirty as they use to.
So I remembered a photo taken of my youngest when he went to work with his dad.
Both my boys came back filthy but Asha screamed dirt!!! LOL!!!
His eyes popped out from this dirt covered face, Just so adorable.

I love my chipboard and try to incorporate it in some way on every layout.
Its so very versatile, and adds layers which I just love to use.
A little mixed media and stamping helps add to layers, and I tried to choose ones that felt a little grubby?
I added a few glass cabochons to create a water feel for the bath.

Ah that sweet little face makes me smile of a time when my boys were younger,
and just being good ol boys!
I cant wait to see what you all create for this challenge, its certainly a fun one.
Till next we meet, Happy Scrapping, Em. xx

Fabulous - PictureThis!

Hi everyone and welcome to March!
New month = New challenges and this months challenge over at PictureThis! is really awesome.
Its a moodboard to be inspired by.
Here is my creation...... 
And here is what the moodboard looks like....

Its awesome hey?
So much to choose from on this board, but spots and gold screamed out to me.
I also thought it seemed a little glam, So I chose this selfie of me in my latest sunnies, lol.

I cant help myself but layer on my pages and this includes the mixed media.
Texture paste and stamping add so much to a page.

And check out this gorgeous Gold bow from Rainbow Splendour!!!
It just screams glam!!!

Treasure - PictureThis!

This month over at PicureThis we have a fun challenge of Tic Tac Toe.
You can choose any of the products, as long as they run in a row, be it up, down or horizontal.
I chose a horizontal line using enamel dots, layers and red.

I dedicated this months challenge to my Nan who left us 2 months ago.
And I really wanted to use this photo of her at the age of 18.
I love how young she is and the whole feel of the photo.

Nan quite liked the colour red so it was perfect to use the line with this colour in it.

And I had to throw plenty of 'roses' in to this layout as Nans name was Rose.
These flowers worked perfectly with the photo and colour.

I'm really happy with how this layout turned out, and I feel it has honoured Nana too.
I hope you get to have a play with this challenge, I look forward to seeing what products you choose for it.
Till next time, Em. Xx
