Scrap around the World

This is the first time I have entered Scrap around the World challenge and I was excited to see the theme Birthday and the pastel colours with a pop of gold glitter. I have seen a lot of paint chip craft on Pinterest and decided to gather some of my favourite colours from my local hardware store and punch out flowers and butterflies in different sizes and shapes to use on a scrapbook page. I did that about 3 months ago and was happy I could finally create and use this idea for this challenge. I added pattern paper and vellum ones from Dear Lizzy collection as well. As I glue each flower and butterfly it became hard to stop adding more and more. I was enjoying the process so much I really needed to step away from the layout before the whole 12 x 12 was covered!! Here are some details.

White with Gold

Oh how I love the Gold trend right now!! I just loved the challenge from "White with one" to use Gold.  I like Autumn with all it's beautiful leaves changing colours. So here is my leaves layout using two different gold cardboards, old piano music sheets and old dictionary paper sprayed with Heidi Swapp's gold color shine.

some of the detail.

Scrap the girls May challenge

The month of May has flown by and I haven't had much mojo so at the very last minute I have been creating. I wish I didn't create better under pressure but I just do most months. Online challenges have been great for me to push me to try new things. Scrap the girls has inspired me to create the May challenge. The theme was "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue." I leaned towards the blue theme and used some old piano sheet music as a layer and a new bow from D-lish scraps.
Thanks for the great challenges!!

Molossi Mood Board

Hello there here I am again sharing a recent online challenge with you. This time I was inspired to complete a layout for Molossi's first mood board. I was drawn to the photo of the door and the beautiful colours. I have wanted to create a full border of flowers and I really haven't used that many flowers on a layout before and it was a challenge but I am happy with the results. I have learnt much and now I will be doing more of these as soon as I buy more flowers!!

3 superheros in my life

Hi there, I am scrapping regularly again and loving it thanks to the encouragement of my friends and the many challenges online. I seem to have a theme sometimes and create a few layouts from that one brain storm. This time it was to do with comic books and I was searching for the right comic and came upon this fabric at spotlight. I am so happy that I found something I wanted to use on a layout. It might not stop there though because I have seen a laptop bag made out of the same fabric and it is fabulous!! So here is my layout with my 3 boys for
