A very good day to you! I hope your day is going wonderfully well!

I have finally created a layout for this months challenge for KRAFT + after just scratching my head for weeks.. what a doozie of a challenge this month!!! It is..
Use this picture for inspiration and our creativity!! I searched and searched for something..... anything.... but..  i got nothing...... until my son had a recent birthday and I put up an older photo of him in one of his favorite shirts.... and then.....  BINGO!! His shirt has a lot going on and it just reminded me of this picture.. there sure is a lot going on...and it has the appearance of being LOUD!! as well as a  mish mash of color and textures...  and so i sat and created...


some closer views..

 lots going on on the back ground.. and cut out photo too..


That is one fabulously colorful shirt!! hehe! So that is what I have created using the picture and my creativity!! I kinda let lose a bit!!!  hehe!! Thanks for a great challenge KRAFT +, it sure was a challenge!!!!

Thanks for coming by, and thank you too for any comments you leave me... enjoy the rest of your day!!

Hello there,
I hope this finds you well..  I have been busy this last week with my Dad having been in hospital, thankfully he is home again now.. but going out to the hospital several days as well as the usual things sure does make the week fly by!

I have to put up my example for the May challenge for ARCHISCRAPS which is to use this photo for inspiration as well as layering and something reflective..

The inspiration..

and my card.. I have layers and I have sequins for something reflective.. The kaisercraft die I have used reminded me of the roof structure of the building, and I have used Scrapmatts chipboard sentiment and chain circle..

And today I had a lovely time sitting and scrapping for this months challenge for MORE THAN WORDS May..
which is..
to use the word MOMENT and clocks on your layout..
I decided to use a photo I found of my Son in his year 12 school photo.. I cant believe this was taken in 2002..  Where do the years go??

some closer views..

Lots of layers, clocks and the word moment..

 The chipboard was covered with black gesso then some ink from a stamp pad added for an aged look.

I had a lot of fun creating the back ground with ripped papers, die cuts, stamping and clock cut outs..  I needed some scrap time so thank you to MORE THAN WORDS for a great challenge this month..

Thanks so much for coming by, and I do appreciate the comments you leave me too..

Hi there,
Ok I am just having a bit of trouble acknowledging that it is in fact MAY!! Everywhere I look it says the 1st of May today...  My computer, my phone.. just my brain is taking time to catch up!!! So while I am adjusting, I thought I had better put up a couple of the challenges I design for...... yes for MAY!!!

The challenge for SKETCHY BOARDS ON FACEBOOK is in interesting one..

The board.. for inspiration..
and the sketch for inspiration..

  A fabulous Page Maps one..
Well this month I was inspired by the colors in the door in the board and I have created a card, you can create anything for this challenge.. just tell us how you were inspired..

and my card..
I have used older Kaisercraft papers for this card..

And the challenge for the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG is one we all had fun creating for.. It may lend itself to male layouts, but I still did a layout with my daughter in it.. and it is..
To use the color grey, the word GREAT and the technique of grunge!!

and some closer views of my layout..

Special moments make great memories..
I had some fun creating the back ground for this, the chipboard pieces are Scrapmatts, the dies and stamps are Kaisercraft and the flowers are Prima. (A bit of warp happening with my title due to the mixed media!!!)

There you go,  two challenges to inspire your scrapping this month! I hope your day has been great!!
 Thanks for coming by, and thanks so much for the lovely comments too..
and... Happy May!
