White.. With 1 Challenge (radiant orchid) Oct 2014

This one had me stumped for quite a few days! .. and I set the colour for the challenge - it was all my own doing!

Purple is not usually a colour I work with so it took a lot of thinking and agonising rather than just jumping in. A real challenge for sure.

I dont have much of a stash of anything purple (my girl is a pink and orange fan - I prefer red).
So the choices were very limited on what I had to use so I ended up using some TA Glimmer Mist in
'Pashmina' to have a play on the spotty BB white cardstock background. Just applied it using an eye dropper in big amounts and 'chased' the ink around the page with a straw being careful not to breathe it on or spit on the layout! It came out brilliantly!.

Also included bits & pieces from all over the place including a white paper ball swizzle stick from e2c earlier this year! .. I handmade the dotty flair button using some fabric I had and some sheer organza type netting (think it was from a HS collection YEARS AGO!) was bundled up behind the button using helmar 450 and held in place with a peg until it set.
The bow was made using some d-lish glitter washi tape and just cut & folded into a bow. The clouds are from Studio Calico (I think).

Have you checked out what the rest of the WW1 design team did this month? ..
Lots of different and gorgeous inspiration to be seen!
Thanks for looking :)

Delish Scraps .. September Challenge

This one came together very quickly and focused on my awesome daughter 'pussycat'.
I really enjoyed this layout as it uses some gorgeous colour's that are so versatile on any girly layout. 

Plenty of great d-lish goodies used out of the  'pink lemonade' Just Add Paper kit. 
Always a good buy for $10.

Items used in the kit were:
  • Glitter Pink Bow
  • 2 journalling Spots
  • 3 hot pink flowers
  • 2 small resin apricot flowers
  • washi was used as the word 'love' in the tag down the bottom and on the flag at the top
  • A tie was made using the pink string on the flag also 
  • There is also a line of the light pink bling to the left of the page.
  • Yellow chevron bag under the photo. 

Other d-lish items used include:
Yellow resin rose
Small pink resin roses 

And this was the inspiration board for the month! ..

White.. With 1 September Challenge ( Marshmallow)

I had been wanting to do a layout on my daughter and how much she has changed in her first 7 years. The white .. with 1 (Marshmallow) challenge colour was the perfect one to dedicate this to and this this layout came together rather quickly!


I decided to showcase images of her over the past 7 years in a flip album so I finally got a chance to use some of the simple stories 'snap' photo flips to make it happen. I had alot of trouble finding them and even tried making my own using clear glassinine bags but they didnt look right! Eventually I found them here and the had them in stock!  yes!! Time was running out to get this layout done for the CT reveal blog post!

As yet, the journalling is still undone. I’m not sure what I actually want to write but it may end up just being some simple words about no matter how much she changes 2 things will always be the same 1) she will always have the most beautiful eyes and 2) she will always be loved by us. It still seems to be missing something though ..

That’s my Marshmallow challenge layout for September at White .. with 1 completed!  .. have you started on yours as yet ?   there are 4 prizes up for grabs from our generous sponsors!

You can see the rest of the ww1 creative teams layouts here .

Have a fabulous September! and thanks for dropping by :)
