D-Lish Scraps April Challenge.

So Im on a roll lately with my scrapbooking, and challenge entries. I'm really loving the inspiration and how my pages are turning out.

This was a mood board challenge, I just loved the gold feathers and that raspberry colour. I'm a Stampin' Up demo, and I interpreted that as rich razzleberry, so that is what I used.
When I saw this mood board I knew I wanted to use a recent pic I had of myself. This board was very feminine  to me, and having 2 boys, well 3 if you include the hubby, I don't often scrap in these colours, and I thought it was time I added a pic of myself to my album this year. I wanted to use my feather dies and cut some out of gold glitter paper. I saw that much, the rest of the layout came together as I went.

The backround is my favourite. I misted a Kaiser stencil I have, but I focused the mist on the centre so the colour got lighter as it sprayed out. I like that it gives it a look of matting the photo.
  I love the gold, but I also wanted to add a touch of the razzelberry. So I added splatters first, then decided to colour the wood veneer butterflies as well. It gives it just enough colour.
Happy scrapping

Scrap the Boys april Challenge

I am really enjoying this months challenges I have found so far. Having 2 boys, I love the scrap the boys challenge a lot. I can always find inspiration there.
This month was a mood board challenge.
This mood board made me think of the beach, and I had the most perfect picture in mind.
When I saw this mood board this pattern paper came to mind. I really wanted to use it, but I didn't want to alter it too much or distract from it. It was too perfect. So I decided to layer embellishments, definantly a lot more then I normally do, but like I said I didn't want to take too much away from the water look of the paper, and I wasn't really sure what else to add. So this is what I ended up with.

Happy Scrapping

Hoppy Easter....

Yes , I was that corny. I did In fact say hoppy easter just now- I even put it as the title on my easter project life layout :)

For some reason every time I do a celebration layout, a birthday or Xmas etc, I never like the way it turns out. Still haven't figured out what goes wrong hahaha, but I'm happy with this. 
I did this layout for the Jot magazine mood board.  

This mood board made me thing of Easter. So that's where I went with my layout. No navy but lots of pink and green and florals. Thanks for looking.

Happy scrapping
