Jot mood board for May

Last upload for the night.
I finished my jot mood board inspired layout just now. I keep forgetting it's so late in the month. I think I completed 4 challenges today, I totally forgot it was the last day of the month lol.
So here is my layout- it's a project life LO.

Sassy scrapper may challenge

You know when you start a page and without realising it, it develops into something totally different.
That's what happened here lol. I started out with the sassy mood board in mind
Now you will notice the lack of pink in my layout. 

I loved the blues and especially that quote. And to me this quote is what made me think of this picture of my 7 yo.
My boy has autism and has only just overcome his anxiety of slides. That is why I love this pic so much. The fun he is having in the face of something that scared him so much it was impossible for him to go near. 
So that was how I drew my inspiration from this page. Hope you like it.

White with 1 May challenge.

White with 1 would have to be one of my favourite challenges :)
This month was no different with this fabulous colour.
Now with 2 boys and a man child husband, I don't use feminine colours much. But I took the plunge and gave it a go- I had nothing in the way of embellishments in this colour either lol.
But I love my multimedia, so out came the modelling past and distress stains. I recently acquired picked raspberry so it was perfect. I even managed to use a pic of myself and my 2 boys. I turned it black and white and was very happy with the way it came together.
Thanks for looking

Deer and fawn may challenge

This months challenge over on the Deer & Fawn blog was to make at least 2 of your own project life cards.
I started with my photos then filled the spaces with blank 3x4 and 4x6 cards and went to work.
It was a lot of fun making my own, I used my mists and stamps and my new fave distress stains (OMG, love these!) and this is what I came up with...
Go check out the blog, it's an awesome shop as well. :)
Thanks for looking and happy scrapping.

Scrap the boys challenge

So every month I find all the scrap book challenges I can and put them in a file on my computer. Then I TRY and enter as many as I can.
Mostly this helps get my mojo flowing. 
This is one of my fave. With 2 boys and a childlike hubby, it's always right up my alley.
This was the challenge this month.
Create a page inspired by this image.

Well as soon as I saw it I loved the tire tread in the backround, and I saw this over a pop of red gelato.
So that was exactly where I started lol. 

Then I remembered I had some kaisercraft garage days embellies. And figured these suited the pic perfectly.

I'm really pleased with how this turned out. 
Ever get a page in mind and it just comes together exactly how you imagined it?

Happy scrapping
