Deer & Fawn Designs - Vietnam

At Deer & Fawn Designs this month they have a colour challenge, scrap with Orange and as it's one I don't do all that often thought I'd give it a go. The link to the website follows:

Here's my layout.

and a couple of close-ups. 

I'm loving Charms Creations embellishments and you can certainly find one that suits your layout.  The link to the shop is http://ourbrightstarsandus.typepad.com/

I've also used pieces from another great etsy store in D-Lish Scraps.   The link is d-lishscraps.openstores.com.au

The wood veneer is from my stash.

Scrap the Boys - They must be Boys

I truly loved the sketch by Rikki at Scrap the Boys  this month.  It's so versatile for not only boys but any other subject so thank you Rikki Graziani.

Once again I've used some Charms Creations  'Do it Youself' chevrons, stamped with a Kaisercraft stamp, you'll also see a Heavenly Heart here too.  The rest is patterned paper 'collectables and stamp from the Mister Fox collection at Kaisercraft.

Off the Rails - Just a Little Randomness

I created this layout because the colours of the mood board at Off the Rails are so striking and one of my favourite combinations.  
Once again I've kept it simple and on black - I'm drawn to this background at the moment.

I absolutely love Charms Creations  embellishments and can't get enough of them for my stash.  I cut the stars and doily from glitter paper and the tiny ones are from a hand punch.

D-Lish Scraps - Be Free

I love the colours from the challenge at D-Lish Scraps this month and the kit was full of beautiful goodies.  I've decided to keep it clean and simple on a black background.

Three layouts and three cards made for challenges at The Scrap Suite (part of D-Lish Scraps facebook pages).

Number One

I used some screws, glue bottle caps and some patterned plastic sheet I found in the hubby's shed. 

Number Two

I loved the bright colours from the mood photo. 

Number Three

I included two males, my son and his youngest son. 

Number Four

Thanks for staying for this rather long post.

Anna's Craft Cupboard - You & Me

I just loved the sketch at Anna's Craft Cupboard this month and I used the challenge to play with my new Cocoa Vanilla Studio collection.  I even used part of the strip on the bottom of the page because it suited what I wanted to use in the journaling. Here it is!

and now the sketch. 


Kraft + - Wish Upon a Star

Here's my first for the month, it's for another great challenge at  Kraft + this month, I've included the sketch below my page.

and now for the challenge sketch

 Isn't it a beauty?

Cocoa Vanilla

I was so lucky to have a win over at Cocoa Vanilla and here's my prize.  I am so grateful to Zoe because her collections are beautiful and the quality is excellent.  There is also a fabulous variety of embellishments so why not visit and take a peek at the collections and find a stockist near you....
