Off the Rails - Crystal Castle

I love creating on black cardstock so the challenge at Off the Rails was one I had to have a go at.  We recently travelled with our caravan and one area we visited was around Byron Bay in NSW.  We came across The Crystal Castle privately owned botanical gardens and it was truly beautiful although it rained the whole time we were there.

Here's the mood board for the challenge.

The background was created using Dylusions paints with a wide brush before splattering WOW large glitter over the top.  The alpha is one of the Thickers range and the bow, flair and doily are from D-Lish Scraps.

Hip Kit Club - Memories

My latest layout for the Hip Kit Club featuring my great granddaughter, she's such a happy little thing and doesn't mind having her photo taken (guess she lives in the age where every moment can be captured and shared with family).

The challenge was in the form of a mood board which can be seen below. 
My inspiration was taken from the bottom left and centre photos.

Kraft + - Up Up & Away

My submission for the current August challenge at Kraft +, there's a great mood board and the challenge is to use tassels.  I made a couple of my own to attach to the hot air balloons and I had a border of them to use at the bottom of the photo.  This is the first page from our recent holiday to Birdsville in outback Queensland here in Australia.

Here's the Challenge

Here's my second submission to a challenge this month and its to Scrap the Girls .  My new great granddaughter features on this one and I took my inspiration from the mood board using the bottom teal colour.

The Mood Board is beautiful this month.

Pixels & Paper - Us Together

It's been so long since I blogged or entered a challenge and am happy to submit a layout to Pixels & Paper August Challenge.  This layout is of my granddaughter and new great granddaughter.  I've loved going back to a more clean lined style and my Hip Kit Club kit supplied me with everything on this page. 
My tiny product are those gorgeous tiny acrylic stars.
