Friends by choice

I love having a week off... I get to spend some time to create just for me ....

This is a fun layout for the kids and also happens to team up some favourite colours...... any time I use any form or orange I really struggle... but I was happy with how the Pumpkin Pie went together with the Pool Party and the Pear Pizzazz ... I'm really enjoying Pear Pizzazz... I hope you are too.






To help me overcome my fear of orange, I used this color combination from CAS - Colours & Sketches:



Except of course I used Pear Pizzazz ... the beautiful Pear Pizzazz.


I teamed up this color combination with this sketch inspiration from Scrapbook Challenges:

Well... a kind of sideways version of the sketch... which just adds to the fun.... if you lay down and squint at the screen you'll see it. ;)

Have some fun with one or both of these challenges, and as always share the results with me... I love seeing your creations.

Horsing Around........ Colour & Sketch Challenge

I'm really enjoying the new colour range in the new catalogue... here is a layout that I did last night ....






Hope you enjoy this project. I used this color combination: 





I teamed up this color combination with this sketch inspiration:





I made a few changes just to make it my own, as the project seemed to take on its own life, you know how it is, but I just love how starting with a sketch gives you the basic form of a project which just needs some of your own creative flavours added... this is such a great starting point on the days when you just feel a bit creatively challenged ...... have a go at creating something with this color combination or this sketch... or both......and share it with me... I'd love to see what you create.


Oh and hey... did you know the July stamp of the month set is butterflies... don't you just love how elegant butterfly images are?  You can click on the image below to go to see the set at my online store if you would like some more detail:
