Scrap Around The World- *Guest Designer- August*

Hello there.....

I have to say I'm SuPeR excited to be Guest Designer for the month of August over at
Scrap Around The World
                       So awesome to be amongst such awesome, creative talent!

 Eila Sandberg is the Challenge host this month and her mood board is simply stunning and along with the sketch designed by Jules McKenna -De Lumen, this is a must do challenge....take a look

I love the soft colours of the mood board, the soft peach and mint...the touch of gold, silver and bling!
 The sketch is so me....I LOVE circles on my layouts, so this was so up my alley!!!
  Make sure you have a look
                                               HERE at what the amazing Scrap Around The World design team created based on the above inspiration. Their work is amazing!!!

 Now I will show you what I came up with....
I flipped the sketch so it suited my photo a little better.
 The quote I have used so suits my layout of my DD, Samantha and her BF, Jake (aka Joliver to us!!). They had know each other thru high school and become really good friends. Then he wrote her a letter and things changed forever..... so sweet. 
                                                       (a look at the texture I've created)

The gold flower elements the pearl centre and the rosette ribbon are all from
and the
Stunning Chipboard is from
(Awesome Aussie Chippies)


1.   Be inspired by ANY ASPECT of our mood board 
(this could be just ONE aspect, many aspects or EVERY aspect!)  
Let us know what inspired you unless it is obvious!
2.  Use our sketch as your starting point 
(We need to SEE that you started off with our sketch - 
no need to follow it entirely but please it needs to be visible in your layout).

More Precious than Jewels......CSI#82


Been working on this case for a couple of days....
The colours for me are a challenge as I'm not the super girlie type...I would so grunge this up usually but had to stick to the colour scheme.
 {More Precious than Jewels}
this photo was taken back in January 2009.....I love the fact they are holding hands, it touches my heart every time I see this photo.
 I've used 2 Prima masks 
to create the background then I have used water colour paints to add just the right colours I needed for the scheme at CSI.

Products from Craft Queen:

So the CSI case #82  looked like this.... CSI has some amazing if you want to be pushed a little out of your comfort zone...pop on over and have a look, they also have a fantastic DT, who are very inspiring.
It's pretty cold here in Orange at the moment so this was a nice challenge to brighten my week
Thanks, so much for stopping by
