Scrap Around The World- January 2014, Challenge 9- Soft & Beachy Mood Board Hosted by ME!!!

Hello all and welcome to my first post for 2014 :)

I had the pleasure of creating the Mood Board for the FIRST Scrap Around The World challenge for
I decided since here in Australia it is Summer to go with a Beachy feeling Mood Board.
(thought it might make scrappers in colder climates feel a little warmer as well?!)

Isn't it PRETTY !!!!?
We have some amazing prizes YET AGAIN this month & we hope 
that many of you will be able to participate in our January challenge!
I will tell you more a little later in this post about the prizes!

As you will see we now offer a mood board ONLY, without a sketch, in order
 to assist you in combining our challenge with a sketch challenge if you want :)

Below is what I created......

 I've used the Nautical Designs 03, Ornate Frames 17 and Assorted Words 15 from 
 I have also used the negative parts of the chipboard pieces and texture paste to create my background, (if you look to the right of my photo you will see the lighthouse and above the photo you can see the wheel but it actually looks like a sun. The starfish scattered around are also created using the negative!) I was very pleased with how these turned out.
The flowers, stamp and the woven ribbon are from CRAFT QUEEN

I have scrapped this photo before but it is one of my fav's from a holiday we took back in 2009 and I have no problems with recycling!!!
