ARTastic March Challenge

Monochromatic is the criteria for this months 
challenge at ARTastic. 
I chose black as my monochromatic colour and to keep 
the layout quite simple.
I bit of machine stitching, a few diet hearts raised with 
foam tape, a chipboard piece embossed and a title and 
a few words and that's it. Simple but effective. 

I chose this photo of Wes and Marcus because although you 
can't really see in the photo, it was taken in front of a 
country pub. 
The building in the inspiration picture reminded me of an old country pub. No we don't have a drinking problem but yes we 
do love visiting old pubs, they have so much character.

Sketchy Boards DT Layout - March 2019

Aw aren't they just the cutest???
This is my gorgeous daughter Leah and her boyfriend Tamas, 
oh and the star of our family.......Eric the cattle dog.

This month's challenge at Sketchy boards Challenge is to use 
this sketch as inspiration. Include some fussy cutting, add 
flowers and tags to your layout. 
I have fussy cut my tags and the leaves and foliage that I stamped and of course nearly every layout that I do has flowers on it.

Royal Blue - March Challenge layout - White with One

Good morning lovelies

It's March already....eeekkkk 
March is a busy month for us; birthday month, work conference 
and a weekend in our home town Healesville to visit wineries 
and go to the picnic races with our friends

So this new month means a new challenge at White with One.
Royal Blue is the colour to use with your white layout.

On this layout I have used some of the Stitched Rectangles - Australian Metal Cutting Dies (16576) from Paper Rose. 
I have used two different leaf dies from Paper Rose also. 

The rounded leaves are 
Leaf 1 (16784) and the pointy leaves are Leaf 2 (16787) 
The leaves are perfect to add to your flower cluster. 
Jump on the Paper Rose website if you would like to see 
what other dies they have available.

Hopefully we get to see your entries this month at White with One.

Scrap The Girls March Challenge Layout

Good morning
Today I'm sharing my layout that I have done for this months challenge at Scrap The Girls. The criteria is to be inspired 
by the films of the 90's.
I took inspiration from the movie 10 Things I hate about you. 
Of course I don't hate Leah one bit so I wrote 10 things I 
love about her. It's not often we write down things like this 
on our scrapbooking layouts, occasionally we journal about 
the holiday we've been on but I very rarely journal at all....something I must do more often. 
Another part in the movie was a timber swing scene, this is 
Leah in a shop in Portland Oregon so I thought this photo 
would be perfect to use.

Paper Rose - Beautiful Mandala

Hello there.

Those that know me well know that I don't do bright and 
colourful very well. So I've stepped out of my comfort zone 
to create these bright colourful cards using the 

It's not just bright and colourful that I'm not good with,  
painty inky hands give me a shortness of breath too. I promise I didn't wear rubber gloves to make these cards... hehehe
