Today marks the start of a new month as well as a new season! If you're in Australia like me, today is the first day of Autumn! I must say that I am looking forward to the cooler Autumn weather and I do love all of the pretty Autumn colours!
The start of a new month also means new scrappy challenges to inspire us! Today I'm going to share a couple with you, starting off with the new challenge over at Scrap the Girls! This month we have a fun sketch that was designed by Kristine Davidson! Let's take a look...
And here is my layout inspired by this sketch...
I love that I get to spend my days hanging out with my beautiful baby girl! I am enjoying the change of pace that being a stay-at-home Mum brings. While my days are still busy and tiring, I feel really blessed to have lots of one-on-one time with my bub. I took this selfie of us on one of our days when we were just chilling at home, and I love it!
I started my page off by creating a watercolour look on my background using Distress Inks and plastic packaging (one of my favourite techniques at the moment!). I then added my paper layers using patterned papers from the Maggie Holmes Shine collection.
Here are some closeups of my embellishments...
I'm in love with the gold Thickers from this collection! Here you can also see some of the pretty D-lish Scraps embellies that I added (because what page of mine is complete without some?!), including the flair button, the arrow word tab and the resin diamond.
I fussy cut the blue heart and the 'shine' out of one of the cut apart sheets of patterned paper. This is a cost effective way of adding co-ordinated embellishments to your layout and making your patterned papers go further!
Under the right hand side of my photo I tucked a D-lish Scraps dip-dye tag, and then I finished it off with a Freckled Fawn glitter star on top!
If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll pop on over to the Scrap the Girls blog and take a look at the fabulous layouts that my fellow design team members have created with this sketch! We would love you to join us this month by creating a layout of your own based on this sketch! Link up your layouts on the Scrap the Girls blog by March 31st to have a chance of winning a prize from our generous sponsor Charms Creations!
Thank you for taking the time to visit and for your lovely comments also! I will be back later today with my design team layout for Stuck?! Sketches!
