Scrap the Boys DT call...

I have ben busy creating layout due for next month and nearly forgot about the design team call for, so we needed to do anything boy, with the word play and to use tape......
So after a very close call nearly missing the cut off date, this is what I created (the tape was masking tape which I just ran through the printer):

Purple Pumpkin...... Guest designer chance......

Over at Purple Pumpkin they are giving anyone a chance to become a guest designer, whether you use there products or not, which is great because I cant wait for there sale on Friday the 22nd July 7.30pm AEST, which will be my first purchase of there supper cute embellishments. All you have to do is create a layout, which got me motivated to find some mojo, and I am really happy with the results, all I need to complete the layout is a little button from

A little bit Vintage..... or so I hope.

I must admit vintage is not my thing, not that I don't want it to be, I just cant wrap my head around it. I understand the colours and how to work with sepia tones however I think its the photos themselves. Its not because I don't love old photos, I love them and cherish them, I really do! Maybe this is the reason I cant wrap my head around them, I just don't want to stuff up a perfect photo....

Hence I found July's monthly challenge pack from a struggle.....

Cosmo Cricket Odds& Ends, CC's colour picks, Maya Road Envelope,
Chipboard alpha, Ribbon, Trim.

Working Backwards!!!

So its been awhile since I have edited a photo which got me thinking that I should do that but what photo and then what would I do with that photo......

I am going to share with you my thought process, I had this beautiful paper, hot pink, black and white, really adult not for little baby girls and I really wanted to use it but if you know me I am always behind the camera so it cant be for a layout about me. Then I got thinking I have been with my partner for 10 years which has to be a milestone or something so I need to celebrate that in someway surely, so all I need a photo of the two of us, bonus I have one of those since my friend took some on my birthday this year, so that's off the list but I want to do a black and white photo and this is what you get..... me working backwards, and using hot pink on a photo with my partner ( who dare not complain that you cant use pink on a boys page, because he knows better).

Monthly challenges......

So I have been creating but it has been very slow and I do mean very slow. It being the end of the month a couple of things are due and as per lack of mojo I have just made it. The first one was the monthly challenge pack brought out by and I was very excited to create with this pack, it had enough stuff in it to do multiple pages and for both boy and girl. I ended up do 2 layout and then had to decide which one, so this is the one that made the final cut;

Bazzill Cardstock, Jillibean Soup PP & Tags, doily, Twine, Paint
Well I also did another layout with the same techniques and challenge pack lets hope I have made the right decision.
