layouts to share...

A couple of weekends ago, I sat down and created 13 layouts and an otp...all just for the heck of it. I came across the Simply Obsessed's "SO's Got Talent" challenge and thought I'd give it a go. Mind you, the challenge had been running for a month and I managed to create all nine projects in two days! Nothing like leaving it to the last minute...lol.

This layout was for the "fussy cutting" challenge. Now, if you've been reading my blog for a while, you would have noticed that I don't usually cut out stuff, so this was a good challenge for me. I cut the branches from som WRMK papers and I also trimmed out the bird house from a Bella Blvde sticker. The pics are of Eme eating cake at my Aunty's 60th birthday. For this challenge, we had to make our own embellishments - another thing I don't normally do (lol). I made a couple of flowers out of lace by gathering them with thread and inserting a brad in the centre. This layout is fairly simple compared to what I normally do, but I love it nonetheless. Eme was only 4 days old when this photo was taken, and I'd forgotten how tiny she was!
This one was for the stamping challenge. Ages ago I purchased a CK kit of the month by Ali Edwards, and I just love the stamps that were included, but I don't use them all too often. These pics are from Versailles, France. Beth and I went there for a weekend trip, however we didn't realise it was the May Day weekend. It was so busy and the line up to get into Versailles Palace was unbelievably long, so we skipped it and hung out in the town centre instead. The gardens were just beautiful. We sat in the tulips and watched a May Day parade, then bought some brie and a crate of strawberries at the local market. I still remember Beth ordering in her best french/aussie accent. lol. We then had lunch at Les McDonalds - wonderful french cuisine (rotfl).
For this one, I had to take inspiration from a piece of art. I took the colours from the piece, as well as the grid of three across the middle. This pic is from the flight over to visit my sister when she was living in England (see post above). I can't believe I still had my boarding pass after that many years.
This one is from the "Rockstar" challenge. There was a list of materials to chose from and I picked black cardstock, transparency, bling and staples...they're all there, trust me. That American Crafts paper is so vibrant and goes perfect with the hot pink Hambly transparency.
There are plenty more to share, but I've gotta pace myself...lol. Thanks for looking.
Lis.
