This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Sharon - Berry71Bleu May Challenge/ BoBunny Beautiful Dreamer

Hello Everyone

Apologies for my blog having been so quiet this past week.
My sister had a huge health scare over the last 2 weeks and it meant that I had to just help out a little and do a few extra things...so in between work and family, creating came last.

Thankfully my sister is okay and I am so relieved and this page I created is to celebrate this fact.

This page is for the Berry71Bleu challenge this month.

Check out this gorgeous mood board.


Here is my page.


I used the gorgeous Beautiful Dreamer collection from BoBunny, along with some BoBunny stickable stencils, stamps and more! ;-)

Here's a close-up.


I used a lovely photo of my sister that was taken in a photo shoot about a year ago.  It's just a lovely and soft photo of her.


These past 2 weeks were really emotional and it was always our biggest hope and belief that she would be okay.  So yes, I wanted to add this little part to the page.


I love the softness that I was able to put into this page.  

Anyways, there is still some time to play along with the Berry71Bleu mood board this month.
Why not pop over and have a look at the inspiration.

Have a beautiful Sunday!

Dad - Prima BAP

Hello Everyone

I hope that you had a good weekend! ;-)
We had a really chilly and wet weekend in Johannesburg and so it was a good opportunity to get some scrappy time in.

I haven't been able to play along with the Prima challenges for months and so thought it was a good time to try and play along.

Here's the sketch.

2016 may bap

I recently got hold of the Vintage Emporium collection and I knew that it would be perfect for a vintage, masculine page.  So here's the result.


I loved playing with the background textures, stamping etc. and I am really happy with the result.


I kept the flowers to a minimum, since being a masculine page and don't think they make it too flowery.


I love the rusty, orange colouring in this paper and really wanted to bring it out more.


I even used some older bits of Prime pieces and was pleased that I was able to use from my stash.

This handsome man is my father.  He was probably around 20 here and he sure was very handsome and suave.  He is still handsome and at 70 plus years old, he is still amazing! ;-)

It has been ages since I last did a layout and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed creating this page.
I actually can't wait to get started on the next one.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate your visits!
