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.

Goggle Eyed - Scrap Africa Challenge

Hi Everyone

I just love Saturdays! I can take my time getting up in the morning and lounge about with a cup of coffee, and always find time for lots of scrap booking! Nothing is rushed and that is when I can relax and have lots of inspiration.

I am really excited about the new Scrap Africa Challenge Blog and was very keen to get a layout done for this challenge. I think there is heaps of talent in South Africa and hopefully it can be showcased here.

The very first challenge and here is the sketch.

I loved Svetlana's page and also decided to do a boys page. See my offering below - Goggle Eyed

I just love this picture of Joe and think he really looks like a little cute bug! So with the bright colours of the photo's it was great to be able to use bright coloured papers and accents. I did stamping along the border and also did some splash painting with Dazzles Spray Ink. I used Doodlebug Design Apron Strings paper, Echo Park Sweet Summertime & Summer Days & Happy Days paper, and Echo Park Dots and Stripes stickers. I stamped with Hampton Art Foot Longs Stamps and used Sandy Lion stickers too.

Below are 2 close ups.

I hope you are having a relaxing Saturday afternoon and maybe are scrapping...
Have a great one.
