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.

Child of my Heart - Scrap Africa - Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone

I have been so priviledged to be the guest designer at Scrap Africa for their Colour Combo Challenge this week and just love the challenge that they provided.

The challenge was to use at least 3 colours from the South African flag.
So here is the layout that I created.

This was such a different kinda style for me, but I think the result was really nice.  I really only used cardstock and used 2 little bits of October Afternoon patterned papers for the corners.  I used MME cut outs and Making Memories rub-ons, 7 Gypsies stickers and Echo Park stickers.

The white patterned dots were painted onto the black cardstock and then I added some buttons for effect.

Here are some more close-ups.

These are 2 of my favourite pictures of my son...and this title rings absolutely true..Child of my Heart!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a great weekend.
