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.

Keep Calm and Take Time out to smell the Roses - Scrap Africa / MME Challenge

Hi Everyone

A whole week has passed since my last post! Believe me, it is not that I have not been scrapping or keeping myself busy, just that I am busy with projects that I cannot share right at the moment.
It is a very chilly day in Johannesburg and is perfect for sitting at my scrapping table and getting some creativity down on paper...

I do have a project that I can share with you, and is one I did for the Scrap Africa Challenge and also for MME June Challenge.

The Scrap Africa challenge was to do a layout with the title Keep Calm and ....... and the MME challenge was to do some fussy I did a combination for both.

Here is my layout.

I used My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart papers and chipboards and the alpha lettering was Prima.

I had these pictures of Joe for a long time and really wanted to use them, and this layout was just perfect.

Here are some close-ups. In the last photo, Joe looks like he is pulling up his nose at the smell of the rose, but it was actually him pulling away because the rose petals had tickled his nose.
I actually love this rose and is one of the treasured one's in my garden.  It is always beautiful and it smells so fragrant too!

Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you are having a restful weekend...
