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.

It's December and it's Bloomin Marvelous - OUAS December Challenge

Hi Everyone

Yesterday was a Public Holiday here and so it was a good opportunity to catch up on some scrapping.  I finished this layout for the OUAS challenge and I am almost done with another layout, which I hope to share with you tomorrow.

So here was the sketch challenge.

Here is my version of it.

The title is a bit of a play on words, as it refers to the beautiful daisies in my garden! Here is a close-up below of the hidden journalling, which is the green tag to the right of my layout, which gives you the story behind the layout and title.

December is definitely my favourite time of the year, and as you can see, for many reasons.

I used Bo Bunny Country Garden papers and tags. The chipboard lantern is Enmarc and the fence is Celebr8 and all the woody swirls are Design Worx. The flowers are Prima and Petaloo. I decided to keep the colouring white and green as it emphasises the white daisies. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and punches for the leaves also.  The big fern leaves are Cuttlebug cut and embossed and spritzed with Dazzles sprays.

Here are some more close-ups.

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a look.
Hope you have a super evening!
