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.

Close - Scrap Around the World August Challenge

Hi Everyone

I am so loving the scrapping at the moment. Joe is sitting here next to me, and he is happily drawing away and I am writing this post and scrapping! Bliss! ;-)

I have a page to share with you for the Scrap Around the World Challenge here.
This is the challenge.

I decided to be really bold, as I really liked the cake, with the orange flowers and green leaves. So my colouring comes from that image!

So here is my version.

This is a little different from my usual style, but I am quite happy with how it turned out! I did the masking first and then added my photo along with the stamping.  Then I did lots of fussy cutting on the flowers and then put it all together.

I have a close-up of my journalling here.

I have quite a number of Bo Bunny papers and so decided that I really want to start using them! So I used Hello Sunshine papers and stamps, along with some MME enamel dots and W&M chippies.
The background stencil used was Prima, and the spritz was Enmarc Dazzles, Burnt Orange.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a super evening.
