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.

12345...and before we knew it she was 13! - Scrap Around the World May Challenge

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are having a great week so far!

I have a page for the awesome celebratory challenge at Scrap Around the World here. There are really some lovely prizes to be won.

Here is the mood board.

There is certainly much to celebrate and this year my neice turned 13. I had created a canvas a few weeks back of her birthday, but then had given it to her.  So this layout is for MY treasure store! ;-)
We had a super celebratory dinner and here she is opening her gift from us. So all of these things tying into the mood board.

My title is a long one and is 12345...and before we knew it she was 13 and by golly, how true this is! She was just yesterday a baby and today she is a young woman! She is almost as tall as I's scary! ;-)
So this page is to celebrate and represent her blossoming into young womanhood!

I used Modern Miss from BoBunny, which is so perfect for this page! I love the colouring and fresh styling of this collection!

I am simply loving the the mixed media and so I played with paints, stamps, gesso, water and it was huge fun,as always!

I wanted to keep the styling young and fresh too, in keeping with this young beauty and her 13th birthday.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super evening!
