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.

The Good Life - Scrap Around the World March Challenge

Hello Everyone

I am just managing to get this layout up in time before the challenge closes......another hectic month is almost finished! ;-)

Here's the gorgeous mood board this month.

I was inspired by the colouring and the fact that this could be a masculine board.  I saw the little robot drawing and though about boys and their toys....LOL

So here's my minimalistic take.

I created the background with strips of washi tape and then added some watercolouring.

Here's a closer look.  I also used some rub-ons that I have had for ages.

This picture tells quite a story and so I wanted to really document that.  So I put a journalling tag behind the photo - the Details

"We were visiting Johanns Mom on the farm and there was heavy rain the night before.  So we had all gone out in the Landrover and bakkie for a drive and the Landrover got stuck in the mud.  We first tried to pull it out with the 4x4 bakkie, which was no use whatsoever.  Johann then went back to get the tractor, along with Joe and eventually they pulled the Landrover out.  It was huge fun for us all!
This was the 2 of them...very determined on their rescue mission!"

The square chipboard, behind the photo, was heat embossed and is Blue Fern Studios piece.

Thanks so much for popping in.
I hope you have a super Saturday!
