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.

Today - Berry71Bleu November Challenge

Hello Everyone

Sorry for missing a few days, but with year end functions, DT work and family commitments, I just could not get to my blog! ;-) But here I am today and have a page to share!

Berry71Bleu had a fabulous mood board this month.

I created this page.

I created this page for my Mother in Law. It's a photo of her sister, when she was a teenager.

This piece of chipboard is beautiful and I used Weathered Worn distress embossing powder on it.
I also used some Teresa Collins papers from my stash, so was pleased to use them.

Now to tell you the sad story of this page! I literally finished it, had taken these photo's of it and had put it down inside and went outside to bring in my props, camera and other projects.
In the meantime, my parrot Pepsi, got hold of this page and basically destroyed it! You have no idea, how close she came to almost being fried parrot!!!!! I was livid and also really upset!!
My own fault though, I should have known better.

In anycase, I happened to have some more of these papers and have taken the original page apart, to try and rescue some of the bits. The chipboard is damaged, but I think I can sort of tuck it under a few other bits and will be able to still use it.  So will see how page 2 turns out.

I can smile about it today, but on the weekend, it was a teary moment!!
Anyways, we just move on! ;-)

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a super Monday!

  1. OH NO! and yes we do have know what our pets are capable of.I am so glad she did not make it to the pot. :D How devastating but maybe you will love the new page even more. It is such a pretty vintage feel layout. Love the soft colours and I am so sorry you lost the first one. I think you should post the second one so we can all see what to do if it happens to any of us <3

  2. sorry to hear that your parrot nearly destroyed all your hard work. Love the chipboard doily and the pearls.

  3. Oh my goodness - I think I would have been tempted to plop her in the pot! How frustrating for you. The layout has a lovely, soft, vintage vibe - just perfect with the sweet photo. TFS

  4. oh MY!!! Naughty parrot.....then that's an even more amazing result. NEW FAVE....adore this page....those little pearls edged around are soooooo cute!!! It looks a really special page...& after all that trauma, it obviously IS!!!!!

  5. Denise I saw this lovely layout on the BerryBleu blog and wanted to tell you it's beautiful!I love that sweet vintage photo and your flowers cascading down the page...very beautiful! Thank you for visiting me....I am so glad you do. So sorry to hear about your naughty bird! I hate it when those things happen, I hope you can salvage it, you never know, it might come out even better the second time! Hugs, Lisa
