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.

Life is Good/Chill Out Mixed Media Layout - Celebr8 Local Pride

Hello Everyone

Some of you might have read that we went away to my hubby's Mom in Limpopo this past weekend.
My hubby took a photo of my on the farm, which I really just had to scrap! ;-)
He put the photo on FaceBook and had a comment of "Denise at a hen party"...I thought that was quite funny! ;-)

So here's the page.  I used the Local Pride Celebr8 papers, which were just perfect and apt for this page.

I used some of the Guinea Fowl feathers that I collected on the grass, as well as some of the seeds that I also collected up, as they were just gorgeous.

The truth be known, I absolutely love Guinea fowls and they are my favourite birds.

Here's some close-ups of the page.

Above and below, you can see the pod like seeds that I used, along with the feathers.

Lastly, here's a closer look at the wording on the page, which I thought was really so true of me.

I really love this page and I thrilled with the way it turned out.
It is really home grown and is filled with Local Pride, in more ways than one! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a super day!
