Challenge 17 is up over at ECP, it was a visual inspiration piece, and this is what I came up with, a very simple and sweet card. We were also sponsored by digi doodle, so the little owl is a digi doodle which I printed and then coloured with pro-markers!

I posted this in yesterdays depth of field prompt for Shimelles class, this photo makes me happy:


Saw this quote today, love it:

Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
Roald Dahl

Which Crafts project

I had the pleasure of guest designing at Which Crafts this month, and had a lovely chipboard butterfly kit sent to me from Maxine! Here is what I came up with, a butterfly book! I knew I wanted to do something more than a flat butterfly, so used the wings as a template to add pages to the right hand side. I then printed out some of my hipstamatic pics from my iphone, with a general theme of summer, added these in and embellished the pages. Fun!

and she can hula

I posted this photo in response to the first challenge for Shimelles new class (see side bar). We had to choose a photo that makes us smile. I chose this one. I love the fact that it shows Freya in full hula motion, but also the colours, the background and the light in it.

For those interested, the journalling on this layout reads:

Things I love about summer: long summer evenings, kids in the pool, the smell of suncream, flip flops, holidays, family time, no routines, impromptu BBQs with good friends, early sun on the patio, ice pops on the way home from school, British strawberries, Wimbledon, fresh salads and pasta, skirts and bikinis...

Challenge 16 is up at Easy Craft Projects, the theme is summer, so go take a look and join in! Here's mine in full:

I loved all the colours I used here and it was refreshing to not use a photo, just the digi stamp from Some Odd Girl, PP and journalling!
