The Great Outdoors

Hard to believe that March is almost over, and I'm nearing the end of my Guest Stylist stint at Scrap Boutique. I've had the best fun with Chels, Manon and Em, and all of the Boutique Babes.

The March cybercrop starts tonight, with the theme "The Great Outdoors" ~ a great motivator to get some of our summer and/or outdoors photographs scrapped into gorgeous layouts!

I've set an inspiration challenge (find the details HERE) and this is my sample layout.

I'm also entering this layout in these challenges:
# Quixotic Paperie ~ Challenge #18 ~ monochromatic
Lots of orange - Bo Bunny and MME papers, two of my favourite manufacturers.
# Simon Says ~ Spring with glimmer
Bright colours, floral theme, Glimmermist-ed doiley, and some extra bling with Kaisercraft rhinestones and the beads in the flower centre.

** Thank you Leone for the doileys and the gorgeous handmade flower  xx

And speaking of the Great Outdoors, these are the layouts I created for Scrap Boutique, using the new 3 Bugs in a Rug paper range "The Great Outdoors":
