Summer scrapping

There are some bright and beautiful mood boards in blog-land this month, the perfect motivation to get some more beach photos scrapped.

This is the Show Us Your Stuff mood board:

And this is my take:

Authentique Radiant - Smiling patterned paper
Glitz Designs Glitter - Pink alphabet stickers
Carolee's Creations Adorn It - Flirtacious alphabet stickers
Charms Creations Hot Pink Spotty arrow embellishment
Wooden flower buttons
Crayola Golden Yellow watercolour pencil

I took my inspiration from the beach theme and the bright colours, particularly the hot pink flamingoes against the teal background. My handmade item is from Charms Creations.


This is the mood board at Scrapbookit:

And this is my take:

Cocoa Vanilla Sugar & Spice - Garden Girl patterned paper
Cocoa Vanilla Sugar & Spice - Perfect patterned paper
Glitz Designs Dance in Sunshine - Polka patterned paper
Green Tara 7cm Petals - Gold paper flower
Green Tara 7cm Petals - Orange paper flower
Embroidered lace trim flowers (from my habby stash)
Pink satin flower (unknown brand)
D-lish Scraps Woodgrain Hashtags flair button

I took inspiration from the bright colours {in particular the flowers} and the overall summer-y vibe of the mood board.

I used the January Rewind sketch at Grand Diva's Creative Corner. Actually, I started out with the sketch but I really had a hard time with it.  I've got the three photos, the main vertical patterned paper piece, horizontal elements, the round elements, and the journalling block... they're just shuffled around a bit so it only kinda-sorta looks like the sketch, if you squint!


And a lovely one at Anna's Craft Cupboard too:

This is the layout I created, based on the first January sketch at Stuck?! Sketches:

Studio Calico Story Time - Goodnight patterned paper
Webster's Pages Hello World - Little Moments patterned paper
Bazzill Basics Smoothies - Blackberry Swirl cardstock
Cre8tiv Glitter Icon stickers
My Memories Medium Heart punch
My Memories SmallHeart punch

Happy summer!  Thank you for visiting my blog!
