Lunch Date

This layout was inspired by the November Colour Challenge at Anna's Craft Cupboard.


I struggled with the colours a little {I usually stick to 1 or 2 main colours in a layout} but after digging around in my stash and shuffling bits & pieces, this is what I came up with:


Materials
Cocoa Vanilla Love Always - Bouquet patterned paper
Sam & Lucy Weave Extras - Bling rhinestones & rhinestone strips
Unbranded paper flowers
Product packaging
Making Memories Noteworthy die cut journal spot
Coloured doily
Lily Bee Designs Picket Fence alphabet stickers

Hmmm... looks very pink on the screen, but in real life it is mostly peach!

Having fun with a little mixed media...

I spent school holidays in a caravan just like this in the 1970's {yes, I was a 70's child!} This Lego caravan was so lifelike! The photos don't really do it justice. I found a Brisbane Times article that has more information and more photos.

Orange Blaze

I was immediately drawn to the November challenge at White... with 1:



Orange is my favourite colour to scrap with. My take from the mood board is the mix of textures - hard, smooth, soft and rippled:


Materials
Studio Calico Heyday - Tangerines patterned paper
Becky Higgins Project Life - Clementine patterned paper
Charm

The driftwood, shells and sea glass were all found on the beach at King Island:



I found a tiny charm in my stash and couldn't resist adding it to the photograph of Jess:
