Vacation scrapping

I'm on an a camping/hiking trip for summer and I only have limited scrapping supplies with me, but I did find a moment to join in one last challenge for 2022. I sat myself in a sunny corner of a little bakery cafe ~

And I created this ~

Simple Stories Hello Baby - Blue Wood patterned paper
Pink Paislee/Paige Evans Turn the Page ~ Paper #5 patterned paper
Vicki Boutin Fernwood Collection - Fernwood patterned paper & journal cards
Jute twine
Coloured staples

My page was inspired by The Scrapbooking Den December sketch challenge.

I've been trying to organise my oldest stash a bit better... and I came across a few WRMK sticker sheets from the Fiesta collection. I'm not very confident of using them all, but I thought I would challenge myself to use them to build my Scrap Backwards kit for December. Anything that's left over, I will donate to the local kindy to use in their craft activities.

Off to a good start with the bracket and the alphabets:

Scenic Route Sonoma - Olive Ave patterned paper
DCWV Watercolour Garden patterned papers
Prima product packaging
Lots of green scraps!
Camera cutting die
Kaisercraft Pearls - Snow gems
Kaisercraft Rhinestones - Silver gems

White with GOLD

White with 1 December/January challenge is all about this spectacular mood board.

Any variation of GOLD you want to use - you can range this from light to dark , mix it up but it needs to be gold toned and nothing else. You can use black, dark brown, grey or navy as your accent colour for journaling, titles etc.

Inspired by the glam images of nails, shoes and eye make-up, I used a photograph from a photo shoot of my daughter a few years back.

White gloss cardstock (upcycled packaging)
Cocoa Vanilla You Rock! wood veneers
iCraft Deco Foil - Gold transfer sheet
May Arts Metallic Velvet - Gold glitter ribbon

I'm sharing my page at Simon Says Wednesday for the Anything Goes theme.
