Sugar Rush | Scrap The Girls DT

You know what I love most about the Scrap The Girls challenges? It’s that they are just that – a challenge! I love that I am forced to completely either think outside of the box OR go to a place I would never have gone to get inspiration! This month is no different – check it out:

Confused???? The challenge is to scrap about your hangover – it can be anything! Here’s what I did:

My hangover is this little miss – either her sugar rush or her coming down from a sugar rush!!! Some close ups:

Life Is Short | CSI

Debbi has prepared a really great challenge to kick off November – check it out:

No photo description available.

And here is the layout I created:

I used black, white, orange, pale blue and fuchsia! I was inspired by the polka dots, stripes, flowers and brush font in the image, so I used them on my layout. My gorgeous selection of chippies are from 2Crafty Chipboard.

As for my journalling, I read all the little phrases on the wall in the image and felt that the message they carried was one of positivity and grabbing life and opportunities by the horns!

Here are some close ups:

A Daughter… | CSI

Halfway through the month means that our second reveal at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration has gone live. Here is the next challenge:

No photo description available.

Cute, eh? Here is what I created for this one:

I worked with 2 shades of a fern / sage green, bright red, white and a denimy blue. I drew inspiration from the images in the stripes, the leaves and the little animal. I also used a background paper which reminded me of the ‘washed out’ feel of the wall paper in the image. My chipboard title and pretty leaves are all from 2Crafty Chipboard.

I scrapped about mother-daughter dates that I have so often with my child!

Perfect As You Are | CSI

Just have a look at this pretty inspiration image that Debbi has found for us to play along with at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration!

No photo description available.

I just love it! Here is my layout for this one:

I just loved the colours of this challenge, so used them predominantly in my layout. I opted for shades of minty-teal. I also used rectangles in my layering, like the rectangular pictures in the image. I chose some gorgeous frames from 2Crafty Chipboard; and my PERFECT title is also from them!

Today Was So Much Fun | CSI DT

I simply loved working on this month’s Cold Case File at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration! Check it out!

Isn’t it just delightfully colourful!?

Here is what I created:

As you can see, I went WILD with colour! I used most of the colours that are in the image.

My eye was drawn to the row of yellow dots in the image, so I fished out as much colourful spotty dotty paper as I could; I even found some that I forget existed! I found a pretty scallop-dotty sticker to use as well. Sticking to the ‘spacey’ them, I chose a background paper that reminded me a little of the sky at dusk; and then I also added various forms of stars – from my chipboard pieces (thanks to my 2Crafty stash!!) and then some fussy cut stars as well!

Here are some close up images:

October Memories | CSI DT

We have a Halloween themed challenge to end off October, over at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration:

No photo description available.

I loved this one! Here’s what I created:

My colours are cream, black, orange, yellow and grey.

I went opposite to the inspiration image – i.e. bright on black (as opposed to black on bright!). I was inspired by the stripes and the circles; and also the scroll work. I love this border chippie from 2Crafty – it made me think a little of those scrolled gates you’d always see at the front of a haunted mansion! I also took inspiration from the crescent mood and used a crescent shaped chippie (also from 2Crafty). I added some doodles spiders, webs and a bat.

My story goes that although we, here in South Africa, really do not celebrate Halloween the way other countries do, we were very excited when our local neighbourhood organised a Trick or Treat sessions for the local kids. It only happened this one year, but I am SO pleased that I finally got to scrap this photograph (which is 3 years old!).

Here are some more shots of this piece:
