Cherished | White.. with 1 DT

I’m very fond of blue – but one of my MOST favourite (and worn!) shades of blue, is royal blue! This month, at White .. with 1, that is the very colour you get to work with! Along with a rather sublime mood board:

I just LOVED the frame on the left – so I went with some Moroccan elements in my layout – I used it with my washi tape, with some paper and then also with some chippies. Here’s what I created:

Just Live Now | Scrap The Girls

Hey guys,

This month’s challenge at Scrap The Girls has gone live! Be inspired by a movie of the 90’s – and please head on over to the blog to check out the amazing layouts my fellow DT members have put together!

Here is what I did with this one. My inspiration was My Girl…

The movie was set in the 70’s and that made me think of boho, hippie, etc.; and as such, I added in a bit of a boho feel with the doilies, mandala’s and a few feathers and arrows. The reason I chose that move specifically is because bits of it ring true to my life; we lost my husband suddenly at the end of 2014, so we have had to face a few of the challenges as shown in the movie. Also, there is a line, said by Vada, in the movie that rung true with me “Life isn’t just death. Don’t ignore the living.” I think of that in two ways. First off – don’t ignore ACTUALLY living – live properly and fully and be present. And don’t forget the living – the people you love most, don’t forget to drop them a message, give them an extra hug, kiss them goodbye or hello… tell them you love them. Life is INCREDIBLY short… you need to live and embrace it! This was a very hard lesson that I have had to learn – and I HAVE to pass it on!

Here are some close ups:
