Cuba - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

 Happy Mother’s Day out there to all the wonderful Moms of the world. It’s time for the latest reveal from Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal. We are continuing with the theme of using colour challenges for the month of May.

Here is the latest inspiration....


And here is the layout that I created....


Indeed life is good in paradise...and we are all missing our getaways!!!

Here is each side of my double layout closer up...




This layout came together very quickly, the background paper of course was ideal for the theme and the challenge. I used an exacto knife to cut out some of the leaves and flowers and tucked my photo in behind as I didn’t want to cover those details.

Angus - Week 1 to Week 3

Good evening everyone, I am presently at a weekend retreat and wanted to share a couple of Project Life style cards that I created. We recently adopted a new puppy and I have taken a lot of photos, so I thought I would do a few project life style pages rather than a million layouts.


I was inspired by the Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style sketch #109.


And here is the entire page.


And another card....


Inspired by Sketch #110 from Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style.


And the full 4x6 card...
