Tropical State of Mind - DA & Lindy's


Hello friends,

Sharing a new layout for you made for the Dusty Attic and Lindy's August challenges. 

The color palettes are quite similar and with the beautiful 49 and Market papers I found to match them I think I made it all work. I hope you like it.
The picture was taken at St Maarten and is of the Courthouse there. Always a lovely destination during our cruises.

Sprays
Embossing Powder

To fit the Dusty Attic challenge the colors matched and I found a nice picture with palm trees to fit the theme. Going through my stash of the gorgeous Dusty attic chipboard I found a few good ones for layering. Also used a Dusty Attic stencil.






After doing a few layouts with lots of bright colors it's fun to work on a layout with pastels. So different. 

I want to thank you all for taking a look at my blog and supporting me. 

Have a great day and see you around the internet!

CE & CSI 291 - Wanderlust Joy


Hello Friends,

Sharing with you a layout that I made to fit with 2 challenges.
The Month of August seems to be Purple month. 
A beautiful color. Love it!

The layout I made has a picture of us when we were in Disney World 2 years ago. It was taken in the Epcot center - Italy. Always fun when you can travel the world in a day walking around the lake there.

The colors fit both themes.



The CSI clues used are : Stripes (Paper), Floral Pattern (Stamp embossed with gold), Flowers/Leaves (Chipboard), Doily (Chipboard Edge), Gold Element ( Embossing powder & Liquid Pearls), Hearts (In Doily Chipboard Edge), NUVO drops (Liquid Pearls on Chipboard pieces), Glitter (Stickles on Chipboard Vines, Wanderlust title



For Creative Embellishments I used the colors, Vine and an assortment of chipboards.



A few close-ups.




It was a lot of fun making this layout. Been a while since I've used liquid Pearls and Stickles. Makes chipboard look completely different.

Thank you all so much for checking out my blog.

Enjoy your day! Hope to see you soon again!

MTW - 13 Arts - Family Joy

Hello Friends,

What an exciting month July has been.
Such an awesome beginning of my scrapbooking adventure again.

Hoping my mojo will stick around for a little bit.

This layout fits for two challenges. 
13 Arts and More Than Words.



I used 13 Arts papers, stencils and chipboard and used of course the colors, flowers and butterflies.



To Fill the Requirements for the MTW Challenge I followed the sketch and of course the pictures tell a thousand words. My niece just had a new baby boy. True happiness to add to the family. 


Some more close-ups!





As always, thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking a look at my work. I truly appreciate you taking the time.

See you around the interwebs!

CSI 288 - Great Outdoors

Hello friends!

Thank you for visiting my blog (again).

Just before this month of re-discovery ends I have made another layout for a CSI Challenge. Tried to use as many hints in the description as I could. 

Polkadots on the paper - check, Transporation - check, glitter - check, embossing (powder) check, stars - check, sequins - check, labels - check, use the word great, best or simple - check, and best of all the color scheme, check check check! Of course no layout is complete for me without a truckload of flowers. I think I made it work and hope you do too. 

This picture was taken on the day we celebrated my sisters 50th birthday. She loves VW vans and it was her dream to drive one of them, so her oldest had rented one for the day and we went on our way and made a special day of it. We had a great time, exploring the countryside, had an English tea at a castle. Perfect day. and a perfect celebration.

Below some extra close-ups.






As always, I appreciate you stopping by my blog. Thank you so much!

Have a great day!

Lydia
