I've always LOVEd Louise Nelson's work, so using the palette from this weeks Colour Combo challenge (inspired to use something from my garden) and based on Get Picky's Sketch 2 (which I just realised has already closed LOL!) I managed this... and I LOVE it - so quick to do too :)

I love "two bees"...

I really love "two bees" in Lavendula

Wow - two posts in one day LOL!

Stumbled across the newly re-launched "white with 1 (WW1)" site and it was just the motivation I needed to complete a layout I had started for "Get Picky's" Sketch #1 last month. The yellow in this months WW1 really makes the lavender photos pop!  Saw the technique to create textured clouds using cuttlebug swirls on someone's blog recently - just can't remember who - but thanks for the idea!!!

Memories like this... priceless

Not quite sure what it is with my pages lately, start off heading in one direction and keep ending up in a whole different city - sometimes even a different country LOL!  This is a boy page - not that you'd guess it with all these flowers going on!!!

Loved the colours at Color Combo Challenge this week.  Couldn't wait to dust off my cuttlebug and used the damask folder on cor'dinations cardstock as the background - then promptly covered it with flowers!  Bird and branches rub-ons from Jenni Bowlin are on damask paper too.

Given what happened last week, shared moments like these are more precious than ever :)

... lovin' the colour palette at The Colour Room!!!   Believe it or not this was based on this weeks sketch as well, I rotated it clockwise and shifted the journalling tag down - these things never quite turn out the way you planned lol!  Loving the new Prima flowers & sprays too ;)
Journalling is an excerpt from a poem my DD wrote at school earlier this year.

Life is bliss... taste it!

Take 2!!
Life is bliss... taste it!
Joined in the Top 50 Scrapbooking "Life as we know it" Challenges this week.  Challenge 1 is based on a quote from Mother Teresa, which in part is "Life is bliss... taste it!".  I had the perfect photo - one of my current favourites of my two kiddies sharing an ice-cream.  Other criteria for the challenge were at least one flower, ribbon or lace and an embellishment cluster - got them covered!

Not wanting to waste an opportunity I combined this challenge with this weeks inspiration from The Colour Room... so yummy you could taste it LOL!

Had another play with my layout and enlarged the photo to balance with the embellishments better & added a pink frame to ground the layout.

Two by Sea...

Two by Sea
Colour palette #30 
Love the inspiration this week in the colour room, was hoping to do another but maybe later - busy painting & party preparations this week :)

Photos from our recent trip to WA - even in the midst of winter these two love nothing more than playing by the sea.
