Another challenge which is running at Scrappin Patch is the boyzone one by Delys and is a music inspired one with the following ingredients :
Have a music theme whether it be the photo, the title (eg thriller-aka michael jackson), papers you have or embellishments or some lyrics that inspire you for this boyzone challenge..and Kraft cardstock and buttons. Thats it!

I stamped the images on the Kraft paper with timber brown Staz on and love the effect.

Some happy mail = Inspiration

I got a lovely bit of Happy mail yesterday from Adrienne and Pauline over at Scrappin' Patch. Inside was some lovely amber coloured Dew Drops and some Prima leaves.

I decide to do this layout recalling how as a child I did not build sandcastles but sand gardens and my daughter did the same last holidays which brought back some happy memories.

I have used the dewdrops as flower centres and on my stamped prima swirls. I just adhered the dewdrops with some tacky glue which dries clear. These are awesome little embellishments and the prima leaves are just gorgeous.

I have also used a Little Yellow Bicycle clear Journal spot, Prima harmony paper and other colour leaves, shells,raffia and Basic grey alphas and frame.
