Kraft + March Challenge

This month the challenge at Kraft + is to follow the sketch and add fussy cutting onto your layout.
I don't often do fussy cutting, it takes time and a bit of skill, and something to cut out!
I've had a piece of beautiful 49 and Market paper in my stash for almost a year now.  So pretty but I never knew how to use it.  When I saw this challenge I figured it out.
I cut the frame from the middle of the paper and used that over the photo.  I fussy cut the two bits on the sides of the frame and popped them up.
I also cut out the rest of the flowers and leaves on the paper to add to the layout.
So much cutting but such a pretty layout of a wee cutie with her spiky hair.

White with One March

The colour challenge for March at White with One is Crispy Lettuce, lots of lovely fresh green colours.
I used two cute photos of Chelsea wearing my headband, makes her look much older than 2 years old.  I like the darker green of the wall beside her against the lighter greens I used.
I managed to use some scraps of green I have and struggled with a title as many of the green alphas I wanted to use were gone, so a little title is best.

White with One February

The colour for February at White with One is Sizzling Pink.
Having two girls to scrap I have plenty of pink but not much that sizzles so much of the layout is more soothing than sizzling.
I decided once I saw that it was pink, that I wanted to use some of the many pink buttons I have in my stash, so I have made a circle of them, alternating light with dark.
I recently got some lovely chipboard swirls and inked them pink, but realised it was too light.  So I found a sizzling pink nail polish and used that instead.  Sometimes you have to think outside of the box to get the colour you want!!

White with One January

First layout of 2018 and its only the 2nd.  :)

White with One's colour challenge for the month of January is Bayou Blue, a good start to the year as my favourite colour is blue.

I took inspiration from a magazine I found hiding in a draw, flipping through the pages I saw an amazing layout and this is my attempt to recreate it.
I also used some things that have been sitting in my stash for a while.

White with 1 December

The colour for the month of December is Watermelon Red.

I chose to do a Christmas themed photo, so I found an older Santa photo from when Michelle was little and didn't want to sit on his knee and I got to be in the photo.
I did some stamping in the background at the top, used some Christmas music paper at the bottom with a border at the bottom.
Some white lace and red flowers under the photo with a simple title.
I tried to add my own bling swirl but that didn't go very well, so note to self not to try that again!

White with 1 November challenge

The colour for November is Pineapple Dream.
I used a photo of Chelsea who had learned to do thumbs up!  The doily has been edged in Margarita Mix gelato, and there is a circle of patterned paper that has pineapples on it. 
A few flowers and rubons around the page and a Cute banner in the corner.

A2Z Scraplets November Challenge

The inspiration for November is wild open spaces, outdoors, bush, rivers, etc.
I chose to use a B&W photo of Michelle balancing on a tree branch.  She loves to sit on the tree branches when we go to the Botanical Gardens, one tree in particular.  This is a new one we found.  She was happy to sit and have photos taken, however Chelsea refused to even try.
I used a piece of paper that already has a tree on it, and tried to line up the background of my photo with the lines on the paper.  I added chipboard clouds and arrows, that I inked with distress ink, as well as the title 'laugh'.
The leaves have Snow Cone gelato on them and doilies under the photo.
