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.

Kraft + October

Upon reading that we needed to use something clear on our layout this month, my immediate thought was of the clear clock I have.  Not sure I have anything else that is clear.
Then because I decided to use a clock I figured I should use two photos, one older and one current.
I found one of Chelsea in her pink Minnie ears from her 3rd birthday and an older cute photo when she was about 3-4 months old.
Added a few bits and pieces, and had a discussion with hubby about my spelling of 'flies'!

White with 1 October Challenge

The colour for October is Pink Whisper, in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Pink has never been my favourite colour, except to scrap with, especially since I have two girls.
So I wasn't worried about finding pink things in my stash.
I even remember this month to use the sketch, I usually get started on my layout and then remember there is a sketch I can use, then it's too late!!
I used the pink striped paper to match her jacket as well as the ribbon.  The little pink flowers were new to me and just the right amount of them to go across.
I tried to keep with the lighter pinks to match her jacket and I like the way it has come out.

White with one September

The colour for September is Soul Pea.
I have recently printed just over a hundred photos, so I have plenty of new ones to choose from.
This one is of Chelsea having put on her green top all by herself.  However she put it on upside, so of course I had to get a photo of that, and Michelle helped by holding the top up for a better photo!!  The top reads Perfect.
I mixed my Snow Cone gelato with some modelling paste and used an icing sugar stencil.  I got a pack on clearance at the Warehouse a while ago for $3 and I will get more use of out them as scrapbooking stencils than for any cakes!
I've had the green bunting for a long time, it comes on a 12x12 piece of paper, you just pull of the amount you want, so I've been using bits of it as I need it.
Added a tag and a few flowers to finish.
