White with one September

Image
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.



Kraft + September

Image
The challenge at Kraft + for September is all about Spring (finally) and bees.  A wonderfully bee filled inspiration image was given and from that I used the idea of hexagons.
I found a 6x6 piece of yellow zigzagged pattern paper and used a small hexagon chipboard shape to trace around and cut out lots of small hexagons.
Good shape for not wasting too much paper but not always easy to line up straight on the page, for me at least!!
I also used a stencil with modelling paste in two opposite corners.
I added the date on a black sticker with a yellow rose and a black butterfly as I wanted a bit more black on the page.



A2Z Scraplets September Challenge

Image
The challenge this month is to create a Christmas themed layout without using Red or Green.  Not easy as I kept wanting to use green as I have trees in the photo.
I had this photo sitting around that my husband had printed out a few years ago with the idea of using it for something else, but it never got used so I decided this was a good time to scrap it.
I used peach/pink for my colours, adding small stars and circles to the background with my modelling paste and painting snowflakes white that I got in a small Christmas pack a few years ago.
The photo is from the 17th of December 2011, when Michelle was just little, and we got to go inside a giant snow globe with lots of fake snow.
