Hello Everyone! Mel here to share with you my take on the June Challenge here at Scrapbookit. 

I can't believe that it is June.....where is this year going???

As you will have heard Brenda has set this months challenge.
She has been very clever and created her own sketch.

The theme for this month is Mum's the Word!

Here is the sketch

I have used a photo of my Mum with Brayden (my son). This was the day after he was born! A very special photo and a very special Mum!
Brayden is Mum's first grandson and obviously she just adored him from the moment she laid eyes on him.

Here is my layout...

I have been very lucky this month to receive and work with the gorgeous Graphic 45 ~ Secret Garden Collection papers. How awesome are they? I am not used to using such busy papers....but loved using these. Jo has this paper in the online store.....perfect for those 'Mum' layouts. I have also used some Vanilla Kaisercard  for the base of my layout.

I have cut the die cut journalling shapes from the 'Meadow Lark'  paper. The top one I just trimmed down.

I have used Kaisercraft Paper Blooms - Sunset and the gorgeous Manor House Creations flower as my embellishment cluster. I have also added some organza ribbon bows.

I have used Thickers (Forest - Chipboard Letters) for my title 'Treasure.' I thought this was an appropriate Mum 'treasures' Brayden and how Brayden does/will cherish this special moment.

Here is a close up of my little embellishment cluster...

Well, now it is your turn!
Use the sketch to create your layout with the theme 'Mum's the Word.' There are some awesome entries so far this month. Check them out here at the Scrapbookit Gallery.
To enter your challenge send a photo to Jo (

Don't forget there is also a Kids Challenge too......create a layout that features School.

Well, that is all from me at the moment.
Make sure you pop back throughout the rest of the month to see the other projects that the girls have been busy creating.

Happy Scrapping
