Sweet Memory...

 Spring has finally arrived and we have had some beautiful sunny days to get us all excited about the warmer weather that is to come! Springtime in my opinion is the best season of the year.
I'm very much looking forward to some more sunshine and longer days.

I have been lucky enough this month to set the Scrapbookit September Challenge, I hope that you all enjoy what I have come up with. I have found a mood board which is pictured below that you can take inspiration off in any way that you would like, it could be that you use butterflies that you have chosen off the mood board or you use circles or flowers on your layout that have been inspired from the mood board or that you just do a layout using some of the colours provided on the mood board. The possibilities are endless and a whole lot of fun!
I have also added a few extra criteria these are to:
*Use the Mood board provided(pictured above).
*Use the word LOVE somewhere on your layout.
*Use a mixed media element.
*Use some fussy cutting.
Easy right?? This is what I have come up with. I have actually used my challenge criteria not just for a layout but also for a 90th Birthday card I made for my husband's Grandma.
I will start with the card first.
I began using a plain white square card, I embossed it using a Kaisercraft embossing folder, added some Ranger distress oxide on Barn door, spritzed it with water then used some paper towel to mop the excess water off. I love the effect this gives to the paper, I then used the Uniquely Creative script font die and added it to my background.
This month I have been lucky enough to use this beautiful 49 Market Cottage life paper collection, normally I would have a lot of trouble using this type of paper but I actually really enjoyed using it and I am very happy with the results on my card and layout!
 I have fussy cut an image from the paper, added some Uniquely Creative flowers as well as some Kaisercraft pearls and a Kaisercraft clear sticker, then to finish my card I have added this beautiful lace butterfly. It is absolutely gorgeous and really goes with this paper range.

Next for my challenge layout!

As I have said above I have started my layout using a patterned piece of paper from the 49 market cottage life paper range, I added some stencilling with a Kaisercraft lace border stencil and some Ranger distress oxide in Barn door.

In following the challenge criteria I have used the word 'LOVE' several times on my layout, fussy cut A LOT of flowers, my mixed media element was the stencilling and the inspiration I have taken from the mood board was the butterfly's and the flowers.

Once again I have used the gorgeous lace  butterfly's from the Uniquely Creative range as well as some of their flowers! The wooden chippie I have used is from Scrap fx and is called celebration of hearts, I have used the same barn door distress oxide on it and added some Ranger Glossy Accents over the top as well. My photo's are backed using some of the patterned paper as well as the layers of paper underneath it. To finish my layout I have added a doodle border and a Kaisercraft clear sticker over the pile of flowers that I fussy cut out.

I hope that you have enjoyed my layout, all of the products used on this page are available from head on over to Jo's online shop and see what she has to offer!
I look forward to seeing what you all come up with!
Happy Scrapping
