A month of Monet!

This month at ARTastic, we are inspired by Claude Monet and his painting 'Sunset'. This is such a beautiful and peaceful painting!
It is time to get those sunset photos out and match them up with some blue and green! Here are the details...

Diva demand for an extra 6 bonus points, try and work the following into your layout, card or OTP project ...
1. Sun or sunset = 1pt
2. Shades of blue and green on your layout = 2pts
3. A cut out black silhouette image = 3pts
Entries for 'Sunset' will close Sunday 29th August at midnight.
Here is the painting and my DT submission...

Here is a layout I completed a little while ago, but I hadn't popped it up on my blog yet... The photo was taken while we were on holidays at Port Macquarie. We stopped at this amazing lighthouse with the most breathtaking ocean views and we happily took photos for quite some time. I can thank my wonderful hubby for taking this gorgeous photo of our daughter. Thanks for stopping by! xxx

Hey Birdie

Here is a layout I have just finished for the July sketch challenge over at Enchanted. I love the 'Hey Birdie' Kaiser range so much!
It is gorgeous and makes me smile each time I see it!

Great News!

I have some great news to share... I have been invited back to the ARTastic Challenge Blog as part of their DT team! This is so exciting for me and I am thankful to Shazza for her support this year. She has written a lovely post about my scrapping *blush* and you can check it out here. This month at ARTastic the inspirational painting is 'The Card Sharpes' by Carravaggio.
The added criteria are;
1. A playing card (1 point)
2. Brown tones (2 points)
3. A feather (3 points)
You can find all of the details here. My layout is called 'Fun Times'. I was inspired by the people in the painting playing a game and thought these photos of my daughter hitting golf balls would suit nicely. I added different of shades of brown in the papers, flowers, ribbon, pearls and bling. I have a playing card in the flower cluster, but I didn't have any feathers in my stash to add to the layout. Thanks for sharing in my wonderful news! xxx
