Playing along with both challenges on CSI this month.
For #260 I have completed a cruise vacation page using the colour palette and taking a number of items from the evidence list - stripes, anchor, gold (spray), labels, transportation embellies, travel themed elements.
For #259 I ran with the colours to help inspire me to document a day trip for my dd and her bf.
I truly wasn't sure what to do with the challenge on Scrap the Boys this month. It really had me thinking.
Eventually I decided just to go with the basic colour scheme of teal and black (and threw in yellow and a brighter green as a bit of contrast) and went with the theme, selecting a photo of my son hamming it up at the Australian Museum and being seriously WILD :)
and I wasn't at all sure how to run with this one until I focused on the top right photo which in some ways reminded me of many of the photos my daughter took when she visited Fiji for an end of school "make a difference" trip some years ago.
I took the green from the background and went with a "going tribal" theme to match in with the obligatory braided and beaded hair !
This page is composed of project life cards - I have such a massive stash I just need to used them up in some way.
I live by the coast so no snow for me and the very few ski trip photos I have are long since scrapped so I decided to scrap about Winter by the Sea, added in some blue, used a kraft background as a nod to the colour in the owl image and added in lots of snowflakes.
I am playing along with Scrapbook Boutique and their mood board this month - so many ideas for this one. I thought I might have had a little fox embellishment somewhere but after scouring my stash it was not to be - of course one will come to light the very next time I look - such is life!
Eventually I decided to focus on the keyboard and take some of the muted colours from the images.
I couldn't resist the birthday themed moodboard on Scrap the Girls this month. I was particularly taken with the overall colour scheme of pink, yellow, grey, black and white along with the cake and scrapped a birthday page of my dd.
Oh my gosh ABBA !! I so loved ABBA, I can remember lots of parties where songs from ABBA featured strongly and the many, many weeks that Fernando remained on Number 1 on Countdown. They were epic and I am so pleased thanks to film and stage and many revival acts the music of this amazing group remains strong today.
So thank you ABBA for the special memories and the amazing music and Kraft + for this fantastic February challenge.
