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.
Ahhh coffee, the elixir of life! There is nothing quite so good as a quality coffee and I say quality because there are coffees and then there are coffees. One of the most memorable for my dh and I was the Cafe Al Bacio aboard the beautiful ship Celebrity Solstice which served amazing Italian coffee with the most mouth watering of patisserie morsels. We spent many a happy hour on the high seas, sipping slowly and indulging blissfully!
Enjoyed an hour to myself last night and managed to get a layout or two done for a couple of December challenges.
The first is for Scrapping Outback using this colour combination of white, red, green and a touch of blue.
I have had these photos in my photo file for years now never knowing quite what to do with them but when I saw this colour combination I just knew they would be a perfect match.
My son is the resident cake cook in this household and he decided to have a go at a Cupcake Tree for Christmas 2014. The icing was a little greener than he had planned but it all came our rather well and tasted delicious.
I have used a little chipboard heart (inked the heart part in red).
The mood board on Kraft + this month is just full of possibility ... do I use the colours, work with the shapes, take something from the theme? ... oh the decisions.
In the end I was really taken with the cushion and the pattern within the pattern. I picked up a few of the colours from these as well - the deep pink, green and brown and used a number of extra circles in the form of buttons and pearls around my scalloped design. The only kraft cardstock I currently have in my stash is the really pale variety but I figure kraft is kraft regardless of the colour tone.
