Anchors away ...

Joining in with Unruly Paperarts where their challenge this month is a NAUTICAL theme with the inclusion of  Red, White, Blue, Silver and Black.

I have made just a simple card using a Stampin Up stamp, cardstock and patterned paper.  A great card for a masculine birthday.

Loving ladybirds ...

When I saw this little moodboard image over on Scrapbook Boutique I sort of fell in love .... like who wouldn't?  these are just so cute.

I love ladybirds, we used to see lots of them when I was a child.  They'd land on my arms sometimes when I was playing outside and I would shake them off saying the old nursery rhyme of Ladybird, ladybird, Fly away home, Your house is on fire, And your children all gone ...

You don't see so many these days - I guess urban living, pesticides etc have made them less prevalent but I still love those tiny ladybirds.

White with 1 - just peachy ...

White with 1 has a pretty colour combination this month ..

peach puff

and I had to think a little bit about how I would use this on my layout.  Finally I came up with documenting a family favourite and sweet treat.

An ARTastic October ...

This month on ARTastic we hope to inspire you with this beautiful painting by E Phillips Fox called The Green Parasol (1912)


Here is my take this month ...

I loved the soft feel of this artwork and it's setting within a garden with lots of beautiful blooms in evidence which I have tried to replicate on my page.  This is a gorgeous vintage photograph of my Aunt when she was 3 years old and I totally love everything about it - from the bow in her hair to the little shoes on her feet.

 We'd love to see your new paper, digital, mixed media or off the page entries.  You have until 11.55pm on October 31st, 2015 to play along with us
