My take

Imaginarium are sponsors this month at  Scrap Around The World


The D T girls have created some stunning layouts based on 

the current Mood Board & optional sketch.

 I really enjoyed trying to capture the mood board with such lush colours
 This is my take
I have used texured paste and glimmer mist on my background paper 

 I have used papers from Meg's Garden
My Ode to summer Collection and Dreaming in the Meadows
hope on over and check out the other girls beautiful layouts

behind the dome

I thought I would revisit and share a project I started earlier in the year I have 98% finished it so thought it was about time I shared it. I loved creating this and it sits beautifully on my Chiffonier.

I have used a combination of my designs from different collections all papers available from Meg's Garden

I also have used my favorite chipboard Imaginarium

Finding it difficult to believe we are already in November and less than seven weeks to Christmas.
Where am I going to put the Christmas tree and what am I going to put under it this year, each year it gets harder as they are all grown up and slightly different its at this time of the year I miss the excitement of when they were little.
Trying to get into the spirit of things I thought I might create some Christmas pages and trying to get the Christmas Album to look good, I am amazed at how many photos are missing thought I took some each year,

I used a heat and stick embossing powder which heat sets the glitter on to the chipboard, combined it with texture paste on a stencil to give a little dimension all combined with my leaves, from the die, leafy foliage with left over paper .
 I used papers from the Tis Christmas Collection,Christmas Decorations, and Christmas Flowers
This card I will be teaching at the shop in December

 yes more photos of my daughters dance album

I used
La Blanche stamps available at Meg's Garden
Imaginarium Chipboard
