Believe in Dreams

I have beem quite prolific in production of pages over the last week. I have had a week off work and it has been lovely being able to sit down and start and finish a page. I've thorougly enjoyed it. Also I have been able to take the time and go through a few of my drawers in my craft room and have been surprised at what I have had stashed for a long time. I think it is a good idea to have a drift through at various times to jog your memory at just what you have...amazing.
I have done a challenge for 123 Challenge Which include the colour  Mint....Tick.   Beads....Tick. And the word Believe...Tick.  I think that covers all areas. I was happy with the end result.

Birthdays are Just a Feather

This photo was taken when we were having a birthday celebration for Mel and Greg and  I really loved the glow from the candles on the vase of flowers.It gave the picture a lovely ambience.Lily is in the background waiting for her turn to blow out the candles.I felt that it lent itself to a pretty page. I have done so many boy pages lately that I struggled with pretty.Also I find circles a challenge. It's not called a challenge for nothing. I hope you like my take on it. If you visit my blog I would love you to leave a comment.I have done this challenge for Frosted Designs.

This shows the flower on the page which I have layered with a few colours and shapes and then spritzed with a pink that contrasts with the colours.

Real Good

What a good challenge for Scrap the Boys this month. Recycle  Re-use. How good is that. I had kept a McDonalds take away bag that I had emptied (Yummmmmm). It had a picture of a tractor on it and at the time I thought that it would make a good boy's page at some time or other and Scrap the Boys came up with the challenge.I have used some of the wording on the bag as a title and other pieces to make the bunting and  pieces of wording for comments and also for the pinwheels. No piece was left un-used. And then I also used a piece of check ribbon that I salvaged from some gift wrapping for a bit of backing. The hardest decision was what photo of Noah to use....I have quite a number to choose from.  He may well think that all grandma's have a permanent attachment of a camera on the end of their arm.
