(Dusty Attic DT - May Mood Board
+ My Creative Scrapbook May Sketch)

Hello all! I hope that the month of May is treating you well so far!

I would like to share with you today my page inspired
by the beautiful May mood board from The Dusty Attic.

Here is the May mood board with its lovely colour palette!

Along with this mood board, I was also inspired by the

These soft and feminine colours and the elegant sketch put me in a romantic mood
so I chose to create a page with a love theme and photos of me and my partner.

I picked a title that fit my sentiment beautifully, and I colored it
with lilac embossing powder and added white paint and a bit
darker purple distress stain to create a dual coloured effect. 

On the Mystic Frame #2 behind my photos, I used blue embossing
powder sporadically leaving some bare parts which I then dabbed in white
paint and then used different blue and purple distress stains for a marble look.

I treated the Door Handle Plate (above) as well as the Hour Glass and Word Play #4 (below) 
with white paint and just a tad bit of distress stains to keep them soft and subtle.

I absolutely love adding butterflies to my pages! Who doesn't!?
And of all the gorgeous chipboard butterflies that Dusty Attic has
designed over the years, the Flutterbies #3 set is my favorite.

Here is one last look at my page and the arrangement of chippies, flowers 
and other decorative elements that I used to frame my mini photos.

Here are all the Dusty Attic chipboard designs I used on my layout.

Door Handle Plates - DA0681

I hope I was able to inspire you a bit today. Keep creating! :)

(Dusty Attic DT)

I have a brand new The Dusty Attic-filled layout to share with you today!

For this page, you can see that I was in a romantic shabby chic mood,
from the Scrapberry's patterned paper background to the elegant
chipboard pieces that I chose to accentuate the love theme.

The title Love Eternally, both words taken from separate packs, 
seemed very fitting. I also added a quote from the Quoted Sentiments #1 set.

I kept everything soft and pretty, treating my chipboard pieces
with embossing powders in white, pink and brown.
Above, amid the flower cluster, you can see the pretty Hibiscus blooms,
and below, a few pieces from the Ornate Pendants collections.

I thought the Ornate Pendants #3 would look particularly pretty
to go along with the cute little birdies on my photo and the Mini Sparrows.

I decided to tuck a Designer Disc #5 Script behind my picture
on which I perched one of the Mini Sparrows.  All the Designer Discs
are an absolute must have from the Dusty Attic line!

I hope that my page gave you that 'lovin' feeling'!

Here is a closer look at all the Dusty Attic chipboard included.

(More Than Words DT - May Main Challenge)

Oh yes! The beautiful month of May is here!
And that means a brand new Main Challenge at More Than Words!

Here is the May challenge board from More Than Words.
Word Inspiration - WEEKEND
Creative Challenge - MULTIPLE PHOTO

You can find all you need to know about this challenge and the fabulous prizes
up for grabs as well as inspiration from the very talented MTW DT right HERE.

I am usually very content to spend WEEKENDS at home with my boyfriend doing absolutely nothing and being completely antisocial. However, I always enjoy spending some time visiting with our nieces. These photos were taken during a trip to the zoo where we had such a great time. MULTIPLE PHOTOS for multiple fun!

I wanted to create a fun layout with bright bold colours
to document this fun moment spent with the girls.

I combined some filmstrip and photo viewer chipboard to go along with the creative theme.

I added a couple cute cameras and some buttons.

The focal point of my page is this fabulous selfie we took together!

Hopefully you will play along with us at More Than Words!

(Dusty Attic DT - April Mood Board)

Hello people! I have a very bright and fun layout for you today!

My layout was inspired by the similarly bright April mood board from The Dusty Attic.

With this sunny colour palette as well as the beautiful image in mind,
I found a photo of my nieces taken during their visit to Florida in 2005
which I found matched the theme and colours quite well.

I created the title Crazy Silly Fun using the Word Packs #13 and #16.

I created a geometric tile design on my page by tucking 3 of
the Elegant Frames behind the photo. I colored them with 2 different
shades of purple markers and then sprayed on a little white mist.

I used the same markers on the Page Pebbles and the title as well.

I used white embossing powder on the Machine Parts
to make them pop against the colorful background and paper layering.

Finally, here is a close up of my 2 favorite girls being adorable and... silly!

Here are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used on my page.

Elegant Frames - DA0869
Machine Parts #1 - DA1934
Page Pebbles #4 - DA1108
Page Pebbles #10 - DA1115
Word Pack #13 - DA1269
Word Pack #16 - DA1272
