Challenge #318 - Mood Board

Hello, everyone! Lori here with this week's challenge. This week we have a fabulous mood board to inspire you:

There are so many things to take inspiration from - the colors, banners, triangles, stars, fruit, donuts, stripes, teacups, circles...the possibilities are endless!

Here is a look at what the design team has created:

I was inspired by the colors and the overall party feel of the mood board.


I was inspired by the first quote and the buttons!

The colours were the first thing that caught my eye with this moodboard, and those with some of the images made me immediately think of birthdays and all the bright, fun colours and patterns of a birthday celebration. Check out my scrappy blog for some more up close photos and details. 

The Impossible quote immediately made me think of my daughter when she was at the end of her 8th grade year and decided to try out for the high school colorguard/winterguard team.  I wasn't even sure she would make it through tryouts and now she is entering her senior year and this will be her 3rd year as a say I am immensely proud of her is an understatement...

I chose to use the colors as inspiration for my card.  

How will the mood board inspire you? We would love to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Challenges #317: Inspired by a Song

Hi and thanks for joining us to check out and hopefully play along with our new challenge!  and it is.... Create a project that is inspired by a song title, line, or is the theme of the project (ie concert, etc)
Post your project with the linky below.
Perfect timing for me  as I have just been to see Journey and Def Leppard in concert.
Have loved them both for over 30 years! (yes showing my age haha!)

For this project, I was inspired by the Van Halen song, "Jump."  So I decided to feature a picture of my girls jumping into my pool at the start of their summer break when they were little.

For this challenge I used a song title from my all time favorite group, Fleetwood Mac.  My darling hubby and I have been married for 30 years as of June 11, 2018 and I will never stop loving him!


I would say probably 85% of my scrapbook layouts are inspired by a song! I am constantly using lyrics, titles, etc for my layouts! For this one of my pregnant with my first child in 2012 I used the lyrics "pretty smile" from Carrie Underwood's song Cry Pretty as my subtitle.

I created my title with a little help from Coldplay and their song Rainy Day.

Challenge #316 - Magical

Hey guys!  Heather this week's challenge has a bit of a "magical"theme...and anyone who knows me, knows that means I am going to do a Disney layout!  Of course you can do anything you like...Harry Potter, wizards, unicorns, mermaids...whatever is magical to you!

I ended up doing some hidden journaling on my layout because I had a very specific story I wanted to tell and wanted to make sure I had enough room.  You can read more about that on my blog as well as find a little more "magical" inspiration ;)

For now here is my layout and some magical inspiration from the Design Team as well!

This is my favourite magical place - Disney World! 


Our first visit to Disney was definitely magical! These were two of the first things we saw.

I have created a card using a magical unicorn.

For this challenge, I created a 4 x 6 mixed media page for my art journal featuring a hand colored image of Princess Tiana with fairy wings.

Butterflies in my clusters 


I used butterflies in my pictures, the papers, and embellishments featured on this page.


Used some die cut butterflies to accent this layout!
