Look at this awesome inspiration picture Show Us Your Stuff
is using for their May 1st Challenge
Using some new D-Lish goodies I received recently.
The resin flowers - these are such good value,
if you buy them in a grab bag $1 for 25 assorted colours.
Tell me that isn't a bargain!
and this funky printed bottle top, which I took to with a hammer
to flatten it out a little. ;)
and of course if i'm using D-Lish embellishments I can't go past the washi
tape. There are so many designs to choose from and i'm always thinking of different ways
to use it. So on this layout I made a border around the layout with small strips
and then because it looked a little too bright for what I was after I finger painted some white paint over the top of the washi.
The sponsor this month at Show us You Stuff is Charms Creations. Charm
sent the Design team a gorgeous pack of lollipops so these
are my handmade item on this months layout.
As for my inspiration I used the book theme and journalled about
my eldest son finally discovering joy in reading for pleasure.
And not just something he has to do as
homework! He's going through books so fast these
days I can't keep up, such a pleasure to see as a parent.
I also used some old book paper and black as my base as per the black
border in the inspiration picture.
Head on over to the SUYS blog and check out the other DT samples.
Lots of fabulous layouts to inspire you.
I still have a part three post coming with the rest or most of the rest of my retreat layouts.
So keep your eye out for that,
Cheers for now. :)
