Heritage layout using a frame.

When we were in Prince Edward Island we visited an old historic home.
It inspired me to use a frame I've had for ages which I inked.

I tore a scrap of brown paper and added some vintage lace that I had. 
I fussy cut around the pocket watch and  mounted it. I also added a maple leaf and fleur de lis.

Paper Issues Take 5 challenge.

Pick 5 of the following items and create a paper project! Feel free to add anything else you need.
rhinestones, the word "boo", washi, a pumpkin, large title, border, stars, yellow, ampersand, stitching, tag, doily

As I'm in Australia, and Halloween is a non event, I'm carefully working around that.
I've used a doiley ,yellow and star brads, an ampersand and a tag.
The background paper was extremely busy so I kept my additions as simple as possible.

4 crafty chicks

4 crafty chicks  is having a pink challenge for Breast Cancer awareness.

I've made a pink (and yellow) with silver washi tape Thank You card.
(That's the end of the plaid paper!)

Sketches in thyme

Sketches in Thyme has this sketch which I have turned 90 degrees.

I've used my forged paper from Counterfeit kit as one of my background papers.
The other is the offcut from the previous plaid challenge.

With the grey background, I think it works .
I also added a coaster that the Fairmont hotels had in our rooms as I wanted something circular for the bottom corner. 
Luckily among my Canada stickers there was a 3D biosphere on the Montreal sheet. There is also a FWAB vine because I wanted to add a plant element.
Here's a close up of that corner.

Had fun doing this one and everything was from my kit.

Challenge #1 What is your superpower?

Image result for superwoman images

We are asked what is our scrapbooking superpower?

Thinking about it, I actually have 2.

Apart from being a fast scrapbooker, I also can layer well and recycle quite a deal of items.

For this layout, I started with a paper from my kit with cassettes on it. (wanted something with red)
The grey and white card is a recycled ticket folder. It is also flipped to become the silver mats for 2 of the photos
Next I added a small scrap of pastel card from packaging of my ephemera.

I punched a couple of border strips in the same red card as I used on the left.
The arrows were added to emphasise the height of the tower and the sticker of the tower was added on that.
My final 3 embellishments are the red cloth maple leaf, the camera, and "fun".
My title is SMILE.
In total, 5 layers in some parts.

Challenge YOUrself and More than words challenges. wants us to create our own background

AND More than words challenge wants splats and Leisure.

With that all introduced, I began.

Of course it is another of my photos from my trip.
This moose was outside a shop in Mt Tremblant which is a ski town near Quebec.

I started by splattering the background, there are 4 different colours. The fourth one is white and in reality it shows up on the cream bazzil. One large blob appeared but I left it as it gives it interest.
My photo is mounted on navy then a scrap of vellum. The word leisure appears in my long title.

The flair is a little joke "born to be wild". The toy moose wasn't very wild but I did have to wrangle with it to get a decent photo.
