Here's a layout for Bird is the word this month using the word share.I've used scrapmatts leaves plus a fancy clip I recently received as a prize from another web site.(see I do appreciate my prizes!!!)
I love this colour green and it worked out well the 3 "boys" were all wearing the same colour.
"The eyes are the windows to the soul" is a favourite quote of mine. I had chipboard saying that, so used glimmer mist to create the heading.The hydrangea paper matched the colours in the photo and the lace & buttons also complemented it.On my layout the lace is flat down,it flipped up in the scanner.

This layout looks dark because it is! I chose butterfly patterned craft card then misted with blue glimmermist.I sewed a piece of blue denim containing a pocket,where I have hidden my journalling.The story behind this was the fabric butterfly arrived while Christopher was there, so he put it on his finger and balanced on his nose for fun. He looked so cute I took these photos.
123's challenge this month was white on white plus the word "on".I've made a layout using various laces,some cut from a wedding dress.Also I used scrapmatts ornate frame,lampost and signboards all painted white.Sheet music and white shiny cardstock complete the picture.I've left white space to the top and left of the photo.

One of the criteria was to hand make an embellishment so I drew a gondola and striped pole which are so common in Venice.

My daughter was trying to stop me from taking her photo so I took one of her ear instead.(Just for fun).

This month's Artastic challenge required blue paper with white flowers. I searched a few scrapbooking shops and this was the closest I could find.The paper is a blue/grey(petrol) colour with blue and white flowers. I used several strips of paper to get some blue into this layout plus fabric covered buttons from TPC studio.Finally a touch of silver ribbon to bring in the magical quality.Even though it is floral, I think the boy quality is there.
