DT Share: The Lake

I've been really enjoying scrapbooking summer to start this years creativity! And this Endless Summer Line from Cocoa Vanilla is just perfect for it!

Here I've put together the A and B sides of the Aloha Summer paper and the word art from the This and that paper with the Accessory Stickers, Flair, Woodies and Enamel shapes. I've used Thickers for my title and added a little washi tape and a line border with my black pen to finish

Our 1st Challenge for 2017!

Hello everyone and welcome to our first challenge!

Do you make a New Year Resolution?  or like me do you pick a word or quote to incorporate into your daily routine? 

This year I chose the quote "Don't try...Just do"   (sounds a bit like something Master Yoda would come up with ...... and yes boys out number me in this house! 😁)

This gave me the idea for our 1st challenge....Use a quote as a title

Any quote will do!  Here's my take...

I just adore this range from Cocoa Vanilla - Endless summer  I've tried to keep this layout fairly simple so the photo can be the highlight... KaiserMist in Aqua to reflect the gorgeous blue in the to love that shimmer!!

I've embellished Cocoa Vanilla Endless Summer, Accessory sheet and Blooms  and Kaisercarft Rhinestones 

You need to upload your layout into the Mystical Scrapbooks Gallery - here , or via linkup. Challenge closes at the end of January for your chance to win the prize, and this month prize is a Chipboard and paint pack.  

Have fun and I look forward to see what you come up with.

Gallery Pick

Check out these two companion pages were shared in our gallery by Mystical Scrapbooks owner Donna. I'm loving this combination of colours- they really give the feel of a warm spring day. The background she had made reflects the patterns and the flow of the water. I also love the minimal way she's added patterned paper to her pages- adding interest but keeping the focus on her lovely pages. It's a great idea too when you have two pages you want to make from the same occasion to carry the colour palette and some supplies across both pages. It's always good to see your pages Donna!

This very cool pocket page was shared in our gallery by Jazikt. I love the colour pallet she has used with muted blues and some greys. Choosing to make her main photo black and white really adds to the mood- giving the photo some age, that it doesn't have! Simple embellishing is absolutely all that's needed and is part of what makes a pocket page so fun and fast to put together. Thanks for sharing this pages with us Jazikt!
