The bright side of life

Well Case file 31 is up at CSI.
It's a gorgeous super bright inspiration image.
I didn't know at first if I could pull of this colour palette.
But I did it and love the results.
You should definitely give it a go.
Here is the case file:

Here is my DT example for the case:

For my evidence I used:

  • Wood: I have toothpicks on my page- one has a washi flag on it, then another has a cocktail umbrella on it.
  • Liquid medium: pink paint around edge of page. Then watered it down to mist it onto page.
  • Distressing: Around the edge of page.
  • Use repetition of an element: repetition of the majority of my embellishments- multiple felt chevron strips, 3 of the same prima flowers in different colours, repeated two types of washi in multiple places on the page, 3 cocktail parasols used o the page and 2 felt pinwheels.
  • Umbrella accents: When I saw the case file I imagined myself sitting there sipping a cocktail! Then I saw the umbrella criteria and put two and two together. Hence the cocktail umbrellas on my page!

For my testimony I used:

  • Begin your journalling with, "the key to ____ is"... :My journalling starts with "the key to happiness is"
  • Use repetition in your journalling: I repeated the word the word "life" 3 times in my journalling.
  • Inspiration words: colour, bright, vacation : I used the inspiration words colour and bright to inspire my journalling. 
  • My journalling reads: "The key to happiness is to always look on the bright side of life. Madeline, life may get tough but never forgot the amazing aspects. Madeline, circumstances and situations do colour life but you have been given the mind to choose what the colour shall be xo"

Products used:
American crafts patterned paper and alphas
Kaisercraft mini alphas
Sam and lucy phrase sticker

Manor house creations flower

Queen Madeline

Happy Friday to you all! Perhaps you are like me and have found the year has flown by!? There is just not enough hours in the day for me at the moment. I certainly would love a few more each day for scrapping.
I'm quite a slow scrapper. If I'm short on time and want to get a layout done I often scrap lift one of my old favourites.
I have done a few of those recently Smile 

I decided this month for my challenge at SBT50 to make you a sketch out of one of my old favourite designs, it's a quick and easy one and the page design flows well.

Here is the sketch for the challenge. 
Feel free to add stuff, or skip stuff in the sketch. Interpret as you wish, but I would like to see the bones of the sketch there. I have one extra criteria for you: use at least one handmade embellishment.

I hope you will all pop on over here and give the challenge a go. There is a voucher from wicked princesses up for grab for the winner of the challenge. While you are there be sure to check out Ant's technique challenge and Vicki's quote challenge.

Here is my example layout:

Products used:
Basic Grey and American crafts patterned paper
Prima flower
Sam and Lucy alphas
Evalicious badge
D-lish scraps washi tape
Shimmerz coloringz
Shimmerz blingz
Rainbow splendour- Mini book paper envelopes, heart pop, book print pinwheel, felt tags, Mini pinwheel and felt butterfly.
Acrylic paint
Helmer's scrap dots
