Favourite colour and scrap an affirmation challenges

The first challenge on Shimelle's month of colour prompts was to record your favourite colour, I posted some photos of mt favourite colour here. I made this page after I'd been to the final lesson for the SDU course. We were arranging our crop that is included in the course and played with the Cricut again. I had this page in mind for the crop so we cut out the pieces I was going to use, unfortunately I couldn't wait so I've finished it. I'll now have to find another picture to use.
The page fits a couple of challenges (by accident rather than design), firstly it's in my favourite colours green and brown so fits Shimelle's challenge to scrap you favourite colour.
The second is challenge 3 on the journalling challenges blog and that was to scrap an affirmation.
Credit for the photo goes to Anna Bowkiss, this was taken on the recent Scrapping Angels retreat.

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
