Scrap the Boys - May 2015

Pound the Pavement was the phrase given on Scrap the Boys to use as an inspiration for a layout.

I had these sweet (or should I say RAD) photos of my boy Ben that I have been wanting to use since I took them late last year. These seemed a perfect subject for this months challenge. I even used the phrase in my journaling.

Please excuse the photography of my layout I was in a little bit of a rush. It is straight in real life and not cut off at the bottom. :)

Stuck Sketches May 1

Another awesome sketch from Stuck Sketches.
This time I have chosen to scrap a fab selfie I took of my bestie and I after we had lunch to celebrate our birthdays.
I blew out the circle element with my floral wreath because I just had to feature it. The floral wreath is cut from a large shopping bag I got when I made a purchase at a Japanese department shop (Takashimaya) in Singapore. I fell in love with the vintage style roses and colours the minute I had the bag passed over to me in the shop and I knew I would use this in a future layout. I found a lot of the Maggie Holmes embellies fitted in so well with the colours and were a match made in heaven.

Jot - May Challenge

The challenge for this month is beautiful (like all of them really) and I had just the right photo sitting on my desk waiting patiently to scrap. Love this pic of my mum and son taken last year. It was a beautifully sunny Winter's afternoon and we were in my parents courtyard.  A loving moment captured forever.

My inspiration from the mood board was the diamond rings (I could only afford to use diamant√©), the colours of course, I feel the polka dots and flowers give it a retro/vintage feel, the clock to represent the circular motif (also a moment in time) and lastly silver that I have slipped under my photo mat. The silver is contact paper I picked up at Coles a few months ago. They had heaps of sparkly contacts in time for back to school so I grabbed a silver and a gold roll. Very sparkly.

Thanks for having a look.
