The Best things in life aren’t things (K+ challenge Sept '17)


Good afternoon all,
As I mentioned in the previous post, I've had just a wee bit extra time this month and this is the first time I’ve entered a Kraft + (plus) inspiration challenge – and this September 2017 challenge has been just so much fun 😊.  The theme is “what’s the buzz” all about “b’s”  and here is the prompt:
For my LO, I’ve used this beautiful “bee” photo from a fabulous day early this year, spent at Spring Bluff.

My darling loving hubby (dlh) and I went for an "adventure" and we discovered Spring Bluff (a train station) about 2 hours drive from our home. We also found a yummy cafe, sunflowers and ‘bees’ 😊
Supplies

·     Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst (steampunk sepia)
2 Crafty Designs chipboard (beauty and arrows)
the best things in life aren't things

LIFE is Precious - WW1 September 2017 challenge

Gidday all,


I can hardly believe have some time to participate in an extra challenge (or maybe 2?) lol.


I didn't know the colour of the September White With One (WW1) challenge when I decided to buy the beautiful kit from The Resin Rainbow, but once I saw the beautiful SOUL PEA colour of the kit when it arrived I knew this photo would be perfect! I'd had both the Black and White, and the colour photos printed for when 'just the right' challenge came along :)
Here's this month's WW1 mood board - also perfect for my childhood photo.

Supplies
  •  The Resin Rainbow September SOUL PEA colour kit (bespoke flowers, circle fabric, ribbon, twill, resin rose

  • Kaiser paper (Basecoat IV, scraped)


     so here is the finished LO, after all the teasing LOL 
thanks for visiting today.... 
till next time... 
hugs 'n' hearts xxx Mazz xxx

Quote of the Day

butterfly kisses

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
