Hello everyone and welcome to my first design team post for 2016. It is wonderful to be back and doing what I love at the same time as having a wonderful holiday season with my beautiful boys.

My post today is for 123 Challenge Blog and what a great one it is. Just like last year there are three requirements and to be eligible for a wonderful prize or to be guest DT you MUST use all three requirement. How easy is that? You design your own layout add three things and wella your there on the blog with all of us. 
When you go to the 123 Challenge Blog you will see different ways to use the requirements, different shades of the colour, different uses of the word and different ways to use the technique. Along with the other designers we hope we are able to inspire you.

 Colour: Yellow 
Word: Together 
Technique: Texture
 Here is a look at my creation, closeups and product details. The photo is one of my Grandfather and his ventriloquist doll (Friend & Companion).

For my layout I chose to use a light yellow so tie in with the background of my photo better. Plus my Grandpa was not a man surrounded in bright colours so much as just many colours. He was a very colourful person being a gardener with fields of beautiful flowers and some wonderful ones he bread himself and sold all over the world.
Anyway enough of that and on with my design. I will just list my products so there is not so much to for you to read.

Patterned Paper - Websters & Cosmo Cricket
Texture Paste
Distress Ink - Wild Honey & Gathered Twigs
Prima Stars Stencil

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my layout and I thank you for calling to all and never forget to tell those you love how much they mean. I hope your mojo flows and I look forward to seeing you at 123 Challenge Blog.  xxx
