Gorgeous is the Snow

Hello and welcome to my blog and my DT post for Off The Rails. It is now the middle of the month and there is still plenty of time to get your craft on with this awesome moodboard we have for you.
So many options with this one and I chose the snow and colour but maybe you will just choose the snow or the colour. What ever it is that appeals to you in the moodbard will make a stunning page I'm sure. So please after you leave my blog hop on over to Off The Rails and join in the fun with us.
Now for the moodboard

The beautiful snow patterned papers I chose including the background words page are by BoBunny. I love the colours of these papers and they were perfect for the challenge.

A Special Bond

Hello and welcome to my blog. I would like to share with you today my DT page created for this months challenge over at A2Z Scraplets. Like each month it is a great mood board and I'm sure you will like it so make sure you join in with us over on the Facebook challenge page.

I chose too take my inspiration from the colour and also the shape but for that I used a stencil which was a little different. I used stencil and modeling paste which I coloured blue in my background. 
Now for my take....

The photo was taken last year at my sons graduation. I was so proud of him and he looked so handsome. It was such a special night with a beautiful dinner, speeches, certificates and photos.
A night i will never forget.

To do my A2Z Scraplets Chippies I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst. On the title I used Bachelor Button Blue and for the circle with the flourish I used Tibetan Poppy Teal. Both of these colours were perfect for the challenge. 

 Some of the products I used beside the two amazing A2Z Scraplets chippies were -
Prima Flowers
Modeling paste
Journal Pen
Dylusions Ink

The splatters in the background were created using the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst. I just love the effect they give to the background.

Thanks so much for stopping in and I look forward to seeing your creations over at A2Z Facebook.
