Ruff life

Hello!  I have some catching up to do ... I am squeezing in some last minute challenges for this month :) :)

At Off The Rails they had a couple of mood boards to choose from ...
I went with this one:

and created this:


Most of those strips are the branding strips from off the bottom of papers!  Yeah, I keep them!  I was actually amazed how many fit this colour scheme :D .... there are some washi strips in there too ...


See the awesome Charms Creations star??  I'm Guest Designing for Charm at the moment which is SO exciting!!!!!!!  LOVE her stars in particular - SO perfect for boy pages!!!!!

Thanks for visiting today ... have a great week!
I'll be back with more challenge pages soon :)

WOW challenge

Words or Whatever have such a cool challenge this month!
All those who wanted to play along were send some chipboard in the mail to create whatever we liked!

Here's my entry:

The chippy pieces are the hearts,



the word FAMILY and the frame (cut in half to create the bracket shapes)


I always find pics of groups of people difficult to scrap, so I was glad for this challenge :)

Thanks for visiting.
Have a great weekend!
