Hello ladies! I created this lo to enter into the August challenge over at Blue Fern Studios. I looooooooove their chipboard! 
 If the butterfly looks real, it's because.....it is! I went grocery shopping with my son the other night and right as we were entering the store I happened to look down and there she was lying on the ground, so I scooped her up on a piece of paper and brought her home. I suddenly thought she would look pretty on my lo...the colors are so pretty in the light....the beauty of nature.....
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! 
Until next time, hugs, Lisa XO

More info on the challenge, I believe it's open through the 31st.

Everyday....new layout for SATW

This lo is my entry for the August challenge at Scrap Around the World. I LOVED the mood board and sketch this month. I was inspired (obviously!) by the peach color in the mood board, I have never scrapped this color before, and the photo of all the jewelry and charms, so I added a few charms and rhinestones. I loved the sketch with the circles as well, I used some of Finnabair's prima clear circles which I loved how they looked. I also used Finnabair's Prima Sunrise Sunset paper which I just adore. I fiddled around with this for weeks, so I am kind of late, but there is still time to enter! Challenge closes tomorrow. Thanks for looking! Hugs, Lisa XO

August 2013 Challenge 4 - A Hauntingly Evocative & Enchanting Mood Board from Eila Sandberg


1.  You could be inspired by THE COLOURS - some of them, all of them, or one of them!

2.  You can use ANY colours & DO NOT need to follow the colours of the mood board at all
 if you are inspired by SOMETHING ELSE on the board instead.

3.  You can be inspired by any of the images, some of the images or all of them!

For example:-  you could use - Ruffles, chain, bling, rhinestones, clear dots, 
pearls, gold, glitter, hearts, metal embellishments, bows, silver, metallics, 
antique-inspired embellishments, jewelled clusters, leaves, feathers, berries, 
vines, twigs, twine, stickpins, flowers, ribbons, crochet, misting, confetti, sprinkles, 
gesso, vellum or ANYTHING ELSE that springs to mind when you look at the mood board.


How to use our sketches

Use our sketch as your staring point as we would like to see that it definitely inspired you!
  Feel free to 'make it your own' by flipping it, turning it, inverting it & moving things about if you like but  

You can also change the photo orientation & number of photos to be as few or as many as you like.


1.   Be inspired by ANY ASPECT of our mood board 
(this could be just ONE aspect, many aspects or EVERY aspect!)  
Let us know what inspired you unless it is obvious!
2.  Use our sketch as your starting point 
(We need to SEE that you started off with our sketch - 
no need to follow it entirely but please it needs to be visible in your layout).

3.  Both the sketch & mood board images
MUST appear in your challenge entry.

4.  You must mention in your post that you are playing along at 
Scrap Around The World & link back to us.

I was featured! Whoo Whoo!

And NOW...on to our TOP 3 Features!!
As mentioned, it was seriously NOT easy to narrow down our amazing entries this month to a Top 3. Such a talented group! But here we go...
The first talent we'd love to feature is:
Lisa Griffith
Lisa, there is just so much we love about this gorgeous layout! Your details are astounding- but what we love most is how your commanding title takes the stage here- just the right amount of black to pull the entire project together. We're so happy that Blue Fern Studios could lend a hand in making this stunning page SHINE! 
OOOOHHH I was so happy to see this this morning! Great way to start the week! Thanks Blue Fern Studios!!!
