A few monthly challenges....

Ok well since its getting close to the end of the month i thought it was a bout time I uploaded some layouts I have done for challenges!!! I haven't completed as many this month but here we go!!!
This one is of me...shock horror!!! and No!! its not meant to be my cranky face!!!! Just my serious face!
Last week when i created this I was feeling a litlle lost ....just wasn't happy with who I was, what I was doing, my expectations on myself.....you know how we get sometimes!!! So I saw this quote in a local cafe and I wanted to remind myself of it! I can't say I love this layout but anyhow......here is my"White with one " challenge.
The challenge is to use white with kraft and layering.....
The quote reads..
"I am braver than I believe
Stronger than I seem and
smarter than I think.."

The next challlenge I did was for "Scrap the boys". After doing the above layout I wanted to change up my style a little bit so I went all arty farty and I must say I am REALLY happy with it!!!
Lots of texture, modelling paste, paint and mists, washi tape and stamping!!!
 These are Will's school shoes that he picked himself this year....with the help of daddy!!! Not my choice I must say!!! But he thinks they are ultra cool!!!
The criteria was to use RED!!! (yah!) "Life's Good as a title and handwritten journalling....
Here's my journalling....
 I also had a play to create this one. Not for any challenges but just to have some fun! Used lots of old scraps of paper and bits n pieces and more modelling paste and of course washi tape!!! If anyone wants to buy washi tape I found the best place and the cheapest is by fair at D-Lish scraps. check it out!
Thanks for popping by! Ebx

Wow Eb. These are both just fabbo. Love the grungy feel to both. And the arty farty background is soooo cool. Gotta love boys shoes when they have been handpicked. You should see the footy boots. Well they are so bright you probably can.
