Not so black and white.....

Well not with these layouts I have to share anyway! Its colour all the way... a rainbow of coluor!!!!!!
I had seen quite a few artwork pieces on pinterest lately with rainbows on them and I also saw a stunning layout but the talented Steph Caskey-Devlin that totally inspired me.! I hope Steph doesn't mind!?
So I decided to do this layout......... Its is based on a sketch by Bekky Fleck (page maps) and a challenge over on the Aussie scrap source blog. You can check it out here! The challenge is to use repetiton in your design.
                                                          This is the sketch!
               Here is my layout "Dream in Color"...... Yes I know, I havent used a "U"! I ran out! So it is the American spelling!
I used various colors of Mister Huey's mists and brushed them onto my cardstock which I had randomly spread some modelling paste to...(surprise, surprise!).
Can you also spot my other favourite goodies?? 
Yep, my all time favourite Lil Red Rocket button!!! The red heart!!!

                                       And of course a heavenly heart by "Charms creations"

I loved this technique so much I decided to create another! This time for a post over on the 
"Lil Red Rocket " Blog!
This is a layout of my nephew Jack.

I really had wanted to use these journalling tags as they have cute little images of cars and trucks but I just couldn't get it to work!!! BUT I loved the border and colour on these so I just used them like photo matts instead!!! See you can always make things work even if they are not the right theme!!!! LOL!

LOVE these traffic and helicopter buttons! Perfect for boys of all ages!!!

My next layout is for this months Scrap the Girls Challenge.
The challenge is a quote........

"Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. 

You know whatever you do, they'll still be there." Amy Li

So as you know you cant use photos of boys, and I couldn't find a photo of my sister and I.
So at a retreat recently I finally got to meet the beautiful Donna White, and she had given me this photo of her gorgeous girls to scrap. So here is my entry....
I must admit this didn't turn out as well as I had hoped :( 
I found it hard fitting in such a long quote!!!

And lastly here is a layout that I created as part of the monthly colour challenge on the Crate paper blog. Unfortunately when I completed this and didn't submit in time......oops! Oh well. I have this layout in my collection. 

And of course I used some more "Lil Red Rocket" cuteness!!!!

Well Thanks for stopping by.
