Colour Challenge No. 06

Happy Halloween! Things are a little low key as my elephant (spencer) & penguin (makenna) rest up for a big afternoon/evening of trick or treating. This is the first year that Spencer REALLY understands the whole concept & is so flipping excited! Makenna is just along for the ride. :)

So it has been awhile since we have run a colour challenge so i thought, hey today is the day. The colour scheme is not halloweeney at all ... but fun. Well i think so. :)

And here is my page:

Some fun products from the DD Store:

Be sure to link us up to your layout & I will post them for us all to enjoy next week!

Gallery Inspiration

Sorry it has been so long since my last post ... lots of things going around here at our household. Some good, some crummy & some exciting!

Here are some pages i have fallen in love with recently!

This page by Lisa (lpate) to announce the birth of her adorable little man is amazing. Check out how she used a tag in one spot instead of a piece of paper, pretty cool eh? And the stitching ... well you all know i love it! I am so excited to watch this little man grow.

This page is a beautiful example of matching products with theme. By doing this Lori has not only reinforced her theme but helped to showcase her stunning photos. Makes me want to pick berries too ... next summer!

Amber is one of my all time favourite scrappers & when i saw this page in the gallery my jaw dropped. I love the details she has added to her page here - the scissors, the stitching (included the stitching on the frame she chose), the sewing machine, the measuring tape. Again all of these things help to re-enforce her theme perfectly! Hoping Amber is feeling inspired to do more pages about her as well. :)

Melissa is a friend of mine from highschool, we've been in eachothers weddings, waited anxiously while eachother were in labour & have hubby's who happen to be pretty great friends too! So the fact that she is diving into digital scrapbooking like she is makes my heart sing! The pages she is creating these days are beautiful and she has most definitely found her style. Clean, a bit perfectly placed details, amazing photography (which i may have taken advantage of once or twice!) and most importantly she is adding the words to her pages as well. Well done my friend!

Heidi is another friend i went to highschool with, so glad she saw my pages on facebook then started diving into digital + Designer Digitals. Her daughter Lana my Spencer are only a few days apart so it is really fun to get them together! On this page i love the softness that the taped photo masks add here. The layering of her stack of papers are such a nice detail here as well!

Crissy has such a way with creating a cool, vintage look to her scrapbook pages. She has such a knack for mixing up products for a one of kind look. I love the colours here with her great photos. Such a cool perspective on them isn't it?

Hoping you feel a little inspired by these masterpieces!

Copy Cat Challenge #61

Hello everyone, sorry it's taken me so long to post another Copy Cat Challenge. I've been feeling overly tied the last week or so, so I haven't been on the computer that much. Tonight I bring you a layout by EHStudios. I love the simple design and the use of her embellishments. I know right away that I was going to do a layout on Addison's love for OWLS :) I hope you are just as inspired as I am. Don't forget to link us up to your layout in the comments field. I will post everyone's pages next week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend : ) - Tara

Creative Challenge #58

Hello everyone! Today i bring you some inspiration with a new challenge for you to try.

- One photo
- Two pieces of patterned paper
- Three pieces of solid coloured paper
- Four word title (or a 4 letter title!)
- Five or more pieces of stitching
- Six or more staples

Here is my page that i did based on this challenge! My hubby went through a beard growing stage recently & said he wouldn't shave until he passed this first test (he started college in September). He was sad about shaving but a deal is a deal ... so i thought he deserved his own page to ease the pain.

Don't forget to link us up to your page!
