Cyber Crop- Hollywood theme

I'm very excited to tell you about something special going on at ARTastic this weekend. They're holding a cyber crop. It is Hollywood themed. How fun is that? I was asked to create a challenge for it. I just love my challenge and I hope you do too. Here it is:

Base your layout on the Hollywood Walk of Fame logo, using any number of the following criteria:
  1. Feature any of the words Hollywood, Walk, Fame.
  2. Use the colours of the logo: pink, gold, black and white.
  3. Use the design of the logo as a sketch.
  4. Use one giant star as the feature of your page.

I've use all of the colours in my layout. I very loosely followed the logo and I three different stars, as well as the title.

I really can't wait to see the entries for this.

Male 25th birthday card

I love playing along with the Stick it Down card sketch.

This month I have a special birthday to celebrate. My son turns 25. I will give this card to him on the weekend. I can't believe I became a Mother 25 years ago.  Wow, where did that time go?

18th birthday layout

 Hey, check out this layout I did of my son on his 18th birthday.  Isn't he a cool dude?

This page is my design inspiration for June's challenge at ARTastic this month.

Below is the window display we are taking inspiration from.

The photos of my son reminded me of the screen in the middle of the window display. I've used black, cream and gold and a nod to dressing up/fashion. I've also added a frame to one pic.

I've followed the design principle of the three, using 3 photos and allowing the eye to move along the page diagonally. 

Hope you can join us. You could do something really cool with this inspirational scene I'm sure.

I see leaves of green at Archi-scraps this month

 Hi there.

Singapore is a destination I have visited many times. It is a hub and a great stopover point from Perth, WA, where I live. It is also a wonderful place to go for lots of fun.

The Gardens by the bay are absolutely stunning and well worth spending a few hours at.

They are the inspiration for this month's Archiscraps challenge. 

On our 2019 trip to Borneo we spent a lot of time in rainforests. I could have shown you some pages on Gardens by the Bay for inspiration, but that's not what this Designer does. Here is my page.

The extra criteria you need to add to you layout is USE LOTS OF LEAVES AND GREENERY.

The photos have leaves, the background paper has leaves, I have added die cut leaves and punched out border leaves. Also the title features leaves and there is green everywhere. Criteria met.

What will you do? Please have a go and enter this month.
