This was a great challenge for me! I was thinking at first "I can't do this one!" I love the concept, but thought I would have nothing to contribute! I kept the mood board close by and kept looking at it, every once in a while!
Flicking through a bunch of photos I found this one of Granddaughter #2 (grandbaby # 7) and decided to give it a go! Rummaging around in my extensive stash, I was staggered at how much I had to add to the layout! As often does the photo does not really show up every detail BUT believe me there is heaps of "metal" on board!
Gold and bronze and metallic buttons galore; embroidered gold flowers scattered around; stems of gold beads; the daisy in the back of the floral clusters have been painted with tarnished brass Distress Stain; Sequins painted with silver Pigment Izink; Silver and White silver glittered, embossed stencilled hearts; silver tape; and splashers of Distress Mica Sprays brass, bronze and pewter, along with Bo Bunny Bronze glimmer Spray & a little bronze metal dragonfly and mini crown to top it off!
My home made item is the 2 floral clusters, which I loved putting together - flowers, ferns, leaves, bead stems, mini doilies tipped with Pigment Izink Ambre, kraft card, soft tuelle, metallic buttons, & white silver embossed hearts, gold embroidered flowers!!
So much precious metal; gold, silver, bronze, brass, pewter WOW! - I have surprised myself! Thanks for the challenging challenge, can't wait to see what they give us next time.

Scrapbook Top 50 November Challenge was a lovely sketch!!
Can I tell you a secret!? I had some beautiful pages that I did in a workshop with Kelly Ann Oosterbeek a few months back and the back side of the layouts were too nice to not use!! So here is one of them!
All the layouts are for my Childhood Album so they will fit well in the album! Save paper! and have fun trying to work around what I started with!! Such a challenge and kept me busy for some time!!!
Thanks for the challenge ST50OZ
Thanks Kelly Ann for some great back of layout pages !!

I love watercolour although I am not too good with it!!
It was a lovely challenge to dabble a bit more and I have used some wonderful products I have and hoping that you think it is affective!
I wish I had taken a photo of the first layout I did!?!?! UUUGGGLLLLYYYY
So I decided to cut it all up and used those elements on a second layout and Voila!! Ta-da!! I think it hits the brief well!
At Jayde's Auntie and Uncle's Wedding she fell in love with the Photo Booth! This is just THREE of an amazing amount of poses,...
