Bright Beauties Avaari & Ziah

Well when I saw Scrapbooking Outback's,  White with a Twists Challenge for July,
I was over the moon!  Those colours are magical!!

So I began with a very cute photo of my granddaughter sucking her toe while sitting in her highchair!!!   The bright colours lent itself to her brightness of being able to get that foot up and toe into her mouth!!! 

I was having so much fun with the Ranger  Dylusions ink sprays!!! calypso teal & fresh lime in particular!!!  

So today I had a visit from my niece Cassie, who was wanting to practice her face painting skills for an upcoming fair she is going to be painting at!   Ziah was first up and he picked the Ninja Turtle face painting!!
Well oh my goodness me! when I saw the finished product I could not resist doing another layout in these beautiful colours!!!
So I am not sure which one I prefer so I am hoping to add both of them to this months Challenge! 

Hoping you like them, as much as I had fun creating them today!!!


  1. Wow Karen...the colours are perfect, so creative! Yep its really hard to pick a fav, love them both!

  2. Karen - BOTH of these are just gorgeous!!! I agree the colour combo is perfect :) I cant pick either, so definitely add both the the challenge if you want :)
    Thank you so much for playing along this month - so glad we could inspire you :)

  3. Of all the layout challenges I did this month this was definitely my favourite! I loved experimenting with the bright colours!! Thanks again!!

  4. wow Karen! you sure have gone the extra mile with these two... they are both lovely... I think my fave (with no bias) is the 2nd one with the painted face...also goes with the theme of getting messy. perfect colours and the chippies you've used are also perfect. thanks SO much for joining us this month at SO :)
