The challenge at 123 Challenge this month was to use: The word MAN/MEN, colour grey & metal.
Here is my layout.
This challenge got off to a slow start - just couldn't get any inspiration. Then I came across this photo from Bangkok. The detail & colours in the tiling of the Stupas's was amazing. Especially when they have been there for hundreds of years. I have used a couple of metal elements, lots of buttons and a gorgeous Charms heart.
Thanks for the challenge Charm. I love how I had to think outside the box, and I really like what I came up with!

I haven't done a challenge over at Kraft it Up for quite a while but when I saw this months colour challenge I couldn't resist!!
Absolutely my colour pallet.
We had High Tea (which is becoming a very lovely habit) at Gunner Barracks on Sydney Harbour. Afterwards we decided we needed a photo of us together, so we tried to take some "selfies". We laughed so much and we just could co-ordinate it at all. This photo turned out great but there were many many more that just had to be deleted!!!!
I have used paint & texture paste, mist, items from D'lish scraps and the big flower, flag and button are from A lil somethin. Just love this layout - the colours, lots of flowers and special friends.
Another fabulous photo of Jess and Mikala. This one was taken at another friends 18th. They really are gorgeous girls. As soon as I saw that the challenge for Black with 2 for this month was Purple and Mint Green, I knew that this was the photo.
I have used lots of paint and texture paste, a FWAB flourish, some D-lish flowers. I really like this layout.
It's a pity the colour has gone a bit wonky in the photo!!!
This month over at Scrap the Girls the challenge was for Action or Sports pictures. This photo is of my daughters netball team. They were undefeated minor premiers, but lost the grand final - by 1 goal!!!!! I haven't seen a more intense game of netball for a long time. This is the girls as they were waiting for the presentation. Although they lost they should be so proud of themselves.
I used paint and texture paste and used the net from a bag of oranges for a mask!!!
September 1 Stuck Sketch
It took a while for the inspiration to strike with this one. It wasn't until I saw some of the CT layouts that I realised it wasn't such a daunting challenge.
Mikala's last Gala Spring Concert with the Australia Girls Choir was held on Saturday 1 September. I think this is the best concert that the girls do all year. It is only Performing Choir and Camerata and it is always very intimate.
