D-lish is turning 4! - My sample for the inspiration challenge - Me? Cheeky? ... Never!?!


It's D-lish Scraps birthday and the are celebrating with a week long event of challenges, competitions and giveaways! 



One of the Challenges which is due midnight Friday 11th July (tomorrow) is to use the below mood board as inspiration.



This is what D-lish had to say about the challenge
We have this gorgeous inspiration board filled with yummy colours, textures and an original sketch. You can take inspiration from any OR all of it to create a layout/card/OTP/project life page. Just be sure to tell us where you drew your inspiration from. Entries are open for {2} weeks till midnight Friday 19th July AEST. Winner will be drawn at random and receive a $50 store voucher to spend at D-lish Scraps!! Entries can be loaded to our fb page, linked in the comments to the blog post or emailed to dlishscraps@gmail.com Who's inspired?? 

I decided to give this one a go just for fun and dug out some gorgeous Amy Tangerine 'Yes Please' papers, alphas and stickers and my D-lish goodies.

I took inspiration from the colours mainly, some of the patterns, and I began the page by using the sketch, but then it morphed into something not like it at all, haha. 

Anyways, its of my girl, I have journaled in detail about how cos she is such a cutie she has everyone wrapped around her fingers...

The Freckled Fawn hearts attach so easily with the Tim Holtz tiny attacher.


I used one of the new Chevron paper bags in the store to hold my journaling. I am finding I am either having brief strip journaling on a page or detailed journaling which I hide behind layers which is on tags. The Amy Tan paper which can be cut up had the perfect 4x6 section to hold my journaling. 


My journaling to Charlotte.


Last detail image - close up of main elements on page.



Well, you only have until tomorrow night to get this challenge done, but boy it is such a great challenge! Such awesome colours, nice sketch and cool patterns in the images too. Maybe you could find time to scrap it tonight. 

Happy Birthday D-lish!!! 

Hope this inspired you to join in :)
