Miss Kim's Colour Challenge

 Welcome to AUGUST scrappy friends!!!!

  Well,  do we have some scrappy inspiration for you this month......as our blog post title, tells you this month I'm setting you a colour challenge, but before I show you the gorgeous colours I would like to introduce you to our Guest Designer for August......
                                                Donna White

Hi! My name is Donna White and I live on the outskirts of a small country town in the Darling Downs, Queensland . Some of you may know me from various forums as Dondon.

I am a mother to two amazing teenage girls, Kirsten, 15 and Amanda 13, who have been my scrapping subjects for the last 9 years. I also enjoy scrapping about my life, my friends (and their children) Oh, and my husband LOL

I have recently discovered art journaling as well, so it is quite common to see my hands covered in ink and paint.

You can find my blog at http://donna-white.blogspot.com.au . (Pop in and say Hi!)

I am currently serving my second term on the Scrap the Girls DT and feel honoured to be asked to be a guest designer for Orange Paperie..

Thanks girls.

Now Miss Mary added her layout a few days ago.......below

Hello friends,
As I am going to be away for Miss Kim's challenge I have got my layout done and hopefully Kim or Annette will upload it for me. Firstly I must say I LOVE the colours that Kim has chosen and I had fun doing this layout. I was inspired by Kim and Julie Winks to try the Salt and Ink technique and I love the result. My layout if of a photo I took on the beautiful island of Patmos.
I look forward to seeing everyone's layouts when I get home

 So girls hope you have been inspired and we can't wait to see your layouts for August. You have until the end of August to enter.
