Exciting things happening at Orange Paperie and a New Challenge

Hello to all our lovely followers Mary here. Well a new month and a new challenge and we are also very happy to have two new DT Members, Cheryl and Jo :) so happy to have them as part of the team.
Also our GD this month is the lovely Belinda Lowe, better known as BB. 

A Bit about me -

I am a wife and a mother to 4 children. I live in Toowoomba, QLD and have so for the last 14 years. I am a hairdresser by trade but 4 years ago I decided to study nursing at university, fingers crossed I will finish my degree this year. My husband travels away for work so my life is crazy busy. I started scrap booking about 5 or 6 years ago because my mother decided that she would like to try it and asked if I would help her - mmmmm help, more like take over - I was so much better off doing my own thing. I find scrapping to be a good therapy and I can zone out from the rest of the world when I enter my creative bubble. I have been published several times in Scrap booking Memories and I am currently on design teams for Scrapboxx and Archiscraps, I also do designs for the LSS in Toowoomba called the Scrap Cottage. I have lots more life to live and plenty more stories to tell and scrap booking is the best way to preserve a story to a memory that may otherwise be forgotten. I also love playing soccer and I like to delve into the kitchen and get inspired by recipes. You can visit my blog for more of my scrapping and also a few recipes thrown in there. Happy Days

The challenge for the month is inspiration from Pinterest, to interpret anyway you choose. The other DT members have done an amazing job and come up with some fabulous creations.
So here is the challenge , the only other criteria is to add stamping and punching 
Firstly here is BB's take on the April Challenge....

My LO - I was inspired by the photo frames and the couch, I immediately thought polaroids and sitting (don't ask me why), I found pics of my younger years when I used to drool over Manpower, I think they took up 3 years of my life in addiction :). I have stamping on the page and also I have punched the holes for the stitching.
and here is my take 
Looking forward to seeing what you see in the picture that inspires you, and now for the amazing DT contributions.
