More mood board inspiration

Hello loyal followers, Annette here with my take on Marys' Mood Board Challenge. I drew my inspiration from the colours throughout the board, in particular the different shades of brown which were a perfect match for this gorgeous pic of my two little great neice and nephew. 


I used lots of lovely Kaiser Note Worthy pp, kraft card stock,  as well as the most beautiful collection of embellies from Craft Queen (excluding the bird and mushroom brad), stamping, punches, OA Alphas, Scrapmatts words.

So what inspiration does the mood give you? We would love to see.

Cheers Annette

More inspo for Mary's Mood Board

Hello again. Yes it's the middle of the month once again & I'm here to share my take on Mary's challenge for this month. I hope you all have a go at this one. It doesn't matter how you interpret the challenge, just get something onto a page & see what you come up with.

I was inspired by the French feel and I've used a photo of an artist we came across while he was using Notre Dame Cathedral as his inspiration.  It was such an iconic Parisienne moment that I had to capture it for our travel album. I also liked the greenery of the trees in the mood board and have used some yummy lime green flowers on my page.

I've used a quote from a novel titled "The Paris Wife". For closies pop on over to I hope you find the time to play along this month.

Until next time......Jo
 Hello all.....
 Kim here, firstly I would like to thank Sandra for joining us this month and also Mary for the September Mood Board Challenge.
 Beautiful work Jo!!!
 I drew my inspiration from the bed cover, with the pretty pink and a little from the grey knitted throw.

 ( U Shine, My Girl )

I've used 2 CW templates from Craft Queen, a cute little flourish from Scrapmatts (which I cut in half), and some Prima goodies!
The soft brown on my layout is actually good ole COFFEE.
Hope you have a chance to join in our challenge this month & thanks girls for some beautiful work :))
Love and Hugs

  Miss Annette will add her layout shortly.

Boy the months are flying by , but with a new month brings a new GD and a new challenge. So I have the pleasure to introducing our GD for the month Sandra Scott

My name is Sandra Scott and I’m married to a wonderful man who supports my creative hobby.  Between us we have four adult children and six grandchildren.
I’ve been scrapbooking for about six years but I’ve always had some sort of craft ranging from sewing, decoupage, OTP projects, knitting and attempts at painting.
I can’t say I have a distinct style because I really like experimenting and being inspired by others.  I would say my scrapbooking is quite eclectic because some days I love simple pages and others I love to get dirty and grungy or really girly, it just depends on the task at hand
At the moment I love experimenting with the art journal techniques.
Products used:
Bo Bunny Isabella Patterned Paper
La La Land Crafts Eiffel Tower Die
FWAB Pearls
Green Tara Roses
Kaisercraft Pearl Flourish
American Craft Thickers Alpha
Versa Color Old Rose Ink Pad
Heart Trim, large flower, white doily and spotted bow from stash
I fussy cut the butterflies, pink doilies and tags from the paper range.

The mood board spoke of love to me so I decided to use a B/W photo of my daughter’s wedding.  The Eiffel Tower is direct from the mood board and the flowers from the bed and the colour grey from each photo on the board.

The Moodboard that I am asking you to take your inspiration from this month
And Here is Sandra's beautiful take on the challenge
and some close ups ~ Just beautiful and delicate

I would recommend you visit Sandra's blog  . Thank you so much Sandra for being our GD this month.

Cheryl here 
Another month flown by.... (won't be long until Christmas!!..Sorry!!) and here I am again with my take on Mary's mood board challenge. I have chosen to take my inspiration from the colours, and have used a pic of my little 3rd Cousin, the ever so sweet Georgia, who is only a few months old.
A bit strange I guess to use a baby pic with these colours but I think it worked?

I have used paint to do the stencilling (stencil from Craft Queen) and stamping (Kaiser script stamp)  The background started off as white cardstock to which I added various glimmermists and Tim Holtz distress inks and blended all together. The flowers are from a Spellbinders template, the green flower is Green Tara and the vine template is from an unknown source ( which means... I can't remember... sorry!)
Phew!!! and after all that, thank you to Mary for another great challenge.
