Show Us Your Stuff - August

I had a go at both challenges over at Show Us your Stuff this month.

The First challenge was to use Paint, Include the colour red, Handmade flower, Include some fussy cutting & Use a decorative strip!

Also this month if you added some paper beads to your layout as a technique you go into the draw to win a prize.

here is my take on the challenge:

This is a picture of my Dad's Parents on their Wedding Day

 A close up of the flower I made

 This is my attempt at a rolled bead made into a butterfly with some of the patterned paper

Just a random close up from the top right of the layout.

The Second challenge was to use the Quote:

"Life is like a great big canvas and you should throw all the paint on it you can" Danny Kaye

And here is what I came up with...

The quote just made me want to use LOTS of bright colours so this is what I came up with...

 Close up of the quote on the layout

 I Made this Penguin Brad

I made these clouds too...they are so easy...I used an imaginisce stamp of a Cloud and stamped using Staz On in Black onto White cardstock and then cut the cloud out and ran it in my 'Big Shot' using my Swiss Dots embossing Folder. EASY!!!

Thanks for looking
