Hi Everyone, 

Wow can you believe we are already into week 2 of our new month of challenges, the upside though our challenges don't close until the 28th day of the month so this gives you plenty of time to work on any of the palettes.

This weeks colours a simply gorgeous so why not come on over and check them out and see what our lovely Design Team did with them, you will not be dissappointed.

Remember, we are always on the lookout for our next Featured Member, be active in our Message Boards, Reveals and Photo Gallery. Then check your inboxes this week, you could be next!


I used Inspiration Picture 1 and focused  "Colour Washing".  I did this by firstly using texture paste with two different masks.  I then used a couple of different shades of mists to achieve the gradients of colour,  adding a couple of big splashes of watered down paint.

Using the Crafters Workshop Template Cubist gave me the effect I was looking for tying it in with the scattering of petals on the bedroom floor.  I also used a Prima mask so that I could get the word Simply.

My glittery banners which I have used on couple pages over the past few weeks is another one I have fussy cut off a sheet of Kaiser paper.

I thought this colour combo would pretty the picture up of my DD drinking a shot of something on her 18th Birthday.  It seems do have done the trick.

Okay again a real mish mash of product here, but I will try and list what I can.


Cafters Workshop Template - Cubist 12"
Prima - Love Mask & Fairytale roses & Pearls

Websters - Lets Celebrate
October Afternoon - Cake Walk
Kaiser - "Save the Date" Penna speciality paper
Glitz - Peek a boo's 

Well I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and if you didn't get to create hopefully you will get time during the week.  Thank you to those that took the time out to comment on my last post, I really do appreciate it and look forward them.

Bye for now
