Colorful Creations - Recipe Challenge

Hi Everyone

Its been a little while since my last post, however I am finally back on deck and hopefully it will stay that way, but who knows life takes you into many twists and turns some welcoming and others not so much.  Thanks to those that have still taken the time to pop in here and leave me a messages Its nice to know that your work and posts are appreciated and inspiring

As we all know in the scrapping world a new month means a new challenge and Its exciting to be back creating again.   I hope you have some time to stop by Colorful Creations and join in on the many events that we have.  Colorful Creations also has a blog now and we would love it if you come on over and follow us.

My monthly challenge is a Recipe so if you would like to check out this event and join in just follow the link here.

Part of my challenge is to use a less than perfect photos, I not the best photographer and I really don't like contrived photos for me those sort of photos don't really tell me a story.  The photo I have used here is of my DD and her boyfriend messing around in the kitchen having fun.  These are the sort of moments I want her to remember. A picture that will evoke a memory  rather than her thinking her mother was a crazed scrapbooker that I would go to no ends to get a supposed perfect shot.

I have used a few different masks along with textured paste and glimmer mist to achieve the background, I wanted something fun and quirky looking and I think I achieved that both with colour and shapes.

I have also used some torn washing tape radomly around the page along with a few odd rubons and stickers.

Product Use:

Glitz & MME Papers
Washi Tape
The Crafters Workshop & Prima Templates
Textured Paste
Glimmer Mists

Thanks for looking and for any of your comments you may leave
