Black With 2

Welcome, I think it's finally cooling down here in Sunny Queensland.  
I was excited to get back from my scrapbooking weekend and find that we can actually now have the fire burning.  It was so lovely to sit in front of a fire and feel the heat radiating on your skin, especially after a long drive home.  Oh!! and to a beautifully cooked dinner, the house filled with family and friends a large glass of wine.  A perfect end to a fabulous weekend.  

This is the usual time we head off to our annual scrapbooking weekend,  as much as I enjoy going, I never know what to pack.  After loading the car up with everything I think needed I was able to create for a few challenges.  First up on my list was BLACK WITH 2 challenge, the only problem when you are away from your craft room is the struggle to find the right colours.  In the end I was happy with the result.


I didn't have to much patterned paper to choose from so I used a little from the MME "Find Your Wings" range.  I was inspired by the picture to use some shot's taken on my Mother's Day High Tea  that my daughter had taken me to this year.  I created the background with paint and textured paste and a mask.  

My Title reads "The Sweetness of Old Favourites" I thought this was fitting for the photos and the quote that  I had found in my stash.  I flipped the sketch and I used a Quickutz die cut to create my interpretation of the bottom of the sketch.  

Other product used:

Kaiser - Hot Air Balloon transparency & blooms
The Crafters Wokshop - Template
Basic Grey Stickers
Websters - Stickers
Prima Flowers
My Minds Eye - Up and Away paper
