Bright colours for February, I think we all need that!
I really enjoy using a dark background. It is navy but looks lighter!
Gingham fabric, ribbons, pleated some fabric under the word wonderful.
Transparent stickers on my title, mounted on yellow to pop.
Clouds to add to the atmosphere! A few scallops tucked under the photos and of course the loopy string!
I decided to use speech bubbles but also incorporated the inspiration in story.
The sketch had to be mirrored so as to suit my photos!

Just made it to share in this months on-your-bike-january-challenge at http://kraftpluschallenges.blogspot.com.au/2016/12/on-your-bike-january-challenge.html
Holiday time and been away.
This is an original photo, so quality is poor but it was my first thought when I saw this challenge. I was a little girl busy building cubby houses with the excess bricks from the new house we moved into in 1968. My little tricycle looks a little overloaded!

It's so much fun experimenting with the colour scheme Debbi gives us each challenge!
Do you want to know how we choose the colours?
I find the best hint is to choose 2 main colours that will dominate the page but particularly compliments your photo. Then add third colour using a little less of it then highlight the other 2 colours in small amounts, for example I used chocolate in a tag and "ME"
As you can see none of the colours are in these photos but that makes them stand out.
They were taken with a film camera about 2004 and they have some light flaws but I was able to use embellishments to hide them.
Another fun idea, try to do your story using word stickers!

The blue shows up brighter than in reality!!!!
It's definitely paler, never mind it looks good.
How we love cherry season Not as good this year, our winter was far too wet!!!!
It covered 2 areas of the challenge documenting something about food and the inspiration words tradition and sweet
I used heaps of older labels, found some gingham the perfect green, stitching of course keeps everything in place.
Found these old rubons and they still worked!!!

I haved used leaves, bow, metal , bird, hearts and my testimony is about visiting this local castle called Iandra. A very unusual site in the middle of a wheat farming area in Australia . Built in the early 1900's by an English family that moved to here. It has a fascinating history including becoming a home for wayward boys when it deteriorated. Its been restored gradually opening several times a year . I have known about it for 40 years but it was only this year when I took my daughter and her friend to visit ! I was overwhelmed with the history and restorations. Worth getting out and visting!!!!!!!!http://www.iandracastle.com.au/about
