Strawberry Malt

Hi Everyone!  
Lydia here with a layout for you today.  

My boys love malts and shakes and this was the perfect photo to document that.  I've used a mix of Crate Paper lines on this page.  Just a fun, simple page to put together.

Thanks for stopping by the blog!  Make sure you check out all the other designer's inspiring projects and this month's color inspiration challenge.

Off The Rails Scrapbooking

Where do I begin???  My poor neglected blog.  Its been months since I posted anything or created anything for that matter.  Work, boys, life… all just got crazy and inspiration went out the window.  Things really are still crazy but I'm trying to get back into scrapbooking as I do love it.

I've now joined the Design Team at Off the Rails Scrapbooking and am excited to participate in my first challenge.  Thanks for having me Ladies!  Make sure you stop by the blog for more inspiration.

The first challenge is a color one.  I just love this pallet!  These are colors that just draw me in so this was a fun one for me.  Here is the inspiration.

I love all the teals and the pop of red.  I used a photo of my middle son when he turned 13.  Crazy that I now have two teenagers!  Anyway, I've painted wood veneer (my favorites!) and a wooden card "Life is Good" to help bring in all those yummy teals.  

I found this months/dates card in my Project Life stash and knew it was perfect for this layout.  I colored in Ian's birthday with my favorite pens, Gelly Rolls.  Love the way it turned out!

Here's another look at the wood veneer I painted and a bit of colored washi tape to pull it all together.

Thanks for taking the time to look!  I'll be back sooner than later.  Make sure you link up your project on the blog using the inspiration photo for the chance to win a great prize!  Rachel has a generous prize for this challenge!  You won't want to miss out.
