Each month the Inksomniac's team post a stamping, photo inspiration or colour challenge.
This month's challenge was a bowl of curly pasta using the colours: yellow, orange and pink.
These colours in cardstock are very bright... which gave me pause for thought.
It is cut from the Large lace ribbon border punch and I've used the yellow brad from the Square Fire Rhinestones pack.
In the top right hand corner I used the small boho blossom punch flowers scrunched and layered with a yellow brad.

This scrapbook page is from photos I took last school holidays.
It celebrates my daughter and I and the fun we have together.
So the title is Celebrate today and the journalling says:
"My happiest days are with you".

I made a just for you card to slip in one pocket with the bicycle stamp out of the Autumn mini cat.
My daughter loves this stampset.
She also wrote a note to her aunty to go inside behind the chocolates.
Using some Melon Mambo pink ribbon to decorate it with and then I embellished it with the
Doily triple layer punch and button dies to make a flower on the front.
And there is a Jelly Bean Brad in the centre 'cause we all love cup cakes...

With the scoring tool you can score the paper in a 5, 10, 5, 10, 1cm pattern and fold it top and bottom to make a gorgeous box.
I hope you all had a lovely mother's day.
Whether you are a mother or celebrated your mother.
My day started early with gifts from the school Mother's Day stall:
a beaded wire bracelet, vanilla scented bath salts and a red flower made of feathers!
We made pancakes for breakfast and as punishment for being such a nice mum we played the wii fit for two hours before some lovely hot chicken and vegetable soup.
Here are some of the cards I made for the school M' Day stall.
Finding a simple and repeatable design is the fun part.
The next one is made with whisper white cardstock
(also run through the Big shot and vintage wallpaper folder).
But first I stamped it with my favourite stampset ATM:
"Rue De Fleurs."
I just love the images of the vintage umbrella, flower filled bodice, trumpet and pen.
I used Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Marina Mist in a random stamping pattern.
