#happy .. with Scrap Africa

Have you ever set out to create a layout you could picture perfectly in your head, and it turns out completely different to how you imagined it? That happened here.


Scrap Africa have a 'to die for' mood board for their challenge this month. Divine colours and fabulous photos. I was inspired by the circles in the mood board .. the plate and the macaroons .. and the soft, warm, pastel colours.

Originally this layout was going to be full on mixed media. It seems like such a long time since I really got messy. Then it was going to be clean. It looked fabulous clean but I couldn't help myself LOL, and a little Bo Bunny Glitter Paste kinda just fell on.

The challenge also includes a quote .. If you can learn from hard knocks, you can also learn from soft touches. Its the kind of quote that makes you stop and think, reflect on life and the lessons learned. It hit far too deeply for me to scrap about myself, but this beautiful photo of my niece was perfect, and having shared stories, well I knew I had to scrap it. Thanks for the inspiration Scrap Africa!

Do you like warm pastels? Maybe macaroons? Does the quote resonate with you? Perhaps you too want to play along with Scrap Africa this month? You can find all the details you need HERE.

Happy scrapping!
