Off The Rails March Challenge!

First day of another month and I am back again to share a new challenge and layout with you all! The first one I have to share this month is for Off the Rails Scrapbooking.

Now I have to admit, I didn't love this month's mood palette when I first saw it, as it screamed vintage to me - not my forte at all. Once I stepped back a bit and decided to do it in my own style, I had no problem though. (And I was gently reminded that this is supposed to be a challenge after all!)

Here is what I came up with...

{Papers by Graphic 45; Kaisercraft and Basic Grey; also Kaisercraft Captured Moments pocket cards}

This layout was another great stash buster for me, as I was able to pick through my stash and use up some older product (and some even older scraps!) It was just a matter of finding papers to suit the palette and then off I went.

Here is the palette I was working with...

I took the basic "bones" of the sketch and the colours from the palette as my inspiration to start, but I also incorporated some small details from the photos - such as the pink flower and the book paper.

{Book print chippy heart button from Burdy's Embellies; large flower by Prima; other flowers from D-lish Scraps}

{Flair from D-lish Scraps; photo tab from Flutterby Designs}

You have until the end of the month to join in this challenge and be in the running to win a fabulous prize from Imaginarium Designs
Thanks for popping in, and for everyone who takes time out of their day to leave me comments - they really are very much appreciated! X
