Scrap the Boys January Challenge!

Hi everyone! Can you believe we are halfway through January already? Time sure flies when you are having fun. I have also just realised I have reached 500 posts on my blog! What do you think about a giveaway to celebrate? Stay tuned for that one!

I am here today with another of my design team shares for the month, this time for Scrap the Boys. This month's challenge is a cool mood board that looks like this...

Now, I will admit the purple tones had me daunted initially, as its probably my least favourite colour to scrap with (aside from brown), but I am really happy with how my layout turned out.

{Patterned paper by Studio Calico and Glitz Designs}

As you can see, I managed to pull together enough purple embellishments for this layout, but if it hadn't have been for the D-lish Scraps mini paper doilies; a pack of Heidi Swapp mistable ephemera and a bottle of glimmermist, I would have been up the proverbial creek! ;)

As soon as I saw the colours on this board I immediately thought of the Incredible Hulk with his green skin and purple pants. And lucky for me (despite the lack of purple pants available), my partner had dressed our boys as the hulk on Halloween, so it was obviously meant to be!

Right here is the reason you should always buy the multi-coloured pack of doilies - even if you think you won't use all the colours! ;) (Mini paper doilies and Journal Its strip both from D-lish Scraps; flair by Flutterby Designs.)

My other saving grace for this layout - Heidi Swapp mistable ephemera (sprayed with purple glimmermist), combined with Heidi Swapp acetate ephemera pieces.
I also had a little photo-editing fun with a couple of the photos - the boys were very impressed with their green skin and "angry eyes".

More HS mistable ephemera, D-lish Scraps Journal Its journal spot and enamel dots; and a bit of stamping finished this one off.

Thanks for stopping by today. I do hope you will give this awesome mood board a go. As you have seen, it makes for a really cool palette for boy layouts! You have until the end of the month to link your layouts up via the Scrap the Boys blog and be in the running for one of two great prizes this month. You can find all the details HERE.
Til next time, happy scrapping! X
