Amazing Travel Adventures

Hello and Welcome to my blog today....

To-day I would like to share a layout that I designed from inspiration of several challenge blogs within the scrapbooking industry.

I enjoy supporting challenge blogs as they bring motivation and goal focused clarity 
when creating a layout.  I like to thank all those who organize and provide challenges to help motivate designers within our industry.

I am designing this layout featuring Southern Ridge Trading Company chipboard.  Check out their blog for additional photo's of this layout, my post should go live on March 15th.

This layout features 4 pieces of Southern Ridge chipboard.

I also want to participate in the follow challenge blogs.

My creative Sketches has wonderful sketches and a great community which I encourage all to participate.  Here is the February sketch.

Next up is a challenge blog called Scrap Our Stash.  The March challenge is a Tic Tac Toe challenge.

I choose the center row vertically for this challenge.

Striped paper    GOLD    Flair

This challenge blog is a great motivator to dig deep into your stash!

My last motivational challenge blog is called Picture This.  

Picture This Challenge Blog has a great March mood board this month.

I got my inspiration for my layout from the Lady with the black/white spotted blouse in the mood board.  The gold and black dots also were inspiration for my designed layout.

Here is a close up of part of my layout, so be sure to visit Southern Ridge Trading Company on Wed., March 15th for all the extra photo's.
