The Color Room Pallette #89
"Daughters are So Special"

Hello again. Trying to get all of my monthly challenges up before Chrissy. This is my layout for this weeks challenge #89 over at The Color Room. This weeks colour pallete just grabbed me. I am not a blue person normally, aqua yes, but I never scrap in blue but when I saw Belinda Spencers layout for this challenge I was just so inspired to give blue a go. So yet again, thanks so much Belinda for all the inspiration. Aren't we so lucky to have such great challenge blogs like the "Color Room" to challenge & inspire us & to push us out of our comfort zone. I just LOVE doing these challenges, & I have to say I think it also pushes your creativity too.
I have done my signature distressing, I actually struggle, not distressing these days, I just love distressed edges so much. I suppose it is just a "phase" I am going through!! I have misted in white, I do love this white mist. I have also sewn all my edges if you look closely. I have used some lovely NEW chippie mesh, this one was only released last week & I am rather keen on it. I have die cut that lovely blue doiley you can see in the background as well as the corrugated one. I have splashed lots of Gesso on all my other pieces, and all in all I am rather pleased with the end result. This was one of those layouts that just came together easy. I wish they all did!!!
Until next time, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas & New Year, be safe & see you all back here in Blog land soon.       
Cheers Di  xx
