Another play day with Blue Fern! Using Courtship Lane and a few sheets from other lines I decided to scrap this cute picture of my youngest daughter Jessie! She has a knack for taking awesome selfies. I only wish I could lol! I know I am biased but I think she's simply beautiful inside and out.
 I played off the purple in her hair, again something I wish I could pull of!
 Both chippies are from Dusty Attic. This one was heat embossed using Blue Fern's Violet embossing powder.
Flowers from Prima, Petaloo and Blue Fern. Lots of glitter and stamping added to the page for interest. I actually cut this chippie in half so I could frame the photo so to speak.  The adorable little flair you see on the page is from Cuts2Luv. I love their flairs and must have bought 70 of them! They are the perfect little touch on any project! 
II even used some drywall tape and canvas strip on this. Had a lot of fun going wild with purple and loved that I had all the shades I wanted in papers from Blue Fern. I hope you enjoyed this random play with purple! Working on another project to be posted later this week. I have been battling the worst flu ever!!! Four weeks!! Even included a hospital stint and I am hoping that I am past the worst of it as it has a tendency to come back just when you think you're out of the woods! Fingers crossed! Hope to see you soon!
All the best! :)

This month at More Than Words we have a cool challenge going on. And I of course took in a completely different direction lol!
 This is our challenge board. . .
As you can see on the blog there are so many pretty soft and feminine layouts and then there is mine! I choose to dig out some oldie but goodie papers from Basic Grey called Marrakesh. I scrapped about a very Special little boy named Jaxon who happens to be my grandson!
My something new was this awesome flair I just got from Cuts2Luv. And the blue well that speaks for itself with the background.
I have owned these papers for years now and this is the first time I've used them. I love the bright and playful theme of them. They also worked perfectly with my "boy" page. I rolled a few into straws to give the layout some dimension. I also colored my molding paste with Dylusions paint in Orange to make it pop and I think I achieved that effect!
I used some of my favourite chippies from Dusty Attic and went over them with several colors several times until I was happy with the effect. I also used some of the chipboard from the Marrakesh line to add on top of the cogs.
This layout is all about the awesome energy this little boys has and how much he loves life. I even had matching rubons for this line and couldn't help adding one!
The title says it all. Actually I included the flair as my title so it actually says "be wild Daredevil". Jaxon has no fear of anything. He is an energetic outgoing little boy that loves to play and try new things. He's even riding a dirt bike at the age of well almost 3 (with supervision of course!). I love him to pieces.

I would love to see how you interpret this month's board!! Head on over to More Than Words and look at the gorgeous work done by our talented design team. We also have some awesome prizes up for grabs from our wonderful sponsors! I look forward to seeing you there!! 
All the best! :)
