Scrap Around the World - October Challenge

Hi everyone,
This month 2Crafty are sponsors and Guest Designers for the challenge site Scrap Around the World.
Before I left to have our baby I decided to get in and do this one.
Here is the challenge:

Feel free to interpret the mood board in any way you like, 
using one image, several of them, all of them or even just 
one aspect of an image, using ANY COLOURS!   Please
do let us know HOW YOU WERE INSPIRED!! 

For example:- You could use fresh, clean colours like white, pale blue, 
yellow, pink, mint green & gold.  Patterns such as florals/leafy foliage
 together with images of birds, flowers, chevrons & polka-dots! There
are elements of vintage mixed in with modern; doilies, airy lace designs,
pretty bows & clashing colours, shapes & prints.  Circles, checks,
stripes - this board is all about eclectic combinations!

There's an air of nostalgia mixed in with the uber-modern images too.
This could prompt you to scrap about different generations, life as it
was then & how it is now, or simply outdoor memories inspired by the
botanical prints.  This board evokes images of purity, beauty & 
femininity, with a touch of romance & homely peace & comfort.  


To be eligible for judging:-

In your blog post:-

1)  Please share our mood board image.
{you may show the sketch image but ONLY IF YOU USE IT}

 2)  Please mention  that you are playing along at 
Scrap Around The World & LINK BACK to the current challenge.

{Please link to YOUR BLOG POST NOT your entire blog & please
 turn off word-verification if you would like some of our Design Team 
members to comment on your entry}.

3)  Please check our RULES OF PLAY HERE before entering.

Here is my layout:
Had so much fun creating this layout with 2Crafty Chipboard.  I followed the sketch but instead of 2 photos I used some chipboard
 in place of 1 of the photos. I was inspired by the blues & pinks in the 
mood board as well as the flowers, doilies, bows, typewriter,
 chevron arrows in the cushion.

And a quick snapshot of my background and chipboard before the photo and embellishments were added. Sorry for the quality it was take very late one night.

Hope you get a chance to play along :)
Till next time
