Scrapbook Boutique March Challenge and Blog Hop

Hey there - Welcome to the Scrapbook Boutique March Blog Hop and Challenge.

There are two fun things for you to do -  the Blog Hop and the Challenge - 

  • Leave a comment at each DT girl's blog and then finish with a comment on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog itself where the random winner will be drawn.

You have one week....the hop closes midday March 17 and the winner will be announced on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog on March 18. Good Luck!

(Head back to the SB Blog if you lose your way - you'll find the complete Blog Hop list....hop and challenge open to Australian and New Zealand residents only.)

Next - pull out your craft supplies and get busy with this month's Inspiration Challenge - we are now using these amazing mood boards to inspire you.

They were created by Audrey T who has kindly given Scrapbook Boutique permission to use them.

These gorgeous mood boards are bound to give you ooodles of fabulous inspiration for your projects...check out the board for March...

For me I couldn't go past the sweet aqua bottles and flowers in the top left photo. Here's my card all ready for Easter later this month...

March 10 Challenge Card

I cut an egg with my Oval Nesties and added heat embossed spots - overlaying my Prima Cobblestones mask and squishing Versa Mark ink through it before adding white EP.

I then used the glorious green #50 in my Gansai Tambi Watercolour Set to colour the embossed egg.

Once that was dry I Zig coloured a few Doodle Bud blooms/leaves to add around my flower.

So that's just what I've been doing....playing with the current challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room to be exact.....Week #105 "Spring is Near"....well not here in Australia it's not lol.

But the inspiration pic inspired me - just like it's supposed to ha ha -

Along with the pic, Char has asked -  "that you create a card or project inspired by the photo USING AT LEAST THREE COLORS FROM THE PICTURE and DRY EMBOSSING!"

Well, too easy :-) I chose teal, pink and lime green and the pots of paint inspired me to dry brush some paint on my spotted embossing panels along the bottom of my 'tis -
