Scrapbook Boutique September challenge and blog hop

Welcome once again to Scrapbook Boutique's monthly challenge and blog hop.  You should have arrived here from Angela's amazing blog but if you didn't and want to start at the beginning, just click on the SBB blog link above and start again!  



We want to challenge you to create something inspired by this pretty mood board - this is what I created this month:


Obviously inspired by the balloons, but also the soft sky, the person swept up and away by the balloons, and the birthday wishes.



I sponged distress ink through a sun ray stencil I created on the silhouette a while ago.


I covered an all-over cloud stencil with several post it notes, leaving just one cloud so that I could place my clouds exactly where I wanted them.  The white heat-embossed balloons were coloured with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers (with no water added because it was normal cardstock).


Now to the housekeeping part - if you want to create something or just join in to win, there are two ways you can participate in this challenge and have a chance to win a prize.  You can comment on each blog, ending with the SBB blog, or you can create a project (either a card, scrapbook layout or off the page project) inspired by this photo.  Of course you can do both for a chance to win both prizes!  Please check out the rules of entry, and the prizes at the Scrapbook Boutique Blog and note that this challenge is open to Australian  and New Zealand residents.

We can't wait to see what you create for this challenge - each month the entries are just amazing and we love to see how everyone seems to take something unique from the mood board.

Now you should hop on over to Linda's fantastic blog!


Thanks for visiting and happy crafting!
