Inspiration is bought to us today by 


Hello and welcome to December everyone, today I am bringing you my interpretation of this gorgeous new Mood Board.

I have chosen to use mainly the blue hues for my own layout with just a hint of the coral. 

49 and Market Vintage Artistry papers in SKY was just perfect, layered with the ephemera stack pieces, added washi tape and laser cut sheet elements. I have then added a small portion of the Coral range laser cuts with those super cute beads and buttons plus Rub-Ons to finish off my page.

These photos are so special to me as they are from Christmas Day 2017, the first without my Brother, a hard day but then also an absolutely amazing day as it was when I found out that I was to be a NANNY for the first time of my now two Grandbabies. 

I cried and cried and cried and then possibly cried some more !  There is a tab underneath the bottom photo that is ready for me to do some “hidden journaling”. 

The new Big Moon by Nuneka chipboard piece just jumped out at me as soon as I saw it and was perfect for this layout. I have painted the Moon, Flutterbies  Butterfly, and Mini Caption (Memories Documented) with Blu Avio Stamperia paint, the Winters Forrest trees have been inked for the trunk and some branches with Pinecone and then a little of Avocado Green paint added. 

 I have then used older chippy pieces Nest, branches and Mini Eggs to make my element at the bottom of my layout.

I hope you get a chance to create and join in to be in the running for a Dusty Attic Prize Pack.
