LOVE brings you HOME @ Scrap Africa

{My DT work for Scrap Africa}

Hi everyone and here's wishing you a glorious August. I'm back again with newest layout. I can't exactly remember when was the last time I scrap; I think it was early June. Time pass by so quickly and we are living in August already?! So what did I do in July besides fasting in Ramadan and celebrating Eid afterwards that is coming to its end this week and also fighting eczema; yes, I did a lot of sewing and decorating the house. So I would say July was dedicated to spring cleaning and home decorating. It's a never ending process however. I keep changing things around the house. Do you?  Maybe I should do a blog post about home decorating. What d'ya think? Suggestions are welcome {smile}

Enough blab, lol. Here's another scrapbook page for my youngest child. She's always thrill every time I make her one even though she question, "Me again? Why not them?" referring to her big sisters and brother {chuckle}.
This month challenge at Scrap Africa is based on this mood board.
Pretty huh? I like the color combination between blue and purple. I simply focused on these two colors on my page. We would love to see your creativity here using this mood board before the month ends.

Here are some close- up pictures:
I used many scrap papers for layers from previous projects. Papers are so expensive and I can't bear throwing the tiny bits...
 My all time favorite Carla-Craft leaf punch used to punch some leaves and colored.

 The beads from my bead work and will soon sew beads and sequins on my eldest's dress that is in the making.
{hope to finish a.s.a.p because we will visit her at boarding school this Saturday being a meeting session between parents and teachers on report card day respectively to discuss about her academic progress and mid-year examination results she had recently...sounds no fun to any pupil I bet, lol}.
 I love distress ripping off the burlap for additional interest; something that drives me nuts if that happens while sewing {bahaha}.
 The more layers the merrier, think I've said that many times before.
Overall, I didn't use many elements to decorate my page this time; just some flowers and butterflies to adorn the page with some beads, gems and buttons. I wanted to highlight the layers more with watercolors and gesso afterwards.
I used this lovely sketch from Creative Club to kick start my page:
Until I see you again soon. Have a great time living life and take care.

Hugs and smiles,
