Latest DT work

Hi everyone,
Wow, what a month March has been!  3 of my cherubs have birthdays in March, and one of them had a week off of school, because they were ill... it has been a very full on month.
But here we are in April!  A quarter of the year is already gone!  So, let's jump into the challenge reveals I have to share with you, and not think about how quickly the time is going!
First up: D-Lish Scraps
This month's mood board is called 'Tangerine Splash' and is chock a block full of inspiration!  I just know you'll have so much fun with this one!
And of course, here are the close ups :)
The orange gauze is from the D-Lish Scraps shop, as are the blue and aqua button, the stars, sequins, chevron flair, copper wire, bicycle charm and jewelled flowers - actually, just about all the embellies on this page, except the crocheted flower lol.

Next, Show Us Your Stuff
The challenge this month is to use this gorgeous image for inspiration:
Here is my take on the challenge:
I took inspiration from the colours, the circles and the purple flower.  My handmade embellie is the Catie's Craft Corner Enchanting Envelope, in which I have hidden my journaling.

Would love to see what you create for this challenge!

My last page for today is for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge
The challenge for this page is to:
"Scrap or art journal about a favourite pastime from your youth.  Was it a sport, fishing, cycling, reading, or teasing your older brother? Use a photo of when you were young, a photo of the pastime, or whatever is appropriate!!!"
My page is about the series of mystery novels I read over and over again as a teen... The Trixie Belden series.  I just LOVED these books!
I still have my collection :)
Here are the close ups:

This pic below shows the journaling hidden under the photo - the string is attached to the journaling card.

I used pages from an old book and glued them to my cardstock with Mod Podge, including a layer of Mod Podge over the top.  This gave a great texture and surface to spray ink onto and to distress using inks and tea.  I soaked the gauze in tea also.  The corrugated cardboard added extra texture and age to the page.
Can't wait to see what you share for this challenge :)
Be sure to check out each of the challenges and the amazingly inspiring work of all the other DT members!
Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo


  1. Wow, these are all amazing :) I was immediately drawn to your D-lish Scraps layout - stunning colours and just wow. And you must be around the same vintage as me... I read all of the Trixie Beldon books when I was around 12 or so, and I still have mine too :) Now my 13yo daughter is reading them.

  2. Thanks so much for your lovely comments Karen :)
    Oh Trixie was such a good friend lol How lovely that your daughter is enjoying Trixie's adventures also :) x
