It has been a while since I have posted. I have been away for a short holiday, went to Stanthorpe to visit my mum then a 7.5hour drive to Moura to visit my oldest son. I loved seeing my family and catching up, wish I could of spent longer with them.
But since I have been home my scrapping mojo has gone bye-bye...much to my disgust :(
I do have one page to share with you all, I created this before I went away.
Over at Soul Scrappers they have a Soul Scrappers Quest that is run on regular bases.
What is SSQ you ask?
For everyone that signs up [limited spaces available] they receive a small packet of goodies to use, you can create a layout, OTP or cards. So the goodies that Karen sent out for SSQ12 were of a travel theme. When I saw them I knew I wanted to scrap a page from one of our Bali trips. This photo was taken a few years ago on our second visit to Bali, Brett and Zoe in front of the Hard Rock cafe Bali.
Now the bag of goodies included a quote, a piece of denim, ribbon, brads, die cut shape [film strip], 3 travel embellishments, a small piece of double sided paper and some cork. Well the cork really had me in a spin...a what am I going to create spin, I have never used cork before on a layout. Also has you can see I used up some of my older items as well, the background paper and alphas. 
Here are a few close up shots...
So I decided to cut up and punch out shapes out of the cork. To give the page a little bit more interest, the little punched out circles of cork and paper, I scattered to give the page a visual flow line. It felt good to experiment with something different.
Thanks so much for stopping by ♥
