Back to reality...

Well hello everyone! It's been a few months but after galavanting around France and Barcelona for six weeks, then a family wedding away and work committments I've finally been able to do some creating. There are so many wonderful challenges out there this month I didn't know where to start! I haven't created a layout for many, many months so I kept procrastinating about it until I forced myself to just sit down and start something. I can always rely on Kraft+ to give me a kickstart. Here is their July Challenge:

This was more difficult than I first realised, mainly because I haven't used flowers for quite a while let alone with a Kraft background. But whilst in Singapore we visited the beautiful Gardens by the Bay and I took this photo in the Bloom Dome. I think it is the most perfect Rose and the colour is so very pretty and of course I wanted to showcase this magnificent bloom.

 Nature in all her stunning glory

I haven't used any pattern paper on this layout at all because I didn't want to distract the eye from the photo and the die cut is quite busy in the background.

The inspiration over at K+ is amazing so if you haven't visited them this month yet, pop on over and take a look.

I'll be back later with photos of my travel journal in its finished state and if you're interested I have posted a few photos from our travels on my FB page, but I'm sure you'll be seeing them here as I get them ready into my PL albums. Thanks for looking! xx


  1. WOW!!! It sure is a gorgeous rose...great photo Jo and I do love the little white edges on the photo. The white die cut roses and the pale pink chippie works so well with the Kraft. Very happy that the Kraft+ challenge took you eye and that you played along again this month. x

  2. This looks amazing, and love the photo and fabulous die cut on the back ground too.. thanks for joining in with Kraft+ this month..

  3. A glorious photo and softly, delicately scrapped. Lovely work Jo. Good to see you back again. Thanks for playing along at Kraft+
