More than words - November Challenge

I'm really liking the November Challenge at More than words and found it was just perfect for these pics of my son Shaun at his first visit to the beach. He really loved it right up until the time he rubbed his eyes and got sand in them, after that it went pretty downhill with one very unhappy little man.



I really enjoyed doing this page and used Kaisers Sandy toes range (one of my favs), some gorgeous Green Tara flowers, yummy Scrapmatt chippies, shells, blue seed beads, Stampendous Steel blue crushed glass glitter, Wow embossing powder Primary Chartreuse, White embossing powder and other bits and pieces. I used Gel medium to adhere all the small beads etc and then flicked the page with Jack Frost Glimmer Spray.
The word inspiration Outdoors is on the page and the theme of the page is Outdoors as well.
The creative challenge Woodgrain is on the background PP, hello badge and the alphas used in the word outdoors.

Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.
The challenge is open to layouts, canvases and art journal pages only.
Make sure to carefully read our instructions below.

Word Inspiration - OUTDOORS
Creative Challenge - WOODGRAIN

What does the word WOODGRAIN inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the actual word somewhere on your project 
or simply be inspired by it.  Since, as you are aware, words 
are an integral part of our challenges, we want to know 
how this month's word stimulated your creative process, 
so please do explain in your blog post how it inspired you!

One of the many scrapbooking trends of the past couple years 
that doesn't seem to get old is WOODGRAIN patterns. 
We thought that it would go perfectly with our word 
inspiration this month. So, whether you use patterned paper, 
a stamp, a stencil or the real thing, it doesn't matter. 
Show us your woodgrain!

So why not make your way over to More than words and play along with the challenge.

Cheers to all
Annette
