Best Bro's

 Some exciting news to share - I was recently accepted into the ARTastic Challenge Design Team.
And this is my first LO for the June challenge which is on now - you can view the details here.
Inspiration comes from a painting and there are certain criteria to follow - for June your LO needs to include: 2 people in your picture, striped pattern paper and a boat somewhere on your LO!
I really enjoyed working with this first challenge and I'm excited to be able to share my inspiration for this challenge - thanks to Shazza for having me on her team!
Here are some close-up's:
 A fimo boat from the ChipChop Shop and I've also stamped some boats on the patter paper.
 Another boat on a tag and a cute little chipboard birdie - which has been sponged with ink, then I've used some white rub-on's.
Some striped patter paper, a bunting and a fimo cloud.

If you would love to join in with this challenge, please head over to the challenge blog to view all the details and link up your LO - we would love to have you join in.  My Etsy Shop - Creative Bits is  sponsoring the challenge this month and this is what you could win:

Looking forward to seeing your entries soon - thanks for coming by and happy crafting.
Here's what I've used:
Papers: Sassafrass & Echo Park
Accessories: Fimo embellishments - Chipchop Shop, Chipboard Bird Scrap FX, Collage shipping tag, twine, MS punch, crochet doily, glimmer-mist for BG, computer journalling, rubbons, machine stitching.

Chantelle, that is fantastic news. I'm not surprised as each and every one of your layouts is just gorgeous. I've always loved all your details and all the extra special love that goes into them. It comes across in every page.

I'm so sorry I haven't been to visit for a while. I've missed seeing your work and the lovely photos of your family. They are all growing so quickly, especially Caden.

I love all the embellishments on this layout and the colours are awesome. Just gorgeous, as always.

Love and hugs
