Playing again at making a mess

I was having ago at a messy background ,but I never seem to fimd the right "stuff" my play area is a mess in it 's self I keep tidying up & losing things . This photo of one grandaughter caught my eye so I enlarged & cut out the backgraound as it was dark & wasn't needed for what I had in mind . The look on her face & in her eyes just got me. I think I could scrap this particular shot a few different ways just too precious ...
The sentiment says " Some Things are Felt only with the Heart"....

Scrap around the World May Challenge.

This is the mood board and sketch associated with this months..May challenge Scrap around the world.
What caught my eye was the Torquise colour I knew I had the perfect photo to use I did bring a little pink & mauve into it. My title is "Mermaids" as that is what I thought of when I saw the girls standing on the beach with a breeze blowing their hair & moving gently their beautiful dresses [ they look blue in the prints but in real a beautiful torquise chiffon] made me think "mermaids out of water" I followed the sketch pretty well I think I certainly made use of anything I had in torquise.

Purple Pumpkin May sketch challenge

Have a spot of bother sometimes with sketches , I know this is not at all over done rather plain but I could not think of anything else to add. I thought too much would take it away from the subject photo.
This was taken on the ocassion of my eldest son's wedding reception. It is not often I can get both sons together at the same time,  I did not want to over crowd it.
I have used PP embellishments but for the button on the brown & blue flower.

A layout for my collection

 Thought I would add a few pieces of my work just so you know that I do not just do layouts for competions
I do quite a lot of playing in my scrappy area. This is an old photo that one of my sons friends took as part of I think an art assingment, I thought it would make for a great "funky" layout.
Some times it takes me a few days to get a layout just right , well to the way  I would like it to be.

My niece Kimberly.
Now this one is of my niece age of a few months not really sure exactly , she herself is now a mother of a baby girl. I thought I would do this layout for her and when I get some of her new born baby daughters photos I intend to do a special album .
