Get Picky!

I love visiting the Get Picky challenge site. The CT there are so talented and always leave me wanting to hide in my scrap space and create! I also like that I get challenged to move beyond using a single photo on ym page :)
This month's challenge provided this image as inspiration... Oh yeah...this looks so very similar to my own lounge room at Christmas...NOT!! I wish!
So many gorgeous things to be inspired with in this pic :)
I liked the white tone on tone colour scheme, with just some hints of blue. I also liked the warmth and homey-ness of the pic. I was inspired to scrap these older photos of my brother and I on Chistmas morning.
Sadly these photos- originally polaroid photos - have been severely water and mould damaged :( These are scanned copies, and although they printed out okay, they still aren't great photos.

I tried to make a flourish using some string...I like the way that it sort of sits and the homey-throw rug at the end of the couch- touch that it adds to the LO, even if it didn't go quite as planned ;)



I love these little blue Prima flowers, they added just the right amount of blue to the page...thanks again to lovely Lauren ;)



Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are managing to stay dry wherever you are...our town is now completely sold out of bread and milk, and I think we are about to have our main bridge go under again. Our trip to get back-to-school supplies isn't looking like going ahead at the moment!
