Inspired by Shimelle

I love following Shimelle's website, I am jealous of her travels and have been inspired by a few of her classes and sketches. 

I have started her free class, which is scrapping 6x4 photos.  This class is also on the Two Peas in a Bucket website, which is in their classes and events section.

This is the first of my pages from the February class, I can imagine there might be more.  I don't think I have quite followed Shimelle's instructions with a landscape photo.  I have chosen to keep the background plain and the embellishments came from a set that a friend in the USA sent to me for Xmas.

I hope you like it (please forgive the photo, I must practice getting the right light and angle!)

Red, red, red

This was inspired by the challenge from Scrapbook sisters blog is Red, red, red.. after being at their crop yesterday I was in the zone for crafting.  I saw a card that Karen had made in the morning crop class which was a line of punched circles which I thought, even for me, I could do....   then somehow over night this line of circles became a heart shape made out of hearts and all in red.  I hope my Husband will like the card, first in a few years!

The heart punch is dovecrafts and the papers are a mis-match of anything red and left over from my scraps box.  The gems lift it a bit and and stamping is high-lighted with glossy accents.

Here is the result...

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking
