Be filled with PEACE - Scrap Africa - Studio Calico Dec kit

This month's challenge at Scrap Africa is hosted by Jowilna Nolte and the challenge is to use postage stamps on your layout, old, new, rubber stamped stamps whatever you have in your stash.  I found this rub on stamp by Pink Paisley in my stash and decided to use my December Studio Calico kit for the challenge.

Here is my layout
Supplies used:  Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned papers:  Studio Calico - Looky There and Constellation, Crate Paper - Sleigh Ride Deck the Halls; Basic Grey - Fact or Fiction, Echo Park - For the record 2 Handwritten; Stamp rub on: Pink Paislee- Butterfly Garden; Brads: Dear Lizzy; Twine: WeR Memory Keepers; Alphabets: Basic Grey, Paper Trunk and the word PEACE as well as the banner was cut with the Silhouette.

The photo I used is of K sitting on the highest dune in Sardinia Bay. The beach is in a nature reserve and boasts unspoiled beaches without any development.  The dune has cut off the road to the beach a few years ago and to get access to the beach you now have to climb over the dune.  Sitting on the dune and just looking at the beauty of the beach and the ocean is one of my happiest things to do.  This photo was taken over the Easter weekend of 2010 shortly after our son lost his sight.  We were not in a good place and it felt as if we were in the middle of a storm...but after an hour or two of just sitting and being quiet....peace returned and we left refreshed.


We hope that these wonderful projects will inspire you and hopefully you will play along with this challenge!

Now for the goodies up for grabs!

There is a R250 valued prize from celebr8, which will be randomly chosen.


You have until the 31st January to submit your projects.

  9. I know the picture was taken a few years ago, but it brought tears to my eyes just thinking of what a terrible and difficult time it must have been and it makes the picture more touching.
