A is for Apertures

A is for apertures -
or in this case starbursts!
The inspiration for this months layouts was taken from my talented friend Anita.She has made these two stunning layouts based on the same idea (see below).  She kindly agreed to me featuring them on this blog for the first monthly challenge from Scrapology. Please take a look on her blog Inky Blossoms for even more inspiration - you won't be disappointed.

  6. I love this layout- saw one of them on UKS and loved that one. I will definately have a go at this one as soon as the holiday washing is out of the way!

  7. How exciting - it is up and running! Everyone's layouts are so individual and I love how they have been interpreted differently. Good luck to everyone with this venture, and well done Jill for being first off the mark!

  8. Wow it all looks great Lynn!

  9. I've found my missing MOJO!!!

  10. What lovely LOs and a great use of double sided paper. Definitely an idea to squirrel away. Well done too Jill, it's beautiful.

  13. I have had my Eureka moment today!!! Here is my layout :)

  14. Hi Sarah, thanks for playing along with us. I like the striking simplicity of your page without the use of patterned paper. The frilled edge for the grass is a lovely touch.... very effective..... and the little cluster of daisies finish it perfectly.
    Warmest wishes Anita.

    My layout is here

  16. Finally got a chance to play yesterday - my layout is on my blog, I will email you the link for some reason I cannot get my link to paste into the comment box.
