Hello Everyone

I am back with another challenge :D Love me a challenge :D This one is hosted by Lucy Muraco over at Red Chi Chi and here is how it works. Each month she gives you a photo and everyone who joins scraps the same photo :D Easy Peasy!

This month the photo was of the very dashing Hugh Jackman.

And... here is my layout.

The papers I used are from We R Memory Keepers - Urban Window Collection... Boho Chic Funky and they were perfect for the colours in the photo. I also changed one of the photos to black and white.

I chose a plain background and just added some random splats of Tim Holtz Distress stain, Walnut. The edge was punched with a Knock Out punch. All edges were inked and distressed for a more masculine feel.

I added some circles and buttons, a couple of rub-ons and even a couple of flowers.

The car is from Graphic 45 and because the colours were right I fussy cut it out... the chippies were just painted and diamond glazed.

Also randomly punched the background page and added a banner or two.

You can take a look at the other submissions :

If you wish to play along just let Lucy know and she will add you to the list of participants. This was a whole lot of fun.

Thanks for taking a look :D
