Berry71Bleu! This is the first time I host any kind of challenge--so I'm quite excited & a bit nervous...
After a bit of deliberation, I decided to go with a 'You Color My World' theme. The concept is to create a project based on a person(s) that adds 'color' to your world--that just brightens your day. That one person(s) that just gives your life meaning. It can be more than one person & it can even be a pet! I have my own fur baby--so I'm very much aware of how much joy a pet can bring into someone's life. So pets are included in this theme. The challenge is to use paint in your project. You can use paint in any shape or form...splash it onto your background, use it to color your embellishments such as chipboard or flowers--the possibilities are many, just let your creativity be your guide.
At first I was going to scrap my newborn son--what can add more happiness & joy to someone's life than their first child right? Then I thought...hmmm, can't leave Toby my fur baby out--he taught me the meaning of unconditional love! Then after more thought I realized that I wouldn't have Toby or my son if it weren't for my husband. So I based the page on him--the beginning of it all & the reason as to why I have the family that I'm part of today.
I'm a cautious person & take my time to make any life changing decisions. If it weren't for my husband giving me those much needed nudges neither Toby or my newborn son would be here today. How grateful I am today that he gave me those nudges--my two boys complete my world & are my two little rays of sunshine. So this project is dedicated to my husband...with much love!

DecoArt purple & blue twinkle paint. I especially liked working with the twinkle paint--as you can see, this paint gave my chipboard cogs a nice shimmery & glittery final touch.
The splatters seen in the background were made with the 'Splats' stamp set by Recollections.
Make sure you head on over to the Berry71Bleu blog & play along! You have until the end of March to play & this month's sponsor DecoArt has provided us with some of their fabulous products as the prize to the lucky winners! Looking forward to seeing all of your lovely works of art.
