June cyber crop at Home and Scrapped......

Good morning.... it's cyber crop time at Home and Scrapped and we have a Monochromatic theme happening this month.

My challenge is - with the monochromatic theme, I would like a layout done using:
- a minimum of 9 squares (any size you choose)
- 1 button
- a bird or butterfly
and finally a number in the title somewhere.

That's it....... Subject matter and colour is entirely up to you as long as you keep with the monochromatic theme.

Here is my example:
Come over and join us for a Step-by-step layout with the lovely Heather and a challenge from Karen to get the creative juices flowing.

Happy craftin'...........

More cards.......

Online Card classes - His & Hers Sympathy cards  day 3 inspired by Kristina Werner.

Online Card classes - His & Hers cards day 4 inspired by Kelly Rasmussen. I really liked her colour pallette and design although I hated the fact that the original card design did not stand up.

I kept the overally design concept but jut converted it to a full front of the card instead of a smaller front opening panel.

Another card made with scraps from the matching lay…

Is it really that long ago........

I am so not good at this blogging business......

Seriously, I haven't even put up my challenge for the month at Home and Scrapped.
Well, if you have some scrapping time between now and the end of the month you can come and play along with my challenge:

My challenge for you for the month is kind of a choose your own challenge. I watch with interest on some sites the people who choose their inspiration for a layout, from Pinterest. Some choose clothing, some artwork others linen etc. Now I know just a couple of us like to visit Pinterest so you can head there if you choose and for those others who don't do Pinterest, you can Google an image or find one in a shop catalogue or even take a photo of your own.
I want you to be inspired by Bed Linen.
Choose whatever colour, design etc. you like and then create a layout using the bed linen as your inspiration in what ever way it talks to you.
I would like you to upload your inspiration photo into the thread here and upload your layout to th…
