Scrapbook Boutique challenge

It's been a long time since I blogged - almost 5 years!! One of my goals for 2016 though is to get back into blogging, and what better way than with a challenge.

I have followed the Scrapbook Boutique blog for a long time and always like their monthly challenges, even when I don't get a chance to play along. They have now changed their challenges to a mood board inspiration, so this was like a signal to me to get into both blogging and creating!

I've also been doing a card class with May Flaum - Tried and True: Cards. So I was able to join the class and the challenge and use some really cute Mama Elephant monkey stamps to come up with this birthday card:


  1. Welcome back to creating & blogging. Thanks for joining us at Scrapbook Boutique. Glad you could play along and be inspired by our new moodboard. I love your card - those monkey's are so cute and the background colour is wonderful. We hope you'll play along again.
