September challenges at Blue Fern Studios and More than Words

Had a wonderful crafty day with my friends on saturday, so hard to believe that it's mid September already. I am still in the mood for crafting my beach scenes. Still many beautiful pictures of Cuba that I want to put on paper.
 
For this page I was inspired by 2 challenges: Blue Fern Studios & More than Words:
 
Let's start with the Blue Fern Studio challenge that you can find here: September challenge
 
I love the color combination, the images of the beach, the flowers and the seashells.
 
 
I used a few of my most recent pieces: Doily chipboard, the By the Sea chipboard, the seashell chipboards, the flowers and my background paper.
 
 
I also recently acquired my 1st Blue Fern Studio embossing powder, and I just love it. It's perfect sandy beige color with just the perfect amount of shimmer.

Here is the beautiful image moodboard for inspiration:

My next entry for this page is for the September challenge at More than Words. This month the team used a Recipe challenge with the word Delight.
 
My option of the 2 was to use the Art Recipe. On my page you will find:
Die-cut leaves
3 Badges from Cuts2Luv
Flowers
Mists from Lindy's Spray Gang
 
The link to the challenge: Delight & Recipe
 
Now for the Delight part... Well, when I hear the word delight, I also think about Joy, or what makes me Happy. This is what Delight means to me, and trust whan I say that spending time with my family is just that... Many moments of Delight. As my boys are getting older, every moment is more and more important in my heart because pretty soon, they will be young adults and I know I will have less and less time with them.
 
One of the flair buttons also has a beautiful french saying: Apprécier les bon moments: This means appreciate the good moments... Isn't it just perfect ???
 
 
 
I have this frame in our living room that I use to place my family pages. This is how on a daily level, I get to remember the moments we have shared together.
 

Now everyday, I can see and remember this delightful event. Do you showcase your work in your home?

Thanks to both teams for the inspiration. Hope you enjoyed my take on your challenges.
