Travel for Cuts2luv and More than Words challenge

It's my turn to show you how the Cuts2luv mood board inspired me this month. At the same time, I had another source of inspiration for this page, it came from the More Than Words challenge blog.

Let's start with the Cuts2luv moodboard, where I incorporated:
  • Color combo
  • Leaves for embellishments
  • and a photo that has trees

Now for the More than Words challenge: HERE

Word Inspiration - DELICATE

In regards to the word DELICATE, this picture was taken at the foot of the Newschwanstein Castle. The castle itself has inside so many delicate details from an architectural perspective. The outside is light and soft and probably why this was the inspiration for the famous Disney Cinderella Castle. I love the walk we had to take to get up to the castle, it has some of the most breath taking views of the Bavaria region. I am in awe of the delicate details on the Castle, when you consider that back then crown moldings and many of the woodwork like doors and furniture were all carved by hand, it is just stunning. The details in the iron work floors of wood and ceramics are also amazing. Just a wonderful site to visit.

Creative Challenge - FABRICS

On my page, I included different types of fabric from the lace flowers to soft white tulle. I love the dimension this give to the page.

Here is a closer look at the tulle:

And the lace flowers that I received as a gift from a crafty friend from the Netherlands. Isn't it beautiful?

I enjoy adding a stencil to my background, especially this Tim Holtz floral pattern. I just love the dimension it gives.

And no layout is finished without one of my favorites Cuts2luv flairs. This quote was just perfect:

This leaves flair was a perfect fit for this fall picture:
