scrapbooking top 50 Australia May challenge

National Scrapbooking top 50  Australia  challenge,
Another new challenge to try, a change is as good as a holiday, they say, so changing my challenges , give me new directions, that i may have not tackled before,

this month for May is a tic tac toe,  my eyes usually fall for  the blues always before any other  colour,  i was going though some old photos from expo days and here i am in grey, a colour i rarely use these days.  i could have gone for the blues,  but the flowers in the background     just happened to be  orange and yellow,   so created a new direction for me to follow.

I have  many kits,  that i bought when i worked, i will do them , once i  finish work, but  6 years later , they are still  there, so i went though them and  i found some papers that had the right colour scheme,
I have used Basic grey  papers second city  roscoe village , sec  4703
                                                  second  city southport           sec 4706.
i have used grey butterflies  washi tape, another   product in my stash, i dont even remember buying that ,so  must have been a present.
I have used yellow   rose resins and other flowers from my  abundance of flowers.
I have inked in distressed in spiced marmalade
Chipboard letters are  coloured in with Kaiser-fusion grey   with glossy accents over  the top

 hope  you enjoy this ,as much as i  created it ,
until next time , have a good day.
