Welcome to our July guest ...

Sue Smith from beautiful New Zealand with her take on this month's inspiration.  I just love how she has picked up the purple and gold aspects of the painting and make it work for her own page.

I was inspired by the striking gold and purple colours, the umbrellas, the vague arches in the background and the diamond shapes on the wet paving. Such a beautiful painting! My son and DIL have just come home from Singapore and sent me this perfect pic!

Hi! My name is Sue Smith and I live in the north of New Zealand.  I have been scrapping for about 15 years and still LOVE it! After scrapping teenagers and weddings, I now mostly scrap my beautiful little grandies!! Too many photos, not enough hours!!

I love to try different scrapping styles, which is why I have enough scrapping supplies of every kind to last forever. Sorry kids! In order to get more done, this year, my motto is ‘KISS’ (Keep It Simple Sue). I’m trying!!

I am really excited to be Guest Designing this month and hope I can inspire you to join the challenge.

Here are some more examples of my work.

Thank you for joining us this month Sue.  We have loved having you join us.
