White with 1 (Duck Egg) and Off the Rail's July Challenge...

 
 
Cutting this fine with deadlines, though left late I've really enjoyed creating with both these challenges and their respective criteria.
 
 
WW1's colour is 'Duck Egg'
Just LOVE this colour!
Sewing machine got quite a run with this too!


 
 
Managed to photograph it fairly true to colour in this horrible weather we are having.....

Here's something completely different from me....
clean lines!!
(Weeeeeeeeeeeeeell as clean as you'll get from a shabby scrapper!!!)
 
I've got to say, Off the Rails certainly brought me out of my comfort zone
  with this mood palette:
 
 
 
By this afternoon, the weather had deteriorated so much that the light was totally awful to photograph with,  so did my best.....
 
Paige practicing for dance comps.....

 
I love the middle photo of her dress completely billowed (not great line of legs as they were going very fast with spinning trying to conquer the awkward foot positioning of the dance- something she was working on to get right before competing - and she did! Lets say she got very frustrated with herself at times)
She won!

Yes, these are definitely gorgeous....I totally agree with Julie on that! Seriously so cool the stitching and texture on the kitty page. I have never heard of the color "duck egg" before, so I just learned something, too. Love how you stitched through the lettering, and that little bit of string under kitty's paw is brilliant. Really fabulous dance page, too. Love the column of photo blocks. So bold and graphic, and then the angled photos add such fun!
