1st Sept - Wings

Today's challenge is something a bit different! We have a word for you to be inspired by ......
 The word is Wings, you can interpret it in whichever way you like! 

Here's what the design team came up with:

I did love this challenge as I knew right from the start what the theme would be about - airplanes! The photo is from my last trip to Stockholm - we were already in Sweden when I took the photo:
I made my own banner with die cuts inspired by Jen Kinkade:
And I since I love typewriters but I don't have one, I printed the journaling using typewriter font on vellum and sewed on a tag:

 I went with the most beautiful wings there is, a butterfly! I love this photo I took of this Peacock butterfly in our garden. The title is also a name of a bird, see what I did there?!

If I had wings I would fly - but I don't have any :( So what else would I try to fly?! Exactly - I would try Kite Surfing! Preferably at a Cornish Beach while the sun sets... A girl can dream, right?!
I used a lot of arrows and the chevron pattern to create this layout "Up!" along with some stamped patterns as well. The bold patterns of the colourful papers by My Mind's Eye 'Cut & Paste' Adorbs are the perfect fit to my photo with the rather muted colours!

My youngest son has a crush on anything that flies, is very creative, and even build his own RC planes. They just don't work as good as he hopes for some times :-)


Well it doesn't quite have wings, but it does soar alongside all those other winged things, so I chose kites.  Kite flying is something that my kids never seem to tire of.

I have often wondered how it would feel to have wings and fly. Maybe going on a carousell like this is as close as you get? Now I have to admit I wasn't brave enough to try it but my 9 year old son did... and he loved it.
