One week to go!

Have you entered the August Challenge yet?

If not, here's a couple more examples from the design team that may inspire you............

Leanne Jago has created this beautiful masterpiece. How gorgeous is that photo!

And here's mine....rather than use an image of a camera, I was inspired by the "pinboard" feel of the prompt and the hanging camera straps.

See you soon!

It was towards the end of 2011 when Mimoko Hair Accessories fell into place. Melissa was inspired by her beautiful daughter and niece to create quality unique pieces that would endure the adventures of an exuberant 5 year old and  look beautiful on babies too. One year on & Melissa had to employ a team to help keep up with the demands of retail, online interstate stores, markets and internet orders and are just as passionate about handmade accessories as the day they made their first hair clip.
Now, Mimoko Hair Accessories is home to all sorts of fun & exciting handmade hair accessories for girls of all ages – including teens and mums too.  Mimoko is always creating new and exciting handmade pieces for everyday or special occasions. Each piece is as unique as the princess wearing it.

Whether it be a casual day at the park or a formal event, Mimoko Hair Accessories has something for you.

Sorry about the last post, but I have been super busy this past week with numerous events! Anyway, thanks for being so patient!

So start raiding yours mum stash and get creative!
Have fun!

Hi everyone!!! Its Ebony again! Marelle is still living her dream in the states so I am here to share this months challenge with you!!
Once again it is a visual prompt and I LOVE all the ways our DT has been interpreting it so I know you will all love it too!!!!

                                 Here is your inspirational prompt...

And here is a few of the examples created by the talented design team!!!

First up is Leonie!!!! Hahaha this reminds me of my Maya!! Our children soon become sick of being our little models don't they!?? Great  background technique on this layout!!!!

Next up is Charm! Check out that cool background paper!!!!! Love thise selfies Charm! great way to interpret this challenge too!!!!

Next is Leanne Nankervis. Great challenge for scrapping those holiday pics!!!! Love the film strip and chippie camera!!!

Next is Sophie . LOVE Sophie's interpretation of this challenge! If you have a love of photography this is  a great challenge for you to scrap about it!!!
And I wasn't going to share mine yet but when I saw Sophie's layout I found it ironic that I had scrapped about her and her love of photography in my layout! We went on a mini shoot together!!!! So this photo of her with her camera was perfect to use for this challenge!!!!

Great job by all the DT girls! As you can see there are SO many ways to interpret this challenge!!! So get to it!!! We will share he rest of the DT's layouts over the month! So get scrapping and we can't wait to see your layouts!!!!
