Hello - I am back again to showcase some of our amazing DT's inspirational work!

First up we have Jo's layout:
By Jo Baker

My son has tried many different hobbies and activities this year whilst trying to find something that takes his passion.  The first part of the year we tried a martial art – in his case Taekodokai – we did the trial classes, agreed that this was for him, paid the membership and bought the uniform but by the start of soccer season – Taekodokai didn’t make the cut   

However, being a scrapbooking mum and thinking this might be the start of something new and important – I did get the first night in uniform photos.  So I was thrilled when my goodies from Molossi this month included a sheet of Karate characters which allowed me to document this latest hobby.

I have kept the treatment simple – one patterned paper as the background (Bo Bunny) and another cut into a large pennant shape (My Mind’s Eye).  I have added some corrugated cardboard – simply torn from a cardboard box and the top layer ripped off to expose the ridges below and then some white acrylic painted swiped over it.

As well as the Molossi chipboard I have used some Dusty Attic chipboard – also available through Molossi – the frame which I painted white and wrapped some blue and white twine down one side of and the large circle – also painted white are both from Dusty Attic.
To give a little more detail I have added in some stitching along the edges of the pennant piece.  I tied a few small pieces of ribbon and knotted them off on the circle chipboard and printed my journaling onto white paper and then inked the edges before cutting into paragraphs and adhering in the spaces available on my layout.

The Molossi Karate characters I  also swiped with white acrylic paint and didn’t feel the layout needed much more than a title after the addition of these active little characters   

The title is a Bella chipboard simply adhered on top of the Dusty Attic chipboard circle .

Next we have some Christmas Cheer from Eve!
