Feel the Rush and The Sky is the Limit

Hi everyone,
I want to thank everyone who congratulated me on my blog, on facebook and through personal emails. I am so ever thankful for the wonderful friends and talented artists I’ve made around the world.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!!
Today I’m sharing 2 layouts one designed by me and the other designed by my son. After he saw me design my layout about an amusement park ride called “Windseeker” that we both rode together, he decided he also wanted to scrap it. It was such an honor for me to have him design and like something I do. I gave him the same picture and here is the result.

I followed a sketch form a new challenge blog I found called Skissedilla. Its a great blog with some extremely talented mixed media artists!!

We used 3 main colors: RED, YELLOW and BLACK  for the Scrap Africa Challenge using 3 colors of the flag of South Africa (below)

Here is my take on the sketch!!

Here is my son’s design. He got so excited when I said I would put it on my blog

Here is the sketch

    Keren your LO is amazing! and your son made such a wonderful project as well!
    I just want to let you know that Skissedilla doesn't allow to combine challenges so you probably will need to decide which challenge you want to enter. With us it is all fine as long as you add a link to Scrap Africa in your post :-)))
