A new Scrapbook Boutique challenge and Hop begins!

Good Morning, hope you are gearing up for a fabulous Monday, as we are at Scrapbook boutique!
Today is the beginning of another Inspiration Challenge and another blog hop!

If you are following along with the blog hop you would have arrived from Narelle's blog- I bet you are inspired, if you get lost, you can always head to the SB blog and start from there!

The prize is the Echo Park - Holly Jolly set
You just need to leave a comment on each of the DT gals blogs (remember we have a new team member Sue) and a final one on SB Blog,  the  random winner will be drawn from there!
The hop will be open for 1 week, closing midday Saturday 17th, the winner will be announced on the SB blog on Sunday 18th. 
 Unfortunately the blog hop prize (as is the inspiration challenge) only open to anyone with an Australian mailing address.

We also have for you, our regular monthly inspiration challenge!
Make a creation using the gorgeous inspiration photo, and  you could be the winner of the $30 gift voucher to Scrapbook Boutique
I have been inspired by the black, white and silver combination.
I made this for my Hubby's 40th birthday late last month, but with the school holidays and DD destroying my  1st coloured image with crystal effects, it was put on the back burner!
But anything good is worth the wait!
I have coloured Luka in DH favourite football team Collingwood colours, perfect for the inspiration pic!

The Recipe:
Stamps: La La Land Stamps- Footy Luka, MFT Banner die alphabet
Cardstock: SBBSmooth White, SBB Smooth Black, Moss Cardstock,  mat silver paper
