Monday

I went for a 8.5 x 11 layout...and ended with a two-pager!



I love Sydney

So I decided to try a 8.5 x 11 layout since I discovered a pack of A4 page protectors in my stash. But had to make it a 2-pager because I didn't have enough space for the layout I envisioned...*LOL*


I had a lot of fun using my paper scraps from My Mind's Eye and lots of stickers! :)


Some stamping and a cover-up [I blotched the stamping...so I covered up with some patterned paper and distracted with a fabulous twine action...*Did it work? ].


I scanned a map and printed it out on transparency to pinpoint the exact location the photos were taken.

 

 Check out the cute little girl that was coloured with copics and paper pieced...[aka my guest Annette's colouring and paper piecing challenge].

I was inspired by the sketch at Creative Scrappers and the 'G' challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous [I am the girl in the photos and I also have a paper pieced little girl *grins*].

Supplies: My Mind's Eye patterned papers, Soft Pencil image, American Crafts felt thickers, SRM sticker, Sam and Lucy stickers,7 Gypsies sticker, Imaginisce sticker, Fiskars border punch, Fancy Pants chipboard frame, Maya Road mist, Technique Tuesday and Fontwerks stamps, The twinery twine, printed transparency, brads, black pen, paper doilies, wrinkle ribbon, copics.

P/s: Don't forget to play along with my guest Annette's colouring and paper piecing challenge...it ends on Friday! :)

It's such a beautiful page we'll give you the 'G' LOL!
I'd love to be able to think of something witty about you missing those extra inches, but guess I'll never get a job as a comedian.
