Guest Design Team Spot at Purple Pumpkin

Good morning!

Sam over at Purple Pumpkin is currently looking for 2 people to guest design over at Purple Pumpkin. As I absolutely LOVE her stuff and I have quite the little stash of her goodies, I thought why not give it a go! All I had to do was post a layout of my favourite page- EASY PEASY! So with some consultation of a few friends I actually picked out my page that I did for PP July Sketch..Here it is again

Such a delight

So why not give it a go!
Wish me Luck!

Rolled Roses

I recently asked the talented Krissy Christie how to make the rolled roses I had seen on her blog, and she did a tutorial for me- how lovely of her! So I gave them a go on a layout for my 52 week album.

I used some gorgeous Echo Park on this layout. So head on over to Krissie's blog if you would like to give these flowers a go.
