Happy Day - April Hip Kit

Hello there.  I found this page that I made during the time that I was absent from I didn't share it before.  The photos were taken at Tanglewood in Ramsgate while we were on vacation on the South Coast of KZN.

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Amy Tangerine, Elle's Studio, Pink Fresh Studio, Maggie Holmes Bloom; Cardstock: American Craft; Letter Stickers: American Craft; Flowers: Petaloo; Enamel dots: My Minds Eye; Washi Tape; Pink Fresh Studio; Rub ons: Shimelle; Die cuts: Shimelle; Other:  PanPastels and a Prima stencil.

As you know I love to use Laura's sketches.

Some close ups:
 I used PanPastels and stenciled the butterflies onto the background using a Prima stencil.

 The pretty butterflies were cut from a Maggie Holmes Bloom patterned paper.

 I matted my banners onto a dark pink Elle's Studio paper.

 A few flowers and some rub ons to finish it off.

 The leaves cutfile is by Wilna Furstenberg.

The Alpha thickers were from a very old sheet that I got in a Studio Calico kit years ago.

It always makes me feel good when I use things that has been part of my growing stash...but that does not mean it is getting any less.

Thank you for visiting my blog today ♥

  3. Your pages always make me smile Lynette. I love the way you interpret sketches, managing somehow to have lots of detail, whilst maintaining an uncluttered graphic design.
