Hi everyone.....the month is "March-ing" along isnt it? ( sorry lame joke!) Its sort of compulsory to tell a joke on St Patrick's day isnt it? So...... Top of the morning to ya!!! Have a great day, and luck of the Irish to ya!

This month I was lucky enough to receive the Kaiser collection Blubelle to play along with. Love this collection for the pinks, apricots and blues which are warmed up with the tan colours.
I think these papers are perfect for those warm autumn photos we are taking at the moment.

The page I have made here, was taken in autumn a couple of years back when we rode the Otago Rail Trail with a bunch of mates. I used a little texture paste through a stencil in the background, and then just layers of papers under the photo.

As usual, I try to place design elements in a triangle to draw the eye into the photo..... notice the flowers and the doilies I have used to do this?

A relatively simple page, but one I am super happy with.

Thanks for looking, and catch up with you real soon with another Kaiser creation!

Hi everyone!

Sharon here with another share of my layouts created with the awesome Telegraph Road collection.

I told you last time about how wonderful this collection is.....I think I could use it for a month and not tire of it. Such pretty colours, and designs. Perfect for feminine pages!

In these pages, I have used a lot of texture ( as usual) with gesso and texture pastes, and color shine mists to create a background, then layered up lots of pieces of papers to showcase the photo.

Just love these two  photos of my daughter who is on her OE with her (now) fiance ! their engagement photo taken in the Sahara Desert is just perfect, and the pink hues of the photo just screamed out for the telegraph road collection. ( Isn't it just the most cute photo ever?)

without further ado........TELEGRAPH ROAD

Thanks for looking, and will catch up soon with some more Kaiser goodies!
