Together LO - The Scrapbook Store - Scrap Around the World Challenge

 ...loving my DT pack from The Scrapbook Store, with the Melissa Frances, Classic Elegance papers and elements. Lots of texture in this layout, using the Kaisercraft 'Bubbles' Template, along with texture paste - coloured using a mixture of Perfect Pearls, and Mists from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

Also this month, I have joined in the new challenge site, Scrap Around the World - I have been itching to join in with the fun of this new challenge sit,e and finally 'completed' a layout using the Inspirational Mood board and Sketch below. You can find the current challenge 'HERE'.  I adore the sketch, by Julianne!!

I was inspired by the top two images in Eila's Mood board, the softness of the gold/white/pink colour hue's. I love charms of all types, so added in a key which is available in TSS 'HERE' ...
These photographs are just precious!  Three best friends, having the time of their life (no doubt) on the beach - where I have no idea, who they are .... no idea sadly, but are in my photo collection.  Hopefully one day I will find out the story behind these photographs.
Cheery Lynn Design dies were used behind each of the photographs and also mini dies beneath the other flowers. A complete list of dies with links can be found below in the materials list. I grouped together flowers in an arrangement - some flowers were from my stash basket and others from TSS.
Of course, I embossed the title 'Together'...... using Stampendous embossing powder - Aged Silver - which really looks like a light golden colour, beautiful actually.
Well, that is it for me today ... thanks for visiting!!
