Your prize this month is this selection of pastel coloured goodies

I made a bookmark for my project this month and I'm adding that into the prize aswell.

Here is what our lovely design team have created

Last summer my friends daughter got married in Skiathos. We were lucky enough to go to the wedding which was truly amazing. The ceremony was on the beach literally feet away from the sea. My husband took the photograph of the rings on the heart shape stone which he just happened to find. To create the string of hearts I used a Dylusions stamp and Gelatos, the two hearts have been made using fusible film and angelina hair and the stamp is by PaperArtsy.

With 3 nieces it was easy peasy to select a photo to create a layout with Pastel colours:

     My niece Katerina ... I would like to thank Kerry, as she sent 
me most of the things that I used on my page!  


These colors were perfect for a vacation photo of my stepdaughter. I added one of the selfmade flowers that Kerry sent me and the bling arrows as well, thanks !

I really wanted my Craft Garden flowers from Kerry to be the basis for my card creation.  I started layering up goodies with a vintage look and knew the card needed a larger element, so I made the dressform diecut.  I used crepe paper for the skirt, to tie in with the background papers.  A few beads from a broken bracelet and some bling in the corner added a bit of flash.  I always associate Pastel colors with babies, so this card was a good out-of-box project for me.

I decided to use a stamp I have had for ages. I love the out come as I usually use at least one bold colour in my creations. So this was a great challenge for me.

This is my march project and I used vellum to soften 

the colours of the flowers that I stamped.

Chris / CS Designs ...

Kerry sent me such a wonderful package with so many pretty things, I  was totally inspired and wanted to make something extra special for this months challenge. What I came up with in the end is an Art Tag Book which includes a total of six paper art tags and one beaded and wire bookmark. Thank you Kerry for the fabulous goodies, I had a blast creating with them. :)
