Foodies Enjoying Life
I like the busy backgroung paper and all the cute elements to add to the page. The photos were taken in Japan - the land of food, or rather food heaven for Miss C and myself. We are both Japanese foodies.
 I gessoed some of the background before layering on my photos and elements. I added a banner of ribbons, trims and the cute light bulbs. The teapot and cups and just adorable.
I added a contrasting bar of green patterned paper for the top and bottom of the page.  The gold foam letters are so much fun to use.

Hey There Cuz
I wanted a grungy inky look contrasted against the soft pink background. The photo is of Miss C with her two second cousins on my side.
I love the mix of wooden and paper embellishments in the pack. Too cute. 
Cute cactus and a metal mug paperclip create a small accent corner.
I used pinks and light red inks on the background before stamping with black ink.

We Are Better Together
 Staying on the grungy background, I inked this one in blues and greens. The photo was taken in Japan Disneyland last summer.
 Loving the wood accents.
 I punched out the circles from strips of patterned paper and used the negative as an accent. The circles, I scattered around the page.

We Are Family
 I really love the background paper in this layout, love the navy blue with the dotted stripes. Such a good foil to the lighter embellishments.
 I cut the pink paper into diamonds and added the adorable houses all in a row.
A top accent corner to balance off the page.

It's International Scrapbooking Day

Hi there. Happy international scrapbooking day. Not to be confused with national scrapbooking day in the US (that one is in May), this one is world wide and for once, I am actually on time for it. I actually managed to honour the day and complete a couple of layouts. Yay.

Hello Pretty
I decided to use the Valentine's MCS kit for these two layouts. I just love the colours and patterns. I used a bold turquoise for the background as a foil for the pinks and reds. The sweet photo was taken on the coldest day of the year, hence all the clothes and the yummy hot chocolate.
I love the the little elements in the pack and the cute gold accents.
I splattered red and pink ink on the background before layering on the strips of patterned papers. 
I love the gold glitter words which I used as the title.

Products Used
Papers, die cuts from We R Memory Keepers Crush collection
Gold script words from Heidi Swapp
Ink sprays from Prima Marketing and Lindy's Stamp Gang 

My Two Crushes
 I did this layout from a sketch I found on pinterest. I love all the hearts in the paper collection. The photo was taken in December when we went to an outdoor skating rink in Hyde park.
 I drew circles on the white background before layering on the papers and embellishments. Gold is still a big trend this year and I'm loving it. Love the gold flat alphabet stickers.
A small accent on the bottom edge completes the layout.

Products Used
Papers, diecuts, felt flower and stickers from We R Memory Keepers Crush collection
So go ahead and celebrate the day in style by creating a page or two.
