In other news - I had my first skype conversation with my little sis yesterday. She is loving Turks and Caicos - although the mossies are loving her a bit too much! Luckily she is still pale as a vampire - so I am not too jealous!

More Maltese memories...
I have been working on these layout the past few weeks and am glad that I was helped along by some great challenges. I am slowly working my way through our holiday pics. The page below is about the nougat stalls which lined the streets of the Maltese festa (it will be a double page - the other side will follow soon.) I have used all of the concepts for Mission to create the doily one had to be my Martha Stewart stamp as I didn't have any. Cream is not a colour I would usually scrap with but I enjoyed contrasting it with the bright red, sparkly thickers and the vibrant polka dot material. I enjoyed Deborah's prompt as I used to use envelopes a lot for hidden journalling, but had somehow forgotten about them. So thanks... My second layout is one of those rare holiday pics that actually features BOTH of us! It has the capital city Valetta in the background which makes a nice backdrop. I used my new turquoise glimmer mist and a mix of different alphas. I am loving my new grey thickers- it is the BEST font! I tried clashing prints which i am always a bit scared of. The twist was to use buttons and I was going to use them to corner my pics, but went for my new funky star brads instead.
