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.
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!


  1. You did a fabulous job with this weeks Twisted Sketch. The clashing prints are awesome especially because the colors are so contracting. And the funky brads…LOVE IT (then again I love all things stars…my daughters named after one)
    Glad Twisted Sketches helped you scrap your photos...aren't challenges great!!!

  2. Well I was just about to leave some lovely compliments about your fab layouts but after that vampire comment I am thinking twice! I'll have you know two people at work commented on my tan today actually!
    I love the maltese dish title with the combo of stamps and those awesome glitter thickers and the different strips of paper on the card are so awesome, love the way you scalloped that polka dot tape! and I like the colour co-ordination in the bottom layout and the strip of buttons - super cute!

  3. Love your LO!! :) cute buttons,what can I say..you did a antastic job on the LO! :)
