Lily Bee Monday Sketch Challenge

This sketch really caught my eye for a few reasons:
1) I love starbursts at the moment and later next week I will show you an epic layout I made using a starburst.
2) I love stars and recently purchased a big Martha Stewart star punch which I got to use on this layout.

I used the Victoria Park  6 by 6 to create the star bursts and then also the stars and journalling strips. I love this range as the colours are great - bold pink and turquoise - and the patterns are really easy to use - polka dots and my personal fav the bird cages. 
I edged everything in black and then covered it all in a liberal dose of bling - stars and circles. I even hand stitched on a tag as I am playing along with Shimelle's LSNED and my new technique was hand sewing. I am quite pleased with it and think I will have to try a few other tags like this.

 The pictures are from my trip to Thailand in 2007. They are poor quality as they are just saved and printed from facebook and the pics tend to be a bit pixilated - but I've lost contact with some of the girls I went with and the others just don't seem to understand the importance of sharing all their pictures! These were the days before I even had a digital camera - let alone an SLR!

I am pleased with this layout and feel that the star burst, bling and other little details mean that the poor quality of the photos doesn't matter so much and it was still an event that I wanted to scrap as I'm not sure I'll ever get to go to Thailand now I'm all married and broke! Haha!

  1. The starburst is a great balance for your large photo left and really highlights the exotic feel!
