'So Happy Together'

Don't you just love it when you follow someone and they lead you to a happy place?

I have been following Lizzy Hill for a while now, our styles are very different but our tastes are the same...we often discover that we have the same things in our stash! Anyway, Lizzy is on the DT for ScrapFriends and I have to tell you they have the nicest sketches I have seen for some time :0)

With my new found scrapping time I was eager to give their latest one a go and will certainly be back tracking as there isn't one I don't LOVE!

So here is another lo for the Italian album of my Mum and Dad. Completely different to what I would normally do...3 4 x 6" photos on one page??? Unheard of! However, I do kind of like it :0) Of course being this far removed from my comfort zone I had to return to a white background!!

Sadly we are back to grey days here in the UK and the flash has caught the edges of the photos, but you get the idea :0)

Lots of washi tape loveliness and a resourceful bit of crafting...the orange strips are the packaging from my new Elle Studio stamps!

This title is a freebie that I found on Pinterest. The heart and star stamps are super old Hero Arts - I am trying to use stamps on all my layouts - especially the old ones :0)

The 'comfy' sticker is Crate Paper, and the label at the bottom is typed, then die cut on the GC and then edged with Pro Marker's a bit of a trend in this craft room at the mo!

Elle Studio striped cut out, arrow from Studio Calico, the heart stamp is MME and the 2 tag is another freebie from Pinterest - I must start making a note so that I can give them a shout out and a thank you! The background stamp is from Prima
So hop on over to ScrapFriends and have a play with this sketch:

Thanks so much for popping in,
