Colourful friends

I have some of the most amazing friends!  This is yet another layout celebrating my special birthday weekend last October, and you can see from the photograph how windy it was that day!

I've used the Design Dollies Colour Challenge colours - MONOCHROMATIC PINK, with a splash of YELLOW.  This is another combo that I set as a personal challenge - I have lots of pink stuff in my stash but I also know that not everyone is comfortable with mono pallettes, so I thought it would be fun to add a splash of another colour.

More stash-busting in this layout - Chatterbox, Basic Grey 'Lily Kate', Kaisercraft 'Lilac Avenue' (the reverse pale yellow side).  I also used:  Cuttlebug 'Moroccan Screen' EF, Prima 'Annalee' 6x6 paper pad (the text paper), Prima 'Got' flowers, Maya Road felt flowers, Green Tara roses, Kindy Glitz, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Martha Stewart 'Floral Lace' edge punch.

I'm joining in my first ever linking party here, with a 'spring fever' theme (October is the middle of spring in Australia)

I'm also submitting my layout at:
# Papertake Weekly ~ Anything goes + something old
# ABC Challenge ~ P is for ~ pink
# Little Claire's ~ Challenge 2 ~ flowers
