Scrap friends!

Second post for today... I've added some pages to a few of my mini albums. Both of them feature some amazing ladies I met online through scrapbooking - and they have become special friends.

This layout is another for my 'Macleay Island' birthday album:

I was inspired by these challenges:
# Frosted Designs ~ Sketch Along Tuesday
# Secret Crafter ~ Pink, cream and brown
I thought papers from MME 'Lost and Found - Madison Avenue' were perfect for this colour combination.
# Lollipop Crafts ~ Shabby chic
I added some lace and jute string, and also made a handmade flower from coffee filter paper.

The second layout one is another for my 'Book of Me'.  The photograph was taken in 2008 when I met up with some online scrap friends at the Brisbane Scrapbooking Convention. I was inspired by the April sketch at Show Us Your Stuff, and my handmade elements are the layered flowers:

I'm also entering this one at:
# Paper Sundaes ~ Sundae bar
I used lots of yellow, and Sassafras Lass 'Mix & Mend' diecut stickers.
