Scrapping with Melissa

This week I visited my friend Melissa - it has been way too long since we last caught up in person and I had an amazing time chatting and scrapping at her place.  Spending time with Mel is good for the soul, and I haven't been so productive in months - I finished off three layouts, a card and an OTP, and started two other layouts which I later finished at home.  Some of them I've already shared this week and the remaining two I'm sharing now:

The layout is based on the May sketch at Get Picky ~

I used: Prima 'Fairy Flora' papers, October Afternoon 'Fly a Kite' label stickers, American Crafts glitter Thickers, striped ribbon (received in a prize pack from The Ribbon Girl). The felt stars and the copper coloured pearls were from Melissa's stash, and I also used her new EK Success 'Binding Edge' punch. THANK YOU!

The paper is quite busy and you can't see the detail in the photograph, so here are a few little detail shots:

I'm also entering my layout at:
# Paper Crafting Journey ~ Anything goes / favourites
Lots of favourites here - papers (Prima), alphas (Thickers), technique (doodling around edges of papers and elements)

The card was made with just a few bits and pieces left over from other projects, together with a few more of Mel's pearls:

I'm entering my card at:
