5th LO with my May Madness CKCB kit

Hi again

I was up with he lark today and wanted to set about a challenge using a sketch from Scrap 365 for their monthly challenge. Here is the sketch used and the link to their post. 

I decided to also add it to a challenge over on UKS where we were tasked with creating a LO using shaped paper.. So I used a piece of shaped paper as my background and gutted it so I could add the extra piece of paper to my photo montage.

Now as you can see I haven't faithfully stuck to the original sketch but I think you will agree the basis is there.

I wanted to use some beads on here and try out some faux stitching too.. Which you can see I have done.. The tassel is a long forgotten one that I have had in my stash for eons! It is a Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen one... I still have one left too.. where on earth I'm going to use it I don't know! Then I added some co-ordinating tags from my kit and some stickers then I finished it off with a cluster of embellishments and some hand made flower rosettes. 

I just really wish I could remember which year this set of old photos came from! I must ask my friends and see if they can remember.

Anyway.. Thanks for stopping by.. See ya all soon!



  1. The shaped paper really sets off you page, Elaine. I like how you have placed the photos and the cluster of embellishments under your journalling is lovely.
