With a voucher for £10 to spend online

I made a layout about one and only time I went swimming last year...

I think this paper is one of my favorite designs. It´s from Fancy Pants. Love the warm yellow and orange colours. I ripped the paper in two spots and added some green fun papers that made me think about bubbles. The green paper is from my scrap stash. Also added some fun stickers like the tab, circles and photo corners.

I don´t usually cut in my photos but I thought this circle shaped photo fitted the rest of the design so well. Also I think it make you have a second look.

Now I hope you pop over to

I have coloured with ProMarkers and Faber Castell pencils. I made the pattern on her hairband with a white gel pen. I also moved the flower and put it in her hair.

This card took it´s own way. Will add some sort of sentiment later. Think the colours work well together. Make it feel like summer. I used two different dies, hearts and the white flowers steams. I also used a lot of punches, butterflies and the twigs.
