Childhood Memories & small giveaway!

Hello everyone! 

I made this layout to showcase some Purple Pumpkin goodies!

Don't forget, there is a sale on the 25th HERE at 7pm (Brisbane time) which is 12pm EEST Greece time) and you better be quick because they sell out FAST!!!

My layout is based on Melenia's inspirational sketch for Get Creative and the colors are from White with one challenge. (they look a bit yellow but they are cream/vanilla)
I must also say that I was very much inspired by one of my favorite scrappers Belinda Spencer!

Here is the sketch:



This is ME aged around two years old.. I think...LOLOL

Aren't they the cutest ever????

1. Συγχαρητήρια για την δημοσίευση!!!!!!! Αυτό το αίσθημα όταν παίρνεις το περιοδικό στα χέρια σου, είναι μοναδικό!
2. Τι να πω για την ερμηνεία του σκετς - όχι απλά to the point, αλλά και με πολλά πολύτιμα διακοσμητικά, καθένα στην θέση που πρέπει. Σαν να βλέπω και περισσότερα empty spaces (την εφτιαξες στα γούστα μου, ε;;;), πολύ misting/masking!! Συγχαρητήρια!!!!
