I wanted to share with you my layouts I recently designed for Made with Memories using Kaisercraft Tropicana papers.
They worked so well with photo's taken in Bali in April this year.
The shop held our very first scrapbooking retreat and we took 26 ladies to Bali, where we showed them some of our favourite spots to see, shop, eat and relax.

Wow only 24 days until Christmas!!! Where has this year gone?? Way to fast for me. I just seem to run out of time to just sit and update my blog without feeling guilty because I should be ticking off all the other jobs/ideas/projects. Why is that? Is it selfish to just want to sit and blog all day?
Well time to feel guilty and sit and blog for a few hours with some of my finished projects.
Here is my one of my layouts I recently taught at Made with Memories.
When I saw these papers I was drawn to the red pokadot as it reminded me
of Disneyland and Minnie Mouse.
I knew I had some pictures from our holiday to the United States in 2012 and my husband and I visited Disneyland. It was amazing and I would love to take my children there in the near future.
I have used some Dusty Attic chipboard. Hashtag words, Word Pebbles, arrows and Script words.
Some twine and Tim Holtz Tissue Tape.
The journalling was printed onto some Kraft card stock with my printer and when I travel I try to journal in my diary daily so that I can use it on my pages.
This layout is inspired by a page map that I had found on the internet. The sketch is from Debbie Hodge. Sketch #22 October 2009. As you can see from my scribble, I used this for inspiration and I changed the photo sizes and flipped the pages. My interpretation is the sketch below.
I find using page maps help with the creative block, sometimes I just can't find the inspiration to create my own designs or I am time poor, so this allows me to complete layouts quicker.
This is the completed layout and I have to say it really works well with my photo's.
Now to find the time to get the album completed.
Who needs sleep right?
