I like to try and manage at least one of the weekly challenges on UKS, so last night I sat down and completed this weeks. I had already chosen my photo & papers & had an idea of what I wanted to do on Monday when the challenge went live but it took all week to find time to do it (well it is a weekly!) For this weeks challenge we had to use this sketch

We also had to use pink and/or blue, and include punches and/or stamping. I picked another photo from my brothers wedding and came up with this

The photo is of myself and my brother. I admit I did a lot of tooing and froing in my head over what I wanted to do for this layout. I thought about using strips of Washi tape behind the photo instead of paper, then I thought about misting through the negative of a punched flower where the butterflies are but as you can see I did neither!

I matted the photo onto two different pieces of Crate Paper from the Pocket full of Posies Quirky Kit, and then onto some netting for texture also from the kit. The blue punched paper is Teresa Collins from the Roly Poly Lite Quirky Kit. Above this I layered a piece of Washi Tape and a MME sticker.

I then stamped some butterflies onto a piece of Papermania scrap and used the beads from the Quirky Kits as a trail. I slipped some hidden journaling into the Alison Kreft bag from the kit and slipped it between the layers.

Love & hugs


  1. Fabbie! Love the dynamism caused by the different patterns - modern, but girly. Gorgeous. :)
