'Bali Memories' by Helen Tilbury

Hi ladies!  Hope you are well!!  We have a public holiday today in South Africa, where I live, so I am soooo happy about that!!!  I am going to spend some of my day scrapping of course!  Today I am sharing a layout with you that I created using the latest sketch at Get Creative.  

I used all sorts of things from Purple Pumpkin on this page, namely the yoyo flower, wooden buttons, fabric buttons, twine, crochet flower & doily.  Hmmm, that's quite a lot isn't it?!

I'm so into yellow at the moment I don't know what to do with myself!  Everything I touch ends up swiped with my yellow inkpad!!  Above you can see a wooden Purple Pumpkin button that I have done just that to!  You can buy them HERE & recolour them to whatever colour you like (psst...I suggest yellow!)

As you can see I used a lot of twine too.  Rather than structured swirls I twisted the twine & let it drop into organic ones instead.  ♥♥♥ !!!  Buy your twine HERE - it's cheap & something with a million uses.  If it ever goes out of fashion in scrapbooking I'll be wrapping my gifts in it :)

The glittery bits you can see on the wooden buttons are Distress Stickles that I added once my inking was dry (just use a heat gun to speed up the process!) & don't worry about the print on the buttons - if you want to paint some up just flip them over & use the plain side!

See the pearl button above?  I took that off the yoyo flower & replaced it with a fabric button instead.  Of course I wasn't going to waste the pearl centre though so there it is!  Buy your patterned fabric buttons in the store HERE.  I don't see the yoyo flowers in stock right now but don't forget about the SALE coming up tomorrow - you may see some there!

Fabric button & twine!  Two very simple "staples" that look good with everything if you ask me!  Well I hope you enjoyed my page today.  It will be up on my blog some time next week. 

Don't forget about the Purple Pumpkin Design Team call as you only have a few days to get your applications in - I hope you try out!!

 If you haven't entered the giveaway on my blog I would love for you to join in - see it on my blog here!
