Blonde (Again) by Julianne McKenna-De Lumen

Hello, Purple Pumpkin fans. Julianne here today, sharing a layout I recently created for PaperHaus. On the 15th of every month, they do a "Remember Me" blog segment (it's all about remembering to scrap yourself). 

I decided this was the perfect opportunity to record my recent change of hair colour. After being a red-head for many years, I have finally gone back to my natural blonde. It's still taking some getting used to. :-)

I love how the Purple Pumpkin goodies match so well with the Fancy Pants "Park Bench" paper range. They just "pop" off the page. Can you see which PP products I have used? I started with the black and white loop washi tape. I used it to help create my background. Then I added a kraft tag, and a cute camera flair button

Next, I added three blue crochet flowers to form my visual triangle, plus a gorgeous bright yellow polka dot button (I have a thing for polka dots - I just LOVE them!!!). 

And I couldn't help myself - I had to add a resin flower. They are just sooooo cute - I want to use them on everything!!!

So, do you have a favourite PP product? Leave a comment, and let me know. :-)
And don't forget to get your Purple Pumpkin July sketch entry in - you have until the end of the month, and then we will be choosing one lucky person to come and guest design with us. It could be you!

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you are having an awesome day.
