Purple Pumpkin Sketch

Christmas Angels
This is the layout I did using the sketch over at Purple Pumpkin here:
I've used some Purple Pumpkin Twine, Buttons and a red Doily.

  A close up of the embellishments: I've cut the red doily in half so I could use some at the top and bottom of the page.

Purple Pumpkin June Sketch

I did this one using June's Purple Pumpkin

I love Purple Pumpkin embellishments, on this LO I've used a PP doily under a PP Lollypop Flower, a little Spotty Button and I've used one of their  Spotty Button Tops although I did swap the button top around to suit my page colours.

The photo was taken while on holidays in Qld. staying with my lovely niece and her family.

My journaling is a quote: Family like branches on a tree, we grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one. Each of our lives will always be a special part of the other.
