Happy Times....

Today's layout is based on this lovely sketch from

Scrap Africa Sketch no. 12



2 weeks ago, I "allowed" myself to let lose of the control and actually got myself some new scrapping goodies, and this Mask from Prima is one of them.


I started on this beautiful paper with the mask and pan pastel


and then work around the 2 photos I took recently at Zion National Park and Lake Mead


close up shots ......









 This is the first time i play with Scrap Africa Sketch, I thought they have some wonderful sketches there to work on, check them out!

Hi Kirsty!

I'm so glad you treated yourself to that mask – it's beautiful! And isn't Zion an amazing place? My Dad lived in St. George for a long time and we visited the Park several times.

I hope you and your family have a most marvelous Christmas!
