The Lambert Experience

Early last month I brought my two DDs to watch Adam Lambert's Trespassing Concert here, as they're both huge fans of his. We managed to get some rather nice shots at the concert and I've been wanting to scrap them for my girls but could not find the right papers until I came across this one from Reminisce - perfect! And it had matching stickers to boot!

I mounted the photos and stickers onto cardstocks and used pop-up dots to give the layout a 3D look.

Thanks for dropping by! :)

Materials used:
Patterned Papers - Reminisce - Signature Series Collection - Rockstar
Cardstocks - Bazzill
Stickers - Reminisce - Signature Series Collection - Rockstar Die-Cut Stickers
Alphas - Prima Marketing Alphabet Stickers

Leme Love - Mini-Album

I've been so hooked on my mobile's Leme Cam of late that I've been taking loads of pics on it, wherever I happen to be. I love the various effects you can create with the app, and it's really fun to play with! I've finally decided to put together some of the photos I've taken with my Leme Cam, into a little mini-album, using Pink Paislee's Artisan Album.

Here's a look at the cover.

It's reveal day at My Creative Sketches, and here's the new sketch for April.

For my DT layout, I used papers from Graphic 45's Secret Garden collection, and created a shadow box-like frame for the layout. I then lined the background with some muslin cloth for a soft yet textured look.

Here are more views.

So hop on over to the MCS blog for a look at the awesome prize for this month, and join in the fun! Can't wait to see your layouts!
