Hidden Treasure & Scrapfriends

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  Welcome if you are here for the first time and 'Welcome Back' if you have come again.  Your visits are truly appreciated. 

I am having a late run on challenges so decided to use my Design Team work for Embellish It  to create a page using the new release KaiserCraft 'Hidden Treasure' papers.  ... or as I was doing DT work decided to base it on the inspiration of a challenge so for this one I chose ScrapFriends.  I love their sketches but I think this is the first one done in time to enter.  They also have wonderful tutorials as well.

This is Sketch challenge #17 except I sort of flipped it upside down and moved my photo to the right side to suit both the paper and the direction of the photo (hope this is allowed SF)

and my take on the sketch. using the new Kaisercraft "Hidden Treasure" collection 
 I added some texture paste arrows and some real vintage buttons together with some very old cord alpha from myh stash. The page is of my DGS with the little wooden plane my Mum brought him.  Really I wish I had had the time to go and get the photo flipped to face the right instead of having to move the sketch arrangement but it wasn't to be.
 Of course I had to add some liquid pearls.

 Thanks Scrapfriends - it was fun playing along.   This snow layout was from another  ScrapFriends sketch.

The above "Hidden Treasure" papers are available at Embellish It - Email Joanne.  Pages will be on display there next week.

I will be back tomorrow with another in the Hidden Treasure range.

Until then....

Gorgeous layout! Aren't the Hidden Treasures papers lovely? I got to play with some for my DT work, too-- I loved the colours and vintage feel to them. :)

Great take on the sketch! I love the photo and how you worked the colors and embellishments. So whimsy too.
