Lily Bee Challenge and Shimelle's starting point

Happy Easter everyone! I gave up chocolate for Lent (as did many of friends and family) and today was pleased that I could indulge in a treat. To be honest I haven't eaten very much as we have had a lovely buffet tea at my mum's and a neighbour baked us a cake so there really isn't any room, but we did get an egg at the Easter egg hunt we went to today so we have shared that. Lots more in the fridge though!

Time to share two more of my layouts from yesterday's crop.

The first is the current Lily Bee sketch challenge. I totally love all four of the new Lily Bee collections and know I will need to buy all of them but my favourite is probably Buttercup which I bought from Gottacraft. I am really liking yellow and blue right now. You can see the sketch here.

I'm really pleased with how this came out. All the papers and stickers are from the collection and I just added some golden yellow twine, some paper pearls and a couple of flowers. The photos is of three of my university friends Warren, Jeremy and Phil and Phil's wife Nora at a recent reunion. The blue clouds and sunshine fit the collection well.

The second layout is from Shimelle's Special MME Scrapbook Starting Point. The photo is from the same day and I have used MME Miss Caroline collection. I love this combination of colours - pink and aqua and I loved adding all the little brads, butterflies, flowers and tickets. A lovely starting point - thank you Shimelle.
