I didn't make the Chatterbox Design Team so I can share my layouts now! My instructions were to create a layout using just the Artsy.liscious Alabaster range and another "free" project using anything from the box of goodies they sent me.

I used this beautiful photo of Tassy's BFF Bella for my Alabaster layout. I've always loved this photo and always wanted to do an all-white layout featuring this photo. So when I got my Alabaster assignment I immediately thought of this photo. Let me tell you, for someone who loves working with lots of colour it was hard doing an all-white layout! But I was happy with it. I like the texture... For my other layout I used a recent photo of Catherine and I. We've been friends since I was 6 and she was 9. We are so lucky to have both moved so far from where we grew up, and still ended up living only 10 minutes from each other. I might still add some journalling...
My baby sister Charlotte is coming down for the weekend. Scrapping, baking, music and movies are on the agenda. I can't wait!!!

Not quite organised for my RAK yet. Hopefully that will be in my next post!

Hi Yvette!

How are you going?

I like your layouts.

Gorgeous photo of you and Catherine (say hi to her for me next time you see her).

I hope you have a nice weekend with Charlotte.

Take care. KH

The white layout is superb. Absolutely stunning. I agree, I'm so used to using heaps of colour, I would have had no end of difficulty trying to use only white and I'm sure the end result would have been nowhere near as beautiful as yours!
