More Hawaii moments

Scrapbook Challenges has started a new year of challenges and this is a double layout I have completed. When I think of Hawaii some of the things I think about are beach, sun, sand, USA and I have tried to capture these in this layout.
This was the layout, I changed the size of the photos.  I found the Bella paper called "Leaf" was just right for this.  I hope you agree.

We are having a heatwave in Sydney

Today we are having heatwave conditions in Sydney, it is currently 43c at 5.18pm and it is hot, hot, hot. I found a cool part of my house out the back and created this page. Luckily no fires in my part of New South Wales and I hope that continues.
I was inspired by a layout by Leanne Allinson in the magazine Scrapbooking with the experts No.2.  
This photograph was taken on the balcony of our hotel in Waikiki.  I loved to sit and read my book or a magazine, look at the beach, or enjoy a sunset.  It was also a good viewing area for a Pearl Harbour 72nd anniversary parade on 7th December. 
You can also see my double crown that sends hairdressers into a frenzy.  Oh, you have a double crown! No, you are the first to tell me!!!  I have heard this so many times.
I have carried the relax theme and relaxed the edges of my cardstock, I sponged with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink and then "roughed up" with a wet cloth.
Thank you Leanne for your inspiration.
Now back to trying to keep cool.  Cheers Margaret.

I have finally had to take a stance and I have had to enable "Moderate comments" as I have been getting too many JUNK comments on this blog.  I do not want any medication, handbags, shoes, etc or any other sundry things that junk mail publishers insist on sending to me.

Happy New Year to all my readers and I look forward to sharing my creations with you this year. Margaret
