I played at The Color Room {All Paired Up Layout}

Finally I got to play at The Color Room this week.

I used Sketch 183 from Creative Scrappers as my starting point.

Only problem is I thought Friday was Thursday!?!
{until I received the reveal letter on my BlackBerry...}
So I missed the deadline...(gave myself a slap!!)

So I was officially "too late" but nonetheless I'm back there :)

 These are my daughter's best school friends together with their
partners at their school graduation dance.

 I used a doily that I folded down the centre to reduce the size.

And finally got to use this beautiful embellishment from Pink Paislee.

 And some lovely new Prima flowers I bought online recently.

 I glittered up these old Heidi Swapp chipboard alphas.

Things are getting a little "Holiday Hectic" around here now!
The end of the term here in South Africa is always
"crazeeey days!!!"  Kids are writing exams{which means
"mum's taxi" is operating at all sorts of different times
throughout the day} & Cami is in the middle of a string of
performances at her dance academy so it's all "go-go-go!"

Very pretty LO. I love the embellishments. They're all so pretty.
And I love how you adapted the sketch to three larger photos (much more practical!)
