'Time Stood Still' for Inkido (and two challenges) and info about the current theme at Paper Issues.

 Time for a new layout as part of the Inkido DT and also time overdue to share about the latest theme over at Paper Issues.

First of all, here is my very latest page using the Beautiful Memories collection.

 I started by layering two sheets of pp, one of them embellished with a border around the edges. 
After sewing  the pages together I added some gesso through a stencil. 

I actually followed TWO sketches to make this page,... yes I know it sounds crazy... 
But I had copied from 3 sketch-challenges that I wanted to play along with, and the two next to eachother looked strikingly similar.

The first one: Scrap & Music where you use the sketch and include a line from a specific lyric.
I did not read the rules very closely at first so I originally put another title on my page, but was able to change it for a line from the lyrics instead. :-)

The second one is by Ulrika aka *Lillblomman*, my DT friend from both Papirdesign and Inkido.

Can you see how similar they are..?

And here are some closeups:

The gorgeous bling swirl is actually a lesftover from one byPapirdesign that I already used on one of my PD lo's. And the gorgeous mini roses are from Papirdesign as well. Their flowers have a consistently high quality!

 As it was very sunny wnen I photographed my lo I think the colours look a bit faded. 
They are actually slightly more saturated IRL.

 I am also excited to share with you the fact that Becky Higgins and her PL is sponsoring the current theme over at Paper Issues.
Definitely something to feel happy and proud about!!
 She is giving away a Project Life Core Kit which would be so cool to win!! 
You can find all the details on the PI blog.
  There are also chances to win one of Becky's Project Life sample kits.

  20. Den är helt underbar vännen! Älskar din stil! Dessvärre får man inte kombinera mina utmaningar med andra ;) Men tack för att du inspirerades av min skiss i alla fall och vad lustigt att de var så lika. Fast det är ju många skisser, går ju inte att återuppfinna hur många gånger som helst ;) STOR kram!
