to my gorgeous kids - love from mum

Hello, hope you are having a great week!!  I'm here to share a LO for the May challenge at 
Scrap for Help. I'm really enjoying their challenges each month - this one is all about
old envelopes.  Here's what I've come up with:
 For this LO I've printed out images of old envelopes and stamps to make a background.  Then I've used an old white envelope that I've found in my stash and made it as a pocket for one of the photo's to sit in.
Here are some close-up's:
 ... this tag is actually a clothing tag from Cotton-On - talk about recycling, hey!!
 ... a shipping tag with some twine (air-mail colours - from Lil Red Rocket) ...
... some of the background papers - I've also done some stamping with my Carte Postale stamp...

So there you have it, a fun little page.  I'm finding that when I don't have a sketch to work with, I'm very often using my 'bunting style' design.

I'm counting down the days till the Handmade by Suzanne scrapbooking retreat - there are still a few spots available, so if you would love a fun, scrappin' weekend away, check here for details.

Thanks for visiting me today ☺☺
