I am on a Scrap booking roll these days, frantically trying to use up my old pattern paper:-) Here is a layout I did yesterday on a MME die cut sheet.. this sheet is so adorable! I love the dotty background and the colours go so perfectly with these pictures..

This page is all about our trip to the Angsana Resort Velavaru in Maldives. I love love love the Maldives, and this place is actually built on stilts offshore.. Basically its on the middle of the ocean.. So beautiful! , you can climb right down to the sea from your deck!! That's a pic of my DH just about to go snorkelling:-)

* in case you are wondering why one pic is covered up, its because I didn't want to put a pic of me in my bikini on the net 'cos I am paranoid some wierdo would copy it:-) I know I know what you are thinking, but you can never be too careful about these things..

If you look closely you could see the strings of the bikini around my neck:-)

Back to the details...

I used tonnes of my Pink Paislee Artisan tape to make the embellishments for this page,the orange part was folded concertina, you probably know how to make these flowers, but I have to mention that the stickiness of the tape has to be removed first, I did this by taking some corn flour and dusting it all over the back.

The little purple buttons were made by punching out circles, piercing two holes and passing some string:-)

The blue arrows were cut out of an Art warehouse travel paper sheet, which I arranged around the photographs to create an interesting background..

The title was stamped with a Heidi Swapp Alpha stamp set. I love this font for this page.
One last note:
I added the journalling to sound like an advert for Velawaru. Click on the picture to see the journalling clearly:-)

Hope you have a great day!
