Finalist entry Kaisercraft DT 2014/15

Hello Everyone!!
It is with excitement that I'm blogging this post - my computer had deemed the 'You're a finalist' email to be Junk! But then a fabulous array of new release papers arrived - hooray!!

So what layouts to create?
The North Pole collection has lovely pastel shades of  blue and teal with a bright splash of red, finishing with a touch of black & white. A Christmas page seemed obvious but the colours are versatile so this is what I came up with...

ps, my fancy camera decided it wouldn't like to take photos at the last minute, so I have taken these with my Iphone5 but with terrible light! Wasn't my day that day!

And then I saw all the vintage tones of the Teddy Bear Collection... took me ages to find the photo of our daughters in front of the Teddy Museum sign in South Korea! Possibly would of been quicker to find one of them 'with' their teddy! So I started putting some colours and patterns together - love the Tartan! My Brother, Scott 'used' to play the Bagpipes... so I can see more layouts being created with this Collection!

Looking forward to the announcement!
