Adore You CTMH Australasian Blog Hop

Happy New Year!
Hello and welcome to our first Australasian Blog Hop for 2017 featuring the beautiful January Stamp of the month "Adore You"
If you have arrived here from http://georgiacreatesctmh.blogspot.com.au/2017/01/ctmh-australasian-blog-hop-s1701-adore.html then you are in the right place.

I just love this stamp - it goes beautifully with our new "Hello Lovely" paper suite.  I have just spent Christmas with my two new nieces so no surprises that I used it for a baby page but this stamp would work perfectly for weddings, sweet pictures of little girls, babies, besties and significant others.  It really is versatile and a great one for playing with watercolours too.

You will notice that I kept the page sweet and simple.  This kind of stamp lends itself well to "messy" watercolours - my painting isn't the neatest but it still works.  I kept the colour palette in keeping with the glacier paper and the sorbet of the "Hello Lovely" (and don't you just love those art-deco scallops?) The two little sparkles in the centre of the flowers add just a weeny touch of bling but I could also have used the shimmer pen over the top for a bit of added sparkle.

I am normally a bit of a pain when it comes to journalling but as this will be in an album that chronicles all about meeting my new nieces I felt justified in leaving this page with just Ellira's name and birth date.








Thanks for joining us.  Don't forget to check up on the 15th for another Blog Hop showcasing January's feauture paper pack.
Now head on over to http://wp.me/p45lJH-Fz for more beautiful ideas.
Keep smiling,
