I’m very excited to have Manda on board for March! Here is her first LO with the colourful kit “All Mashed Up”:

Totem Poles

 Thank you to Crazy Mondays for asking me to be a guest this month. I was so excited when I received this kit because of the bold colours which I love.
I had a lot of fun making this layout. I decided to cut up the triangles on the Dear Lizzy paper and add them as a kind of embellishment by sticking them on individually and then hand stitching around them with embroidery floss from my stash in colours that coordinated with the other papers on the page. I really love how it turned out. To make my paper go further I cut the centre out before layering the cardstock so I could use it to cut up the triangles and also to use the b-side to mount the photos. I still have some left over for another project!
