Guest Designer - Lime Tart

Hey Everyone,

This month I had the honour of being a guest designer over at

I was so excited as I am a huge fan of everything Lime Tart, including their kits, their copic club and all the other yummies Lime Tart has to offer.

So today I am going to share with you a layout I have done,
which was inspired by this months Sketch.
Here is my interpretation of the sketch:

I stayed true to the sketch, I always find it a challenge when it comes to using multiple photos, so this sketch was perfect!
I have used the A La Tarte Kit to make this layout.

I made some flowers using a Spellbinders die.
The blossom and butterflies are from the kit.

Got to get the sewing machine out and go wild on this one!!

Here is what the A La Tarte Kit looks like this month:

August '12 A la Tarte

This kit is overflowing with pretty papers!

So don't forget to head on over to Lime Tart and have a look around!

Thanks for stopping by.

The artwork is behind the photos.  Jackson painted lots of circles and squares.
