PanPastels #34 - All about stripes

This week at PanPastels UK the challenge theme is all about stripes, so make sure you show us your interpretation and remember you do NOT have to use PanPastels to be eligible to enter.

My sample today is rather different for me. Rather than make my own backing paper I have used DP from The Station paper pad by MME and added some PPs to it.

I have also used spellbinders labels 20 and stamps to create the focal piece and sentiment.

I hope you are having a great weekend, but before I go I thought I would share a few more holiday photos with you.

Me and Ella (aged 6) - photo taken by Maddison (aged 4)

Becca, Ella and Maddison

Ben (my son) and Bev and the girls

Pelicans everywhere waiting for the fishing boats to come in.

Couldn't resist the Coke truck!! At the outlet centre - well we had to shop sometime didn't we?

The outlet was very near the Mexican border. 

These two girls just love to play around - that's Maddie (my daughter) in the background.

More photos to come another day - hope you won't get bored with them lol.

Take care.

Hi dear Brenda, it's nice to be back in the blog world. You've been very busy in my absence. And a work of art is more beautiful than the other. I love your holiday photos. Your beautiful daughter looks just like you.
Have a nice Sunday my dear.

Your card is brimming with style Brenda and as for the photos, these are wonderful and I am so impressed at the little 4 year old's photography skills.

Love your stripy card... great colours give it a really elegant vintage look, and the Music focal point is absolutely fabulous. Maddison is clearly a photographer in the making - what a fab pic!
