Stuck?! Sketches/ UKS Weekly Challenge May week 1

This weeks sketch from Stuck?! sketches and this weeks UKS challenge is to use photos from a holiday (Christmas/Easter/Bank Holiday), minimum of 3 photos and kraft cardstock.
 I've used some photos from December 2013 when Sam's carer Harriet took him into the city to see the Coca-cola truck (we all went back in the evening...I loved it!).  I love the photo of Sam and Harriet as her clearly adores her!
 I have used 'Holiday' photos, three of them and there is Kraft cardstock matting the photos and PP.    I have used an old MCS kit form December featuring Carte Bella papers.
 Only a splatterihng of bling as I felt the page really didn't require anymore.  I have used pearls from my stash and the red is from Stampin Up.

 The alphas are American Crafts and Carte Bella
Thanks for looking and please pop over to the Stuck?! blog, give the sketch a go and see the fab DT's work, I love how everyone has their own interpretation of the sketch.

BtCR - April

I found this card on Pinterest as a Birthday card which I made and then adapted it and made a Christmas card. My faithful MS punch has been used and I have purchased a new one as the old one gave up the ghost - I'm always punching out snowflakes!
 I have gone white and silver grey with a splash of blue and a little bit of bling!

 Another seven cards to my collection and now my tally is up to 37!
Please pop over to Sue's blog and start making those Christmas cards now!!
