Pockets with Pizzazz

Halloooooo this week !!
I luckily had the opportunity to use some of the new pinkpaislee Hello Sunshine collection! I recieved the 3x4" cards, the striped alphabet and the chipboard sticker set, I sooooooooooooo love these cards, they're rainbow coloured and mention the rain & sunshine often - ideal for the UK weather! Not wanting to sound greedy/ungrateful or anything, but I would have loved the stamps and the ephemera that go with this set too ! It was supposed to be released at the end of March, so should be in the UK shops sometime soon I'm hoping.
We had another busy week, a part DIY scrapbooking weekend away Nr Swindon, with lots of people turning up with Pocket Pages, which was very inspiring and a brilliant laugh ! Some OH, SO, Cold, photos of -27degrees from one of my boys in Canada - I nicked them off Facebook, anybody else do that with their elusive offspring? Some clothes tags, I love to include bits and pieces that are not from the kits....and I used a great big cup cake found here: http://gb.trapletshop.com/craft-wooden-shapes that I decorated with the chalk pens and stamped on.

This week I went slightly overboard on photos - what do you do when you take too many !!!! I decided to scrap some traditionally, but I also wanted to include some of them in the Pocket Pages album....luckily I had just managed to get hold of some of the Becky Higgins Project life, Design F inserts. I carefully chose some more photos....I didn't want too many extra as they were of the same event, but I'd had my 'Big Camera' with me, and that always seems to take really good photos, that I need to include. 
There are quite a few different inserts from different companies that are not complete 12x12 size, you could use them as inserts or make a complete album from them - whatever suits your lifestyle.....

A bit more of the pinkpaislee in use -  its so summery !
