Ok so here's what I have to share;
- some layouts; finally!!!
- the story of our family circle journal craft club!!!
So layouts first.....
This is one I've wanted to do for ages; 2 very special people no longer with us & missed every single day...., this layout took me days & days!!!
Couple of close ups:
a third layout....
I'm really pleased with this one.... it took ages!!! I used Tim Holtz masks, lots of mists, made the cogs from cardboard (using the masks as a template); I inked them with Rangers distress inks... I did try to use UTEE but think my embossing pad must be a bit dry as when I heated the UTEE with my heat gun it blew all over the kitchen worktop & melted there instead of on the cogs!!!
I think I will be using these papers a lot...Bobunny timepiece.... LUSH!!!!!
couple more closeups:
Finally we started a family circle journal yesterday Mads, Tigs, Mum, my gorgeous niece Alisha & I.... but its more than a CJ... its a family saturday crop... a time for the girls to spend time together... a time for me to craft with mum (a massive rarity!!!) and a time for Alisha to have some girly time away from her two stinky (just kidding boys :) I love you both!!! ) brothers !!!
We made our covers & the girls did their front pages..... I really did have the best time & hope the girls did too! Here's our efforts...
It was Alisha's first attempt at scrapping & I think she loved it!!! Bring on more family crafting!!!
There you have it.... told you this was a long one....
Hope you've had a fab weekend
