New layouts

So I finally got down to some scrapping over the weekend! I did some crafting with Tiegan which is always fun as she's actually pretty good when she accepts that everythign doesn't have to be perfect!

This first layout is a photo that I've wanted to scrap for ages, and I used papers that I've been holding onto for ages, not wanting to cut into them for some reason!! The papers are Websters and I've also used a Prima mask, a prima vine, and of course the obligatory mists & distress ink; The photograph is of my brother and nephew with my new baby neice when she was just a day old. The look of wonder in Daniel's little face is just lovely.

The next is a layout using an old kit from Sarah's Cards - I thought I would try a different style, with cleaner lines & less inking & distressing. I really dont like how it turned out!!! I guess its a lesson learnt, but its  another layout for the album & another memory captured!

See? Not one of my best at all!!! But its good to be scrapping again, I still havent solved the storage issue or whether to scrap upstairs or downstairs so I'm kind of doing both!!

Thanks for popping by xxx

51 sleeps... really?

Is it really only 51 sleeps till Christmas? Where on earth has this year gone?!!

I'm feeling very envious of all the ladies off on the Sarah's Cards retreat this weekend.... I soooo enjoyed myself in March, but I promised the girls a firework party this weekend... ho hum! Still, I consoled myself by ordering some lovely stash online, cant wait till my pizza boxes arrive!

I ve been finding lots of craftign time lately, and seem to have several projects on the go, so very little completed as yet; a holiday mini-book, a christmas wreath, some paper shoes, 3 circle journals, a layout that is taking forever with tons of fussy cutting, but I'm loving it... so lots to share soon.

A few bits I can share now; the photographs are really bad for some reason?

The first is an old layout I did for SBM of Maddy in the snow last year; love these prima blooms, yummy!

This one is another old LO for SBM, I was provided with these papers, and decided to amke a collage of photographs of a holiday in Kefalonia;

And finally a birthday card I made for Mum using an older kit from Sarah's Cards, as you can tell, I'm really not a cardmaker!!!

Well thats it for me, I'm off to buy fireworks and yummy food for tomorrow night and a well deserved bottle of red, it is the end of the week afterall! happy bonfire night all xxx
