Another bright scrapook page on the way. I don't seem to be able to do subtle at the mo but I guess that's what happens when all your pictures are of boys!
This is one half of what will be a 2 page layout from my sons 8th birthday party. We took him and a few friends to see Horrid Henry.
The background paper is another one from bazzill. I've used some polka dot material and red felt in the bottom corner to try and stop is being too stark.
I really can't throw anything away!
I cut out some hearts a while ago for a wedding gift tag. Too many 0 you can see 2 of the spares on the engagment card I posted a couple of days ago. I couldn't even bring myself to throw away the smal pieces of cream card that I'd cut them out of.
I used them to make this card which I'm could be used for valentines day or as a Wedding card I suppose.

So dragged myself out of bed and did this layout. Very simple as I was very tired, using seven gypsies(outback range) paper laid over some bazzill cardstock in a mustardy colour.
The picture of these 3 cousins was taken at Christmas dinner and makes me chuckle. The eldest looks knackered - he'd been up since 6ish and had gone to bed really late. The middle one is to the forefront. He was really enjoying himslef by then. The youngest on the right had refused to play ball all morning (to the point of refusing to open his presents) but he suddenly came alive at dinnertime. Look at that grin!
Whilst the cats away..........
Tom's off on holiday and has left me behind so I made the most of it and booked myself into a crop at the Craft Den.
It's the fist time I've been to a crop of any kind so I was a little nervous but Lynne and the girls made me feel very welcome and I learned lots of new skills and came away brimming with ideas and lusting after several items in Lynne's lovely shop.
We did 3 layouts on the day. I'm very pleased with all of them - they're way out of my league!
The first was browns and pinks - very girly but I loved it!
The second is so elegant. I used one of my fave pics of my grandparents and Mum.
The final one was very bright! With flowers and ribbons. I was convinced that one wasn't for me but I think it worked well in the end. Not too girly for a picture of my boy after all
Needless to say I've already booked in for the next one. Can't wait.......
