And an orange bow for her too - mmmmmm pink and orange - love that colour combo :)

Jubilee Day

Another scrapbook page, I've been on a bit of a roll with them and makes a nice change swapping between cards and scrapbooking and it means I'm finally getting some boxes of photos sorted. So anyway this will just be a quick post cos I think my hair dye has only got another 10 mins to go and I need to suss out what is wrong with Blogger that it won't let me do my design team comments :S fingers crossed can get it working again.

So anyway this is me last July at the fair after the Jubilee in Buckley by Ian's (as you can see from the umbrellas in the background it was a lovely typical July Summer's Day). I'm really pleased with the layout cos it's the first I've done in a long while with no plan at all I just decided on things a bit at a time and stuck it down before moving on to the next bit. Only thing I wish I did was stick the bunting a bit higher up but hey-ho lol. Atleast there's lots of sparkle :)

And a close up of the flowers, love the pink background showing through - reminds me of a field full of flowers

Some of the fab felt from Kerry - sooooooo easy to cut even by hand :)

And of course it wouldn't be a proper scrapbook page without a bit of sparkle

Supplies: Letter Stickers by Studio Calico, Rolled Flower Die by Die-namics, Card by Papermania, 'Hey Birdie!' Papers by Kaisercraft, Double Dot Ribbon by Bo Bunny, Flowers by Prima & Petaloo, Felt by Ladybug Crafts Ink, Epoxy Dot by Ladybug Crafts Ink
Extras: Gems, Black Ink Pad, Black Paint Marker

Phew think that's everything lol.

I would like to enter this layout in the following challenge...

Scrapbook Sisters Challenge 3 - Flags and Banners

Right off to see if the dye has done it's job - fingers crossed cos I'm off to a wedding down in Norwich on Friday lol XOX

Alphabet Challenge Blog DT - C for CAS

That time of the week again, time for another challenge over at Alphabet Challenge Blog - this week is C for CAS (Clean and Simple fortunately this is a style I use quite a lot so it wasn't quite as scary as some of the other challenges have been lol. But it's good to try new things too, and it's been good for giving me a kick start back into scrapbooking.

So anyway here is my Clean and Simple layout, it is based on the card that is on the right side bar. I had used some of the pictures of last year's Valentine's Flowers for the card and loved the layout so much I decided to try it for a full scrapbook page - keeping with the theme I used the photos of this year's Valentine's Flowers :) I have to say I love the way it's turned out. Shows the flowers off so much better than the original uncut-down photos.

I added some wording to the heart as a bit of journalling

Supplies: Card, Sugar-Coated Card & Rub-ons by Doodlebug, Purple Ink Pad

Right day off for me now...

PS don't forget to head on over to the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the design team have been up to
