A baby Page...

The My Minds Eye, Lost and Found collections are so gorgeous, I've now used them for 3 layouts all of babies, because they go so well!

On this layout I used up some scraps by cutting different sized circles out, rather than rectangular shape/s that I would usually use. I decorated some of the circles, with the title, punched out butterfly's and heart. I also used some Prima flowers and a couple of pins to embellish the blank space on the page.

I think the finished layout looks better in real life rather than online, but this is also true for the papers themselves..they are so pretty.

I'm looking forward to going off to a crop day on Saturday and I'm really excited that the new CHA releases have started to come into the shops..will have to start saving some pounds!

Have a great weekend, see you next week!

Having Fun...

Having my work's Christmas party 2010..
I was really stuck on which papers to use for this layout, I didn't really buy many Xmas papers this year and after using the ones I had and being fed up with Christmas things in the end I went for the Circa 1934 line..

I kept the embelishments simple, just using some Prima flowers.

Thanks for looking, and don't forget to take a look at the Twisted Sketches blog tomorrow for Team B's week!
See you soon..Anna x

.A Couple of Kit Layouts...

Morning Everyone..
Every month I along with my little bunch of scrapbooking buddies, go along to the Papermaze crop day (in Suffolk, UK). Each month they create an optional kit that you can buy, and we usually do! Anyway..most of the time I tend to change the layout to adjust to my own style..this was very much the case for this layout...

..I've been working on and off with this layout for weeks, and could never finish it! But the other day it all came together and now I'm happy with it..
The next layout is from the most recent crop day (Jan) which I just copied! I had the right photos for it so it was lovely to stick to the original layout for a change..the layout was created by the lovely Lou...

A few more layouts to show and I'm up to date..woohoo!!

You can also now see one of my layouts over on the Twisted sketches blog...this week's theme was 'comfort' can see mine and all of team A's interpretations of the sketch and twist here!

Quick and Simple..

A quick and simple layout..using the October Afternoon Modern Homemaker line...

..using a picture from new year...

I partly lifted this layout from a layout by Wendy quite a while ago, which I now can't find the link to..sorry..

..sometimes it's nice to do something a little different, and I really enjoyed making it and it fitted in with the time I had free really well..

Thanks for looking!

Catching Up...

Where have the last two weeks gone? Well, I've been busy catching up with lots of various scrapping projects. I have been mainly working on my 2010 yearbook which is not far off now. It's the calendar pages that really get me behind, until a couple of weeks ago I hadn't done one since June last year! I will be catching you up with all of those layouts over the next week.
I have also been working on my first couple of Twisted Sketches Design Team layouts. They will appear over on their blog next week and then two weeks later watch out for those!
Today I'm going to show you my entry for the DT Call, which got me a place on the team! :D You can see all of the new Design Team's entry layouts here, including mine...however since I sent my entry in I have changed my picture and added some journalling..
I entered the call at the very last miniute and only completed the page on the day of the closing date, so I didn't really know what I was going to use the layout for at that point, so I quickly found an appropriate photo to use! Lol..but anyway since then I have chosen to use a picture of Jack at Colchester Zoo a few weeks ago and added some journalling to the journalling card...

close ups...

...and journalling...

Thanks for looking! Check back soon, got lots more to share!
