Butterfly Crafts June Challenge

The Butterfly Crafts June Challenge is now up on the blog here...
Have a look to check out the rest of the DT's work...this month's challenge is a sketch.

Regular readers may know that I do an album per year of day to day celebrations, events and days out etc documenting the year. Until this year I had done a layout for every month of the year with a few little pictures and journalling. Well I was getting a bit bored of that so for this year I decided to do a Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter Layout instead.
So I used this month's sketch challenge to create my first 'Spring' layout!

October Afternoon - 5 and Dime Papers
October Afternoon - 5 and Dime sticker sheet
American Crafts - Thickers
Brown Ink pad
3-D foam pads

This Week's...

Twisted Sketches sketch is up on the blog and here is my layout....

This week's twist was 'shine' I chose to make a sunshine...

This picture was taken on holiday in Spain this year and I have used Echo Park papers..

Yesterday was my birthday! I had a lovely day...I worked in the morning and had the whole nursery come in to my room to sing happy birthday, followed by a card, prezzie and a 'new look' (UK Clothes shop) bag shaped cake...amazing! I then went to a local spa for the afternoon with Lee which was lovely to chill out just us two! I had dinner in the evening with family and more cake!! Pictures appearing on layouts soon I'm sure!

Thanks for looking!

Time Flys..

...when your having fun..where have the last 2 weeks gone? In the last two weeks I have been on a hen weekend and scrapbooking weekend, worked, scrapbooked and been on a few days out with the family! Anyway speaking of scrapbooking weekends...

Last weekend I went away Friday to Sunday scrapping, which was lovely, I do love going away to scrapbook you can get so much done...I think I did 10 pages this time.

I also designed a kit layout again, this time using Echo Park it is...

...and some close ups...

On this layout I used some glimmer misting, a little bit of stitching, and I created 3 rectangles using mostly the journalling cards..I then used them for the title, journalling and embellishments. I used lots of the stickers as well, with lots of 3d foam pads. The photo size that I used was 3x2.

Thanks for looking!
