Happy Sunday!

Hey there, good to see you again!  It’s raining quite heavy here today, so I think it’s going to be a day at home pottering and scrapbooking I think.

Last weekend I went to the Crop in the Country 12 x 12 x 12 weekend ran by Rachel Chevis and Sarah Ingram.  Our kits contained 27 layouts to complete, so I thought I would show you some of what I’ve completed so far!













Have a great Sunday!

Hear me roar (normally at 5am) Layout

Hey there, thanks for stopping by.  This layout is my first layout using my Quirky Kit.  I love the colours in this kit, and the stickers were perfect for this photo of Herbie.



This was another 30 days of June layout, and I've used my We R Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board to make the cut out frames.  I also had to use the leopard sticker on this layout... well I had to really!

I hand cut the triangle papers at the top of the layout, and I love the effect it gives.

Moments Captured Layout

Hey there, thanks for stopping by!  Cocoa Vanilla Studio Boy's Rule collection, isn't just for boys.  I've used it for this photo of Craig and Emily.



The photo colours were blue and green because of the grass and water, and this collection went perfectly.  The cloud perspextives were a must have on this layout.

Love This Layout

Hey there, good to see you again.  This photo has to be one of my favourites.  We'd gone to a DIY shop to pick up some bits and pieces, and bought this chair.  Emily insisted on carrying the chair on her head, and she even put her ponytail through the hole in the bottom of the chair.



Because the photo is such fun, I wanted to keep the layout fun.  I used Simple Stories Emoji Love collection, which is all bright colours and very modern.  All the kiddies Emily's age know what Emoji's are.  This layout came together very quickly, and I have to say, I love how it turned out.

This won't be the last crazy thing my daughter does, so watch this space.

One Cool Kid Layout

Hey there, good to see you again.  Back in June, my oldest Nephew, Nigel, and Niece, Fleur, had my little Great Nephew, Nathan.  We were so thrilled when we heard that Nathan had arrived safely, and these photo's are of Nathan at a few days old.

Again, I've used the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Boy's Rule to complete this layout, and it formed another layout for my 30 days of June layout.



The sketch was very simple for this day of June, so I decided to use patterned paper accented by black to make the simplicity stand out.  I have to say that the Boy's Rule collection is one of my favourites.

I added some stitching to my layout as well, and some embellishments.  I kept it all very simple and kept the focus on the photo's.  Not a usual baby layout!

Super Girl Layout

Hey there, thanks for stopping by.  I'm in love with the Doodlebug Design Hello Collection, and I've used it again on this layout.  This is another layout from the 30 days of June challenge.

The colours in this layout go perfectly with Emily's outfit, and she truly is a Super Girl.  Whenever we go to Brimham Rocks, Emily insists on climbing all day.



The sketch for this layout took me out of my comfort zone.  I normally put everything square on my layouts, so to put things at an angle was a bit strange.  This is what I love about scrapbooking, people and challenges can make you scrap differently to how you would usually scrap!

Life is good when you have books layout

Thanks for stopping by, it's good to see you again!  This layout is another layout for the 30 days of June challenge.

For the first time in ages, I'd bought some second hand books at a National Trust house we visited.  I don't have an awful lot of time to read, but I do love my books!



When I was completing my layout, I realised that the Bramble Fox Life is Good Perspextive was perfect for this layout.  I kept my layout fairly simple, just adding some stars onto my Kraft background.  Life is good when you have books, I just have to remember to read!
