Strollin' along and Grandad

Had a lovely night as ever at my weekly SB class at Craft Den. We used the lovely Bo Bunny Sophie papers, cutting out the flower and leaf details from one page and creating a lovely MS punch think border across the page from another. I just love these colours together, they are so lush! I have used some photos of Emma when she was just walking, pushing her trike along the kitchen. Check out the purple walls and green woodwork we inherited in the kitchen, mad isn't it! Thankfully we have a new kitchen now in more subtle tones! I've pulled the green into the page to compliment the trike. Baby toys are always such bright colours aren't they? Great for the babies, but not great to try and match papers for a SB layout! We also painted a wooden heart with the new Eco paints in stock, which are really lovely pastel colours, painted a layer of quick crackle medium and then a layer of brown paint on top, which then crackles beautifully. I just love the effect. We edged them with inka gold and everyone else wrapped them in cord, but of course I had raced ahead without listening and had already stuck mine down! Oops. I've added punched flowers, butterflies and die cut swirls to finish it off and a sparkly title.

A couple of weeks ago we also did a lovely page with some more lovely new Bo Bunny papers, but I can't remember what they are called. They are also lush anyway! Here are Emma and Grandad in the garden after Easter Egg hunting, heading off into the house to count her considerable haul. I love the way the sun has back lit them. We cut out flowers from coordinating paper and card stock and I have added some corners cut with a Marrianne Design die. The usual bling has been added of course and a title from my stash.
