Latest layouts

Hi everyone, thanks for your lovely comments about my thank you book for nursery, I can't believe it myself that this is her last week. Emma by contrast is delirous now she has realised what I am saying about it being her last week. I have told the nursery staff not to take it personally!!
I'm off down to my head office tomorrow, back Weds, which I could do without, but it always makes the week go much faster! My AG DT piece is all ready, I have been a good girl this week and got myself organised!

Here are my last two layouts, one from Craft Den class last week and another I did at home. BTW, is anyone having the same problem as I am having, where blogger is putting great big gaps between may paragraphs? It takes me ages to delete them all out and even then sometimes it puts them back in when I have posted! So annoying, grr.

Emma and Granny down in Norwich a few Christmases ago. I thought the photo was so sweet with these Bo Bunny papers. I have added a Tim tattered die cut flower, which is alternative layers of pale blue fabric and blue card, edged with versa magic Pumpkin Spice ink. I have kept the detail simple with some bling, cherry blossom flowers and ribbon. The butterfly punch is Martha Stewart and everything from Craft Den, except the cherry blossoms from stash.

The next one is a continuing attempt to use up old stash! I've had these K&Co papers forever and never found the right photo. Although I love them, the papers are almost too bright to do anything with, but I thought these piccies looked well. I have hidden a journal tag behind the scalloped just detailing what she is doing and when the photos were taken. I am being shamed into putting more journaling in my layouts by Lynne! She's right of course, Emma will want to know about the photos when she is older and see my handwriting when I have left her all these scrapbooks one day!! The glitter flower is Prima, an impulse buy from QVC and this is the first thing I have found that they go on so far! I have chopped up some lace border for leaves and added some bling branches. The dragonfly I have made out of metal using a Woodware stamp and embossing tools. I coloured it with copics, which didn't work so well, but it's for my album so who cares!

Remember, the next Anything Goes Challenge is launched tomorrow. Click here to join in with us! Don't forget its our last week of the DT member call as well!
