Life in the Slow Lane: A couple of Layouts

Saturday 14 May 2011

A couple of Layouts

I managed to get a bit of scrapbooking done this week...the weather was much more settled and mum, dad and DD were quite happy to lie around the pool reading (apart from the ice-cream day of course....see previous post).

 There were a few NSD Challenges that I fancied trying, and though I haven't managed them all, here's a couple I completed.

 This first one was for a Challenge over at Scrapbook Challenges and I ended up using this  sketch by Tracy, over at ScrapFriendzy.


I rotated it clockwise, to work with my photograph.

Apart from the orange paper (and I can't remember what collection it's from!),everything else was from my stash..the flowers are all Prima.

The other LO I completed was also for Scrapbook Challenges , but I also used it for a 'mixed alpha title' Challenge over at ScrapFriendzy.

Again, the papers were all from my stash, and I had been loaned a 'Cuttlebug' to try so embossed and debossed my butterflies. The border along the bottom is a ' Paper Ribbon Doily' by BASIC GREY.

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  1. They have worked really well - I rarely know where my stash has come from and just use what works. Off to watch the Eurovision with the hubby - he is not a happy bunny :0)

  2. Lovely LO's, and I'm so jealous that you have those gorgeous flowers growing near you! Last time I saw them I was in Madeira, and I took lots of photos!
