Life in the Slow Lane: ALL GOOD THINGS......

Sunday 21 October 2012


.....must come to an end and,sadly, SUSANNE has decided to wrap up her IN GOOD COMPANY party!

For the last year, she has invited us to make a layout or card using her chosen 'manufacturer of the month'....I have joined in most months (Jenni Bowlin caught me out!) and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of- some months- coming up with a LO using just one sheet of paper and some embellishments!

Susanne has likened it to deciding what party dress we'd like to wear...and allowed us to wear our own choice of  designer for the last party. Given that I like me a bit of 'MME', I have used a selection of their papers...and come up with this

My sister was determined to have a photograph of herself, me and our two brothers taken, as it is so seldom we are all  in the same place at the same time.

I used this sketch  from SCRAP FRIENDZY, designed by one of their ex -DT members KATHY


Thanks again for having hosted these 'parties' Susanne! 

Hope you've all had a good's been a bit rainy here, but not to the extent it was forecast.

Thanks for dropping by!
take care of you

  1. It looks super Alison. I love that flower. It was so great that all 4 of you were able to get together. Hope your Dad is feeling much better now and they are enjoying their new home.

  2. Lovely flower Alison and lovely photo too.

  3. It's definitely worth showcasing a sibling photo, especially when they're rare :) And you've done a grand job with this one! xx

  4. love the layout and photo Alison, something to cherish.

  5. That's a picture to be proud of - it's not often we are all in the same room at the same time so I know how much this one means :)

  6. Love that phot Alison! How cool to have a photo of you all together:) Love the LO too, nice design and colours are perfect! Hope your Dad is continuing to recover and that they are settling into their new home.

  7. I love the photo Alison, and I do the same. On the rare occasion that we are all together a 'family photo' is a must.

  8. Great layout Alison and I love the colours. Family shots are so precious.

  9. What a great photo & layout! I especially like the big flower embellishment.

    I only joined in Susanne's fun one month because I rarely pay attention to the manufacturer of my products, but it has been fun to see other's layouts.

  10. Glad you've not been washed away, and lovely to see you all together. Your papers are perfectly coordinated ...

  11. Awesome job Alison! Lovely colors and patterns. I will miss In Good Company. They were fun challenges!

  12. That is a beautiful layout with a lovely photo x

  13. Fab page Alison - glad there was a small silver lining to your time in the UK. Hope your dad is improving!

    I never did manage In Good Company - I tend not to scrap by manufacturer.


Thanks for leaving a comment....I love reading them all!
