Time to pack

I've been too busy lately to do any scrapping, something most unusual for me.
This Friday l am going away with my kids and my mum to the USA.
I haven't been there for twenty something years and l can't wait.
l will be taking plenty of pictures to scrap when l get back home.

I thought l would give this sketch a go over at

Here is my version. I turned the sketch on the side.

I'm scrapping some of those hundreds of pictures taken from Tom's school formal, so expect to see layouts with them for some time.

On this double layout l made some sheer ribbon flowers just by gathering up a length of ribbon and sewing a button on to hold them together. Here are some close ups

I'm enjoying a day off work, hope you have a good day as well!
Thanks for looking.

November Already???

This is my take on the November Big Sketch competition over at I turned the sketch on its side

I have painted the bird cage and added glossy accents, crackled the butterfly and more glossy accents. I used Stickles on the chipboard swirl and heart, as well as some cutouts from Spellbinders through my Big Shot. I stamped out a couple of clocks and cut the doilies from some of the backing of Prima flowers.I added a few dabs of paint to the top to add that litle extra something to the background. Papers are from Basic Grey.

I have always loved bright colours and here is a layout of Alana about 8 years ago taken in my old scrap shop one afternoon after kindy.
Summer must be close, it's still hot this afternoon at 5pm!
