Big photos

Aother layout using a big photo and fun serif. This was the first liberation day celebration I've ever been to and I was surprised how close to the action you could get.

Need to go to quilting this morning and get a quilt ready for quilting.

Another layout from the crop

Which contains no journalling so actually finished at the crop. these are pictures of Fiona's 7th birthday.

Exactly a month after Fiona's birthday is Elizabeth's birthday. There'll be a definite cupcake theme to her birthday layout as the invites and party ware which we bought in England are as cute as cupcakes. I've seen some china with cupcakes on them at M&S so I might have to buy some.

Some journalling to do at the crop this evening and two more Paris layouts. If I finish the journalling that would be an achievement.

Grid lock

The access road to the harbour was gridlocked this morning with parents from at least 6 schools dropping off children for the Condor sailing to France. This chaos will probably be repeated on Friday too.

Another layout using Creative Imagination scalloped paper and Lorraine's scalloped circle punches. Funs serif with chipboard again!! I organised my Paris photos to scrap them at the crop on Saturday but worked slower than I'd hoped so I will get them out today and make a start on Versailles.

Glorious day

Both yesterday and today. I completely finished two layouts at the crop yesterday and here is the first one. Inspired by a layout by Shimelle, I'm loving those scalloped punches with the journalling stamp or circle stamp. Thanks Lorraine for loaning them to me.

This photo was from my Snapfish order. I liked the matt finish and the photos looked good blown up.

A minor heart in mouth moment at the crop when my troll beads hit the floor, but I spent an hour this morning listing my purchases and none were missing. It was lovely looking at each individual bead again.

Matthew is off to France with the school tomorrow. His suitcase and rucksack are packed. It'll be an early start with a 6.45am drop at the harbour. Matthew has two disposable cameras to use. He kindly asked what I'd like him to bring back from France and my reply of course was loads of good photos. I will no doubt embarass him by taking photos as he departs, but what's new!!

I have been sewing up a storm over the last week, and have finished a quilt top which is now ready for quilting, once I have found a backing :( Inspired by this online workshop by Anita and using a Scrapping Angels kit with the addition of the Heidi Swapp days of the week journalling spots and the date stamp and scalloped paper.

I uploaded some digital photos to Snapfish last night. I chose matt photos for a change and i hope that they arrive before Saturday for the crop as I plan to do them all. They include paris and Versailles, Fiona's birthday and the Thai Shack. I have ordered a couple of enlargements which will be interesting to try instead of my regular 6 by 4s or smaller.

See you on Saturday, 9 June at 10am.
