I have been a happy scrapper

Hi all

after taking the photos of the mini book (see previous post) I thought I might try and be really organised and take photos of my recent layouts!

I am trying to get into a system - leaving them on my easel until they have been pictured and then filing them away in the appropriate album.

These are all of recent photos so I feel as though I am getting back on track!

I have discovered a fabulous blog; it is jam packed with wonderful ideas and beautiful layouts. The second of my layouts has been inspired by their recent sketch 6.30. Although a double layout I have used the left hand side only and condensed it somewhat as this was an 8 x 8 page. Only two more layouts to go and I will have completed the sixthth 8 x 8 book of Ruby's life to date (as well as the numerous 12 x 12 ones!) :0)

This is an 8 x 8 layout using October Afternoon 'Thrift Shop' and American Crafts 'City Park' and 'Dear Lizzy' stamps. The stamp at the top is Pink Paislee 'Daily Junque'

October Afternoon 'Thrift Shop' on this 8 x 8 layout. Punched flowers and the hand stamp is Pink Paislee 'Daily Junque' 

I'm not sure why but the photos on the layouts are coming out blurred, not that it matters as I am sure you are more interested in the layout itself!

This double layout uses Webster's Pages 'Trendsetter'

The layouts here use Cosmo Cricket's 'Joyride' (love, love these muted colours)
American Crafts 'City Park' papers, the felt flower is from them too. The little glass dome things are Prima pebbles - so sweet, one of them is a rain drop (falling out of the cloud!)
Love this! Cosmo Cricket 'Material Girl'. The photo does not do this lo justice. Felt flowers are K and Co.
Off to make toad in the hole now! Del has been really busy cleaning out the gutters, so then had to clean the conservatory and then as the pressure washer was out decided to clean the top deck - think he deserves a fave dinner :0)

Take care
