Make a Wish

I had a break from birthday cards last night and did some scrapping yay! I managed to do another layout for Leah's album which means only 4 more to go, double yay! This photo is of Leah's mummy and Nanny when Emma was just a baby
The inspiration for this layout came from a sketch on the My Creative Sketches blog. Papers used are all My Minds Eye, mainly from Quite Contrary with a couple from Bloom & Grow. I wasnt sure on the title for this but decided less is probably more and cut a sentiment from a sheet of paper.

Birthday Cards

I made some more birthday cards over the weekend, one for my mum and one for a friends son. This is the card I made for mum
I used the Papermania Tulip range which is so cute, although the colours are so soft they dont photograph very well lol! The next card is for a friends sons second birthday and I have to say I'm rather chuffed with it!
I'd seen a card on Pinterest with kites on it and thought it would be cute for a little boy. I raised the kites on foam tape so the ribbon tails looked as though they were flying. I used My Little Shoebox paper for the sky, kites are Echo Park papers, and I finished over with a good old American Crafts Thicker.

Cousins: Sketch & Scrap

Its the first of the month which means its time to unveil our layouts for Sketch & Scrap. This months sketch was chosen by Shirley
Yet again I did another layout for Leah's album, I'm slowly getting through the photos yay!
The photo was taken in 1985 of my Nanny Grey with her grandchildren at the time (2 more arrived later lol). I'm sat at the back next to my cousin Simon. In the front is my Nan holding my brother Vincent and Leah's mummy Emma. I used the free papers from Scrapbook Magazine which were gorgeous this time. The alphas are Papermania stickers coloured with Pro Markers.
