Two to go!!!

Last night I finally finished a layout I started on Monday! To be fair the only thing which needed doing was embellishing and adding the title, but every time I wanted to sit down and do this something else came up! But anyway its done know lol! This layout is another page for Leah's album which means only two more to go yay!
The photo is of my nanny Grey who we sadly last at the beginning of the year after fighting dementia for some time. Whilst sorting through old issues of Scrapbook Magazine last week I saw a layout which had a large heart filled with smaller punched hearts. It looked really pretty so I decided to have a go for this layout. The hearts were cut using the new nesting hearts die from X-Cut and are a great way of using up scraps as well as looking fab!

Scorching Sketch & Scrap

Hi all hope you are all enjoying the Indian Summer we are having. Its lovely, even though its warm I'm finding it more bearable than the summer prob cos the sun isnt so high up? Anyway its time to share another Sketch & Scrap layout which has been the only bit of scrapping I have done this month :-( This months sketch was chosen by the fabulous but as mad as me Lisa.
This sketch is lovely and gave me a chance to do another page for Leah's album (only 3 more to go now woohoo!) I turned the sketch on its side so I could use a portrait photo and came up with this...
The photo is of Leah with her mummy & Daddy when she was a baby. I used Glitz papers from a recent grab box I purchased from Handmade Hannah. The embellishments were also from an embellishment kit from Hannah. I had planned on using black bling swirls under the photo but my swirls didnt swirl in the way I wanted them to so that was scrapped lol!
