Leah's album: last two layouts!

I'm feeling very happy and chuffed with myself this weekend as I've finished Leah's album woohoo!! The first layout was completed for Sketch & Scrap. This months sketch was chosen by the lovely Lesley
I loved this sketch once I'd looked at it a few times, and have to admit I struggled to do it justice on an 8x8 layout so I'll definetly save it for a 12x12. This was my layout...
The photo is of my late grandad Grey who before he retired had a haulage firm with his friend. I moved the circles around on the sketch and used different punches and textures to make each one stand out. The idea for the bakers twine circle came from Hannah Young on her blog, the twine and papers also came in one of her grab boxes.

This last layout was inspired from a layout in the last edition of Scrapbook Magazine by Louise Collins.
The photo is of Leah with her family, my cousin Emma (mummy), her partner John (daddy), and her brother Ben who isnt always crying honest! The paper hearts and gem hearts have been in my stash for ages, gifts brought my family members which I never thought I would use I have to admit! The paper heart was coloured with stickles for extra sparkle.
