The papers were all scraps, mainly Carta Bella with one piece from Crate Paper. For my title I used two different glitter Thickers. For embellishments I used some cork pieces I recently found hidden and a couple of gold brads, a much neglected embellishment! And in an attempt to be thrifty I used some pink ribbon which came wrapped around one of my birthday presents.

It's easy to keep in touch with family and friends now with Facebook, etc but actually meeting up is another issue. If one person can make it, then someone else can't, then if you rearrange everyone else can make it but you're away and before you know it its Christmas and another year has passed! That's how it is in my family. My mum has two brothers, one who lives in nearby Crowland who she sees every now and then, and one who lives in Stamford but somehow we hardly ever see! It's come as a joke now that they really see each other at weddings or funerals! That's why last year at Boo's Christening, which both my uncles attended, we made sure we got a pic!

I recently discovered the challenge blog Scrap Our Stash. As I've recently started another 30 layout challenge, where I can't buy any stash until I've completed 30 layouts, I thought this would be a great way of using up my stash. This months challenge is to make a layout using elements to spell out the word BRADS. This is the layout I made
A: Amy Tangerine paper, Alphas from American Crafts
D: Dog in the photo, who is called...
S: Skip, sprinkles of mist

Last week saw the start of Rinda's summer scavenger hunt she sets every summer. Every summer I say I'm going to take part and fail miserably but I thought I'd give it another go. I'm happy to say so far so good and I managed to cross three items from the list.
First of all was number 1, a bouquet of flowers. I snapped these lovely flowers from my mums garden which she had on her kitchen table. I admit I did take the mick out of her for having them in a Christmas jug!

How are we halfway through the year??? It's scary how time flies! At least now, well as I write this post that is, summer is finally here, the sun is shining, it's strawberry season and it's my birthday month! And it's also time for a new Challenge YOUrselfchallenge. This month is a nice and easy challenge where anything goes so long as YOU are in the photo! As it's an anything goes challenge I chose I random silly photo of me hugging Fluffy from Despicable Me!
I'll let you into a secret: I took this photo just so i could the gorgeous unicorn paper and embellishment from Pink Paislee's Bella Rouge collection! The papers are from that collection apart from the black & white paper on the left which is from Studio Calico.
