Last of the Dukes Farm layouts (finally!!)

Here are the last two layouts I made at Dukes Farm wwwaaaayyyy back in March! After this I'll finally be up to date yay! 

While we were away the For the love of pretty paper Facebook group posted their monthly challenges. One challenge was to use labels, twine or arrows on a layout. I looked through the stash I took with me and managed to use all three on my page. 
This photo I snapped of me and my mum on the train when I took her down to London last year. I used papers from Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, Crate Paper and Teresa Collins. Most of the embellishments are from Simple Stories apart from the word stickers which are Crate Paper.  

My final layout is for a sketch challenge Sue on my Sketchy Scrappers group set over on her blog. I was too late to enter with everything that was going on but never mind. 
I scrapped a nice summery layout, just what we need to cheer us up when the weather is crazy and going backwards at the moment. 
Notice that the wafer on Ian's ice cream is broken. This is because he started eating it before I told him off as I wanted to Instagram our ice creams first! I used papers from Amy Tangerine, Cosmo Cricket and Simple Stories. I used some die cuts from Dear Lizzy Fine & Dandy as this was the perfect (and probably only) layout where they fitted the theme. 
So I'm finally up to date with sharing my layouts! Hopefully I'll have something new to share with you soon x

I'm back!!!!

Sorry for the huge gap between posts, I hope I've not kept people on tenter hooks waiting to see ore layouts from my weekend away to Dukes Farm which was AGES ago now! 

The reason for my hiatus? I've transferred my job and relocated up north to Bradford. Everything happened a bit quick and then when we got here it was two weeks until our wifi went live! But we're settled now and adjusting to our new life, so far so good I'm pleased to say. 

So, back to the layouts. These are the last of the ones I scrapped for Shimelle's online crop, hopefully I can remember what the challenges were!

This layout is for the circles challenge. I punched some circles out in different sizes and went from there.

In case you can't tell the photos are from the Harry Potter studio! To be honest I'm not sure what I was thinking with the colours but it's done now!

I think this layout was for a scrap something old or from the past. I decided to scrap a photo of my grandparents old post office which I've had printed for ages but done nothing with

This was the last layout I scrapped that weekend. This was for a colour and travel challenge. We needed to use Kraft, red, yellow and blue. I decided to scrap a photo of Barmouth harbour taken last year when we went camping. 

I'll be back soon with the last of the Dukes Farm layouts, I promise I'm not planning to move in the meantime so it won't be so long this time!
