A few things to share...

...Oh my God, work is tiring! I haven't been able to go to sleep at a reasonable hour, as I've still been in holiday mode, but that has made getting out of bed in the morning even harder. However, its not been too bad teaching again, and at least two days then a weekend is a good way to ease into it.

I've got a few pages to share, all of which were created for the Papermaze blog. First up, we have my contribution to the current competition over on the blog, to using a felt circle picture as inspiration for your own creation. Here was my interpretation, a kind of 'garden picture', and yes, there is no big title - I'm not sure if I like it or not, but its good to make a change. The stitching took me forever though! I used a poem I found on the internet to form the journalling, felt for the circles and BG Mellow paper as well as scanned in book paper which I used to create the clouds.

Next up, we have two pages created using the new Scenic Route Providence range. For more inspiration using the other new Scenic Route range, you should check out Scrap Paper Scissors - Wendy and Angie have made some awesome layouts using the Grafton range.
These two layouts were created in a bit of a hurry, but I actually really like them - sometimes simple can be beautiful, and in particular I love the Family Portrait layout because of the photo, which I didn't want to obscure behind a whole load of embellishments. Its a rare photo of all of my mum's side of the family (except my uncle, who actually took the picture) back in 1985. I'm so glad I scrapped this now so that I can remember us all together.

This layout has such fab photos of my sister pulling a very cheeky face - it makes me laugh whenever I look at it!


  1. Very beautiful pages. The first one is my favourite. The flowers are so cute.
    Love, Isolde

  2. Lovely pages Clo - the stitching on the first one works really well. xx

  3. Gorgeous pages as always. I too have been playing with BG Mellow, so I am digging that layout!
    Have we got a completed bathroom yet?
