Take Time to Smell the Flowers...

I created this page last week for the Papermaze blog to show how papers from different manufacturers can be easily combined. On this page there is My Mind's Eye, Basic Grey, Bo Bunny and a Making Memories notesheet for good measure. I love this photo - Ed took it in the walled garden at Osbourne House and the weather was just perfect - it brings back very happy memories of a chilled out day in the sun.

I love these American Crafts fabric thickers - think I may have to treat myelf to some more of these, they bring great texture to the page. I will have to see what other colours they do.

I've been scrapping again this week too, again for the Papermaze blog though it will end up on here eventually. Work has finally quietened down a bit and I feel like I can safely devote some evenings to my hobby rather than marking for a change! I will however be rather busy over the next few weekends - I've got Race for Life and a Take That concert at Wembley to look forward to, but at least it means more photo ops...

Judgemental Who!

This layout brings back very funny memories - the game of Guess Who, updated for a cynical and slightly drunken modern audience. Guess Who is all about judging on appearances, I guess Judgemental Who takes that a step further...

Again, my love of orange shines through - I don't seem to be able to scrap a layout without orange recently!

And just to use up more orange paper, here is a quick layout I made with a snap from Portugal last year - me and Ed taking a break after a day trip into the mountains. I just love these Basic Grey Offbeat chipboard pieces - the pack seems to go on forever which is great value for money with the way things are these days.

Hoping to get more layouts done in the next few days - got my wireless printer to work today and it prints out gorgeous photos which have really inspired me to start up again. Sometimes I go through phases of inactivity with scrapping, but I always come back in the end, and since it was the last GCSE History exam today I feel a little bit of the pressure has lifted - thank goodness! Here's hoping they all do fantastically, bless em.
