'Scuse The Cobwebs . . .

My best laid plans to do some scrapping over the Christmas/New Year break were pure fantasy!  Hope you had a wonderful Christmas break and a happy start to 2012!

I have managed to squeeze in some scrappy time in the past few days which is the 1st time in a month!

The 1st layout is for our Sketch Competition over at HBS.  The sketch was created by Michelle Fowler.
I have used Webster's All About Me papers and embellies, plus I have done some stitching using my Burst Sew Easy head and the gem flourish is one from Zva.
I spotted a sketch by Wendy Smith earlier in the month and I was really inspired by it so I have based the below on her sketch - thanks for the inspiration Wendy!  I have used Kaiser Sweet Nothings papers from the paper pad and a special treat of lots of Prima blooms and the Shabby Chic Resin Bridge.  The pic is of one of my 'other' children - Bonnie - our littlest Jack Russell.  She loves to play amongst the plants in the garden and on this day she was pouncing around my petunias so I snapped the moment.  The journaling tag is a Pink Paislee Mistable which I have had the packet for ages & didn't really know 'how' to use them.  So I have spritzed with some Olive Glimmer Mist then a rub on on top!
Well off to the beach tonight with the kids for some fish & chips since it is so hot today.  May need a spot of SSB to keep me cool!  Thanks for visiting and hope you are surviving the school holidays!

  1. Oh well, you certainly can't tell you've had a long scrappy break... you're not rusty at all. If anything, it just keeps getting better and better. These are just beautiful layouts :-)
