As promised on my last blog, I have tried not to leave it so long between posts this time!
I recently had my first feature in Australian Scrapbook Ideas magazine. The brief was to use A4 papers on 12 x 12 layouts. I was also supposed to keep the A4 papers intact on as many layouts as possible which I found surprisingly hard!
By far my favourite layout of them all was the one where I cut the A4 papers up completely and made stitched circular embellishments with them. Here it is.
This is my bestie. We've been besties for so many years now I don't remember how many! We love going out together and have such a great time. This event was a 60s night and the colours of the costumes were brilliant. I wanted to capture all the psychedelic groovin' that was happening that evening!
I also made another layout of the same evening, this time of the four of us who went together. We were originally supposed to go with our hubbies but a couple of them couldn't make it so the others pulled out. More fool them as it was such a great night! This group of girls are a blast!
Again, I tried to capture all that groovy 60s knock-your-socks off colour. It was just coincidence that we all had hired long white boots so I had to make a feature of this. The fact that I could use the words to "These boots were made for walkin'" was the icing on the cake.
For a complete change of subject I then chose to scrap about a funny thing my son said. Here's the layout:
My son has a great sense of humour. I was actually looking for a formal photo to go with this A4 paper but I found this photo when I was looking. I thought it suited perfectly! I had fun making the formal shirt on the left of the layout. I wrote my journalling on the handkerchief then tucked it in the pocket. Here's a close up:
And last but not least is a layout of my mum and her sisters. I fussy cut the flowers in the A4 paper so they formed a floral frame around the ladies. Can anyone work out which is the famous Aunty Shirley from my last blog?
Thanks so much for looking. I hope you all have a great week.
PS - Shirley's second from the left.
