A big Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all had a fun New Year's Eve and have a wonderful 2013.
My brother and his family are visiting us for a week so I thought I'd quickly get a few layouts up on this blog while they're out. These have been published in Scrapbooking Memories. Please forgive me if I don't visit your blog this week as I'll be fairly busy here!
Here's a lovely one of my gorgeous nephew Archie. He so adores his dad.
The background is the packaging from a pack of Prima letters. There's a lot of Prima product on this layout. I had to keep these pics small as they were slightly out of focus. I fixed them a bit in photoshop but not enough to enable me to enlarge the photos any more than this.
Here's another favourite of mine. I love getting messy with paints and my daughter's clothes allow me to do this on pages about her!
I think the cut-out picture works really well here. I was actually forced into this by the fact that the mess in her bedroom was visible in the photo! I also enjoyed showing the details of what she was wearing, from the fake ear stretcher to the ripped stockings. I can certainly say that my daughter has very distinctive tastes in clothes!
These two layouts were both published in Scrapbooking Memories Vol 14, no 12.
This layout was published in Volume 15, No 1. This is one of the few layouts I've done about my husband. I'm not sure why I scrap many more layouts about the kids than my hubby. I know this is something we're all guilty of. I guess I'll only have the kids around for a few more years and perhaps I'm trying to make the most of them!
Here's the layout:
This layout is created entirely from office supplies. I had a bit of fun raiding Officeworks and my desk drawers for supplies! The background behind the photo is coloured sticky tape. Unfortunately, the colour's not very strong and I had to use many layers to make it show.
I hope you're all enjoying the school hols. It's about 42 degrees here today so we're not going anywhere....
