Scrapping the "Other Half"

Hi there,

I'm just dropping in to share some layouts I made for last month's Scrapbooking Memories magazine. I wrote an article about how to scrap your partner. I ummed and ahhed about what to include as 'your partner' as these days it could mean anything. In the end I went with majority and wrote about scrapping males from a female scrapper's point of view. I'd have needed half the magazine to cover every possible combination!

I hope you like the layouts.

And here are some close ups:

Once I thought of making a fox tail to create part of the title I couldn't resist it! My teenage son was horrified that I put something so risque in a magazine!

My other layout was a bit more subdued but I still really liked the colour combo in this.

And some closies:

Yep - that's how long we've been together!

I have this layout displayed on a sofa table in my loungeroom and every time I walk past it those Metallic Melts catch the light beautifully. I love them!

Thanks do much for dropping in.

Happy scrappin'!
