I enjoyed having a go at Craft Dens Anything Goes Blog last time so I thought I'd have another go for more than one fold challenge! I have used Bo Bunny's Burnt Orange Dot as the background and Bo Bunnys Psycadelic Flower girl paper which I have cut and folded in the bottome left and top right corner. I really love this paper! I then coloured in some letters with a brown copic pen (thanks Sue for this idea!) I used some ribbon and flowers from stash and used turquoise stickles around the border. Hope you like it.

D is for Dancing and Dreaming!! I thought I would have a go at Craft Dens Challenge Blog Anything Goes as I have been wanting to for ages but sometimes life throws up challenges of its own! However I have managed to have a little go this time! To create my LO i used basic yellow cardstock as my background and Bo Bunny Splendor Swirl inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye. I used Primas "Very Cherry" to frame the photos and cut out the gorgeous roses to scatter across the page. I stickled these with Xmas Red. Sizzixs Hunky dory lettering for the title and gems from stash. I would like to enter this into Anything Goes Challenge the letter'D'. - How very exciting!!

I have unfortunately missed the last 2 weeks of my lovely scrapbook class but have stayed up late a few nights to do some layouts - am paying the price now by being even more tired than usual! Cant wait to get back to class on Thursday evening.
The firework layout is basic bazzil blackbird and i used BoBunnys Blast Off range 'starburst' as I thought it looked a bit like fireworks. I then used lots of different colour stickles to try to make them look even more like fireworks! Alphabets from stash and papers from craft den. For the princess LO I used magnolias 'once upon a time' paper and bling and ribbon from stash. I have a little girl who loves dressing up more than life itself and is steadily going through my necklaces, scarfs, bracelets and lip gloss!
Hope you have enjoyed the long weekend and I hope you can leave a comment as I love reading them but not holding out much hope as blogger is not playing ball recently.

As I couldnt make my weekly scrapbook class this week I was getting crafting withdrawals so my lovely hubby kept the kids busy and gave me some time to do a couple of layouts Hurrah!!
Carefree summer days is Bo Bunnys persuasion stripe paper with flowers from stash and my trademark stickles! Ive used tim holtz upon a time die cut for the title which is the reverse side of the paper.
My first boys page!! I so enjoyed creating this layout let me tell you! I used echo park papers little boy range and sizzix hunky dory die cut for the lettering. My hubby bought me a second hand bigshot for easter and I have been having so much fun with it - anyone know of any good alphabet fonts please let me know!
Have a fab day tomorrow and hope the Easter Bunny brings you something yummy!!!

Had a lovely time on Thursday evening at the Craft Den and luck would have it we were doing the exact colours to compliment the professional photo we had taken of Caitlin and Jake for Mothers Day! Also had a few minutes this weekend to do a layout literally was quite rushed but enjoyed it all the same! Hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Xx

When Lynne said last week that we would be doing a wedding lo this week i knew I had the most perfect photo.... Caitlin aka pricess aurora & her grandad aka prince charmimg play a game every week where they get married and then have a wedding dance. To do this they have to wear their wedding hats. Caitlins is grandmas sun hat and grandads is the washing up bowl! These little moments are so priceless and that is why I love scrapbooking so much because you get to capture that moment in time and present in the most beautiful way....

Really enjoyed getting back to scrapbook classes at Craft Den last night - was a bit anxious as first time ive left jake at night but when i got home after a really enjoyable class they were both fast asleep in bed! Looking forward to next week now! We made a really lovely page (as usual) learning a few tips about matting photos to make them stand out. Here is my page along with some updated pics of Jake who is already 5 months old!
