Two Days in a Row ..............

Well who would have thought it. Back with a vengence - blogging two days in a row.  Just a short post today with another two of the layouts from my scrapping weekend with UKS friends in Moffat last weekend.  I so wish I could have one of those weekends once a month - it would be a great stress buster and a great stash buster too!!!!!!!1  Despite all the chatting, eating and drinking I did manage eight layouts so I was pleased.  I also took advantage of Heather having her Big Shot there and cut a pile of chipboards swirlies and some grungepaper Tim Holtz tattered florals.  The only thing with them is I am not sure if ink will cover the grungepaper completely - any advice on that point would be gratefully received.

So the layouts

The first one is Where did you get that hat - anyone who knows me knows I do not do cutting out or measuring - well for this one I very bravely cut into a gorgeous sheet of crate paper restoration and cut out the flowers for this layout - I have discovered that spritzing, scrunching, leaving to dry and inking the edges covers up a multitude of sins where bad cutting out is concerned so now I am on the look out for specific papers where I can cut the elements out. Who would have thought it.

Well for some reason I can't seem to upload the other two layouts so I might need to do a separate post.  Hmm need a bit of technical help methinks

Aha, seem to have cracked it.  The second layout is using the fab Glitz designs kit from Sandra at Gottacraft.  This is my favourite kit so far.  I love the bright green along with the black and white.  Photo is of my daughter Fiona (posing as usual) and I converted the pic to black and white as I thought it looked better with the papers.  I can see me using every last scrap of this kit.


  1. Such beautiful layouts ... I'm hoping now you're on a roll with blogging again, we'll see more stunning layouts from you.
