I THINK I'm starting to turn a corner with this horrid virus and tonsillitis - hurrah! I've also managed to get a few layouts completed in the last few days, including some of my Christmas journal - hurrah again.
First up is a layout that I did with Paula at a crop class. Its a photo of me and my baby boy L, taken at a wedding when he was only just over a year old. I love the candid shot which caught us both smiling madly at something.
The photo is not quite as dark in real life although I am definitely in the shadows a bit (which suits me!) I covered a chipboard butterfly with old music paper and I cut some of the branding strip from some Webster's Pages stickers for the side (thanks to Emma Trout for that idea). It says "Your life. Beautiful."
I lost a wooden flower somehow when I had put it up at the crop hence the non matching gems but I kind of like this bit. There is a little brown heart from an Amy Tangerine stamp set that sets "You Rock" and I've continued the aqua with the little heart there too.
The infamous camera from the same Amy Tangerine stamp set which I coloured with promarker and then added Glossy Accents too. The papers are Prima and American Crafts and the background is, um, OLD.
This is the only LO that I've finished on the night of the class (other than the gems) and I'm really pleased with it. I love the way it came together and for once I am happy with the colours and how they all work despite being from different manufacturers.
I feel like I am getting back into the swing of things a bit more now and I will be so happy once I have my energy back. Apparently Spring is on its way and we will have warmer temperatures and more sun which can only help I reckon. Here's to the Spring!
Bye for now
