Girls day out....

Going shopping with Mum and sis today to Solihull, it's become a minor tradition to do this at half term, and now our local Borders (with Paperchase) has closed I'm looking forward to it even more! As Julia commented on her blog recently i have to admit to being another stationary junkie, and Paperchase is my idea (after a craft shop) of heaven... retail wise!

Another page to share. Since my MS punches arrived i can't seem to make anything without them, this LO is no exception. I used a very old photo of Mum and her family (Mum is the baby at the front) to record comments Mum has made about her own Dad, and his love for a big family being based on him being an only (and lonely) child.

I used Graphic 45 papers (loving this new Boardwalk set from Stampeezee) MS flower punches, Autumn Leaves alpha (very bravely stamped straight onto the cardstock :o with Crackle Accents over the top!!) and a left over bit of bling by zva. The tickets down the middle did read 5c as the kit is from the states, but a little addition with a journalling pen and hey presto, a British embellishment!!!

What a great heritage LO Ann.
Those MS punches are lovely but I'm on a strict no stash diet - at least I can use them at our craft centre!

The LO is just fab, love the ticket alteration and the more you use your punches, the more I need! The photo and story are just gorgeous. Just come back from Salisbury and a small foray into Paperchase...would have been very rude not to!

Such a beautiful layout. It's got the most amazing vintage feel to it, and I'd use that punch too on every layout, it's gorgeous :)
