A Layout at last....

I made this page at the Exhall crop last month, it's another of those where I would never have bought the papers as they just didn't seem to appeal to me, but I love the final LO.

The circle is drawn and cut out using a plate as a template, and a WRMK sew easy tool to pierce the stitching holes around it. Almost all the embellishments are cut from the papers, but I used a couple of my own stamps to add to the page (Unity and Tim Holtz). The chipboard tree is inked in autumnal colours (for an October birthday) and Glossy Accents added on top for a bit of shine.

Photos are recent ones of Katie at her birthday, I love the way she is in her PJs blowing out the candles on the cake.

I am off on a weekend retreat to Shropshire with other ladies from the Nuneaton crop, a cottage has been hired and off we go on Friday for a weekend of scrapping, silliness and lots of chat!! You never know, I might get some pages made... just hope the impending snow doesn't start until we get there! I have a feeling we might be in for a cold winter, I can't remember having snow forecast so early in the year before.



Have a lovely time at your crop what a fab idea :) Hope you are still enjoying the teaching. I have finally made 3 scrapbook pages (joined the Stampeezee group once a month.
