Been busy ...

... not doing my assignment! Actually, the assignment is all but finished (phew!) and the scrapbooking was needed to help me think! :)

This page is of hub and Nick at Lake Laggan, Scotland in 1996. The background paper (Fancy Pants 'Crush') did most of the work and I just titivated that with some flowers and gems. I hand cut the picture frame and punched all the holes (using Cropodile) - not very straight! The other papers (tartan and spotty) are A2Z It's Elementary, the letters are American Craft Thickers and the dragonfly rubon is from the recent Oriental kit from QVC (don't like oriental much, but the kit was a bargain and you can use it with most things).

This page is of photos taken on our way to St Tropez in 2005, when we stopped at a deserted little cove. It was glorious - so much nicer than the crowded and commercialised town of St Trop itself. The feet are Paul's. I struggled to find paper to match, but finally used Scenic Route's Loveland papers. The letters are from American Crafts and Basic Grey - flowers are from my stash and the boat was bought from Bitz!

The next three pages, I did this evening, all together - like a kind of assembly line! The first one is of Nick with his hamster, Lizzie! He loved the little thing, even although she kept us up at nights with the noise she made whirling around on her blasted wheel! She also gave you a nasty nip if you weren't careful. He cried when she died and held her in his hand for ages, hoping she was just hibernating! The paper is from American Crafts Elegant range; letters are American Crafts Thickers and Basic Grey; turquoise felt is from Fancy Pants and other bits and bobs are Elsie and ModPops (I think). The hearts in the photo are windings I typed in before printing.

Next, I scrapped Andorra. I just printed out a load of photos, 36 cm square to go around the bigger one in the middle. I think I printed them out too small, but never mind! The paper is Autumn Leaves French Twist and the letters are American Crafts. I hand cut the swirl, after tracing around a Maya Road chipboard swirl - and the foam ladybird is American Crafts FieldHouse. It's all a bit pink really.

Finally, I scrapped one of my favourite photos. It was taken at a store, just outside of Zion National Park, on the road to Las Vegas, in 2004. (I bought a string of china chilli peppers in the shop!). I wanted to keep it quite simple, so that the picture did all the work. The paper is K&Co Mira, rubons from the Oriental QVC TSV and October Afternoon + velvet flowers from Maya Road and Fancy Pants felt.

All for now!
