Finally, A New Layout

Hi there,

Does anyone else feel like this February is longer than usual? Not sure why. Maybe because CNY seems to be stretching out forever. I finally got to do my first ribbon spool class. What fun that was and everyone left with the most beautiful mini album. What a lovely gift this one will make for someone special.

Thank you to my first batch of girls who joined me for this project. I can't wait to meet the second lot. Reminder that the next class is on Tuesday, 26th February at 7pm.  If you wanted to do this project but there was no space, as long as you can get together four to six friends, we can work out a private lesson as well.

On to my layout. I usually have a crop session at my place on Friday mornings and it's great fun to sit with friends, catch up and have a few nibbles and lunch. I don't always get a whole layout done in one session, but I do try to finish it the same day. I'm one of those people who can't leave a layout alone until it's finished.  Anyway, here's the layout. Pretty simple, but I love the colours together.

Remember This Day
 I've previously used a black and white version of this photo on a tutorial layout, but have not yet scrapbooked it for my own album. It's part of a series of photos taken by a good friend of ours a few years ago.  As for the papers; aren't they beautiful? The primary colours of the papers coordinate so well together and the patterns are simply gorgeous.
 You know I love my flowers - have to have them somewhere on my page.
The papers came with a whole sheet of tags to cut out, and I couldn't stop cutting and ended up with a pile of them, so I used them like a matt instead. Each tag is different and so pretty.

Products Used
Papers, chipboard labels, sticker borders and buttons by Carta Bella Traditions collection
Sticker word labels by Teresa Collins Now and Then collection
Flowers by Prima Marketing
Distress Inks in corresponding colours by Tim Holtz for Ranger Inks

I'm now working on some new layouts, especially for the HKMC March kit club, but hopefully will be able to squeeze in a few extras before the end of the month.

Thanks for dropping by,
