Another new week and I've just come back from teaching my second ribbon spool class. I love to see how everyone arranges their flowers and embellishments. Everyone's spool turned out so beautifully. I wouldn't mind doing this class over and over just to see all the pretty that comes from it. Well done ladies.

I said I would have another layout done before the end of the month, so here it is. I've been hoarding this Prima Craftsman collection since last September but I thought it was time to break out the pack and do a layout. I really love this paper line with the draftsman drawings - so beautifully designed.
Hey Good Looking
I love these photos of hubby as he usually makes faces at the camera and these are so natural and unguarded. The collection is a great combination of gears, light bulb and balloons. I added stenciling and sprays to the red paper before layering on my matting papers.
If you don't think you can use flowers on male pages, think again. A few dotted around the place won't "emasculate" the layout as long as you don't make it the focal point. I love the metal lamps on the top left.
I'm sure the title of the layout will amuse hubby somewhat. I hope so, anyway. Do you see that bumpy texture on the back paper? That's Goosebumps - such a fun texture spray, which you can use on stencils or stamps.
Papers, chipboard, flowers, leaves, wood accents, pendants, metal gears, stencil and mini alphabets all from the Prima Marketing Craftsman Collection

It's nearing the end of the month. Don't know if I have time to squeeze in one more layout but I will have the HKMC March Kit layouts posted out on the 28th, so keep an eye out.
See you soon,
