Then onto Saturday....
I used Old Olive Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist on the Kaiser Chip Board Alphas to give them a bit of colour and I think they match perfectly with the papers. I love all the little birdies and will definately be using these papers again.
Later in the afternoon, the four of us took a bottle of wine and some nibbles and walked down the beach and sat and watched the sun go down over the water. It was so pretty. I love sitting on the beach watching the sun set. Unfortunately, I forgot to take my camera with me :( But the other girls did get some photos, so I'm hoping to steal some from them.
My next layout was of Luke. He had fallen asleep in his cot while reading a book. I had to take photos of him because I always fall asleep reading in bed and Brad has to take the book away and turn the lights off.
For this layout I used the new October Afternoon Fly A Kite patterned papers, Twiddleybitz Chipboard that I sprayed with Peppermint Stick Glimmer Mist and I have to say, this colour was recommended to me by a friend and I really like it. I also used Prima Alphas and Adorn it mini alphas for the title. And did some stitching.
Next up is Chloe's Kindy photo from last year. This is another photo I wasn't quite sure what to do with or which papers to use, but I think it goes nicely with these My Little Shoebox papers. I love the owls on here.
I haven't put any embellishments on this except for the title which is done with American Crafts Foam Alphas - Lullaby. I didn't want to take too much focus away from the photo as it was her very first school photo and the papers are quite busy.
And then I made this Birthday card for one of Chloe's little friends from school who turned 5 and had her party on Sunday.
The bird is a Quickutz die, isn't he cute. I used the Hey Birdy papers from Kaisercraft for it's body and legs and hand cut the grass from green Bazzill that I ran through the Cuttlebug using the Branches Embossing folder and then inked to make it stand out. I cut out clouds from My Little Shoebox - Skys the Limit paper and then put them put them through the cuttlebug also, using the Divine Swirls Embossing folder.
Well that is all...Phew...That took a while, but I hope you enjoy having a look at what I got up to on my weekend away. I had such a great time and hope that we can do it again soon.
I think I have found my scrapping mojo again. I wanted to come home and do more. lol But I am off to start making invitations for Chloe's Birthday Party next month. She too is going to be 5.
Thanks for looking and Ciao for now
