Weekend Crop and other news ....

Again I'm playing catch up as usual, behind on everything this week. I think its because James has finished school and I don't have a set structure to my days. Anyway, these are the layouts I did at my weekend crop in Solihull, onces a year Morag and Nikki organise a weekend crop Saturday 10 - midnight, and Sunday 10 - 6pm. This year they added a make & take, 2 layouts and a mini book in with the price, so even if you hadn't planned your scrapping for the weekend at least you would come home with some finish layouts etc.

So this is the one I did on Sunday, Heart & Soul, designed by Morag

As usual with Morag, pink papers but converted my photo to black & white and it worked ok.

Now, I'm really trying to use up my stash and especially by Scrapagogo kits, so this is using the June 09 kit, and following the sketch for the Week 1 birthday challenge over on the Clubhouse.

Just 4 Me - flowers given to me at a resent meal out from the girls from school as a leaving gift. Used hybrid tickets (July) and for some reason couldn't get the butterflies to print off so use my butterfly punches instead.

Botanical Gardens - another gogo kit one, using July 09 kit, and following the ideas from the July Academy. Photos taken whilst on my photographic course at Bontanical Gardens in July.

Prince Charming - Scrapagogo July 09 kit. Photo of Jon at our last street BBQ. I've added alot of little details to this layout and it the best of the ones I've done this weekend.

the "42" represents his age.

the "charming" is from the July Greeting sheet.

Doesn't this stamp go well with my title, its one a borrowed from Julie, not sure who makes it, but it stamps really well.

Amazing Boy - this was quick on that documents how I felt when James got "Pupils' pupil of the year. Using Scrapagogo Greeting July 09 Elements.

Joy Ride - October Afternoon - Road Map - These photos are 4 years old, I've scrapped them previous, but decided to do them again with these wonderful papers. Of course I had to get the full collection, so I've got loads to use up. Again added some extra details.

The torned and inked edges, the 3 buttons to represent "traffic lights" and a few stickers down the sides.

Another quick layout of James and his Football Coach at the presentation at the end of term. Using Fancy Pants.

Thanks for stopping by...

Good grief girl, how many!! Am jealous at your output! They are all lovely LOs, love your 'added details'. But I guess my fave is the LO about your son being pupil of the year - oh that beautiful smiling face!
