What a Scrappy Life

1st crop of the Year ...

and all I managed was one layout, but I didn't stress and just went with the flow.  It had started as a scraplift, from here

When ever I get a new book or magazine I sit down and go through it and add post-it notes to the pages that interest me.

Anyway, I started with the idea of using my Studio Calico frames, as in this layout and was happily going along doing a straight forward 'lift', but I wasn't feeling it (isn't this s strange saying - lol x)

And this is how it ended, completely different but still using the frames.

Then I sat down with this photo in front of me, and just stopped, and talked, laughed and still nothing came to me. I was sitting next to Julie and she did a layout, using some wood veneer produced.  Anyway, when I came home I wanted even more crafting inspiration so I checked out a couple of video over at 2peas here, and came across this one  where she show you this process.  So I came up with this 

And this is the close-up of the embellishments.  I stamped over the wood veneer and inked the edges of the frame.

I even managed to include 2 frame on the page, more wood veneer, stamps, clips

and a flair badge

I have also finished my December Journal, which I will blog later in the week.

Thanks for stopping by.
