And now for something a little crafty

Well, seeing as I have to stay awake for quite a while tonight, in order to pick up my son from his school trip at 3am in the morning!! I thought i would do another blog post.

Having not been too crafty the last time I blogged I thought I would put the layouts that I can show (some were for my son's album which is now top secret because I think he has got wind of it!!) that i did at the retreat and a few done since I got home.

The first one is one that made me hold my breath when I did it becaue it involved tearing paper, sewing, eyeletting into the paper, setting gromlets and the photograph - i blame my co-leeds papers dolls for this - we were pushing each other to try something new during the retreat and this was my brave attempt.

I used the Bo Bunny papers and the Making Memories Gromlets that came with the BigBiteII

my eyelet setting, sewing, setting gromlets and tearing are shown better below

I then made a very special layout.

This was to celebrate the long wait I had until I was able to enrol my daughter as a brownie.

I think the journalling says it all.

This is an arrow that I inked and then covered with glossy accents (another first for me) and I am delighted with the way it turned out.

The next lo is one of the easiest i have done because I managed to get hold of the perfect paper for the photo which would mean very little work would be needed to make a clear and simple LO.

I stamped swirls over the edge of the photos to tie in with the paper and used thickers and stickers for the title. The date was done using my dymo

I will do a seperate post for the rest of the LO's.
