I had a great time at Scrapaholics on Monday and managed to do two layouts which is brilliant for me. I think sitting with Sandie is good for me. We chat and scrap together and I seem to be able to do better with her there.

This first one was using a small part of the July Kit. The photo is one that I found in my Mother in Law's bits and pieces after she had died, I know that the arrowed person is her but I have guessed as to the year, but as she would have left school at 13 I am assuming that she is 11 or 12. The title was one of the questions printed on the patterned paper which I then mounted on to card to give it extra bulk.

This next one was done for a challenge, we were invited to use neopolitan colours Chocolate Pink & Vanila, a large photo, circles and sparkly bits. I took the photo that morning and it seemed the best one to use, I really enjoyed making these pages especially altering the photo of me & my cat to blur out the background so that it didn't distract from the main subject.

I had a great evening too Mary, I love your two layouts, just gorgeous!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
