At last a layout

Today I actually managed to do a layout. It has to be the first one in about 5 months. I did cheat though and scraplifted a layout by Kathy Bridgewater who had hers published in the Scrapbook Inspirations Ideas Book.
It's amazing to realise that you can do a whole 12 x 12 layout without buying any new stash!! I used Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey papers and doodled lots of circles.
I also used a corrugated letter (which I have to admit I never thought I'd use) and the title numbers are Thickers I got from a kit last year.
The photo is one of about 3 pictures I managed to get of Samuel this summer. At 13 he's now not such a willing volunteer to have his picture taken. A bit like his Dad really!! He only had this one taken as he was with my nephew (who's 3) on a wooden train at Baxters.
I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed scrapping but have to admit I am the snail of the scrapping world. I took about 3 hours to put this lot together!!


  1. Three hours well spent! Lovely layout. Super picture, you'd never guess he was a reluctant model!

  2. It's a beautiful layout. I have a DD 13, DD 20 and DS 22 so you can imagine how few photos I get ;o) though with DD 20 now pregnant I do get them a bit more often and once my GD is here she won't be able to stop me ;o)

  3. So are you going to keep up the momentum and come to the crop on Sunday???

  4. It's looking great and time never matters as long as you enjoyed it.

  5. Love, love, love it! It's absolutely brilliant, I wanted to reach out and stroke the circles, beacuse they looked fluffy! Don't stop scrapping, please ... and go to the crop on Sunday!
