Finally getting around to updating my blog, it is one of those things that I keep meaning to do but never get around to!
Well a lot has happened since my last posting which isn't surprising as it was nearly 3 weeks ago. I managed to do two more layouts using the gottacraft August kit which I just loved. I was eagerly awaiting the September kit but it is papers that I have already used so I gave it a miss. Anyway here are the two layouts that I did.

The new edition of Scrapbook Magazine came out last week and I was eagerly awaiting my copy to see what my layouts and article looked like. I was soooo nervous in case the article wasn't up to scratch, never having written anything like that before it was a bit daunting. I was so chuffed when I saw the magazine, my article looked really good. They have asked me to do another one so they must have thought it was ok too!!
I had to include four layouts to go with my article on using colour, I really enjoyed putting these ones together but I was really surprised at how much orange there was in a lot of my papers and I had to be really careful not to repeat too many of the colours on each layout.

I have used cogmo papers from cosmo cricket. Perfect for little boy layouts which aren't something that I do very often!!

I just loved this photo of Rebecca even though it is a few years old now. She really does have such a wicked sense of humour and this photo just captured her personality.

Rebecca on her 11th birthday, she was at KFC for tea and I handed her an envelope with train tickets in. She wasn't coming home but going to London with her Dad to go and visit the James Bond exhibition. She was sooooo excited as you can tell by the photo!

Emily's 13th birthday party nearly didn't go ahead as she developed tonsilitis the day before and had been feeling rotten. We managed to start her on some antibiotics quickley and she did get to have her party although she was certainly flagging by the end of it!!
