'Tea for Two' Final Two!

And so here I am with the other two layouts I made from this kit. This is based on the Scrap365 sketch for this month.

When I showed this layout to Penny she really liked it - especially the little bird and the pencil by the poem.
And a close up of the journalling:
It surprised me that I was able to create this next layout with such a 'ladylike' kit.
However, the word paper was perfect for this photo and I highlighted the sentence by outlining the words with a black pen and then filling in three of the words with the glitter glue which was included in the kit.
In this close up you can see the outlined words and the word filled in with the glitter glue.

So that finishes off this kit - just in time for me to be receiving my third! And I haven't really started on my second one yet! How many layouts did I make with it? Eleven! Can't believe that I've actually created 11 layouts this month! This kit is obviously very good for me lol! All I added to it was one extra piece of white cardstock to enable me to use up the scraps of paper. So this is extremely good value for me and good for my soul too, as when I scrapbook I really relax.

Me on Monday

Well almost! I'm in Leeds on business and didn't have time to post yesterday. Posting today from my phone. 

Well this weekend was spent taking Hugh to spend his birthday vouchers at the train shop, ironing and tidying my scrapping space. Not very busy but nice and relaxing. 

Going home this afternoon and the rest of the week in the office. Penny has two friends coming round to celebrate Halloween on Friday and I am hoping to get more knitting done.
Here I am this morning in my hotel room. 

Whatever you are up to this week I hope you have a nice time. Waving to Sian whose idea this meme was.

Prolific weekend!

Whilst Hugh was in Vienna, I had plenty of spare time to scrapbook and I was on a roll! I popped Dan Brown's Inferno into the CD player, opened up the conservatory doors, grabbed my 'Tea for Two' kit and settled down.

I love the cork hearts in this kit and scattered them about on this layout.
I had used the 'B' side of this bottom piece of paper for another layout, but managed to save the wording as I really liked it. It was perfect to go with this photo of the two of us taken in Crete.
By the time I got to this layout I was down to scraps, apart from the Shimelle word paper. I have loved this photo of Penny ever since I took it, so was really pleased to finally scrap it.
And this layout was also made with the scraps that were left. I had to add a piece of white cardstock, but apart from that this all came from the kit (oh, the sequins are from the 'Early Autumn' kit).

I also made three other layouts over the weekend - the one of the concert last Friday which I have already shared and another two which I will share with you soon!

Some layouts to share

Back in July, Penny and I took Wendy to Norsey Woods as although it is very local to us, Wendy had never been there. To us it is one of our local places to go for a walk and we have been going there since the children were little. So we had great fun showing Wendy around.

The sun was out and Wendy and I both had our cameras. Penny was very patient whilst we did lots of wildlife and scenery photograpy!

These two layouts have been made with the 'Tea for Two' kit. I loved the doilies and thought that they would go really well with this photo of the butterfly.
This wood effect paper was perfect as the background for this collage of photos taken during our walk. It was great to have Penny as she took this photo of me and Wendy!
The flower cluster in the bottom corner was on the bottom of another sheet of paper, but I fussy cut it to layer up on this layout.

Thanks for looking and I will be back again soon!

Me on Monday

Well this has been a funny old weekend. Started Friday evening with a fun trip to London to a concert with Penny, didn't get home until 12.30am and then had to be up and out by 8.45am to take Penny to the chirpodist! The rest of Saturday was spent doing chores and then some scrapbooking. Penny went out to a wrestling match in London and I had to take Hugh to the station as he was travelling to Heathrow to get a plane to Vienna on business.

Penny got back very late Saturday night, early Sunday morning and I had to stay up as she had forgotten her key!

So today has been spent relaxing and not doing much! It has been lovely and sunny and very mild so I got some washing dried on the line and then spent the rest of the day in the conservatory with the doors open doing scrapbooking. I managed to finish my 'Tea for Two' kit and have done 6 layouts this weekend!

This week sees a crafting evening with Wendy and Sue, Hugh returning on Wednesday and Penny off to uni and a haircut on Friday.

Hope you have had a fun weekend and have a good week.

Not exactly me on Monday, but me and Penny as we set off for the concert!
Saying 'hello' to Sian whose idea this meme is.
