Little layout

I did manage to do three layouts at the weekend, plus two cards. Now making cards is very unusual for me as I am not really a card maker, but as I had some scraps left from doing two of the layouts I decided to use them up making cards. I have not photographed the cards or the two layouts yet that produced the cards, but here is a layout I made using some of the Prima Strawberry Kisses line. The photograhs are from *gulp* 19 years ago - nearly! It is Penny's birthday on Sunday and I had been thinking a lot about her birth and so decided to scan in a couple of photos and record the details about her labour - not the really gory bits though! I have done the journalling on a couple of tags, which are behind the main picture, so you don't have to read about it if you don't want to lol! I used another of the Pencillines book sketches as the starting point for this layout, rotating the sketch to use landscape photos. So, here it is:
Gosh, I look so young! So does Hugh too! I was pleased with this layout as I covered the frame with fabric and used some fabric under the white flower; I don't usually use fabric on my layouts so I was pleased with how it came out. Hugh managed to get me the MS large butterfly punch in New Orleans, so as you can see, I used it a bit here!

You've really been on a roll. Love your layouts from last weekend as well as this one! The fabric did come out very nicely. I'll have to give it a try.
