{Actual Real Life Layouts!}

As I promised I have pictures of some actual layouts I have made. I have over the past few days really enjoyed creating these layouts. Enjoying the whole process. Made me happy.
This layout really sums up the above statement. And I talked about this in my previous post too - as much as I adore my finished pages, I also LOVE the process, the stash and creating. I've used dotted Swiss, American crafts, October afternoon, a shimelle printable and various other bits.
For my Birthday last year I wanted to go to Ping Pong for Dim Sum. The lovely Katherine introduced me to this place, and I really wanted to show K. These were just a couple pics we took - I'm loving the colour combo Pink, Purple and lime Green!! LUSH! I've used dotted swiss, hambly, my little shoebox, sassfrass, cosmo cricket, heidi swapp mask (for the birthday)and amercian crafts.
I love how pretty this layout turned out. The photo originally I'm wearing a purple dress and it quite dark, by changing it to B&W it meant way more options. As we don't know the sex of the baby I'm enjoying being overly pink and pretty!!! The 'As you Wish' is from living room floor off etsy - and I've had it for ages! I've used American Crafts mainly on this page - paper, thickers, chipboard, ribbon and stamps!
As always our weekends scrapping in the woods usually lead to a fair few photos. Hence the need to scrap it! I really love the green AC pp with the trees - super cute. Then added a little bit of bling - Job Done. Used Kraft Bazzil, American Crafts, Cosmo Cricket and a selection of ribbons and bits.
This layout is pictures from K's Birthday celebrations - with his TWO cakes!! As the pictures were quite dark and the candles bright colours I decided to use a real mix of colours on the layout. Pleased with the outcome -I loves those AC red thickers! I've used Scenic Route, Sassfrass, American Crafts and then just a load of random stuff!!
That's it - right must dash, have a cake in the oven! Smells delish (Nigella's Madeira Cake Recipe!)
Oh and thanks so much for the comments on previous post, it felt really good putting my thoughts down on a post.
