The sun is finally out

Sorry, sorry I didn't get back and update. I had to finish one of these layouts first though. I had fun with these. I'd had the layout of James planned for awhile with the ticket and everything. Of course they never turn out how you plan but I am pleased with the result and the one of Emma, well that was heaps of fun, just went with the flow and whatever I came up with that was it. Got a little inspo from the chicky I linked you to in the last post - Fiffi - with the buttons and flowers around the photo but the rest is all mine as far as I know anyway. Off to hang with Ruth, Michelle etc today and maybe do some scrapping, mostly chatting probably.
Finally got my Freestyle book yesterday. Oohh and my FK Awards book arrived too with 2 of my layouts in. Will mull over them today.
Have a good weekend - the sun is finally shining.

Fab layouts Lianne. I see you found a use for that dictionary paper! Cool. Hope you had a nice day catching up...get many more pages done?

Your layouts are fantastic Lianne! Love them both.

Lianne. I'm a mum of 4 boys and I'd like you to know your layouts of James always inspire me to be more creative with my boy layouts. You use papers and ideas I'd have not thought possible for boy layouts and they always look GREAT.
Please don't stop.

Ruth said...

Wow awesome pages. I love your James page, you do 'teenage boy' so well.
I am likeing that size lo too. Are you switching to that instead of 12x12? I have been thinking about it for a while now and you make it look amazing.

love the layouts Lianne. Both your children are so photogenic. Love the quote you used on Emma's layout. So true.

Both great layouts, i love how you mix and match pattern papers. Any tips on how to do this? I stick to cardstock and find it hard to introduce pattern paper into layouts.

I am keen to give the 8.5 x 11 album a go. I cant seem to find suitable album sizes though. Any suggestions on where I could look?

Gorgeous Los Lianne! Especially love the button and flower one of Emma! I have just realised I havent used any buttons for ages! (says moi who is a self confessed button freak!)
I have just bought a 8.5x 11 size album but havent done any Los yet. Not sure what Im going to put in it.
