Thursday night's scrapbooking class...

Good morning all, Monday again already the weeks are just flying by. The sun is shinning here in Sheffield at the moment although more of the wet stuff forecast for later :-(

This is my page from last Thursdays scrapbooking class. The floral papers are from SEI which is already lightly glittered and clear embossed here and there to highlight some of the flowers. The backing sheet pale green Bazzil Dotted Swiss. The border is a deep edge MS punch brads, gem and pearls from my stash.

 These flowers were just waiting to be cut and punched out.
Thank you to those of you who took the time to email me about not being able to leave comments, its nice to know you are still calling by. I was unable to blog again yesterday and I know a lot of people are still having major problems too, lots of gremlins in the works just lately.
Hope the weather is good with you today. I am going in the garden while its fine got to make the most of it while we can. 
Happy crafting love and hugs to you all. Lynne xoxo

First scrapbook page...

Several weeks ago at our weekly scrapbooking class at the studio I was asked if I could create some pages suitable for boys. This was one of the layouts I came up with. It has been sat waiting patiently for a picture... I thought this one was perfect for it, Baby Rocco one day old.

The papers are from Best Creations transportation range I have used 'Taffic Jam'. By cutting around the traffic that is along the bottom of the sheet and mounting on to a dark blue card with foam pads I was able to use the full sheet with out any waste at all. The plane and banner are cut on the Cricut using the New Arrival cartridge which I have a feeling might get a lot of use over the coming months.

Natasha brought these gorgeous cupcakes to class on Thursday night to celebrate Roccos arrival, blue icing and blue foil cases mmm they were delicious. Thank you Natasha it was a lovely thought.

Hope you all have a great weekend and the sun is shinning where ever you are.
Happy crafting Love and hugs Lynne xox

Good morning all, I hope you have all been keeping well while I have have been away.
I have been bursting to tell you my very exciting news about my new Grandson born at 11.17am on Tuesday morning 12th July baby Rocco weighed 8lb.5oz and caught us all by surprise as he was not supposed to be coming until Wednesday morning by an arranged delivery.

Congratulations to Kyla and Ben on your beautiful son.
