And for a further challenge Wendy suggested that myself, Sy and her should all do a layout using the same photograph.
So here is what I came up with to fulfil all these challenge criteria using a photograph taken at our July crop earlier this year.
The papers used are Simple Stories 'Vintage Bliss', Imaginisce 'Welcome Spring' and MME 'Kate & Co'. The badge and doily came out of a Papermaze monthly kit. The title was cut out of foam using Tim Holtz 'Wanted' alphabet die. I used the washi tape in my embellishment clusters.
Don't forget to visit Wendy and Sy's blogs to see what they did with the same photograph!!
I have found some thank you cards that I forgot to share when I did my mini series on thank yous.
These are made with Stampin' Up Watercolour Wishes Card kit - great for making very quick and easy cards and after the kit has been used you are left with a lovely set of sentiment stamps that you can use over and over. I did actually buy the kit as it was the only way to get the sentiment stamps!!
Every year I go away to a beautiful converted barn in Hereford for a weekend of craftiness and madness with a bunch of fab ladies (and a few guys thrown in for good measure). Secretly the little rascals colluded to make a lovely book for my 50th birthday last year.
It is the most beautiful hand-crafted item I have ever been given and I will treasure it forever - I am so lucky to have all you lovely people in my life and as friends.
I wish the camera would pick up how beautifully the cover sparkles and shines.
Alison's pages (sent all the way from Australia)
Denise's pages (sent all the way from South Africa)
Fiona's pages (I love these Marillion lyrics xx)
Thank you all so so much, I just adore the book - tomorrow I will share the rest of the book
Hi - I'm Karen thanks for stopping by my blog and taking a peek. I'm a 50 something, Marillion obsessed, craft mad individual. Thankfully I have an understanding hubby who is also mad on Marillion and doesn't seem to mind me filling the house with all my crafting paraphenalia. I have recently quit working as a clerk to a local school's governing body and am now adjusting to being a full-time domestic goddess.
Thank you very much for taking the time to look at my little blog.
