Scrapbook Layout...........

Something you don't see very often from me, a scrapbook layout. I actually made this one for Kiki's book some time ago, but totally forgot to take it down to London, so it has been hanging around in a drawer for the best part of two years. I found it the other day, and surprisingly - very surprisingly, I am my own worst critic - I still like it. You can see one corner has got a bit bashed in the drawer, but I have flattened it out, and kept it where I can see it so that next time I go to London, hopefully, I will remember to take it with me.
She was four when I took this photo.
I stitched around the gingham piece, then stamped in a lilac ink some flourishes from Autumn Leaves, and dotted a few dewdrops around. The flowers are punched, with buttons in the centre. It must have been before my obsession with threading buttons started, because all the buttons are naked!



Come to think of it, the layout of the page would make a nice card....wheels are turning
Don't forget you have until the end of this week to enter a card into my Promarker colouring competition, scroll down for details. The prize is worth a try....
See you tomorrow

Beautiful LO Enfys--and what an adorable little granddaughter you have! She is just precious! I love the purples--lavenders, lilacs, amethysts etc... My birthday is at the end of the month with amethyst as my birthstone; maybe that's why I love the purples. It so reminds me of Spring and the beautiful Lilac Festival we have here in Rochester, NY. Thank-you for sharing your wonderful LO! -nu2scrap-
