A little Old and lots of Gold!!

This is the layout I made for the Scrapbook Inspirations sketch challenge a few months ago and it has just been published in the June issue so here it is........
I had 3 days to make it so was really panicky as well as having to get my first DT project in that same week.....there were some late nights back then!!


I had to choose a technique and I chose to use the letter tiles as they are so versatile.....I pretty much stuck to the sketch but there was no way I could use any sporting photos we just don't do them in our family!! As I said in my brief the closest my family get to sports is a gentle game of boules or watching other people drive vintage motor cars!!

I used up the last of my Prima Say It In Crystals which is why I have been desperate to get some more.....so no more magazine calls for me until I can get my hands on some!! lol!!

I am waiting for this months Bubbly Funk kit to arrive and have seen the sneak peek on the site.....there was me thinking it was yellow and brown, actually turns out it's Gold...phew.....I had been wondering how I was going to tackle Yellow and had decided to go with black and white photos.....these papers are lovely but then what else would you expect from "My Minds Eye"



I have planned a whole months worth of Fathers Day projects but am now thinking yum yum.....how about something for me......maybe a pretty layout or two!!

I love this job!! I get to be my own boss and be creative director...the only thing I can't and won't ever be is an IT genius!!! (note to Mark!!) xxx

Love and Old Gold

Gorgeous and pink, just how I like em, lol! The prima bling sheets are great value, and add a touch off class to a layout. Hope you get some soon. You are doing really well with all your designing, good for you Ruth.
