more layouts and more blogging

Its a miracle - another post. I can't promise to keep this up as next week its back to school but for the time being my intentions are good.

Ive a couple more layouts to share. Both again with inspiration from Shimelle. (wow - managed to get my links to work this time - thanks Sandra F!)

The first is a photo from my cousin's wedding last month. It was just the most beautiful wedding. The weather was great - the rain stopped just before the ceremony and the sun shone for the rest of the day. The venue was beautiful, the bride was just stunning and of course it is always lovely to spend time with family. Ive used Shimelle's scrapbook starting points and have gone with her suggested yellow/grey/black/aqua combination. Not colours I would usually combine - but I love the results. Ive used some Authentique paper ranges which are fantastic and added a few other embellishments from Jenni Bowling and MME.

The second layout is a challenge from Shimelle. This time from the scrapbook sketch of the week. I often scrapbook Matthew in bold colours - oranges, blue, reds etc but these photos of him in a lilac t-shirt, stroking guinea pigs and rabbits' with me in a blue floral skirt just called for something a little softer. The title can't be read very well in the photo but its called 'cuddle time'.


  1. Beautiful layouts and great photos

  3. Beautiful layouts Lorna - the wedding pictures look fab against the sunny yellow and I love how you've done a boy-ish layout using pastels
