Show off Saturday

One of the blogs I follow is the talented Leanne's . Not only is she a talented scrapper but she also has a son just a couple of months older than Matthew so when we meet at our monthly crops we often talk about our boys. She has found a couple of really good ideas on other blogs that I would like to try.

The first is Take Twelve. Im not going to do this this month as it was on Thursday and I didnt take enough photos as I hadnt seen the blog. But Ive signed up for emails so hopefully next month I will remember. The 12th Feb falls on a Sunday so at least im not at work and I should have things to take photos of. The second is Show off Saturday - very simple idea but quite a nice one so Im going to show off my three layouts from my crop yesterday.

This first layout was taken from a layout I'd seen using October Afternoon papers. I love this farmhouse range. My layout is very similar and I didnt deviate that much from the original which can be found here . This is my mum and Matthew.

This is pretty much my own design. Id seen a patchwork design but I went for a more randem approach and just cut out loads of different sizes of paper. I used my studio calico kit. This is a photo of Matthew at Druscillas when we had that freak warm weather weekend in October.

This one is a gorgeous sketch on page maps. You can see the original on my pinterest site. Ive used lots of different bits and pieces here - October Afternoon papers, LYB embellishments, Thickers, buttons, KI memories. The photos are Matthew climbing in and out of a box on Christmas Day. Very sweet!
