Three layouts

As it is half term I have a little bit more time for scrapbooking. So far this week I have managed three layouts and I have a crop tomorrow night so hopefully I should produce some more.
The first layout shows Matthew's guests at his birthday party in April. There were 12 other children there aged from 10 months to 9 years. It was lovely to be able to share our special day with all our friends. The layout uses papers from the new Echo Park range Sweet Day which I bought from Gottacraft - I love the paper with the little colour polaroids on and used this to mount each photo. Quite a simple layout really but Im pleased with this record of our guests on the day.

The next layout is the current Basic Grey sketch . I used some more of the Piccadily range. Just love these photos of the cheeky boys at Matthew's party playing with the Hula Hoops. Im really happy with how the layout came together. Added some paper pearls to make my sunshine pop!

The last layout uses some old Sassafras Lass papers. I keep most my scrap stuff in the loft room and every now and again I go and raid it for old things to use up. I love this combination of pink/red and Aqua/navy. It was perfect for this photo of Anna and Charlie (he features on all three layouts on this post!). I used the technique of just cutting blocks of papers from the range up and then layering them . I did have to shuffle them around a few times until I was happy. I added some newer embellishments such as the Amy Tangerine tags and paisley swirl, a pink paislee wooden spool , some thickers and some more paper pearls.

Thanks for coming to visit my blog and many thanks to those who leave comments. They are much appreciated,
