ANOTHER 12x12 LAYOUT......

The first of the wedding photos from my nephew/Godson's wedding in 2008. ( I take a while to catch up LOL)
My DD Lauren and DS2 Blair after the wedding ceremony.
Lauren's dress was beautiful and Blair looked so handsome in his suit. title yet LOL

Luxe papers, Bazzill Bling cardstock, Martha Stewart border punch, Autumn Leaves "memories" stamp, herma repo and tabs, Prima crystals on flowers, glamour dust.

A 12x12 LAYOUT........

Don't faint LOL
I love this photograph of my DD Lauren, it was taken about 3 years ago when she still had her natural auburn hair colour (atm it's a mahogany colour).
It did take me nearly a whole afternoon to work on this LO as I find die cut papers quite challenging. I'm still not sure it's finished as I can "see" a little butterfly on the top right somewhere. You can't see it in the photo but there is glamour dust on the flower and swirls.

Recipe :-
Bo Bunny papers, stickers etc from their Flutterby range, bazzill card stock, satin ribbon in cream and brown, glittered alphabet stickers from Making Memories, glamour dust, quicky glue pen, beautiful beaded swirl and butterfly from Prima.

I bought some decopatch papers, glue, brush and wooden blanks at the SECC on Friday. I've been meaning to try this craft for ages but as usual never got around to it LOL. Tonight I started working on a little wooden star using black/white lace patterned paper, silver paper and black/silver crackle patterned paper... will let you see how it turned out tomorrow.

My BFF Fiona and I went to the SECC for the craft show .... it was pretty dire again and we only managed to spend a few pounds :( The stalls were mainly " pile it high sell it cheap" with very few proper craft stalls. There was a severe lack of 12x12 papers, even Fee only managed to buy a few sheets and she can spot good papers a mile away LOL I managed to buy some Prima flowers BUT bought the same ones twice from the same stall.... too much medication LOL

and to prove it I even have some crafty stuff to blog !!!
Due to life getting in the way I have badly neglected my blogee :(

It's not all been doom and gloom though as I managed to fit in a trip to Disneyland Paris in February. We had a great time and DGS Jack had a ball this year as he can now walk/run... and LOVES Mickey Mouse......I wonder who he gets that from :D :D

I made this little book ( using my trusty BIA ) for Jack with photos of our trip to DLP last year, it isn't my usual style as it had to be quite simple and easy to follow. He LOVES it :D :D
Please excuse the photos they are a bit blurry, I was in a hurry to take them before dinner :D
