Guess what my postie brought this morning???

My design team goodies..... and I have already had a play!!!

I decided to use the papers from the March Personal Shopper to do this LO. It was quite a challenge for me as I don't 'do purple/lilac', or so I thought...LOL!!!
I inked the edges of the background cardstock and gutted the middle... The red paper was cut to size, inked then stapled to the background. The lilac patterned paper was trimmed to size, and had the bottom corner rounded. I ripped the pattern from another sheet of paper and machine stitched it down the left hand side. I used a corner stamp to make the patterned square, and added alpha stickers to the centre. The word 'camera' was stamped on to the reverse of the spare card gutted from the background, and the remainder was used to mat the photo.
The journaling was hand written onto the lilac patterned paper then cut into individual words and inked.

This is one of those photos that needed to be scrapped... one of those everyday moments that would otherwise be forgotten, but now will be remembered and laughed about for year to come. My eldest DS has seen me turn the camera to take photos of us both when there has been nobody else around... and on this day he decided to take a photo of himself with his baby brother...kids eh, you gotta love 'em..... LOL!!!

I also had a play with the 'Let's make cards' products. This party invitation was made using only products supplied. The word party was handcut, and doodled stitching was added for added interest.

The second card (blank from £1 shop) used paper from the March personal Shopper kit as well. I handcut the frame and large heart, added the small heart shape, and stitched on a couple of buttons I found in my button pot... easy peasy, and so quick to do. Now there is no excuse for not making your own cards...
