Look who turned 1!!
Where did the 2 weeks go since I last posted??In fact where did the last year go?? I cant believe our little princess turned 1 already! EEK!
We celebrated with a little family get together and a pink butterfly cake - well it had to be pink didnt it really! lol Nothing special really as she was absolutely loading with cold and a trip to the doctors on her birthday afternoon didnt put her in a good mood for a 'party' - you bet Im glad i didnt go the whole banners and skywriting route! lol
I held another all day class at The Scrapbook Shop in Durham last Saturday :) We all had a fab time again and they all went home happy (I hope!!) lol The next one is booked in for the 21st of May and isnt up on the site yet but they can take bookings over the phone so reserve your place :)
This time we did 3 layouts with lots of detail....you can do straight forward layouts at home so I want to give you something to make you work! lol
This one was where they made each stamped 'brad' by glossy accenting and glittering a 3/4inch circle - 45 of them in total! These were placed in each scallop of the already printed paper (this was a sheet of Christmas paper and i wanted to show you can use them all year round)
The A. R and T were templates from the door project we also made during the day using decopatch - CREATE - in pinks, whites and golds to display on a craft room door or wall :)
This one I showed how to make the curled roses....I believe everyone is now covering everything in curled roses!! lol
A little touch of the upcoming celebrations - this took me an eon to work out and I know its not completely correct in the design but it works for me and is meant to be a shabby chic vintage version of the Union Jack - complete with wobby bits and handcut feel!
I still have photographs to add to mine, of course theres the little princess birthday photographs to add and there will be photographs taken of the boys when they have their 'Royal Wedding' lunch at school on their return - crowns included of course! ;)
