Scrapping - Summer Days





Yesterday I spent the day doing some scrapping which I haven't done for quite some day and rediscovered how much I really enjoy it despite the fact that it takes me ages to do one layout. I'm so pernickety and like everything to look just right before I stick it down. I'm my own worst enemy at times and need to speed up! Anyway, I completed this layout of Lewis enjoying the summer weather recently. He just loves to be out in the garden playing with his toys which incidentally take up most of the garden! He also loves riding on his bike at the moment and loves to go for long walks with mummy so that he can cycle which I don't mind because it is good exercise for me. I am really pleased with how this turned out and since it was my first one of the day it spurred me on to do more.

I used this week's sketch from pencil lines and the paper was from DCWV Paper stack 6 which I bought in WHSmith at the weekend in their sale. It has lots of gorgeous papers which is spurring me on to do more scrapping too. I printed the letters onto cardstock and cut them out and the stamp was from a download I purchased ages ago from Designer Digitals I think!

I had great plans to get lots of crafting done today but have only managed to colour some images instead as I have been watching the Michael Jackson memorial on iplayer for most of the afternoon as I missed it last night and desperately wanted to see it. I did manage to colour some images whilst I watched so I will try to get some cards made tonight.

Hi Lainy, long time no speaky I'm afraid, lovely to come and visit you and I hope all's well with you and the family. I love your scrapbooking, it's so bright and cheerful and I think the time you took getting everything just right was time well spent, it really shows. Gorgeous photo's and it was lovely to read about your walks with Lewis, reminded me of when mine were little and our walks except I would always end up carrying two small bikes home :D Chris xx
