Snuggle Up

So, this layout is the result of the second prompt in my online class, Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party.  We had to use patterned paper as our background ... so I did!

I love this picture and have done since it was taken, so much so that it is in a frame in our living room :)  Don't tell Jasper's three brothers, but I have always had a little bit of a soft spot for him - shhhhhhhh!  No special supplies were needed for the party, it is all to do with using up our existing stash, so that is exactly what this LO does - Basic Grey's Boxer papers, and whilst searching for appropriate papers I found some matching chipboard stickers!  Bingo!

I've had a bit of a crafty weekend this weekend.  Friday evening I went to my first Stampin' Up event (and yes, I spent loads!)  It was a fun evening where we all made 12 cards in 4 hours!  Not bad eh?!  Saturday was my lovely new friend and fellow crafter Daphne's birthday (we met at the new crop that we both attend) and she very kindly invited me to her house to celebrate.  We had such a lovely afternoon and she showed me her AMAZING craft room (stash/room envy or what?!)

Today I managed (after much paper shuffling, and cutting up brand new papers, only to change my mind and change to others) to complete a layout for the third prompt in my class.  Phew!

Not sure how much crafting will get done this week as it is half term ...

  1. This layout is really gorgeous, Carole, love the papers and the flower accent, and little Jasper is adorable - that bright hair is fantastic!!! Sounds like you're having a great weekend, lucky you! I just realized the kids get a week-long break, starting the 7th I think. I don't know what I'm going to do to stay sane! Hope you enjoy having the kids home even if you don't get much crafting done, hugs, Roxy.
