I've done some layouts. :)

Well today Mark took the kids to the park for a few hours. As I was on top of the housework decided to do some scrapping. :) Haven't actually done much lately as been doing either projects for other people or making mini books, so was pleased to get some scrapping done. :)
Cameron made me laugh this morning. At Christmas my gran bought him a Thomas dress up tabard. Which Cameron hated and has sat in his wardrobe ever since.Well this morning he insisted he had to wear it. No idea where this desperation came from but fair enough. lol. It's a fat controller type hat he has on with it, though looks more like a Russian hat in the photo for some reason.

Now onto layouts. :) this one was done using a old Sarahs cards kit, from November I think, as I'm trying to use up my old kits. Doing well so far. :) Photo was from Butlins last year.

This was for the UKs week one July challenge. Rules were:
Use the sketch provided - done
Use 7 things - Used 7 journaling stickers.
Use a photo of someone being lazy - Cameron lying over the table on the train.
It was also asked to use a stamping/sewing technique but forgot about that. lol

This lo was for the house challenge, which I've never done before so was a bit of a change. Was a big challenge as the rules were to use 7 photos to show a snapshot of family life and use a technique you've never used before. For the technique I decided to distress the main photo. Which I've never done before as been too scared. lol. Quite pleased with the result, gonna give it to my gran I think. :)

This was done for week two of the UKS challenge. Rules were:
Bright colours = done
TV or film title = well kinda, lol, it will be a film, just in production at the moment. lol
Flowers = done
Buttons = done. :)
These are photos from our favourite place in Greece, Tolon. We've been a few times not and its such a quiet peaceful place, but a great base to go to Athens, Olympia and all the big places. I was there the year Greece won the Eruo cup and it was amazing! There were people coming out of bars handing out bottles of champagne and everything. Also loved diving there, such clear waters and fish swimming around you. Sorry, went on a bit there. lol

This was to use up some of my scraps. I've blogged this photo before, Caitlin was sitting watchign tv when I took a photo. As you can see she was very impressed and stuck her cup in front of her face to stop me taking anymore. lol.

Well planning on watching a film with hubby tonight and kids are still up, so better rung and get them to bed!
