We had a great time in Brazil, we spent two weeks with my family and I managed squeeze a visit to a beautiful baby girl who was recently adopted by friends of ours. I haven't created much since we arrived on Saturday but I am going to share a couple of layouts I finished a while ago but haven't posted yet.
I had an idea of creating a background with the numbers stamps; it didn't quite work as I had envisaged, I might try it again. I found a use for my Promarkers - to make borders around my layout. With a ruler and the thicker end of the markers it can be done easily.
And this is the may 2011 layout; this was one layout which wasn't going to have a birder. Until I discovered that I had previous cut a strip of the patterned paper for something else. I was inspired by something I saw in Living Etc for this layout.
Something was missing so I dig the "remember this moment" stamp and stamped twice diagonally. Somehow it made the whole thing look better.
I was totally surprised and honoured when Nicole Mullen asked me if I wanted to be featured in the 3rd issue of Crafting Ireland. Thank you!
