Something pretty...



I had time last night to go to my local crop and play - much appreciated time with friends and I managed a LO as well - using my 10 Days of Summer kit and the wonderful supply of punches on offer I had a really good dither before settling on a kraft background for my bright photo.

Shimelle would be ashamed of me choosing my papers according to the photo and not its mood (Explore module), but I'm not very good at this yet and the papers were dying to be used!

I did enjoy playing around with making embellishments from the range of things I had with me - i.e. not much, but the kit was so well put together that I could match things up perfectly. Abominable photo - I really must stop using DH's camera to photograph my LOs - I just can't seem to get them straight!

Coincidentally, the Counterfeit Blog kit inspiration for August is pink - so I'm on trend and will have to scour my collection to find the girly bits and do something outside my usual box. I'm sure photos won't be a problem as I have a daughter and 4 nieces for starters, and pink is always great with b&w photos. Hopefully this weekend will bring some time to get my kit collated.
