Page Plans ..........

put up the new template in time for me to make a birthday card which needs posting today! DH's step niece is 18 on Wednesday so this had to be done sharpish (cos I forgot) Anyway, this is the sketchand this is my take on it.


I don't know why the image has blurred because I scanned it! Anyhow, paper is Making Memories from years ago, paper frill is Doodlebug, the large numbers were cut by hand from glitter card and the sentiment was generated on the computer.

It is also a dear friend's birthday on Wednesday (but she's not 18 any more ;)) I love pink and yellow together, it shouts out Summer (probably the only one we'll have!) Image, paper and sentiment are all from Pink Petticoat and the flowers are Papermania and Prima. I found the pink and yellow brad in my tub but I'm not sure where it came from. I've added a couple of diamantes and a bit of Stickles glitter to her clothes.

I'm waiting for a couple of orders to come so I can begin my next wedding order so I thought I would do some scrapping. My brother will be 40 in October and I want to make him an album. Late last year I sat and scanned 240 photos brought up from my parents. They weren't all of Scott but I realised that I didn't have many photos of me as a child either so scanned as many as I could. The problem now is that it looks as though I didn't close the dvd when I finished adding them and have lost the bl**dy lot. I am well hacked off at the thought of having to start them all again! :( so later in the week, I will whizz over to mum and dad's and get some of the photos and start again. I managed to get the ones I wanted into one box so with a bit of luck they won't have touched them. All together, there were 5 large plastic storage boxes full!

I am now off to wash the kitchen floor as I still have my head up my bum :))

Back soon. xx

Oh I can't begin to think how gutted you must be over the photos and scans - that is just so galling. Love the cards - the pink and yellow works well together (I did one recently and was surprised how good the colours looked together)
