Most Angelic!


Well it is week 2 at the Swirldoos Design Team Challenge (yes - amazingly I managed to get through the first round!) 

The challenge this week is layering and whilst hunting for a photograph I found this one taken by my father in the mid 80s of my son (on the right) and his cousin, both aged around 7/8 years old.  It has always been a favourite photograph and I was really pleased about scrapping it, but of course I then had to go down the masculine route - no layering with flowers, lace, butterflies or fancy flourishes!

I am still working with the kit which came last week.  I added a few of my own papers and this lovely turqoise kraft core paper from the Nostalgic Collection.  It is No. 9 if anyone can tell me what colour that is - I have to keep buying another pad just to get another sheet!

I did a bit of wobbly (on purpose) stitching around the inner sheets, but unusually for me there is no inking in this piece at all.  So quite clean to put together.

I am having a few camera problems at the moment as my old point and click is sadly dying.  So the colours don't look so bright in the top photograph.  A new camera is on its way next week - I just hope I can cope with all the fancy menus!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and are enjoying some more settled weather. 

Thank you for looking x

Gorgeous LO jennie, love the photo and the Layout is lovely.

Unfortunatly we have had quite a bit of snow today!! I am not too worried as I just don't go out when it's like this, but my two children are off skiing tomorrow, just hope they can get to Manchester airport.
Have a nice weekend.
