Oh what a lovely sunny warm day it has been here. I have spent the afternoon pottering in the garden and have also cleaned the windows, that's bound to make it rain tomorrow for sure!!

Tonight I thought I would share with you one of my Scrapbook Layouts. I have been scrapbooking for the last 3 years and am totally obsessed with it. I love documenting little events that would otherwise be forgotten and never go out without my camera in my pocket, despite the groans from the family, although I think they have become used to being continually snapped. It also gives me lots of opportunity to try out all sorts of crafty techniques, there always seems to be something new to experiment with.

This layout was inspired by a beautiful bouquet of flowers my husband gave me for our last Wedding Anniversary. He rarely buys me flowers, so these were extra special and I took lots of photos to remind me of them and wanted to use as many as I could on this page. Because of this I decided to keep the rest of the layout quite simple.

The background paper is from the new Nonsense paper pack from WeRMemoryKeepers, one of my favourite at the minute. I used a strip of matching ribbon and then a wide strip of matching dotty paper from DCWV to put my title on, which was just coloured chipboard letters. To make this more interesting I tried Chesseholing, which is just punching different sized holes with the Crop O Dile. I decided to stick this strip on with foam squares to raise it up a bit so that you could see the punched holes better.

I used a Prima stamp for my journalling and date but didn't have any photo anchors in the right colour. In the end I stamped them using Kelly Panacci stamps & colorbox chalk inks and used glossy accents to make them shine.

I love how the colour combination came together. Although our Anniversary is in the Autumn the flowers were bright and light and just right for scrapping with the lovely spring papers.

Lovely! your colours go with the flowers beautifully. Seems we both have been thinking along the same theme!
