Blowing In The Wind

Afternoon everyone. I hope you are not being blown away in this invigorating weather. I've just been out in the garden rescuing my tubs from hurtling across the garden. Still at least the sun is shining and the sky is blue.

Following on from my Scrapbook resolution last Wednesday, the beauty of the Bo Bunny papers are that they are double sided and both sides are utterly gorgeous and just have to be used so here is the Layout I did on the reverse of the page you saw on my Workdesk.

I'd bought these papers in anticipation of visiting Venice while we were in Italy, which unfortunately didn't happen this time due to unforeseen circumstances so I've used some pictures of the gorgeous painted buildings we found up in the Dolomites instead.

DD has also been busy crafting after being inspired by the wonderful workshop by Barbara Gray on Create and Craft the other Saturday. She was showing how to create scenes with a brayer but DD used a shaving brush to create hers and she intends to do four, one for each Season, but here are the three she's done so far.

Don't you just love those two birds chatting on the telephone wires?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your Monday has gone well and you stay safe in these winds.



A beautiful Layout Lisa (love the colours and papers), and some amazing brayering work from DD - she really is one talented young lady (obviously takes after her Mum)!

Enjoy the week - hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Hi Lisa, stunning LO, what gorgeous paper - I am so rubbish at using the other sides, I usually end up buying 2 pieces if I like it!! Never mind about Venice - you will get there and it will be worth it when you do - you know its my favourite place ever!! Gorgeous work from DD too - so pretty.
Am off on my next adventure on weds so will catch up with you soon, hugs xxx

Hi Lisa, love your scrapbook layout - the buildings in the photos are just beautiful and the DP and embellishments work together perfectly. Don't ask me why but it hadn't occured to me to scrap on both sides of these beautiful papers until C&C's Dawn Bibby suggested it recently - slow or what!! DDs landscapes are brilliant and the birds are so cute. Thanks for your kind comments about my altered drawers - much appreciated. The wind has been dreadful here today, it caused a powercut which lasted an hour or so - we nearly had to have cold cuts for tea :) Elizabeth x

Hi Lisa, The wind was bad enough down here in Notts and Jenna said it was somewhat 'brisk' in Harrogate too. Love your layout and what a lovely building.

Your daughter's cards are beautiful. She definitely has a talent doesn't she. I look forward to seeing the fourth card to complete the set.

Oh Lisa, I wish you would stop showing me pictures of Italy, it’s my favourite place to visit.
As I mentioned before I fell in love with lake Maggiore when I was in my teens and seeing your LO has reminded me that I was offered a winter job in a ski resort along with cousin there. I’ve not thought about that for years and I wonder where I would have been now if I had taken it.

Your LO is wonderful. The colours of the paper complement the picture perfectly and I’m sure you’ll find something suitable perfect when you do your Venice photos.

Happy Crafting!
