A Layout at Last

Afternoon folks. I've been busy in my craft room today with the radio on listening to all the fantastic weather around the country and feeling gloom as we have sat under cloud all day for the second day on the trot. Yesterday morning was fantastic but by 10am we were back in the cloud. If you've got the sunshine send a bit up North...pretty please!!!!

After all the sample making for Sheena's brilliant POW that lasted all of 4 days!! I had a pile of scraps from the gorgeous paper pad left so thought I'd use them up on a layout. I haven't scrapbooked for ages so really enjoyed creating this. The photo was from the retreat we went on up in Newcastle back in May and it brought back such happy memories.

Sheena kept whipping her camera out and Diane was insistent that she needed to put some lippy on before any photos were taken.

I stamped the background with some of the Oriental stamps and distressed the edges but everything else is from the lush paper pad.

Hopefully, fingers crossed I will be back tomorrow for WOYWW, I am having major withdrawal symptoms after missing it for months so I'll see you there.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Tuesday evening.

This is a great page layout Lisa and a really good use of the left over papers.
I really hope we can all get together at some point as it would be lovely to meet everyone.

Love it!!! What great colours Lisa! It's so nice to scrapbook a happy memory isn't it.

Is been a bit dull here, with a few sunny intervals. How's the garden? I cut down my raspberry canes today, I seem to get a better crop if I cut the old stems now. I haven't got many flowers in bloom at the moment though. I have got a great apple/pear crop though!

Lovely layout, Lisa. Those papers are beautiful and so appropriate that you have used them for a photo taken at the workshop too. The weather has been decidedly yuck here too - fine drizzle for much of the day and cloudy too. Oddly, it's warm despite that. Hope tomorrow is better. Elizabeth xx

Great LO Lisa of what seems to have been a great trip. Not joining in today as I'll be travelling South to see Dlores for some crafty fun.
the little newbie and family are doing so well and I can't wait to visit, Thanks for your message.

Apart from is being a great photo of some Inkoids - it's a fab layout too. Love how you've made flowers from the coin stamps, and the lantern string across the top it a great embellishment.
