"wow!!! love the colours, the layers...and the misting is wow!!!!"

If you could email me (makeandcreate@ hotmail.com) with your address and your choice of colours you would like your embellishment pack in I will put it in the post to you!

Sunday's layout challenge at The Studio was to scrap your age. Here's the layout I made for it:

I liked doing this challenge as I don't scrap about myself enough really I always think there's other people to scrap about before myself! It was even difficult to find a nice recently photo of myself as I'm always the one behind the camera!! So I did a mini photo shoot with myself to get the photo!

I used a gorgeous bit of lace cardstock to mist over with yellow and pink shimmer mists, I love the way the two colours mix on the page so it looks orange in places! I used a Precocious Paper pink satin flower as the main embellishment I just added some gems in the centre to give it a bit of sparkle! I thought it didn't need much more embellishment as the background looked so pretty!

I had a busy weekend my sister and brother-in law were down for the weekend as we had a big family tea party for my Nan who is 90 today! I baked the cupcakes for it!
My Nan wasn't sure she wanted a party, if you can't celebrate being 90 when can you! She really enjoyed it in the end though and loved having all her family around her. My aunt made and decorated the cake, my nephew looks really to pounce on it!!
March's new kit was added to my shop yesterday it's called 'Welcome Home' you can see it here.

I'll be back soon.
Thanks for looking! xx
