Glittery Gromit

You can now follow me on Bloglovin too!
Today there's a new challenge up at The Studio and it's all about using glitter on your layout.
A couple of weeks ago we took my nephew looking for the painted Gromit statues around Bristol and we found this lovely glittery one with mosaic tiles on so I thought it was prefect for this challenge! I went with the gold to match Gromit. I found some glitter stickers, thread, sequin waste glitter glue, gems and sequins and had a lovely glittery time!
I used shimmer mist for my background too so everything on this layout shines!! Unfortunately I didn't have any glittery gold Thickers so I just had to use shiny gold ones instead!
If you join in with us at The Studio this month you can be in with a chance of becoming our guest designer. We will also be having a design team call next week ;0)
It's been a busy week with my nephews birthday, I made him an Avengers cake and went to Longleat Safari park with him for the day. I'll be back with the cake photos soon!!
Thanks for looking! xx

Multiple photos

It all went a bit quiet in here, don't know why really, life just got in the way! Lots of things have been going on, including going to Wembley to see Robbie (my mum won tickets, amazing!) My baby nephews keeping my busy, being ill and being on holiday (just got back from Spain, lovely but a bit too hot!) 
Anyway lots to catch up on and lots to show you so I get some posts lined up!

On to today as there is a new challenge up at The Studio. By the way I now run The Studio so that's another thing that's keeping me busy! Today's challenge was to use 3 or more photos on your layout. I love using more that one photo on my layouts, I use 1, 2 or 3 photos easily so I thought I would try more this time! Sometimes I find you can't tell enough of the story with 1 photo. I used a gird of 6 photos this time, from a day trip to Devon as I had lots of lovely photos to choose from!
I used some blue watercolour for the background to look like the sea, doesn't show up very well in photos! I then clustered some embellishments, stamps, mist, buttons and gems etc, I really love clustering on layouts!
If you join in with us this month at The Studio, you could be in with a chance to be our guest designer for a month!

Thanks for stopping by, back soon! xx
