I'm struggling to find the time to blog at the moment its not that I haven't got things to show you! 
Anyway must show you this, a week last Sunday at The Studio it was all about numbers as its a year of big Birthdays in my family and three of have fallen in this month, including mine! The challenge happened to fall on my nephews first Birthday so my layout is about the day he was born a year ago. 
I used my numbers for his date of birth and weight, its a great challenge for using up those number Thickers that seem to hang around! I love how this layout turned out, it will make a great first page of my nephew scrapbook.
I'm late adding this layout as I was really poorly with such a nasty cold and didn't have a voice for a whole week but thankfully it finally seems to be better now!

As we are talking about numbers, this is the Birthday card I made my nephew on a similar theme to my layout!

 And this is the card I made my brother in law, I went a bit paint and ink crazy with a mixed media background!

Got to got now as I'm off to sunny Seville in Spain for 4 days with my sister as a Birthday treat later today, which is very exciting, I must finish packing!!

Snug as a Bug

I'm a bit late posting this one, but its been a busy time as it was my Birthday and I had a lot of celebrating to do!! Anyway there lots to tell so more on that another time!

We went all sketchy again over at The Studio on Sunday as it was time for another sketch challenge! Valerie created another lovely sketch, pop over to The Studio to take a look. I kept quite close to the sketch as the design went well with this photo of my nephew all wrapped up!
I punched out lots of different circle and distressed and inked them to make them stand out. I also distressed and inked the edge of the white background too.
I then added some ink drops and wooden stars to add a bit more interest.
There is lots of inspiration from my design team as always and if you join in with one of our 3 March challenges by 13th April you could be our guest designer!

Thanks for stopping by! xx
