Celine birthday challenge.

It is the birthday of my favourite scrapper Celine Navarro.... oh and it is also my uncle's 50th and my MIL's birthday too.... so HAPPY BIRTHDAY wishes all round. Celine has put a birthday challenge up on her blog to create a LO using products from American Crafts, Rouge De Garance and Prima. I had a bash at this last night and am really quite pleased with it. The photo was taken during Oliver's last week at private daycare... it wasn't a photo I ever intended to scrap, but no matter how many times the photo is stored away it crops up in the unlikeliest of places. Rob found it lurking somewhere the other day and asked why it was always lying around.... so I decided to scrap it so it would be lying around no more!!!
I used 3 RdG papers, 2 AC papers and 1 by Prima designs... which I love and definitely need more of. I also used a journal tag from Etsy, some MM chipboard buttons, some Love Elsie chipboard buttons and ribbon, and a couple of scraps of velvet wrapping paper... just because I love it. I also did a spot of doodling.

Rubbish photo... but I'm not going there... ok I am, Pentax contacted me this morning to say that the problem had been caused by an impact and therefore was not covered by warranty. The cost to repair the usb port will be £141.75 :o And they have me over a barrel, I have to pay it, or they will return the camera in its dismantled state. I am not a happy bunny. Anyway I will try and scan later if I find time... the tiler has just turned up so it's all systems go here.... again!!!

I am missing playing along with HS:MS so much, so i have decided to carry on playing... even though the pics won't be up to much for the next few days/weeks (it better not be the latter).

This blanket is Harry bears... it's the one that wraps around him when he goes in his buggy. Will blog visit later after my weigh in:)
