Back to Scrapping

Today was Cheadle crop day and it felt so good to get back to scrapping. I haven't felt like scrapping much just lately, but today I got 2 LOs done... so hopefully I may have found my mojo again. I now have 4 cjs in my possession which I am planning to get done and passed on this week... I am, I am, I am! No, really I am! You don't believe me do you...LOL!!!
Watch out Monika... they will be landing on your door mat soon... ready for you to scrap between night feeds ;)
The LOs I scrapped today were made up mainly from the April Scarlet Lime kit. The fifth kit in our subscription, and another bag crammed full of beautifulness... if you are looking for a kit that is good value for money, you will not be disappointed with this one, and if you are interested we have a place in the sub starting with the June kit. Send me an email if you are interested or a PM on UKS and I will let you know the details.
The first LO is of Harry about to poke his finger into Rex the hamster's cage. he does it most days, even though we tell him not to, and most days he gets bitten by Rex. Yesterday the camera was to hand and I got this shot... before you start thinking I am a cruel mummy taking a photo whilst my baby gets savaged by the pet rodent... I was telling him 'no' whilst snapping away... LOL!!!
I loooooooove the flowers that came in the kit... they are made uo with layers of fabric and paper and held together with a brad, simple but effective, and really touchy feely. The only things I added not from the kit was the lace cardstock and the Bazzill edges which were from Sarahscards... looooove this shop... perhaps a little too much when I am supposed to be on a stash diet *oops*
The second LO was using photos of Harry taken on the same day. I went to hang the washing out and Harry followed. I kept telling him to stay of the grass because it was wet. Not one to be told what to do, he crawled down the lawn, then along the bottom of the lawn to get to the sandpit, on his hands and feet. When he got to the sandpit he sat and clapped his hands in a 'look mum, no wet jeans' kind of way! That boy is just too darn cheeky for his own good!
This LO was based on this sketch by the lovely Jems over at Scrapbook Star. To the SL kit I added chipboard alphas from Sarahscards... painted with crackle glaze, also from Sarah, the background paper was also from Sarah although not purchased today! and a Hambly overlay from I don't know where! The yellow panel is the gorgeous packaging from the rub-ons in the kit... it actually has very subtle flowers on it and you just couldn't let something so lush get thrown in the bin.
OMG!!! This post has taken me over 2 hours to type! I have been distracted by Britain's Got Talent, and now Phoenix Nights... the latter being due to a rather lovely bottle of Rioja... can't beat a bit of Peter Kay when you have had a slurp!

Right off to blog hop, then to bed before the builder knocks on at 10 am to finish the brickwork on the garage!

Great layouts :D Love the arrangement of buttons on the first one and the 'grassy' letters on the 2nd.

Think I need to come to the crop soon if only for a nosey through Sarah's stash shop!

Great LOs Lou :) I may be ahead in the A-Z stakes but you're keeping up better with Jems LOs.
