A quiet house

I've a lovely quiet week ahead of me, hubby is away in Bristol for the week and son is in Spain. So hopefully I will get some scrapping done

This one is for the weekly challenge on UKS - Inspiration was to be taken from a lovely bright sunny picture of a sunflower, a celebration, ribbon and tag. This is my sons fiance and my granddaughter at their engagement party. Abby asked if Helen was now her Aunty Helen. Papers are from the Sarah's Cards July kit - pebbles happy go lucky
This one I started at Holystone Crop on Saturday. Papers are Bo Bunny Gabrielle

I inked all the edges and used some of the noteworthy journal pages to go behind the photo. The swirl and some of the butterflys are from the Noteworthy packaging. The title is cut from the Paisley Cricut cartridge with glossy accents on and the flowers are from the Mothers Day Bouquet cartridge. Its finished off with a few dots of stickles around

I now need to start playing with my new kit from My Creative Scrapbook. Its packed with lovely papers and embellies and I just don't know where to start

Challenge LO's

I've yet again not blogged for a while but its the usual life gets in the way -- and I've had a fab holiday.
This LO was for last weeks challenge on UKS which I didn't manage to get uploaded in time. I'm concentrating on getting some of my oldest sons photos scrapped. He has always had gorgeous eyes and has been a flirt since he was born - nothings changed. I used June's Sarah's Cards kit for this one
This is my sketch and scrap LO and I think I used Mays kit. I was a bit of a rush job as I didn't have long to the deadline after coming back from holidays. Of course if I'd been more organised I would have done it before I went away. I'm determined not to leave it so late again and have already started this months

This is for this weeks challenge on UKS. I used a MS border punch around the edges, distressed the edges of the smaller papers and got the old embossing powders out for the flowers. I used the sketch from the DT booklet and inspiration from Claire's LO

Thanks for looking
