Some more layouts I made at the retreat, I was really pleased with what I managed to achieve but a bit of planning was involved. I decide on my photo's and then find the patterned papers. Once thats done I find some plain cardstock to match. Then comes the awkward bit I take far too many dies or punches just in case I fancy decorating with them and I have a collection of word stickers which I do go through to make sure they're revelant to what I'm scrapbooking.
The first picture is with two of my friends I met through blogging,we actually at the Lily of Valley shop, Still not sure of the flowers but it was from the set of pattern papers they all came from. The leaves from Simon Says Stamps

This is probably my favourite layout and I love that the odds and ends of the patterned pack make such a good design. You have now choice but use the scraps and no cutting into large pieces of pretty paper. Luckily my Sister brings her cricut which I used to cut the large letters. The hearts are from Simon Says Stamp. The little bit of journalling says " It's only when you lose someone you realise you don't have many photos of them. So you have to CHERISH the ones you do have."

This lay out is another favourite, I get to use the Paper Smooches paw prints die, I use the waste to help with placement of the toes. I did have problems with the title which was made up with various black chipboard and stickers since most of them had run out eeee's. I actually had to cut out the e out of a three but I got away with it because of using different fonts.
I only managed three pages to Hubby's book and one partially done but I've booked into an all day crop in a few weeks time and I plan to finish it.

  11. Debby, those are beautiful layouts remembering precious subjects. I know what you mean; I have very few photos of my dad who passed on over forty years ago when we weren't taking many photos. So what remains are very precious.

  12. These are wonderful layouts, Debby! I especially like the last one with the pawprints, doghouse and fence. Those are such perfect embellishments.

  15. Hi Debby,
    love your scrap book makes very much. Lovely photo of you and
    some bloging friends. I was myself to a crafting retreat we had
    arranged and we were 13 blog friends who met up in Birmingham
    a couple of weeks ago. We came from the south and North and even
    one lady flew over from Germany to come. It was a fabulous weekend.
    Take care, Maria x
