Chocolate indulgence

On Saturday I went with my daughters to Westwicks cafe in Great Yarmouth. I had a chocolate indulgence!! (see pics below) I thought you might like to see them. The chocolate is so creeeaaaamy! delicious....
I think I'll have do a layout of these pictures to drool over!

Bye for now

This is the layout that I am entering into the March challenge for the out of the hat challenge site. The criteria for this was to use 3 different sizes of flower, chipboard and fabric. The fabric I used was used to make dresses for my daughters. But sadly they have outgrown them now. I love the fabric because its so bright and cheerful. The photo was taken at a children's farm near St Martensdijk in Holland, it was such a hot summery day - lovely!!

Morning everyone,
My daughter loves skating and often goes to a rollerskating disco. She saw some skates on the Internet that she liked and was very surprised when they arrived in the post. She couldn't stop looking at them. The main background photo I faded using photoshop and printed onto ordinary paper so its not as bright as the other photos. I used a sketch from Ingeborg's Scrapbooking for inspiration

Recycle card - a spoon full of Sugar

I made this card with recycled ribbon from a box of chocolates that I bought for my husband's birthday. When I was looking for chocolates I also looked at the packaging to see which box would also be useful for me!
I am entering this card into the Spoon full of sugar challenge - recycle

Hi everyone, this is a layout that I did of my son on the beach by the pier last year. His hair was quite long then. Obviously he was too cool too smile! I am particularly pleased with the green snakeskin effect. I used a mesh that covered satsumas as a mask and splodged green and yellow acrylic paint over it. Hope you like it.

Hi everyone, this is the latest of my old family photo layouts. Hope you like it.
