Two Lay Outs & Project Life week 7

Well hello, how are you all?
First of all i will start with my PL
Here is the LHS
A bit of a heart theme, it was Valentines Day during this week. Nothing super exciting just your everyday stuff but how good does that tuna look in its heart shape that Joe prepared at work?

Here's the RHS

which includes a not very good photo of a red back spider that we nearly sat on.
Even Caitlin's friends know that i scrapbook and like to have photos, so they are always posing/acting up for Caitlin, a good example is Caitlin's friend Nathan who always says "lets get some snaps for Linda". Here he is hanging of a street sign (i don't think he was 100per cent sober at the time).
The papers this week came from a 6x6 pad from My Minds Eye called "Love Me".

I also completed two lay outs to go with my PL

am super proud of this one. The scrapping is simple but i did a lot of digital work on the photo. Andrew didn't take a photo of the actual horses so i had to source this one, then i fiddled around in photoshop with masks and opacity, i printed the whole lot out on cardstock. I also made a little envelope (using the cricut) out of vellum as i wanted it to be kind of translucent. Love how it turned out

For the next LO i also had some fun in photoshop

i used one of their "create a page" features and it gave me this nice photo collage with vintage frames. I just printed it out on photo paper and cropped it, a bit of studio calico mist, some doily's, stickers and a wee bit of stamping and voila all finished.

Tonight i hope to play around with some cards and stamps and tomorrow after the ironing is done i am going to concentrate on cutting out all of my remaining blocks for the caravan quilt that the "Three of Us" are making.

thanks for stopping by

have a lovely Sunday

Beautiful layouts Linda, just love the fact that these little pieces of artwork provide snippets into your everyday life to look back upon in years to come *happy sigh* xxx

Love your PL and I just love how the whole family, and friends are getting involved, totally love it.
Layouts are super great and what a great thing you did with the racing memorabilia.
Love me :-)

What awesome LO's! Love the hearts and the doilies. I would love to do some pages like that but haven't had my scrapbooking out in 18 months ... Very sad but true.... I feel like getting it out requires too big a commitment of time but really that is just an excuse, I keep getting distracted by other projects! My goal for the new year was to learn to crochet and have been working on that, so that takes up those few free moments! I have no regrets though, just happy to do what I can and will get to the other stuff when I can.... Bring on school holidays!!!! Happy weekend! X
