Productive Crop

I was at a crop yesterday organised through UK Scrappers and had a great day. I made two new layouts and am delighted with how they turned out.

The first one I made by scraplifting a layout that Sugar Almond from UKS had made. I really love her unique style, what a talent she has! Her gallery can be found here and is amazing. The layout I lifted my idea from can be found here.

I used Bazzill Bling cardstock which I painted onto using Adirondack daubers in three colours. The 3D snowflake is a tree decoration and the other snowflakes were cut on the Cricut and jazzed up with gemstones. I bought letters at the crop yesterday which were just perfect for the theme of the layout.
The photograph is of my youngest son Peter taken during the huge snowfall we had in March 2006.

I finished the second layout when I got home and it is my favourite out of all my layouts. I am so pleased with it that I think I will make a canvas based on the same design.

I used dark brown Bazzill cardstock as a background, the patterned papers are by Chatterbox, called Foyer Hearts. I covered the small chipboard heart and number 4 with Boho Chic Luscious Lace from the Urban Window Collection. I think the manufacturer is We R Memory Keepers. I painted the large chipboard heart with two shades of Adirondack paint daubers and tied ribbon round it. I found a clock charm in my stash that I felt was perfect to add to the "forever" theme and it also adds dimension. the scallop at the bottom was cut on the Cricut machine and the ribbons are from my ribbon collection (not sure of manufacturers).
The photograph is of Andrew and Peter and was taken in November 2007.
