opposites attract!

The last two pages I have done are certainly not similar in anyway. In fact I would say the styles are totally opposite!
I tend to try and do bold bright modern pages for my sons photos, whilst i am experimenting with shabby, vintage styles for mine and my daughters pics.
Here is the most recent i did of my son. The photos were actually taken in summer last year but they were snapped on my phone, and I have had a nightmare getting them onto the computer!


I have finally used this die cut sheet by Bo-Bunny, from the Flutter Butter range. I love it but have gotten it out many times but just couldn't find the right sketch, products or photos to go with it.
The title was made using Scenic Route chipboard letters, but I used the negative shapes as a stencil first to messily (is that a word?) paint the letters in brown paint, before gluing the chipboard letters on top, resulting in a sort of shadow effect.
And this page is my vintage style I am working on. I love the effect of having loads of flowers, vines, swirls and other embellishments all grouped together, but I do struggle with the placement of them all! Also, I don't actually have much of this sort of thing at the moment, but I am working on that!




This was one of many photos I took of myself recently, after changing my hair colour, again! I needed some up to date pics for blogs etc, so I thought i would have a quick photo session, as I am too photo shy to ask hubby to take the pics!

I found that this paper from Prima is already so detailed, it made the style look distressed and vintage before I had even added many embellies! Easy!

I am shortly going to be updating my blog, and promising myself (once again) that I will blog more regularly! So please do invite your friends to pop on over and take a look, I am really hoping to eventually find all of my 70 odd followers again that I had to my old blog! X
