Happy Mail and Pink Paislee

Look what arrived at my door on Monday...

That definately cheered up a day which was filled with the hoover, bleach and hard labour, both at work and home.

Thanks Susanne for making my day.

Here is my LO for this months In Good Company.
SUPPLIES: Pink Paislee 'Butterfly Garden'
Pink Paislee Wood Veneers
Pink Paislee (Mist).a.bles
Studio Calico Mists - Pony, Green Gable
Papermania Capsule Collection Flowers

Yep, it's Pink Paislee this time and meant I had to use the paper which I had been
scared of saving for ages.  I adored the paper but as soon as I got it home, it was just too pretty to use.  I hate that half of my paper collection is like that! The good thing is that using the paper as the background requires little other embellishment so just a few flowers and butterflies and a bit of mist on the letters and we are done :)

The picture is from my graduation 13 years ago!!! imagine :s. It is the official picture and while I am not overly fond of it, the frame was decomposing a bit so I wanted to get it on a page.  I cut up the frame using the oval aperture and university emblem on the LO.  There isn't much journalling, just the date, place and degree as while I have plenty of stories to tell of the day, they didn't seem to fit the picture..although I may do a 6x12 page on the side for the journalling now I am talking about it....

Come and join in if you have any Pink Paislee papers you want to use up.  It's a great way to really use your stash.:)

And while I am here, I am going to join in with Jennifers Scrapbooking Soiree.  It's like a virtual party where everyone shares what they are up to with their scrapping and you have till the 7th August to join in. See you there?

  3. I'm glad your little something arrived safely - and I'm even gladder that you are scrapping along In Good Company. This is another great layout. I really like the oval - it seems an even more elegant shape than the circle - perfect for this page!

  4. Ooh, fab layout, I love the butterflies on top of the flowers. I should really go back and scrapbook some earlier photos of myself, perhaps once little miss starts school I might have time to do some of them!

    Thanks so much for joining in with my Scrapbooking Soiree! x
