A Great Start to the Weekend

My Saturday has been a good one so far.  I woke up late for once, sorted lots of paper, re-read the Pretty Paper Party prompts, scrapped and even baked a cake and some cookies :) whew!

Here's where I'm at with the class so far:
I used a sketch from prompt one and some leftover Kaisercraft - Peechy Keen papers, die cut elements and Cosmo Cricket alphas.  How cute are the lamb and the calf having a little cuddle down at Brocketts Farm?!?!
The next layout I did was using old, old (almost antique because I bought them so long ago) papers.  I loved sorting through them all and there were many I'd forgotten I even had.
Maddie being cute on the beach at Weymouth in 2003.  I used a mixture of manufacturers on this page and really did some stash busting!
And I'm still loving making little embellishments.

I have to say that this class is one of the most inspirational I've ever taken and I've taken a few, I can tell you.

Now I'm off to play with more paper, glue, punches and paint.

I hope your weekend is off to a good start.

Hi Jo, Love both these layouts but the colours on the beach page are gorgeous!! Butterfly embellishments are very cute! I'm loving the class too, although due to a busy few days I'm still on prompt 2!!!

Love your choices of papers on both LOs....I've come to a bit of a halt too, as DH and DD are home for the weekend, but hope to get back on track on Monday!

I agree, its one of the best classes I've ever done. Both of those layouts are wonderful but I especially like the second one with the offset pieces. Really lovely. Oh and, erm, any cakes left? ;-)

That does sound like a good start to a Saturday! I'm loving this class too; I just counted up and I've made 25 layouts and a batch of cards in just 1 week!! Yours are looking lovely, hope you got plenty more scrapping time in over the weekend xx
