I've Been Creative!

I've been taking full advantage of my lovely craft area and have managed lots of scrapping this weekend, it's been great.

I managed this layout for the weekly challenge on UKScrappers.  The challenge was to scrap baby, human, new things, use earth tones, include stars and the word who in the title.  I even managed to do some stash busting and use papers from my scrap bagP:
I drew a face on a box once and Maddie decided to put her head in the box and poke her hair out of the top!  The funny thing about this photo is that when people are looking through my photo album and come to this picture they always rub their hand over it because they think there's something stuck on it rather than a picture of Maddie with a box on her head.  I love making rosettes and normally score them every centimetre, this time I scored them every half a centimetre so they wouldn't be so bulky.  There's a bit of hidden journalling behind the photo because I really wanted to keep the layout nice and simple.

Today I also made my first ever batch of shortbread.  My friend got me a recipe calender for Christmas and I said I would cook the recipe for the month every month.  I cut it very fine this month and didn't even get a photo to share on here because it all disappeared so quickly!

Hope you've had a good weekend.
