Doing the wrong things...for all the right reasons!

Welcome scrappers and bakers! Today I have something for everyone. Ha! Above is a layout using our one year anniversary pic (or rather pic from that weekend as we went away) This layout consists of two magpie moments - a coaster from a cafe in Bruges and a little booklet thing from the clothes shop Hollister that I used for an extra pic (of our wedding day a year ago from then) and the journalling. I used a triangle for the embellishments (thanks for the prompt Shimelle!) The second layout I completed in conjunction with National Scrapbooking day uses patterned paper for the backing paper. I blinged it up with plenty of buttons, brads and sequins. It didn't take long, but I think its quite effective. Lastly at the weekend I went to a baby shower. I made lemon cupcakes using the recipe from Hummingbird. They had lemon frosting which I tried to dye blue, but it looked more like grey. I prettied them up with homemade toppers and blue sprinkles. Any suggestions on good blue food colouring? An arial shot... That's all for now folks!


  1. Hiya Mel,
    I'm back in the land of blog - yippee, thanks for your comments, I've just realised that this is the first layout that I've featured in, it's a bit sad really but I am one of those people that hate having my photo taken [although I've got another layout to upload tomorrow and oddly I feature in that one too]
    I love your layouts and what a great idea to add things like a coaster - I'm going to have to try that. The cakes look great - I only wish I had your talent [I can back but I cant decorate]
    Have a great week - Ju xxx

  2. love your pages! the stripes and spots on your anniversary page and how you blinged up the second page, I love the different fonts and colours you used for the title too. your cupcakes look cute and the toppers are great! i'm still waiting for a chance to scrap all the easter pics! x

  3. I love the cupcake toppers and the polka dot borders of your page with the little hollister frame!!


I appreciate all of the comments - they fuel my blog. Thanks for visiting!
