Gathering Momentum

A days scrapping has finally kick started my mojo and I've managed to produce three layouts that I was really happy with.

Firstly this one for the Sarah's Cards January sketch challenge. Quite a story behind the title which I am going to attach to the back of the layout. My sister took me for a walk in my pram on the beach just after this photo was taken, unfortunately I was not strapped in so when she hit a hole that someone had dug in the sand, I ended up on my face in the sand!!!!
I did some really fine cutting which was worth the effort in the end!!
Of course no layout of mine is complete without some liquid pearls and glossy accents!!!
This next one is using my Jan kit, this picture of me and Jake was taken at Pizza Hut, the waitress tripped while bringing our food out and dumped a plate full of chicken nuggets, chips and ketchup into my handbag!!!!
I was soooo pleased with the little knife, fork and spoon, I had to make myself use it as it was so sweet that I just wanted to look at it!! But boy am I glad I did!! I used silver embossing powder and UTEE and then pressed a swirly pattern into the handles....I am in love, I need more of them!!
This layout was inspired by Pencil Lines sketch 170. More of my Be Loved papers and one of our Christmas photo shoot pics....
Used some clear buttons that were a bargain in the ATDML sale, added some matching paper behind with some glossy accents and 'voila!' perfectly matching buttons!
And finally a layout I did yesterday. These lucious AC papers gave me a hankering to do a really clean, crisp I did!! Also used a few embellies from some old kits.
So all in all a productive couple of days, even though I haven't been very well. What will I manage when I'm better?!!!
