Village Fete

I've finally got around to photographing some layouts. Happily, I have discovered a good spot with good light in our kitchen so hopefully, the quality of my photos will be improving from now on!

The first layout is using July's gogo kit and a photo I took of Max whilst we looked after him when Jake was in hospital. It was lovely spending so much quality time with him, even doing the everyday jobs like showering him, especially when he looked this cute all snuggled up in a big fluffy towel.
I went a bit flicky with some shimmer mists to 'dirty' things up a little and stop it being too pretty.
The second one is with the same kit and a photo of my niece Kerrie on her 21st a couple of weeks ago. I managed to get a totally different look with the kit on this one, much more pretty pretty.
I used lots of layering, scrunching, inking, stitching, embossing, punching and glossy accents to create loads of texture and interest.

Fab layouts, Beki! Loads of lovely layers and textures.. the gogo kit looks great fun to play with. Is that blue crepe paper in the top one? Looks nice and easy to ruffle up! :)

Thanks Sarah, they are the Jenni Bowlin crepe paper ribbons, but are just shaped crepe. I have been using Crepe paper on quite a few LO's recently and it's good cos it's cheap and works well for ruffling, scrunching, coluring etc xx
