Loadsa Layouts

You'll all be pleased to know that my holiday was a creative one. It was only a short break but I managed to fit in a few crafty hours (esp when raining!) and got 3 12x12's and 3 8.5x11's.

The first one is a bit of a scraplift of one of Sarah Youde's girly layouts from Issue 48 of The Scrapbook Magazine. I used Autumn Leaves Heather Bailey collection.
A mixture of homemade and bought flower embellies.
I forgot my ribbon bag so improvised a bow using Pink Paislee Artisan tape. These are the smallest rose buds I have ever made and boy were they fiddly!
I love this photo of my cousin Will, isn't it just what a baby should look like? All round and squidgy and big eyes! I used Echo Park Sweet Summertime.
Love the juicy rainbow colours and am proud of myself for using a flower on a boy layout!
This one is a simple but effective. I won these papers and probably wouldn't have chosen them but I thought they were quite 70's and would suit these photos of my family pre-me!
Another inspired by Sarah Youde's article in Issue 48. I just thought the way she used border punches to make a background was totally inspired and had to have a go.
Finally another simple one using AC Abode. My nephews call my Mum Polly Pocket cos she is tiny and they all tower over her! Bless.
So there you go. There is one more but I'll share that seperately xxx

Gorgeous layouts. The two you chose to lift were my two favs from that article too.
