Guest Designer

Yosemite - Olmstead Point I was really excited a few weeks ago when Tamara from the Sketches! {by tamara} blog asked me to be a guest designer.  I have been using a lot of Tamara's sketches recently so I was thrilled to be asked.  Well today is the day - so check out her blog!

This is the layout I did - more photos from our holiday this summer and I have used bits from the last couple of studio calico kits.

Sisterly Fun

Sisterly Fun
I did this layout a couple of weeks ago but I have only just got around to uploading it.  Used Studio Calico kit and stamped around the edge with the stamp from the kit.  I used an old sketch from Tamara's blog.

On top of the world?

On top of the world  I did this layout this afternoon using last weeks sketch(74) on Tamara's blog.  I'm not keen on hidden journalling as it means taking the layouts out so I skipped that part but added some extra photos too.

More pictures from Yosemite this summer.

Sorry about the flash on the photo - it was dark by time I finished it!

Saturday's Crop

Tenaya Lake  Last Saturday was our local monthly crop.  We had lots of challenges and prizes to make it more exciting for Christmas and it was a really good productive day.

All my layouts are done with various bits from the last 3 studio calico kits that I had just thrown together into a box!

The first layout is of Katherine at Tenaya Lake in Yosemite where her and Graeme went for a swim.  Her comment afterwards was it was the best view she had ever had whilst swimming backstoke so I wanted to make sure I captured that memory.

Wisteria Lane

The second layout uses some photos taken at Universal Studios in the summer.  The houses are part of the set where Desperate Housewives is filmed .  The road is called Wisteria Lane in the series - hence the title.

Tigz & Barley 2 

The 3rd layout of the day is some recent photos of our cats.  This uses sketch 58 from the Sketches by Tamara blog.  The photo corners are made with some of the packaging from the prima flowers.

Chateau Marcay 2 

For my final layout it seemed a shame to waste the edge of the cutout from the previous layout so I used that as the starting point!  The photo is from a trip to France a while ago.

Birthday Card

Lisa Card  I made this birthday card today for one of Katherine's friends.  I used my cricut and design studio.

The design was lifted from a card done by the very talented Tracy Gough.

Old Faithful Geyser

Old Faithful  This layout is the first 6 x 12 layout that I have ever done.  It was inspired by this weeks sketch on the Sketches! {by Tamara} blog.

I used this months scrapagogo kit again and the photos are from our trip to California in the summer.

Advent Calendars

Advent Calendars On Sunday Becky and me made the advent calendar on the left.  Katherine wanted one too so I made the one on the right for her on Monday.  They are made from matchboxes and the instructions can be found on the Bubbly Funk website.
