Lots of scrapping

Well, after a bit of a drought on the scrapping front over the last few days,today has been very productive... it was the Eclectic Keepsakes monthly crop over at Marks Tey.
We spent the morning on our own projects,so I took the opportunity to do one more from Camp Scrap.I used some more of the Co ordinations cardstock as a base - this time a floral one...Well, all I can say is it does make a right old mess sanding it to reveal the core but it does look nice and what a good job I could just shake it outside the hall to get rid of the dust!
The next layout was one for the sketch challenge of the day which the two Karens had given us to work from.
I used some new Webster's pages for this one,loved sitting there snipping and cutting the little birdcage and other bits out.
Then in the afternoon it was on to the class of the day which was one designed by the lovely Laura Buckingham. I've always liked her style so it was good to do a page she had designed. The papers are Delovely and very vibrant and summery.

All in all a very good day indeed.-Oh and I did manage to get some photos  taken for Shimelle's class -ahem -the three random things ....two boys and a makeshift goal....or wicket..(think that might be three randomn things !) ...our poor runied lawn ...HOW many times have we asked /told them not to play cricket /football/bowling/ in the garden and still they wear the lawn out and use anything in sight as a goal ...this time, the garden refuse portable bucket thingy..and another prompt was only a campanula in our garden but I've made a start at least!..

Lovely pages! Was a good crop day wasn't it?
Had to smile at the picture of the boys in the garden - no matter how old they are, they still like a kick about in the garden!

Great layouts. This has been my most productive day since the beginning of Camp Scrap too. 3 down, and I'm not done yet.
