Birthdays and Bunting

Happy St George's Day to you !

Today I am even more and decided this morning to join in with Victoria's Monthly Scrapbook Challenge at Blue Jelly Stampin.

The theme is 'Birthdays and Bunting' and I have used some photos from when Sophie was 7. She is a bit like the Queen and often celebrates her birthday over several days with various groups of friends/ family etc due to the actual date being 27th December ! With Isabel's birthday also in December I usually end up buying a handful of birthday cakes !

I have also decided to enter this page in the sketch challenge for Simply Stampin- not rushing on Friday this week, might even have time to do something else lol !

I have used chipboard to spell her name. Must confess I haven't used this before but was introduced to it at training with Jules.

Like the little 'shelf ' my journalling is sitting on ? I ran the wide ribbon through the Top Note die- how exciting is that ?!! A bit of clear nail polish prevents any fraying.

Sorry about the photos, they are a lot more vibrant IRL but I'm not going to complain about the sunshine.

I am amazing myself by how much I am enjoying Scrapbooking and have even got over my fear of orange ( I think I told you before, it stems from Hubby coming home with a signed,framed Wolves shirt and asking where he could hang it lol ! ).

More pages of my album filled and talking of orange - come on Wolves, they need to win today !!

Off to sit in the garden , have an eggstra (sorry ! ) special weekend x
