Based on a Heinz Baked bean can, pictures of DS growing up, done for the UKscrappers weekly challenge.This LO is from a mixture of freebie kits off the web Jennifer Pebbles provided the frame, the papers are from kevin and amanda's spring kit, the trees and birds and flowers are from Lori Musser - a whimsical mothers day, letters are from shabby princess dinner party and the arrows from the porch awning set. The red apple bits are by Danielle Thompson, and pink flowers from the MSA wildflower kit by Holly designs - I hope that covers everyone - all beautiful kits. Lots of layering in Paintshop pro - my computer did complain that it was running out of memory! Really enjoyed all these freebie bits - it has been great fun, and I think it is getting easier, though taking me longer!

So playing a bit more with the digi thing...now I am not near computers for a living the whole thing feels a lot more appealing. I tried out this one in paintshop pro 7...had used it a long while ago and not really played with it that much recently - took me a little while to get going and remind myself about mastering the layers! I found this beautiful kit C Stephens Spontaneous delight from Shabby Princess, the alpha was from the dinner party kit on that site, the butterflies from the MSA wildflower kit - all freebies and lovely.
My DH took this photo - I love Kew gardens...been going since I was a child, maybe only a couple of times a year but the open space and plants and hot houses....picnics in the summer - it is just gorgeous and definately a place I would recommend a visit to.
Quite enjoying the digi thing, though want to play around with some more paper pages too!

I found some great digi kits on the web, and this is one of my creations with it! The bits I used are from the Shabby princess - the ribbon, and flowers, and black and white pape rkevin and amanda spring mini kit - the red paper, and heart button and teal ribbon, and teal paper and glitterific swirls found at the digital scrapbook place.

This is my latest My Little Shoebox creation. It was using the Who's Who papers - I cut around the swirls and birds with my craft knife (yep it did take a while :)), added some glitter and buttons (from the early learning centre), then cuttled my title using the Olivia alphabet. I gave a little bit of dimension to some of the flowers with foam pads. I also made my own journal circle from the papers...and hand scalloped the edge - which would be why it is not quite even! I love this picture of my Mum and all her grandchildren...so far taken in their garden.
