Look what I've done !!

Last weekend I went to a brilliant place in Debden for a crafting weekend.  We had so much fun, good food, lots of laughter and time to do several scrapbooking pages.  I've been carrying on working may way through all the many half finished projects I started at my friend's Anita (Inky Blossom's blog) scrapping workshops held at my other friend Jill's (Cardinal Colours) shop.  So here are a few more:

This is a recent page that Anita showed us.  The flowers are pieces of gauze, cut in circles and then singed round a night light, very carefully!    We then stuck seed beeds in the centre.  Anita gave us a doilly and we used Cosmic Shimmer Mist (obtained from Jilly's Cardinal Colours shop) and sprayed through the doilly.  That made the negative and then we used the actual doily as an overlay.  We also used some of Anita's flourish stamps and she cut the title.  Isn't it effective?

Now this layout is an older one of Anita's and unfortunately I didn't keep a record of the name of the papers.  This time Anita got us to weave papers which are under the photograph.  We cut out the embellishment and there you go!!!

This is a more recent page and uses ribbon threading around the circle and we cut out the flowers and placed them around.  Again, very effective, isn't it?  Anita's a clever lady. 

For some reason my pictures aren't showing - but if you click on the little box the picture pops up.  Anyone know what I've done wrong please? xx

Addendum (!)  Been back in and pictures showed up fine.  I think Blogger was having a 'moody' day yesterday.  Thanks for the advice ladies. xx

Happy Birthday Jill and Anita!

Happy birthday Jill.  It was Jill's birthday on St Patrick's day but as I didn't see her I gave her her card at Debden this weekend. 

Here is the card I made for Jill.

I used the Jayne Netley Mayhew CD for the picture and the matting, Papermania Lemon Sorbet backing paper, flowers and ribbons and Craftwork Cards sentiment.

Here's Jill opening her presents and talking on the phone, like Lady Muck!!!

Because it was also Anita's birthday on Monday we decided to celebrate Jill's birthday on the Friday we were at Debden and Anita's a bit early on the Saturday. Any excuse for celebrations!

Happy Birthday Anita.  I hope you're having a lovely day today with your family.  This is the card I made for Anita's birthday.

I also used Jayne Netley Mayhew CD and backing paper with some of my own cardstock and the card candy and sentiment were from Craftwork Cards.

We had a lovely weekend at Debden, with lots of food, laughter and plenty of creativity.  Brilliant time.
