Just look at all those flowers!! Well the flowers on the template became buttons, balls and paint splats on my layout which I made with photos of my grandson Tyler playing in the sand at Ruislip Lido:


He really enjoyed himself!!

My layout uses the first template in the pack and a beautiful photo taken by my husband. He really does takes such lovely photos of our garden.


My daughter has been knitting away and has finished a pram blanket for James:


She used some really soft double knitting yarn that she got from Hobbycraft. It is the Women's Institute Yarn in grey and teal. The photo does not do it justice. You can get a better idea of the colours from these links:

I've been busy as well and finished a cardigan for James:


It won't fit him for a few months but I am sure that he will look lovely in it.

Sweet Spring by Country Liv's Graphics

I made some layouts using the SWEET SPRING Packs by Country Liv's Graphics which you can find in her stores here:

http://scrapbird.com/country-livs-graphics-m-179.html
http://berryapplicious.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=44

Here are the previews of some of the packs:





The first layout uses a photo of me enjoying a cream tea while on holiday on the Isle of Wight last year:


The second uses a photo taken by my husband. He takes such lovely photos:


My third layout was created for the April 3-2-1 GO! Challenge at Scrapbird hosted by Country Liv's Graphics:




The brief for the challenge was:

This month we are going to be focusing on Ribbons & Bows, so we will ONLY and MUST use:

3 Different Ribbons/Bows
2 Papers
1 Journaling Card/Tag
(For this month’s challenge only, you may use as few or many photos as you want.)

Try your hand at making a frame(s) from your chosen ribbons or papers, spruce up that tag or card with items extracted from your paper or use one of your ribbon/bow choices; be brave and experiment. I have seen some awesome extracting and ideas for this challenge, so let's see how creative you can be with just these few items.

I used two background papers, one of which I also used for the tag to which I added the pansy border from one of the tags in the kit. I used a ribbon to make the border round the background. Another ribbon was added to the tag and the lace ribbon I used to make the frame (recoloured) for the photo.

Here is the layout that Liv made for the Challenge:


Liv used her VERY CHERRY MEGA which you can get in her stores here:


Here is the kit preview:


I'll be back soon with more layouts.

My layout uses the contribution from Brenian Designs - the SPRING ALIVE TEMPLATES which you can find in store here:

And here is my layout using photos of my grandsons riding their Thomas the Tank Engine Train in our back garden:


Tyler and his brother Corey have had such fun riding on this cute train and I am sure that James will be absolutely enthralled as well - when he is old enough.

It was Ian's birthday on Monday and I made his birthday card using a coverdisk that I got with a cardmaking magazine:


Doesn't it just make you want Summer to be here!!
