Oh well, at least I can share the layouts with you now! And I know that the important thing is that me and my family enjoy the layouts. It's just that as well as enjoying the layouts for myself I like to know that other's like them too - striving to improve my layouts is what I do to feel like I'm 'myself', as well as a mum and a housewife, if that makes sense.
Anyway, I'll stop babbling and show you the pages. I hope you don't mind me having this little rant on here! If you can spare a minute to leave me a comment, whether it's layout love or constructive criticism, I'd really appreciate it :-)
Layout 1: 'Your 1st Trip to London':
See the button and twine clasps? They both hide some 3D elements. If you're a regular reader of my blog you might remember this 3D mini that I made about how much I wanted to make a trip to London. I thought because the mini was 3D my layout about the trip should be too:
I'm glad that my daughter loves looking at the layout too because of these fun elements!
Layout 2: Sweet Dreams:
Complete with lots of handmade embellishments including a rocket-ship made from corrugated cardboard, and a cloud cut from felt and blanket stitched around the edge:
And one of my crochet flowers and a fimo button:
Layout 3: Autumn:
Including some leaves hand-cut from felt and embroidered with veins, layered up with skeleton leaves:
Thanks for taking the time to have a look. If anyone wants any more info on supplies or techniques used on any of the pages just let me know.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. I'll be back at some point over the next couple of days to let you know who won the giveaway! x
