What a weekend, Josh worked I scrapped on Saturday. I know owl's have been and gone but I've never used one on a layout before and I've had these collections one sitting on my desk for a while now waiting to be used. The paper is Scenic Route and the brads are from the Scrapbook City retreat I went on in 2007 I think there K&Co. What I really have fell in love with thanks to Carole is Bo Bunny double dot card stock this stuff is just lush. I had to go and get some and the only colours I could get were brown and green, hence the brown LO! lol!!
The layout below of Josh was a quick one that I did waiting for the washing to finish, I started it a week or so ago and pulled it back out to finish it off.

I mentioned in my last post a challenge LO that Katie had put up on Scrapbook City it was to use;
- Six patterned papers
- A photo taken that weekend of yours truly
- Journaling
- 'Me' as the title
- Bling

Below is what I came up with. The picture is taken out our local vine yard Gecko Valley. Isle 24 sine I'm the ripe old age of 24! lol!! The bling is the black rind stones there Prima I've had them for ages. As you can tell I'm still in my quest to use up some of my old stash.
I have been a little bad though spending a little last week on some of the new Christmas products being sold. I want to get in early this year again and make the 20+ cards I need to do.

All these layouts are gorgeous Lauren and I think the owl is a hoot, so cute, and I am loving all the butterflies, with those pretty gems.

Stunning.
