This must be a record. I don't think I've ever scrapped a photo this quickly!! This is for the 123 Monthly Challenge for April - chipboard swirls/flourishes, gemstones and NO PAINT!! I'm sure Julie's got it in for me for contributing that one.....thanks Julie (mwah!!)
This is a tribute to Varna who's been just a god-send for about a year now. We both taught at St Laurence's (she's still there) and we just clicked. Same devilish sense of humour, same work/love/life ethic and same ability to knock over a few bottles of bubbly....only problem is - she LOVES Chardonnay and I HATE Chardonnay which makes choosing a bottle to share over dinner really interesting if you're eaves-dropping!! The staff at Liquorish used to chuckle more than once over our negotiations.
On closer inspection, Just about everything on the layout is old stash, except for the iron-ons and gem brads which were on BIG sale at Scrap City. Took me about an hour - okay, half an hour, to do all the Heidi Swapp iron-ons but will know better next time. I think Rachel Axton did something similar months ago in a mag (can't remember which) with the red boy ones and thought that was a great idea.
Here's to you V. xxx
ALSO...... won a prize for the 123 Monthly for March. Remember this layout?? From memory the criteria was black and white with one other colour, stitching and 3+photos. I really, really love bold coloured cardstock. Just brings layouts to LIFE!!
Nearly forgot about it because I've been a lazy blog-friend the last couple of weeks. The lovely Sonia at Forever Always is sending me a SURPRISE in the mail. Can't wait.
