I did my first layout for weeks tonight – what a treat to have a Friday night at home! Last weekend I managed to get my paws on some of KaiserCraft’s new “The Looking Glass” collection and I’ve been hanging out all week to have a play!
I started out with a photo I wanted to scrap, but I ended up using a completely different one that matched the papers better…
More Tea! More Books!
Materials: KaiserCraft Looking Glass papers, kindy glitz, Typo twine, doily and newspaper, Glimmer Mist.
I started off raising the elements on the right – yeah, still hate fussy cutting, but unfortunately I love the effect! Then I ripped a photo mat out of some of the leftover paper and stuck some twine around it as a border, just with tape – I left a long tail on it and then glued it down to write a quote around. A bit of kindy glitz, some glimmer mist and voila! I love the quote around the string – “There is a certain happiness in being silly and ridiculous” – so true! As I said, I started off wanting to scrap a photo of my kittens, but it didn’t quite fit with the paper, so I went with this photo of my gorgeous friend Estelle and I at her hen’s party a few years ago now (scary how time flies!!) – it was an afternoon tea party, so it seemed to suit the Alice in Wonderland theme much more appropriately.
I did these next two layouts months ago, but since I was really happy with them, I wanted to get some decent photos to do them justice – so after three attempts, I’m giving up and going with some not-so-decent photos – sorry…
You & Me

How cute is this photo of Indiana? On one particularly cold night a few months ago I hadn’t seen her for a while, and when I haven’t seen her for a while I start to worry about what sort of mischief she’s getting up to, so I mounted a house-wide search. After looking everywhere, I came across her just like this – she’d decided it was just too cold and tucked herself up into bed – under the doona, head on the pillow. Awwwww!
I also just wanted to add a quick shout out to Megan of Megan’s Miscellaneous Menagerie for her lovely comment on my French Country Tray post – her blog’s really cool with some fantastic and inspirational stuff there!
