Hello Everybody!

Well, I think it's about time, don't you?  Not blogged for ages, what with one thing and another.  Had so much on and just never found the time.

Anyway, myself and one of my lovely local downlines, Sara and her downline, Jan, are doing a mini blog hop showcasing layouts done of photographs taken at Convention and here's mine!

I decided to do the photograph in black and white as I know Jan loves these Lap of Luxury papers and everytime I see them I now think of her!

I love making the flowers - they remind me of an anemone or water lily.  These are made by punching lots of baubles with the bauble punch (approximately 15) and them sticking them around a scallop circle. They're dead easy but very effective I think.

As for the Pearls and Rhinestones - I just can't get enough of them! I love a bit of bling on my stuff!

Anyway, I know Jan and Sara both have gorgeous layouts to show, so here's a link to Sara's beautiful blog and her layout.

Bye for now, and I won't leave it as long next time, I promise!

ETA: Thanks everyone for the lovely comments, especially about my flower.  This is not my idea, I can't remember exactly where I first saw it, but we had a wonderful demonstration of it from Julie Kettlewell at Convention too! I just wanted to say that. There's no way I'm clever enough to come up with an idea like that! LOL!

Fabulous colour combo and so lush with all the pearls and brads. My favourite though is the waterlily flower - gorgeous!
