Some scrapbooking and some tangerine loveliness from Christine ....

I have been spending some time this weekend updating some photo albums and posting some of them in my sidebar to enable easier searching through my past creations. In the process I came across some layouts that I haven't shared on my blog, so here they are!

This one was of our summer holiday at Tootgarook last year. The picture opens out to include some more photos and lots of journaling.

This next one is a snapshot of three different days at the same church, St Andrews Uniting Church in St Georges Terrace Perth. The top photo is my Mum and Dad and after their wedding in 1954. The second photo is my sister Debbie and my Dad at her wedding in 1976, and the bottom photo is my own wedding in March 1997.

This one is for my All About Me album, and is just a little story about how I NEED my me time, and peace and quiet.

Wk 4 Shhhhhhh 

My lovely friend (and now Stampin' Up! downline) Christine popped over Saturday and made me laugh and rescued me with a desperately needed craft supply. She bought some of here creations with her which NEARLY make me love orange! Aren't her cards gorgeous? Just love the combination of the Old Olive stems and Kiwi Kiss reeds in this Inspired by Nature card. It really shows the depth don't you think?

There's also this lovely Choc Chip, Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss Fifth Avenue Floral card.

Christine has been lucky enough to recently score a custom built craft room (sooooooo jealous) so if you are in the Mt Evelyn area, give her a call. Christine can be contacted via her blog.

Be back soon, have a happy and creative week and don't forget to check out my updated galleries. Yes I am now very aware I need to make more baby, kids and male cards. I think I have enough floral ones to last me a few years!!

Claire, I love your layouts, and that you are sharing them with the world. The Notebook DSP was perfect for the beach photos; fantastic idea with the wedding photos (how special to capture them all together); and your introspective page is just beautiful. Thanks for your kind words about my decidedly ORANGE cards, my friend!
