Finally finished....

This is last Thursday's Layout from my Scrapbooking Class at the Craft Den. It has took me 5 days to find the time to put the finishing touches on! I just don't know where the weekends go.....
I wanted to merge some of the title into the lovely Prima paper we used....Im not sure if it worked but the thought was there! I used paper from the White Wash range for the title and it is sanded back to show more colour.
The pictures are taken by the river in Bakewell Derbyshire last summer, of my twin sister, Rachel and her daughter, Isabel.

Back to Scrapbooking.....

It was really good to return to the scrapbooking classes at the Craft Den, lots of fun and chat too! We use some pretty paper by Prima and added some lovely punched flowers.

My finishing sentiments are from My Minds Eye and a Cricut number 2, happy birthday Isabel....

Holiday crafting...

Here are my sewing projects from my holiday. I couldn't post more than one picure on Blogger earlier this week. I enjoyed making the small scrip bag from a pattern by Jennie Rayment. The bag is gather at the top so it looks smaller that it really is! As always I didn't take the right fabric but my good friend Norma, shared her fabric with me, I love the cute stars and moons!
I had great fun planning a quilt for my Superking size bed at home. The fabric is by Amy Butler, which I bought a while ago. I hadn't really estimated how much fabric I would need. I'm a bad planner but Norma is so organised and was happy to help, we were planning the quilt together over tea and scones . It was lovely because I got to go out and buy more fabric . I added two polka dot fabrics to complement the fabric I already had. The picture shows the quilt laid out on my bed at home it is in 4 large sections ready for me to quilt. Knowing me that will be on next year's holiday!
I also finished my Niece Isabel's quilt which I will post later this week. I need to take a better photo now it's totally finished! I can't wait for next year, it is just so nice to know you have a whole week with friends to craft!
