Wednesday Words

Wow! Look at March week 3's sketch at Let's Get Sketchy! So much going on and so out of my comfort zone! But curiously I loved it straight away and was excited to get scrapping.

And it was perfect for this page. Now I don't often get to scrap girly themed pages so this was an absolute treat and I so enjoyed creating, what is for me, an extremely heavily embellished page. And with flowers! And with purple! I was in heaven! Such a joy!

This is Vic's first ever Mother's Day - here in the UK it's in March. And Andrew wanted to make it special for her, so both grannies were invited and he cooked his first ever Sunday roast. I'll be making a separate page about that with loads of journalling, but I was so proud of him that I thought it deserved a mention here.

Look at all the flowers and flourishes! These flowers have been hiding in my stash for ever. I made them years ago when I was very into exploding boxes and couldn't bear to throw them away once that phase was over - see hoarding does eventually have a purpose!

I didn't have any purple alphas, so I die cut my title letters from the same paper as the three journalling strips. And then I found these tiny stickers to add magic underneath.

Papers: KN, Hip-hip-hooray; LOTV, NitWits; ep, Winter Wishes
Alphas: Szzix, Vintage Market; stickers from my stash
Stamps: SU, Gorgeous Grunge; Clearly Besotted, Sunburst; Inkylicious, Some Moments; swirl from my stash; AC, Dear Lizzy date stamp
Inks: SU, wisteria wonder, marina mist
Punches: Matha Stewart daisy & butterfly, Tonic studio, butterfly; Dovrcraft, daisy; Ppaper Shapers, swirl
Embellishments: Scrap 365, wooden shapes; Ppaermanis, adhesive stones
So pleased you stopped by my blog today, thank you.

And keep crafting!
