The last of my DT makes for Simply Create.

Hi everyone, I've been trying to upload these pics on the DT blog at Simply Create for ages and nasty old blogger wouldn't let me. Came over here and they loaded no bother....Grrr. I made these on Friday evening as I was going to Simply Create after work on Saturday to Kath's demo day. I knew that this sheet of DP was ideal for a layout but I've never done one before so I was a bit nervous. My original idea was pics of my grandkids. Then I changed my mind and decided to use pics of 2 of my kids. I knew what 2 photos I wanted to use but I could only find one of them and wasted nearly a whole day before giving up!

I couldn't find a decent photo of Poppy at Christmas but I had one that Catriona had given me ages ago. The trouble is it was a bit big compared to the other pics. So I took a photo of it, uploaded it to my laptop and printed all three.

I hope you can forgive my attempt at a layout. As you can see I'm not a scrapbooker lol!
The card and 2 scraplings are just simple and designed to show that you can make a simple card quite quickly if you have gorgeous materials. The sentiments are all Hero Arts and Jacqui has a fantastic selection of Hero Arts stamps. I'm not sure what to call the "image" on the scrapling on the left. Probably a flower I think. I cut one out with a nestie and then cut out the petals from another one and glued them on at the inside and popped them up on a foam pad at the outside edge for some dimension.

Jacqui has quite a lot of the DT's work on display at Simply Create now. If you've seen some of it on the blogs you will have seen how gorgeous it looks. I have to tell you that in real life it is even more gorgeous. The rest of the girls have made some stunning cards and other projects so if you live anywhere near it's definitely a good idea to pop in for some inspiration. Jacqui also has the cards that Kath made at her demo day yesterday and they are inspirational.

Well I'd best go and do my ironing now as I'm working full time for the next week. I've been baking today as I'm on teas at the WRI on Wednesday. I've had a couple of disasters so I think I'll need to bake again tomorrow night!
