Friends and Family~

Hi girls,

Hubby and Son are out watching the football (they won't be happy Bunny's as Liverpool lost the cup 2-1. Glad I watched it at home, the language will be awful where they are!)

I have had loads of time to have a little play, and as Scrapbooking is my First Love! That's what I have been up to.
This latest Layout is made using the lovely sketch over at Purple Pumpkin (just love that blog name, do you, it's so funny!)
This photo was taken way back in 2004.
We took my Daughter's Best Friend Sarah (this is who the 21st card I made on Friday is for) on Holiday with us. We are really lucky to have a Centre Parks very close by (about an hour and half's drive away), and we went for a nice long weekend's break.
The swimming area is always a winner (the kids would stay in there all day if we let them!) and this photo was taken of them, sat at the side of one of the many pool area's.

I have used a number of different papers from my leftover stash for this layout, also some Kraft card, a sheet of Basic Grey cardstock in blue and I made a large circle from a sheet of Stampin' Up paper.
I decided to add some dimension to the blue cardstock background, so used some Dylusion Ink Spray through a  Cubist stencil.
I have made a couple of flowers using Tim Holtz Tatty Flower Die. The flower brad is by Do-Crafts and the stamp in the corner is a My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Stamp Set.
