well, have managed to squeeze in a few hours scrapping time over the last couple days and have put together 3 layouts for our holiday album.
This is the title page, and I'm especially chuffed with the postcard that I made in MS Publisher
I used some clipart for the stamp and recoloured it to a sepia tone, and inserted text boxes for all the other wording - tilting the "wish you were here" caption. I printed it out onto photo paper and used a postmark stamp from a baby set in brown ink across the stamp then embossed it with clear embossing powder for a raised effect.
And I have also put together 2 beach layouts - one featuring Faith and the other featuring Willow - I've kept them fairly simple.
I used some Cosmo Cricket papers as backgrounds - I got them free with a subscription I took out with Scrapbook Inspirations magazine, am not too keen on the patterned sides of the papers, but I really like the distressed look of the plainer sides.
Now with a bit of luck I might find some time to put together the 3rd beach layout of Graham and Scott
