A Fab Weekend

Hubby has gone on a fishing trip to France for a week so it was just me and the kids this weekend and we made the most of the weather! We went to Barleylands Farm and Craft Village in Billericay and I took loads of photos of them having fun. I use Picasa 3 for my photo editing and was having a play around with it and made this collage of the photos I took that day.


I may even use this for some quick scrapbook pages too and my youngest has taken it in to school for show and tell today.

It's my Mother-in-Law's birthday this week and I made this card from the boys to give to her with a lovely butterfly stamp that I bought from Hero Arts.


I stamped the image in blue ink onto a blue wash paper. I mounted it onto some navy card and then mounted this with 3d foam pads onto white linen cardstock. I then printed a digi paper for the background and mounted this onto navy cardstock.


I then embellished the butterfly with crystals and pearls.


Let me know what you think, its always good to hear your comments and suggestions. Have a great week!

Love the collage - very clever. Beautiul treatment of that butterfly image, really fragile and fresh looking.
