Scrapbook Magazine free papers ...

Sue and I decided the free papers in Issue 49 of Scrapbook magazine were too good to waste so, so in our efforts to once again get printed, we thought we would see how many items we could make from the free papers. We started off with six A4 pieces of Bo Bunny Paper. I managed to create
  1. Four  -  8x8 layouts
  2. Eleven  Christmas Cards
  3. Three  gift tags
  4. Two mini books One for cards the other for shopping and gifts
  5.  One Mini circle book
So all in all 21 different items from 6 pieces of A4 papers I took a group photo and some close ups One of my Layouts I am really proud of I did some doodling and doodled holly leaves and berries and coloured them in I am really pleased with how they turned out The LO was a trip to Liverpool last year doing some Christmas shopping 

Sue has her wonderful creation feature on her lovely blog, "didn't we do well "http://sue-bubbles.blogspot.com/  I really enjoyed using all these free papers which were really nice papers, I think maybe I should make of an effort to use the free papers from magazines.  Also it now means I am doing well making this years Christmas's cards I really love receiving handcrafted Christmas cards as well as making them.

Now to sit and see if we both get a mention in Scrapbook Magzine after all our efforts

Extra sparkles for Val for her appointment, thinking of you hun

Not  long now to my pain clinic appointment I really hope they can help and make my pain more manageable
