Sunshine on a Rainy Day!

Hello friends
Is it raining where you are?
A scorching week here and then rain for the weekend - not fair!

To brighten up today I'm sharing a beach theme scrapbook page that I designed for
this month's cover of Scrapbook Magazine.
The photo was provided and the papers come free with the magazine.
 I used 3D Foam Pennants for the bunting and Classic Edges One for the scallop edging.
I mixed and matched the pattern papers and they amazingly blended well together!
Double matting the photo lifts it from the page.
Sometimes experimenting works.

Here is how it looks on the magazine cover....

Kittens are still lively and then they sleep...

More Celebra'tion dies have arrived and are in stock here.
The Pierced Ovals, Squares, Circles and Rectangles fly out the door...
they are really nice!

  Hope you are having a good weekend, today is Melt Pot Floral Fusion classes 
in the shop - photos to follow!

Take care friends.

Good morning Christine,

Good morning Christine
A lovely sunny scrapbook page today. The sun isn't exactly shining here today but at least it isn't raining (yet).
The kittens look adorable.
Enjoy your day with your melt pot.

Hi Christine. Great bright and cheerful page. Makes me want to go to the beach : ) I will have to remember about double matting, thanks for that tip. Enjoy the Melt Pot Floral Fusion classes everyone on them : ) Lily and Pixel certainly look very relaxed, I wish I could sleep like that : )
Have a good day. Take care.

HI Christine, gorgeous scrapbook page and keep those kitty photos coming (and Bella of course) because they are so cute! I have the squares and rectangles, which I find so useful, they make matting and layering look so much better..I need the circles and ovals now! It rained here quite heavily yesterday so we decided not to go the the Country show...went into Bristol instead and it turned out very hot! Today is lovely but we have other commitments so can't go today...darn! Hugs Carole ZX

Afternoon Christine, I have just finished watching some fabulous 'nail biting' tennis with the Mens' Final, and now to see your fabulous piccies of layout and new dies, and the especially fabulous piccie of the kitties, what a fantastic day this has been.
I hope the meltpot class went well.
We have had sunshine this weekend, I have spent most of the weekend gardening, my back is complaining now haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Nice and sunny in West Wales, should have been out gardening, but the tennis took priority today!
Love the summery scrapbook page, it has an almost retro look about it. Great picture of the kittens, they seemed to have settled in well. Hope the class went well. Anne x

Beautiful page Christine. Sunshine and rain just about sums it up in my part of Kent! Your kittens are adorable and the pierced dies could be a temptation.
