was busey scrapbooking yesterday, and wonted to use circles in my lo, im loving circle lo's at the mo. i used my chocolate papers and a vintage text paper, which i think works quite well togeather. i used my fiskars circle template, to do this page. the lettering were die cut letters, in my book, scrapbooking. i cut out a wavey shape from the black patterned paper, then stuck that on to the vintage text paper. stuck that to the page. added the photo's of mum and my two nieces, shelby & shannon. cut the circles out of both papers. and attached them in a wavy shape on both sides of the paper. i think the finished resalt is quite effective.

I had a great time scraping these photo's, of my brothers. using my fab new chocolate papers, flowers & brads. i also bought these fab making memories, metal frames. which were ideal for this lo. i used the striped paper for the background. then cutout a floral paper smaller, then the backing paper, cuting a scallope edge at the bottom of it. i then cut out circles from various chocolate papers, the circles were cut in three differant sizes. i attached the circles diagonaly through the centre of the lo. i stuck the framed photo's, at the top of the page on the right hand side. i typed out my brothers names, with the dymo machine. and attached the words to the bottom circle. i stuck down the black ribbon at the bottom of the floral paper, then added three big flowers togeather and attached them to the black ribbon with a chocolate brad. i also added some small flowers to the page. then last of all i added a brothers sticker, cutting the sticker, in to seperate words. i brought the chocolate papers, chocolate flowers, chocolate brads and metal frames from the memory keepsakes website.

i had a fun day yesterday, making this lo, i used a spoty paper for the background, then i used a big plate to draw around on the back of the black floral paper, cut it out and stuck it down in the centre of the spoty paper, using the plate again i drew around it on to white paper, then drew a circle inside that circle, ( by hand ) making a big circle frame, i cut the frame out with my craft knife & scissors ,then stuck it down over the black paper. i mounted the photo on white card and attached it to the lo. i wrote out some single words on to white paper, drawing a border around them then cutting them out, attached those around the photo. i made the flowers myself using black paper, using a white gel pen i drew a border inside the flowers and coloured the centres of the flowers in. attaching the flowers to the lo with brads. i drew in some twirls around the flowers for added interest. last of all i drew the name gary on the back of the black paper, cut it out then stuck it down at the bottom of the page. i just love this lo.
