this is a lo of my niece victoria, i decided to use circles again, but in a differant way this time. i cut a thin strip of dotted paper first. then a wide strip of a differant pattern paper. i stuck the thin strip down first, then the wide strip on top of that. then i added a big square of dotted paper, over the wide band, leaving a small gap, so you can see the underlying paper. i added a thin strip of dotted paper next to that. i cut out 4 tiny circles brown, and stuck them down at the top of the page. i then cut out 3 differant size circles, on 1 i attached a photo of victoria & a flower. the middle one i added dymo words, and mounted that on to some cream card. the top 1 i added a flower. i cut out 2 small brown circles and stuck them on to the top circle. and last of all i added the flowers bottom left of page.

This lo is of my niece tammy, using the chocolate paper set, i cut out a big circle shape frame, i then cut some of the papers in strips. i attached the paper strips down first, with the smaller one in the middle. then i stuck down the big circle frame on top. i stuck the photo down, at the top of the circle. then i cut out some squares, using two of the papers. and stuck those down, over the bottom half of the circle. using cross stitch thread i stitched around over two of the squares, for added interest. the other two squares i drew in the stitching. then added some stickers in the squares. on the first stip of paper, i attached a vellum sentament, in the centre, using chocolate brads. also adding some brads to the top and bottom. last of all to finish the scrapbook page, i attached the flowers, to the corners of the photo. im quite pleased with how this lo turned out.

here is a lo i made, using ovel shapes, these are my three nephews, they are brothers. so i thought id do a brother theme page. i used my fiskars oval stencil to draw inside the ovels. i never could use the cutter that came with it. so i just draw around the shapes and use a scissors or a normal craft knife instead. i cut some ribbon in three diferant lenghts. and added the two long ribbons across the page first. then over the top of these, i stuck down the 3 differant lengh ribbons down. i stuck the mounted photo's down on top the ribbons, for a differant effect. i added a party die cut in between the two ribbons. i then cut out a square from purple paper, and added brother stickers, buttons and star brads to this. adding two buttons and a sticker underneeth. i made the journaling card myself, using deckle edge scissors and journaling pens. i added this to the page. and last of all to finish it off i added football stickers. im quite pleased with how this lo turned out.
