Something bold, something new...

Hey up! It's yet another layout inspired by Shimelle's online crops and challenges from last weekend - the fun is still running til this Sunday, if you fancy joining in.The challenge is number 10 in a series of 17, I think, and it involves scrapping two photos on a bold background. I have been saving this paper for a special project, you know, one of those pieces of paper that you can't use because it's just too pretty? Well, this is one of those sheets of paper. I thought that scrapping last Mothers' Day with my two darling daughters was finally a special enough project.

I've also used some printable notecards that I swear I got from Kirsty Neale's awesomely inspiring blog, but I can't find the link for the life of me (I downloaded them about 3 years ago, so that could be the problem!). ETA: Apparently, they're not Kirsty's, so if anyone knows who's they are, please give me a shout and I'll link appropriately! There are actually 5 coloured circles, but the turquoise and green ones didn't go with the colour scheme, so they have been cunningly covered up by skillful placement of stuff.

 It documents the pictures that were taken in our local cafe. I very rarely am on the other side of the camera, so photos of me are rare. Not only that, but getting three people to look at the camera and smile at the same time, particularly when two of those people are wriggly children, is darn near impossible! Hence the title - "2 out of 3 is not bad".

It also uses my new Martha Stewart butterfly punch, and my favourite pearls, of which I am running low - time for shopping!

And a little cluster of journalling spots, and there we have it! Job's a good 'un, as they say.

Just how many pieces of special paper are you hoarding?  Go on, make something, I dare you!
