Don't let the sun go down on me

UK Scrappers is celebrating its 5th anniversary with a birthday cyber crop. Scissors and glue have been brandished this weekend all over the land. I completed two of the class layouts myself. Here's one of them, fresh from a party on Saturday night. This is John's mum Marie, who's quite a character.

This was quite a cost effective layout for me (tell John the good news!). It uses scraps of paper, which few of us ever throw away (I keep them in a file labelled "serendipity"), plus I used the free stencil that came with Scrapbook Inspirations a while ago and the journalling circle was a spare from one I made yesterday, cut in half. The chipboard letters were a find from the local pound shop.

Last week there was a magnificent sunset and I rushed out with the camera to take the view from directly opposite our house, and to the side. I scrapped the results in a simple way to show off the sunset. I used new Rhonna Farrer paper, a few orange flowers and, a great invention in my view, self adhesive vellum. Goes through the printer a treat.

Next up: Christmas cards. So much for saying I wouldn't make many this year! I must have already made about 15.
