Ta-ra-ra boom de-ay!!

Yep! Still struggling with thinking of exciting post titles!! Hopefully I'll get my title mojo back real soon!!

Anywhooo....here's the last of those pages I did last weekend, and I think it's quite sweet. I loved this pic of Lee and his nephew, and thought I'd use it to document the conversation they have at least every ten minutes when they are together, which goes along the lines of Lee asking "Who's your best Uncle?", and Harrison replying, with a huge grin on his chops, "Uncle Lee!!!!". Very sweet!
PP is very old Basic Grey ('twas perfect for this LO - it just goes to show NEVER throw anything away!!!) and Creative Imaginations, chipboard American Crafts and Fancy Pants, buttons My Minds Eye. Stamped the acetate border with acrylic paint and a small lid, and used a dymo to make the brown journaling strip. I saw a punch advertised in Creating Keepsakes that gives you the effect of torn note-book paper, loved the effect, but ever-striving to get looks whilst saving pennies I had a go at copying it by making holes with my Cropodile and tearing outwards from each one to the edge of the paper. I think it worked quite well and will not be splurging on the punch!
Been trying to catch up with the HSMS prompts from over the weekend today, but couldn't find anything inspiring to photograph. I did manage the "Down" prompt though, although it could quite easily be "up" too, depending which way you are going at the time!! This is my hallway, there's a window at the top of the landing and I love how the light flowing in has made this shot look magical - it's like the original Stairway to Heaven, don't you think?!!!
It was the Swansea crop on Friday, I didn't get much done as per usual, but it was fab as always to catch up with everyone, especially Gems. My lil sister is getting in on the scrapbooking act now and came along for the evening, and we're all off to the South Wales crop in Newport next Saturday. Fab stash shopping there - better lock up my cheque book me thinks!! xxx

Love your down photo. It really does look like a stairway to heaven. Love your LO too.

Yup, fabby (clean) stairway, really glowing in fact, lol. And great LO, I don't throw things away either. Can't believe there's a punch to do that notepaper look, yours is perfectly authentic looking.

looks like those stairs go on for ever and ever. I'd love to be coming to the Newport crop . . . but I'm going to a first birthday party instead, so should be a good photo opportunity! hope you have fun, gem x

Love the layout, the colours you chose are beautiful, calm looking.

Love the stairs too, I love the way they look as if they are going down one minute and then you look again and think they are going up!
