I seriously need to clean up my scrapbooking area. It's a mess. And I have been on a buying binge of late. Ssshh. Don't tell Steve. It wouldn't be so bad if I actually scrapped more to use it up. I guess I should be called a collector instead of a scrapbooker. Sigh.

Here are some layouts from The Scrapbook Establishments newsletter I did this last week. Lucky me got to use the new Lime Rickey range! You know, I actually struggled doing these layouts. I think because I have been using a lot of kraft and pale colours of late, that when I went to use the brights I was a little overwhelmed. It's obvious. Indeed.

This one was my take on the sketch in the latest Basic Grey newsletter:





Boy was I struggling big time. Just when I gave up trying, I chucked this layout together in about an hour. Which is probably a record for me because it takes me so long to scrapbook:

  1. They're all gorgeous Beth. I think you have done very well with the brights. But it does feel strange when we have been working with pastels or muted tones for a while. Even in embroidery LOL I look at it and can't vision the finished product like that table cloth I finished ages ago.
