Day 3 February challenge

Day 3 of the challenge and again its one of those I can't show immediately as its in the post and I will wait until I know it has been received.   I can now show you Day 1, a card I sent to Marlene of Poppy Patchwork

 I've been a follower of Marlenes blog for some time now and I enjoy seeing the bargains she keeps picking up,  getting ideas for future reads and seeing both her crafting projects and her grandson grow.

I finally have some photos of the layouts I did at last weekend's scrapbooking crop.  First up is a photo of Colette, Lincoln, Harlee-Jay and myself when we went to visit Father Christmas.   The children were keen and eager to get in but as soon as Santa spoke they went all shy, Lincoln almost burst into tears bless him.  It's a wonderful memory though seeing them wander round the grotto.

With this layout I finally got round to using the Anna Griffin dimensional embellishments I have had in my stash for years.  Now I've always liked Anna Griffin products but I always felt these were a bit 'dull' to go on a card but the soft muted colours actually went really well with the colours in the photo.  The papers are from a Kaisercraft range I picked up at Scrapbook Magic before Christmas. 

Next up is a layout of a coffee break Colette, Harlee-Jay, Sebastian and myself were taking after our last minute Christmas shopping expedition on the Friday before Christmas.   The selfie isn't the best quality but the food and coffee in Coffee#1 was delicious

Such lovely pages you've designed and created from Christmas memories.
