Springtime Vintage Layout

I've been wanting to show you this since Saturday as I made this layout at Jules' training in Leeds. She gave us all some kit to use and we were left to our own devices to design our layout. I couldn't finish mine as I'd run out of printer ink and so couldn't add my photograph! Anyway, finally here it is:

It's a photo of my downline Tracy and my upline Steph taken in November at Stampin' Up! European convention on awards night. So to make my layout I'd been a lot inspired by a chipboard letter Anthea had done on a card and she kindly showed me how she'd done it. I decided I wanted to do something similar and using the On Board Alphabet Chipboard letters was such good fun. They started off life as dull grey chipboard letters and I transformed them to coordinate with the Springtime Vintage papers:

As you can see I've also been playing with the Big Shot dies and embossing folders and of course buttons, ribbons and pearls too!
Ironically Springtime Vintage is the theme for my next scrapbooking class on Tuesday 26th April at 7.30PM. The cost of the class is £10 or £22 including a 12x12 album. If you'd like to come along please contact me to book your place.

I'd like to share the lovely surprise birthday cupcake Jules gave to me and also to Karyn:

And here's Gem struggling to get both our sparklers lit at the same time!

It was the scrummiest cupcake ever - big fudge pieces on the top mmmmm, mmmmm! Thanks Jules!
