Monday Creative: weekend layouts

Happy Monday;
And Happy May Day..... I can't believe it's May already and we are sure getting the weather for it!!! I've got bedding on the line and another load in the machine..... We've also spent alot of time gardening this weekend which was fab AND I did 2 layouts. Ok one was started at the crop and the other was semi started last year but still......
Autumn Morning
Ok so this was the layout I started about a year ago; I had the photo originally backed on cardboard; and well that's all I had done. I knew I wanted to use the Basic Grey Granola collection; and when I found the kit yesterday I thought, well let's get it finished. I was also on the Webster's Pages blog and got inspiration from THIS layout by DT member Gabrielle. Anyway here is what I did:

I love the Prima leaves; and I just used a gold dabber to give them a slightly more rustic, autumn feel; I used some crackle paint too and lots of distress ink!!! The photo is of me a few years ago; on one of those days when you can see your breath - I just happened to get a photo!!!!

Girls (& Goggles)
This is the layout I gave sneaks of on Tuesday Creative last week; I used plenty of Websters Trendsetter papers; some cute film strips; buttons and Prima centres. I cut up one of the sheets of websters to get the mannequin shapes; and I used some orange glimmer mist:
The photos are from our wedding; they are Jaynee; Clare; Lisa and Sharon (the last 3 are my sisters)..... I loved these photos and when I saw the Trendsetters photos I knew the 2 would work just perfectly. I can't wait to play with more Websters - we got another Angel Crafts order through at the weekend ; my part was full of Websters and Prima (oh and crop prizes!!!)..... so excited to get scrapping; and I really really want to get knitting this week.
love, V xoxo

Yeah for being productive over the weekend. Love your layouts. The fall one with the leaves in the circle is excellent. I love the paper tearing and revealing the underside too. Very cool look! Thanks for sharing. :)
