You 2

How lucky was I. Only happened to be in Sugar and Spice when Marion's new stamps where put out. So I had to have them to add to my collection. They are yummy. Go in and Have a peek.
I decided to use the All Lined Up set for a simple layout featuring my niece and nephew. I just have to say "I want a nice photo of the you two" and they start mucking around, squeezing each other tight, digging each other in the ribs, but producing great pictures. Believe it or not, these were taken at the crematorium whilst taking flowers to Dad. I have to say, he would have got a kick out of the laughter and jokes that day.

I used three pieces of card stock; Dark brown, Royal Blue and White layering them on top of each other. The blue matched the lining of Jamie's top and gave way the whole colour scheme for the LO. The lime being the perfect contrast. Keeping the design to straight lines was again taken from the design of Jamie's jacket and the name of the stamp set used.

The two strips from the white card I cut off, were used to form ribbons for the borders of the pictures and stamped with the flowers and dots from the All Lined Up set. The Heart Pin flowers were perfect to sit above and below the smaller pictures without over powering their content. A little blue scribble flower with a lime green brad and a title using stamps from the Fat Funky Alphabet set, finished the page.
