This has to be my favourite layout of the weekend.

Suzzane added a paper "Dollie" to our weekend challange kit and I thought what the heck am I going to do with that........ after looking through the photographs that I had with me and in my box of papers that I had left from old layouts, I deceided to ink it up with a creamy brown ink pad and came up with this layout.
The photograph is from my neighbours Hindu wedding cermony it was a wonderful experience.

Firstly I must apologize for being a bad blogger these past couple of weeks, you now how it goes and I haven't been able to do much crafting either except at the weekend I went away on a Scrapping retreat with the ladies from the "Golden Green" crop that I attend. I had a brillant time and did loads of scrapping, so my posts over the next few days will be of layouts that I finished whilst there as my darling husband is decorating the living room and needs an assistant...LOL.
Here are two layouts I've completed, on one of them I have used the paper peircing technique on co-ordinations cards stock and then gently rubbing down with sand paper.

Friendship Atc's

Here is another set of ATC's that I have made for a hosted swap.
I love the effect you get when "stamping off "with this particulat stamp set ~ Pocket Silhouette's and the sentiment is perfect for this swap. The paper is from the Tea and Crumpets collection, which co~ordinates really well with the Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grossgrain Ribbon, Chocolate Chip and So Saffron cardstock.

Get well

Here are the cards that I have made for a Get Well card swap over at the Stamp Shack.

The stamp is from the Fun and Fast Notes set.
I used Stampin' Up!'s Write Markers to colour the image before matting it on So Saffron cardstock. I've also used the So Saffron Stampin' Pastel on the embossed Whisper White cardstock.

As arranged with Dee, I will be demonstrating some of Stampin' Up!'s products. For those of you that are lucky enough to be going you will be able to make a little something to take home with you.

As before I will be donating the Hostesses comission to Cancer research in memory of our good friend Joy I. So the more you spend the more the charitiy will get.

Here are some Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) that I made for a swap that I'm hosting on one of the crafting forums I belong to entitled "Flowers".

I've used the Tulip stamp from Stampin' Up!'s Garden Whimsy set, coloured in with Summer Sun and Always Artichoke marker pens, on Whisper White card stock.
I have then layered this on Always Artichoke cardstock and emblished is with Certainly Celery ribbon.

Time for

another card using one of the new stamp sets in the Stampin' Up! 2009-2010 idea book & catalogue.

Sadly I can't take credit for this card as it was made for me by Shaz my upline "Mummy" knowing that I was unable to craft with all my sneek peaks sitting in front of me.

The main stamp set used is Circle Circus, stamped in and on Summer Sun and Basic Gray colours and emblished with a Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon.

Shaz has layered the Circles up using the Scallop circle punch as well as the circle punches and held them together with a Silver Brad.

The sentiment is from the Cheers and Wishes set.
