A new day

Hi there,

Bet you thought I'd never return to post again!!! Believe me, I've been trying but life just keeps getting in the way.

Apart from my love of cardmaking, I have always loved scrapbooking but not delved into it much until now. Thank goodness a group of my lovely friends have been guiding and inspiring me along the way.
I really like the scrapbook page layout on the front of the now retired Summer Mini, so the girls and I decided to give it a go. Apart from the photo I've tried to get it as close to the original layout as I could.  I hope you like the result.

Recently, I ran a class with my card club girls who requested we try some male cards. Because I have 2 gorgeous sons and an amazing husband, it came reasonably easy for me to organise some cards. I must admit I did get inspiration for the cards from other demonstrators (thank you).
