DT updates

I have some projects to share :) I went away last week but in the four weeks before I went out of town I did something like 14 projects for the various DTs Im on - which is why Ive been a bit quiet lately! there hasnt really been much to share that I was allowed to! haha. But now I can share a few layouts :)

Scrapware February Projects:
I had so much fun digging into my first kit from Scrapware. The yellow layout is my current fav layout. I adore having a different colour to look at for a change! haha. It's since been commissioned by Scrapbooking Creations.

You are Unique:

Sun and Surf:

My Little Walking Man (4x4 acrylic album with some other SW goodies):

Scrapbook'n'bits Upcoming Class - inspired by Autumn:

I have a class coming up at Scrapbook'n'bits and I have to say - this kit is just delicious!!! its so autumny and warm. Perfect to help welcome in autumn :)

The kit is enough for 2 layouts and 3 cards - with plenty of stuff left over .... especially flowers. oh my goodness there are so many wonderful flowers of all sizes!!!! During the class we will be doing two layouts that explore painting techniques, and you will also be provided with instructions to do three simple cards as well.

Here are the sneak peaks of the layouts:
