Scrapbook layout called Snips & Snails

A quite & easy layout using one sheet of paper & stickers.
I started of with a sheet of 12x12 paper by 3 bugs in a rug called Snips & Snails.
I've used a sheet of this before in another layout when one of the grandchildren was little.
Its such a nice theme for little boys ,because after all snips & tails & puppy dog tails are what they are made of .
 As I was going to use a large photo for this  layout size 5 1/2 x 6 3/4 inch  & wanted it to fit in the circle , I began by cutting a large slit in the top & a smaller one to the bottom left of the circle.
By doing this it  meant I could slip the photo under the circle & make the paper & the photo come together nicely.
 Once the photo was in place I added a smile sticker by Bo Bunny & all the other stickers were by Echo Park .
I added a little wooden bird in the tree as well.

September Tag Swap

There is a tag swap running over on ukscrappers each month ,
The theme this month is Bold, Bright, & Flowery.
I had these stamped images for a while now . they had been given to me by a friend.
I've coloured the image with my Whisper pens & put them on some black card.
I used a stamp which had a quote which fitted with this theme, & added bright flowers & Pink ribbon.
Not my normal colours that I use but i'm pleased with how my tags turned out.
If you'd like to know more about what goes on over at uk scrappers follow the link.

Scrapbook Layout Trouble x 2.

I've made this layout for my 8x8 scrapbook.
The boys had just had their hair cut & both wanted the same style.
When their mum sent me this photo of them after their visit to the Barbers  it just reminds me of the Kray brothers.
It just makes me smile when I look at it now.
The paper used is by Prima marketing & Paper Mania.
A bingo card from my stash and a heart held on with a tiny brad .
