Stuck?! Sketches DT 15 Feb 2018 - Sweet Memories

Welcome back to my blog today where I’m sharing a DT layout for 

At the risk of boring you rigid by using Cocoa Vanilla, “Bohemian Dreams” yet again, I’ve chosen to do just that.  The lush florals and dreamy watercolor ombres really float my boat.  

The lace trim is from my stash, I think it's from Kaisercraft.
The cut file is from the Cut Shoppe; it's called Flower Power.
I absolutely love these hand made hearts from Charms Creations
I think they combine beautifully with the floral paper.
The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-
We were all on a beach holiday when this photo was taken at the end of last year.
Your other Grandfather dropped you off at our beach house while he took Alfie, your dog, for a walk.  Even though you don't see us frequently, you were quite happy to stay with us and you enjoyed playing with your big Cousin and with Pa.  Love Granny  31st Dec 2017.

Scrap the Boys DT 6 Feb 2018 - Combined with Stick it Down challenge.

Hello and welcome back to my blog, where today I am sharing a  layout for Scrap the Boys which is a combined challenge with Stick it Down challenge site.
The wonderful sketch is by Laura Rumble who is offering two free cut files which you can find 
We hope you will be inspired to play along.

Just this once, because of the style of the challenge, we are able to use some feminine content on the page and I've chosen to scrap about one of our Grand Boys playing with his little Girl Cousin.

I used the cut file provided and enjoyed using some older stash with it.

The background paper is by BoBunny. It's called Secret Garden.
The purple heart paper and the pink inserts are both older collections from Maja.
I scrounged around and found a tiny bit of vellum, circa 2000, with which I created the shaker heart. 

The title is from Tim Holtz, Quote Chips.
I stamped some flowers to make a cluster and added the purple bow from D'Lish Scraps

The doodling around the edge of the heart was to soften and blend it with the vellum. 
The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-

You spent time with your big cousins recently on a beach holiday.
Oliver was gentle with you, as you showed him how you can climb in and out of the pusher 
and how you can wheel your chariot around and around in endless circles. 
You don't get to see each other often, as you live so far away, 
but that makes the times spent together even more precious.
31st December 2017 - Love Granny.

I appreciate your kind comments and so enjoy reading them.  Thank you.

 My favourite paper collection at the moment is by Cocoa Vanilla and I've used "Bohemian Dreams" again for these sweet photos of my DGD.

I love how the butterfly matches her top so well.
I added a bit of zig-zag stitching the join the floral and pink papers.

The cut file is "Hello Hearts, from The Cut Shoppe; a popped a few sequins on to add a touch of shimmer.  They are from Pretty Pink Posh, "Spring time mix"
