More scrapping achieved

These were taken on a cross-Channel ferry in June. We travelled on M's  birthday so the entertainer made a special fuss of her. Her costume was colourful, to say the least! It was also the Jubilee weekend so there were flags and lifesize Queens well. I decided to stick with the polka dots but limit the colour scheme and I quite like how it turned out.

Just before we left the UK, we had a 'Cocktails and Canapes' family party. The fun decoupaged figure and patterned papers were left over from a Papermania 'It's a Man's World' card kit.

This layout of R setting off for Cub camp is based on a sketch in Scrap 265. The embellishments are much busier than I would have done by myself, but I like it. I haven't got any Glossy Accents or staples here with me, so the string is not adhered yet.

Finally, another page kit I Put together before I left home. Although we missed the actual weekend, I was able to help out at the Jubilee street party at my daughter's school. Predictably, this features Papermania Portobello Road papers and bunting, cut from a commerative newspaper. The rest of the Portobello Rd kit will be saved for my Paralympics page(s). I doubt there are many scrappers in the UK who won't make at least one page this year with Union Flags and bunting! I used a heavy hand with the Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give it a 1950s feel. The silhouette cameo is a portrait of me, created by an artist in Honfleur, France in 2000. I had it in a frame for several years, but I got bored with it, and I thought it suited here.

I think you did a fine job with that 1950's feel! (and that silhouette is simply lovely)

Wow, loving all three of these..I immediately thought the cub camp one was unlike your style, but it totally suits you!
