Aira Force, March 2012

Hi everyone, I thought I'd have another go at scrapbooking this afternoon. I don't do it very often and I should really. Earlier in the year I was lucky enough to have a short break to the Lake District with my hubby. It's the first time we've been away on our own since our honeymoon five and a half years ago. We've always had my daughters with us in the past so it was nice to spend some quality time together in this beautiful place. I've followed a sketch for the "Lasting memories" challenge.

 I've used three colours for this page (green, black and white), although I must say the colours look completely different in real life! I've used a Martha Stewart border punch and added some hot fix gems. The title was cut on the Cricut using the Cuttin' Up cartridge, set to Holy Cow. I've also written the date in the bottom right hand corner.

I would also like to enter this for the following:-
Scrapbook Sisters scrapbook challenge - 3 colours 
The Happy Scrappers - The great outdoors 
Simon says stamp - anything but a card 

Thanks for visiting. I hope you'll come back soon.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
