Scrapping from wales!

I had planned to spend the weekend in Wales with Penny from my UKS team some while ago and then it transpired that it was the cybercrop so we thought that that would be perfect. Only problem was that due to the terrible weather both Severn Bridges were closed on Friday so I couldnt get there. By the time I realised I was at Slough which is around 40 mins from my sister so I went and spent some time with her and stayed. I then managed to drive to Wales on Saturday.

I didn't think as much of the Saturday CC classes as the Friday so just really ended up trying to follow some of the sketches and doing my own thing but over the course of the weekend I managed to do 7 lo's they are not my most favourite lo's I think I was struggling with mojo a little but some of them are ok and I have done a few finishing touches since I got back. This first lo has been made using the daisy bucket papers. Sarahscards had them in their kit in January but I had a lot of the bits from the kit so thought I would buy the papers. This lo is made from one of the sketches on the design booklet. The photo is Clare and I at warwick Castle last year on a very rainey day!
This lo was inspired from a CC sketch although I did not follow the techniques. This is for my party album and I have used the sassafras lass happy days pp.
This lo is of Sarah & I in London after shopping in Harrods - July 2008. The pp is another from the daisy bucket papers that I had.
This was suppose to be one of the CC classes but it didn't turn out anything like it. I do not like this one as much as I had hoped so I need to think of what I can do to improve it.
This is a fun lo made using the pink paisley pop fashion papers. I have had these papers for so long and never got around to using them so its good they have now been used. The photos were taken new year with us 3 girls using the singstar!
I recently went to my cousin's daughters 18th birthday. I really cannot believe she is 18 now how time flies! This was her first "legal" drink as the photo was taken after midnight and that was when her birthday was. I have used the imaginise papers.
This final lo has been made using the daisy bucket papers again. Quite pleased with how this one came out. This is my brother and girlfriend and the photo was taken last year.
So that was my weekend scrapping! Thanks for reading.
