Long lunch

Hi all.. welcome back to my blog!

Back to work for me today, so a very quick post to showcase another of my LO's made with my CKCB blog inspired kit, Summer Swansong.

This time I used a sketch from Scrapology, Adventures in Scrapbooking blog here.

I confess, I went off piste for this challenge though.. the brief was to use three photos, but try as I might, I just couldn't find three photos I wanted to use, so instead, I used two and spread them out a bit! Cheating, I know, but I'm happy with it and that's what matters.. right? 

Anyways, again I used a selection of papers from the Kaisercraft Hummingbird collection, and added a doily instead of a bracket shaped piece of card. I fussy cut the birds and butterflies and added a large elaborate brad, several smaller ones and then added a flair button too.

Overall, I'm so pleased with it, and I am OK that it deosn't fit the brief exactly.. the photos are ones I've been wanting to scrap for a while anyway, so here it is! 

Thanks for looking.. do pop back soon.. I have more the share! 

If you make a comment it'll make my day!
