Nephew

Hi all,
Well what a weekend I have had. The good news is I've been scrapping and creating, and actually finished one particular project that I started 2 months ago. Phew. But it has been a really awful day today otherwise.

Our oven died a few days ago so rather than repair it again, we are probably going to get a new one. Annoying but not the end of the world. Over the past few weeks there have been so many issues at work that its been downright horrible. Well today we got yet another disaster when our washing machine decided to flood half the house. It must have only been 10 minutes after I'd turned it out when my husband started calling out. It had just kept filling and water was covering our tiled areas through the laundry, up the hallway and into our dining area. The only reason he noticed is that the cat was walking along and trying to avoid water and looking at him for help. Still no idea what's happened but it took us a good 2 hours probably to get the water out again. Luckily no damage anywhere but what a horrible day. So that means a new oven and washing machine are on the agenda. Its BBQ for dinner tonight.

Here is a layout I completed last night. Its of my nephew Connor who is 6 now. I love this cute photo of him. I have used the sketch inspiration from A2Z Scraplets for this one.

 I decided to leave the chipboard raw on this one as it compliments the colours in the layout and the bars in the photo. I was going to paint them white but was happy with the way they looked already.

 Also I had intended to do the entire name using the letters cut from a page in the kaiser mini pad but for some reason it had no I's so I had to use the mini alphas for the middle name. How strange!
Materials: Kaiser Lullaby mini paper pad, mini alphas, white paper bloom; Prima flowers; RW Lasercuts title; A2Z scraplets flourish.

Thanks for looking :-)

What a beautiful page. You have used the blue just beautifully.
And as for white goods, they arent made to last these days are they? My mum had our washing machine for about 30 years. I am onto my second and I think it is on its way out after 5 years.
