This afternoon saw me playing in the sitting room with Alex and sitting on the floor with a scrapbook layout in progress. My knees will never be the same again, but I completed it. It was based on this weeks Pencil Lines sketch #41 by Cath. I thought it was a wonderful sketch for showcasing 5 lovely pictures of Alex smiling and earning his nickname of 'Smiler' the title of the layout. The journalling says 'it is easy to see how Alex got the nickname Smiler at the age of three months'. I love the colour combination of blue and yellow and as there is so far very little blue in Alex's scrapbook I decided it was high time that I featured this colour scheme.
I also received another wonderful ATC from Dawn Martindale today entitled 'On the prowl'. The main focus of this ATC is a photograph that Dawn took of a jaguar on a recent trip to Chester Zoo. I love big cats so this card is perfect for me. I love the clever use of the frame on this card. I now owe her a card so I guess the next few days is going to see me making ATCs for a change. More tomorrow,
