I am such a bad, bad blogger! I've been regularly posting photos to my photo blog but have neglected this blog. But for the first time this year I have something crafty to show you. I went to the monthly crop today at Stamp Addicts. It was the first time I had been able to go since November and was the first time I had scrapbooked since then too. I managed to complete three layouts despite accidentally leaving a lot of the necessary stash at home.

The first layout used photos of some rather cute little marmosets taken a couple of years ago at Cricket St Thomas Wildlife Park at Chard in Somerset. I used BasicGrey papers. The title lettering (cut on the Craft Robo) has a soft feel to it as I've coated with Doodlebug Crushed Velvet Flock.

The photos on the next layout were taken at Abbotsbury Children's Farm, Dorset. I used Scenic Route and BasicGrey papers. The word 'Pony' in the title is very glossy IRL. I used chipboard letters which were inked, stamped with a slightly different colour and then coated in Diamond Glaze.

The last layout I put together is of Lara's fascination with a clam which we found on the beach at Westward Ho!, Devon last summer. I used Fancy Pants papers. The swirls are Doodlebug Designs 'Stick With It' stickers which I've coated with their sugar coating glitter. The title lettering (cut on the Craft Robo) is also coated in the same glitter so the layout is quite sparkly IRL.

Before I go, a quick reminder to UK fans that Lost Season 6 starts next Friday, 5th February on Sky One and Sky HD at 9pm. Its going to be the last season - OMG what will we do when it finishes!!!!
