Half Century Celebrations

Had a wonderful week celebrating! Friends gave me a surprise lunch on Monday, followed by the family dinner celebration; book club party for two 50th, one 60th and one 48th on Wednesday and a party on Friday!

Blues and greens were my theme colours. I used Hero Arts stamps. I was going to do butterflies for ladies, but then I thought it would leave caterpillars for men! So went with jewels instead - as I see my friends as jewels - all differents with different facets yet all so precious. Added a gem to the centre of the doilies. Used the large feminine one (S5317 Starburst lace) for the ladies, and the smaller but more bold one (F5318 Starburst) for the men.

A wonderful evening!

It's a guy thing

This is one of my favourite layouts . . . pretty clean and clear . . . I wanted to give the feeling of the open sky and sea. But with the detail of the woven photo (one colour, one black and white). This brings back the feeling of that afternoon so well.

4" Book & 90 minute scramble

Made this 4" book using the Bind-it-all and the absolutely beautiful Fabscraps papers. I've been dying to get my hands on this set.

Fabscraps is a South African company that has a great paper range amongst the many products they offer. They have just been to their first CHA, where they won an award. Congrats to the Fabscrap team!

The cover was made in layers . . . cardstock, pp, acetate stamped with Staz-On mounted with foam dots to give depth, flower and title also mounted with foam dots.
And some of the inside pages too . . .

And while I was trying to finish this, I realised that the Hero Arts Flickr group 90 minute scramble challenge was running at the same time. Had to make a 2 or more fold Birthday card. I only read the instructions with 30 minutes to go. So CAS this time. Punched border stamped with the antique flower background stamp.
