All grown up...

Hi there. I hope you are having a good week so far. I just want to do a quick share of this layout I did on the weekend. Its for the Scrapbooking Top 50 February CC and the challenge was set by Sarah, Guest DT member for February. We had to use Black and White + one other colour. I've used some old Kaiser "Loire Valley' Collection and the birdcage is from Kaisercraft too. The pic is of DS on his way to his Year 12 Ball in March last year.
A close up of that gorgeous Kaiser birdcage.
And another close up.
Thats all for today. Don't know when I'll be productive again... While I was hanging the washing out yesterday I got stung by a bee and my hand is so puffed up its not funny. Got something from the chemist today to try and get the swelling down because its so sore and uncomfortable to use.
Oh well, I'm sure I'll be back to normal in no time.
Hope you are all having a good week. Thank you for popping by my blog and for your lovely comments.
Until next time.

This Lo is so stunning!! Classic and yet masculine! Love that palette. Too bad about the bee sting. :( That is frustrating to have it get in the way of scrappy time! Hope your hand feels better soon. :)
