More 'Hopes and Dreams'

I have just realised that I have 2 layouts that I still have to share with you. Don't know where the days are going... The first layout is based on the 1st May sketch over at Stuck Sketches.  I love playing along at Stuck whenever I get a chance.  Here is my layout.  I've used a photo of my MIL and SIL when they were visiting us in March this year. All products are available from The Scrapbook Store.
I just love the colours in the the beautiful new Prima 'Wishes & Dreams' collection.  The fern leaves were cut using the Cheery Lyn Designs 'Pair of Ferns' die. I've added the white butterflies using the Crafters Workshop 'Mariposas' template and some Atelier Heavy Gesso Primer.
 Here is the lovely sketch from Stuck.

My following layout is for the May Prima BAP.  I thought the colours in this collection were perfect for a boy layout.  This is pic of my DS in 2008.  The title pretty much sums up his personality. :)
A close up of the Scrap FX chipboard title.  I used brown ink to change the colour.
And another close up of the cluster.  The 'fine branch' chipboard is from WOW.
Well, that's it for today.  I am frantically packing for The Scrapbook Store's Retreat this weekend! Woohoo! I am looking forward to catching up with all the lovely ladies I've met before and meeting new ones.  It's going to be a blast!
Thank you so much for popping in and for your lovely comments. It's always apprectiated.
Until next time!

Love these colours. That one of your son just pops! And there's no questioning it's masculine feeling despite the floral touches
