A brilliant day anda at last, I made something.....

.....I feel as if I have been in a crafting wilderness this last two weeks, but I am hopefully back amonst friends now :o)
Sunday was a fantastic day when I hosted our crafting get together and we even had a friend and her hubby fly over from Spain to join us. We started the day with our usual bacon butties, then it was off to Byrkley Park for some ratail therapy where I managed to get some Marianne dies that I have been wanting. You will see some of them on my DLO below.  When we got back we had the soup that I had made the previous evening. It was an "allsorts" soup, I just threw anything I had to hand in it and even if I do say so myself it was good ;-)
A great afternoon of crafting, in which I made precisely nothing, was followed with Chicken casserole and veggies and the lovely Pam had made bread and butter pudding and brought it with her.
Did I hear someone snoring there? I had better get the piccies on then :o)

My apologies for the quality of the photographs, I used the wrong camera in low light because I hadn't got time to change the lens on the other one!
All of the photographs were played with in PSE5 and PSP11 and they are matted onto gold paper. The 12x12 backing paper is from stash.  For the title I used Calvin font in SCAL and cut it out on the Cricut. Marianne dies for the embellishments and the journalling was printed in Word, Harrinton font.
Have a wonderful day everyone :o)

Wow Jackie - these scrapbook pages are stunning. Love how you arranged the photos on the pages and love how you "altered" the photos in your programs - they look so amazing! I've never done anything like that to photos - wouldn't have the foggiest - but I really love how it looks.
