scrapbook challenge

well here is a first for me!! a 12x12 scrapbook page ~scrummystash cafe`s challenge this week is a sketch ~ so up for this challenge i`ve had a go!! i had a lovely boxed scrapbook and coordinating bits, up in my cupboard for nearly a year, and kept saying i would start making it!! (always the next day!!) so thanks to scrummystash cafe (who have got me hooked on buttons and stealing my childs foam shapes) here is my first scrapbook page. i used brenda pinnick paper, photo tags, label and quote , (which reads: precious jewel, you glow, you shine, reflecting all the good things in the world ) photo of lewis when he was 2 years old, and quickutz revolution flourish die (please click on photo for better look). i am very pleased with my first attempt ,and am now looking forward to my next page , so some more sketches please , i do need some help starting!!!
what a day yesterday~ my washing machine just made a horrible noise and smelt of burning near the end of a wash, the end of it`s washing life!! so now over £300 lighter , we found a company who could deliver a new one today!! (husband said -oh may have to move your craft table/cupboard to get the new machine in ,through the living room!! mmmmm how long would that take to clear and move???)
hope you all have a good day , and it`s filled with "nice" surprises!! byeeeeeeeee xx
