Simple

I put together a very quick layout yesterday, for a gift. I think it's the simplest layout I've done ever! Once the photos were on and the title it didn't really seem to need anything else.


Still - I sat back and felt like I was cheating - but not everything has to be complicated and take a lot of time does it?

Speaking of not taking lots of time - I've done a couple of cards for the daring cardmakers weekly dare. Raid your wardrobe ...

The original idea - hanger and dress - came from a friend, so I can't claim the credit for that. But I picked the colours myself - out of the Scrapbook Essentials Jan Kit of BG Blush papers! And I made the coathanger myself using my new round nosed pliers I had to buy so I could make the necklace I'd been meaning to make for ages...

Well, Jessi has gone to play at a friends house, Alexander is watching t.v and Rebekah is 'scrap-lifting' my hanger cards so I might just sneak of and flick through my new mag.

Neat cards, Beverley! And you're right about simple sometimes being okay. Although I struggle with it just as much!! I always feel I need to 'add' something!

The cards are great, Beverley - and doesn't that Blush paper make a great dress - just what Rhi was thinking about for her wedding, you know!
Had a quick wander around the glog to see what you've been up to - the CJ looks great and you have some lovely photos on here, thanks for sharing

Love the colours you've used on the cards, especially the paper. Nice to see another Wellingtonian involved with DCM.
