This Weekends' LOs.

Have managed two LOs despite my hands (swollen and painful) by taking things slowly.

The first is of my great-niece Katie. The original sketch is by Prima for their April BAP (Build a Page). I have in fact used scraps of prima paper and used edge punches, as suggested  but I replaced the title (should have been bottom left of LO) with some stitching and two heart beads.

The second is for a challenge on WeScrap - to use a larger than normal photo.
The sketch was originally intended for a card but I rotated it 90 degrees. It can be found on Dianne's blog. Thanks Dianne!
Background and patterned paper are by Basic Grey (Optimistic and Ambrosia).
Black card, ribbons,brads and bookplate are from stash. The photo is me circa 1994 - taken at school in High Wycombe - my last teaching post.

Now have a card to make for my great-nephew who will be 5 on 27th - it's quite a week for b'days -Max will be 8 on 24th, DS's friend Robin will be 21 on 25th and my stepMIL has her b'day on 26th -- better get card making!

Excellent weekend for sport! We won, Chelsea lost and Button and Hamilton finished 1st and 2nd in Grand Prix.
