Running Wild

I took some photos of the GD's at the beginning of the year when we were near Hubbards Hills, Louth.  The sun was out so I got all of them running around and racing each other whilst I snapped away :O).  You can just about make out little Heidi way back in the distance lol!!!)

When I saw this photo I just knew I wanted to create a window-style layout but life has just been a little busy lately and I have only just got round to starting on it yesterday.  I created the window frame out of white Linen card and built up the layers with 3d pads.  I then added some leaves (sizzix die) and placed them so that they looked like they were creeping in through the window. The background paper was distressed and inked with Vintage Photo and ramdomly stamped with a Crafty Individuals crackle stamp.  A few rosebuds, a bit of pink lace and here it is.....

Well thats it for now - I've finished off all my card commisions/wedding invites and can now have a little more 'me' crafting time.

Thanks for looking  Polly x
