i <3 tree's with some shabby chic love.. .. ..

I have a really great time in the workshop tonight… wee Sarah pulled up a chair, got my old craft mat out and crafted along with me πŸ™‚

I made a layout and a card and she made a card with a painted background, newpaper clippings some flower picks, lace and a stamp.

Below is the 8″ x 8″ Layout I made using a picture of a tree that I snapped whilst walking through the woods with the dogs the other week.. and the layout says it all … I really do {heart} trees πŸ˜‰

I was wondering why my camera was taking crappy photos tonight and it wouldn’t focus.. turns out my son had been using it today, altered all the settings and left his fingerprints all over the lens!! the lengths some teens wil go to get a Β photo πŸ˜‰ I suppose i’ll let him off seeing as he “fessed up” to using it lol

Here is a picture of the shabby Chic card I made using some of the leftovers from the Layout
