Scrapbooking Layouts

Good Evening Crafters

I thought tonight I would show you a couple of layouts which I completed at the Penallys workshop which was held last Saturday.  It was a fun class with lots of giggling and frolics going on and the day seemed to fly by and before we knew it we were packing up to go.  I had also completed two layouts of my "Fergus" album too.  I will show you that album another time when I have got over being teased about it on Saturday!!

The first layout we completed was this one...

The photograph was actually taken from the Eiffel Tower and despite the layout looking very girlie I thought that the colours of the papers were absolutely perfick for the colours in the photograph. 

Who says views cannot be portrayed in pretty layouts? 
There was a picture available of me having just taken the photograph, but my red handbag let the colours down a little!  It was a Radley handbag but the red wasn't right!!

The next layout we did after having a bit of lunch is this one....

The photo is of my Hubby when we were on the Seine hopping from place to place. 

I think here we were on our way to the Notre Dame after walking all round the Eiffel Tower.  We were glad of a rest!!I had taken several "nautical" photographs with me but I felt this one best suited the colours.

The papers we used for the first layout were Basic Grey and the second layout were Paper Loft.  I had not heard of Paper Loft papers but they were lovely quality and not as thin as some makes of paper.  I will definately have a look around to see if I can buy more of those papers.  As for Basic Grey they are one of my favourite companies already.

Thanks for looking and please leave me a comment so that I know you have been here.  They always make me smile!!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow as I will be showing you the PIF gift I received from Kim.  It is fantastic!!

These are fabulous spreads!! I don't think "girly" enters the picture when you're talking about Paris! And your Hubby looks great in his layout! Very fitting.

And I'm tickled that you like my PiF. Mine is still en route from S. Africa...hope it gets here soon!
Have a great "non-Pants" week!
