Scrapbooking Tuesday - Macro Peonies

Hello Friends

Tuesday is here again, and a pretty cold Tuesday it is here in the UK.  I am extremely envious of a good friend of mine as she has a Crafting Day today aka Snow Day!  I hope she has fun and wish I was with her!

So without further ado here is my layout this week.....

The Peonies were photographed early one morning still with some dew on, whilst I was taking Dobby for his morning perambulation.  I never planted them, but rather they appeared after we transferred some soil from Mum in Law's garden when we were levelling part of her garden to extend the lawn.   
The layout is a kit which I have tweaked to add an extra photo and I have included some stamping and embellishments.
The punch I have used on this top right corner, and indeed all of them, come from a punch which I have used for the first time.  My friend was laughing at me when I was using it as I had to put it on the floor and push down putting all my weight on it (or as much as I could)!!  Talk about being difficult to use.  All the punched pieces and the word "macro" have been glittered with a fine shimmery glitter, but it is not really noticeable on these pics. I did not want it to detract from the photos so am fine with that.

That is it for now folks.  Thanks for calling by and thank you also to my newest members Lauren, Shana and Irene.  Thank you for following me.

What fabulous flowers, Sam. It's amazing that they have grown like they, they always say Peonies are so hard to move, just goes to show they must love their new home. It's made a stunning Lo. I had to laugh at you standing on your punch. I have one just like that too, talk about hard to use!!! I always inspect punches closely before I buy nowadays!!
We have had snow too but it's been beautiful and sunny so I'm not complaining.
Hugs Lisax
