Eclectic Crop

What better way to spend a Saturday?  A day cropping with the Eclectic Ladies. Read Karen's version of the day here! One of the many highlights of the day for me and a recurring question going over and over in my mind on the journey up there is ... what favour cupcake will it be this month?  And once again, Karen did not disappoint ....
So good morning was spent settling down, drinking tea, eating said cupcakes, and having a good chat with my friends Denise and Jane.  Although I'm not sure I should be quite so forgiving of Denise for her post on her blog here where we are referred to as Old Biddies and not Old Buddies!  Good job we both share the same sense of humour eh?
The guest designer was Ann Freeman (gosh, lots of links going on today!)  and she had come up with a lovely double page layout for us using some fab papers.  I even forgive her the cutting out of wiggly bits and picture frames because the finished result was lovely
and here are pages left and right on their own


Ann had used black and white pictures on her version and I have to say that I think that it looks even better that way.  They were lovely papers from Echo Park 'Be Mine' collection.  Check them out - but be prepared to end up buying some! 

Don't forget to leave me a comment if you want to be included in the pass the book draw .......

I have to say I am so envious of Karen's skill with a cupcake - they are so pretty! That's a beautiful layout with lots of lovely little details to look at.
