The EK June crop

Saturday was the June crop at Eclectic Keepsakes and I was especially looking forward to it as I haven't done much scrapbooking lately.  My inner crafting goddess has been channelling her energies into sewing - but more of that another day.  So the sun is shining, I'm singing along to an old  Killers CD that I found in the door of the car as I drive along (I am word perfect on Mr Brightside) and of course there is one thing on my mind.  What cupcake flavours will there be today? Because Karen has inadvertently made life doubly difficult for herself by offering a choice of two cupcakes for each crop.  Which means that we all have to have one of each.  Of course we do.  This month Karen had made Guinness with vanilla butter cream and blueberry with rose water.  Both were delicious, in totally different ways the Guinness ones were amazingly rich and did not really taste of Guinness at all and the blueberry ones were light and delicate, a perfect alternative.
The class in the afternoon was taught by Denise and was very typical of the lovely pages that she designs.


It was a lovely, relaxing afternoon and the layout was very calming to make although it did reduce Ann to tears.  Not over the complexity of the layout but she had chosen a lovely photo of her with her nan and when she started writing the hidden jounalling on the little tag that sits beneath the photo it got all the emotions going.  I love the little wooden embellishments that Denise included and also the little 'dew drops' that were scattered on the page. 
Another lovely day, eating lovely cakes and making lovely pages.  Lovely.

My mouth is watering at the sound of those cupcakes. I love how delicate your page is and can't wait to hear more about that sewing after seeing sneak peaks on instagram!
