Pin It


I'm mostly a cardmaker who scraps sporadically.  I usually find if I'm going to scrap photos the layout is completed within 48 hours.  I think this is a reflection of how important the event is in my mind.  If the layout isn't completed in that time the photos are put aside to go into a traditional photo album, which will get some attention one day.

This layout features some of the photos taken as the Tawa Scouts, Cubs and Keas marched in the Tawa Anzac parade on Sunday.  I'd put the layout together just after lunch yesterday, Monday.

I usually sell my reitired stamp sets but I kept 'Carte Postale' particularly because of the Fleur de Lis to use with Scout layouts.

Thank you again to Delys Cram for showing me how to make poppies from the 'Butterfly Punch'.  These worked out perfectly for an ANZAC layout.  All scout troops have their own colours.  As the Tawa scouts are within the Wellington Region they use the Yellow and Black of Wellington, hence you'll find that most of my Cub/Kea layouts start with a yellow base card and a sprinkling of Garden Green and Basic Black.
