Pinch Punch

The 1st of August 2011 can only mean 1 thing... my BFF Suzy is celebrating her eldest son turning 18!!! Happy Birthday Nick :) & Happy Birth-day of Nick to Suzy & Simon :)

However the 1st of the month also means its ScrapaGoGo Chinese Whispers CJ time - it was a bit of a rush this month but I'm still pleased with this LO using the June kit - based on a LO sent to me along the Chinese Whispers line and the title is similar to this LO from Sarah Youde. The journalling reads 'After a fall off his bike, Kyle only had hugs for Lumpy - my teddy! Of course, he was only on loan! He always is!!!'

A Boy & His/My Teddy
And a couple of close-ups because I'm trying out taking close-ups!!! LOLAs I typed this, I realized I haven't blogged any Circle Journal LOs since March's! Oops! So without further ado...

The Masks (using the April GoGo kit)
Another of my recent LOs was of Madison's first smile - caught on camera on Day 2!!! I used more of the lovely Cosmo Cricket Pixielicious range I love so much!

First Smile
Do you like my 3D butterfly? I know it doesn't take much, but I am rather impressed with it!
I punched it out of the purple spotted acetate, which I then used as a mask for the Wild Honey Distress Ink before securing the acetate butterfly on with variegated thread from WRMK Sew Easy range.


  1. Beautiful pages - I'd been missing the CJ layouts! Love the masks photos - looks like you don't take DIY too seriously in your house!

  2. Oh Ally what gorgeous pages and yes i do like the 3d butterfly. I'm also wanting now a WRMK sew easy tool lol xx

  3. Love the 'first smile' LO but then who wouldn't - what a cutie!

  4. Beautiful LO's...and Madison is such a cutie x

  5. Beautiful LO's Ally as always!

  6. thanks for the birthday wishes, Ally! Love the LOs, they're all fab! X
