I've been promising myself for ages that I must get more scrapbook pages done and so was determined to do one this evening. I love doing layouts so really must get more done. One a week would be good. Apologies for the flash as I forgot to turn it off and it's now getting dark so would have to use it anyway.

Graham really wanted one of these trick photos done provided I do a layout of it so I used it with a pic of the White House.The papers are DCWV Nautica. I bought a pad of these papers for £8 in America as I had a 40% off one item voucher. They would be £20 over here full price. They are gorgeous papers, many of them glittered like the blue one I used here. The flag was printed off the internet, the other embellishments are Jolees Boutique bought in America.

Divas by Design Anything but a card
Paperplay Stars and stripes
Craft Us Crazy Red, white and blue
Ladybug Crafts Ink Use red (Thanks Lisa Jane, wasn't sure I could enter a layout)

Scroll down for my first post today showing my craftroom progress. Also if you haven't spotted the 25% off everything sale at Crafty Emma's Store then get over there and grab some bargains. If you liked my surfboard paper I used earlier this week for example you can now buy a 12 x 12 sheet for just 7.5p! I placed my order today for a few necessities, lol. Sale ends Monday at 10am so hurry over there, after leaving me a comment of course.
