My very first layout

Well a couple of weeks ago I went to Fidgeon's on my very first workshop. Met up with Rosie and met Kathy for the first time too. Much hilarity took place but not much scrapping on my part. Never done it before and was a little nervous to say the least.

Well Kathy and Rosie helped me no end and I chose these papers by Tinkering Ink very bright, bold and yes orange. tee hee Most of the work has been done for me I feel by the paper with those big jungly blooms which I layered up on some of the petals. Hand scalloped the paper down the right hand side - thanks Kathy for tutoring me and just added the date and some doodling. I should add I only finished this last night.

The layout is of my cute neice Mia taken last year whilst she was playing in her mum's pot plant. Tee hee what a rascal!
