The photograph is bit poor as the flowers are cerise pink in real life but look red in the photo!

6 of something (5pts)
Something on LO flips (10pts)
Repeated first letter in title (10pts)
Something new (5pts)
Here is my layout.
I think I have earned full points as I have used 6 flowers with buttons on them. The cardboard bit would lift/flip in real life (not sure I can claim points for this), I have Z for the first letter in each word of the title and something new is me being new to digi scrapping.
I have used a Carrie Stephens Spontaneous Delight freebie kit.

After an hour of playing, this is what I have come up with - I worry this may become addictive!!!
The papers are from the My Minds Eye Magnolia paper stack and then I have added a greeting (Hero Arts - I think) and some Prima Quick Pick Hydrangeas. I am going to give it to my DH's Auntie who is having her hip replaced tomorrow and I hope the lovely bright colours cheer her up and help with a speedy recovery.

This is my green photo with a splash of orange!

Slowly people started to drop out and soon there were just a few of us left. We fast became friends and we would all chat on a daily basis and post up our photos according to Anna’s prompts. We would share our problems, our good news and our sad news or troubles. We never judged each other and we were always there for one another
Some of us got the chance to meet up during the year at various craft fairs and I met up with Kay and Lynne down in Poole in the Summer. It is the strangest feeling to meet up with someone that you feel you know really well but have never actually met.
In November we organised a retreat in Oxford for the weekend. This was the chance for all of us to finally meet up – rather than a few of us at a time. We all had such a great time – lots of crafting, scrapping and chat. Anna came along and taught us a class - I even got her to sign my scrapbooking magazine that she was featured in that month.
All the photos in this album have been taken by Anna herself – hence them being so good and professional looking.
The only person who couldn’t make it to our retreat was Karen due to ill health and hence there is no page for her. But I hope to rectify that...
I am organising another retreat in June 2009 and we are all hoping that Karen will be able to come to this one. This time we are having a cottage in the New Forest for 3 days. There will be 16 of us – for more craft, scrapping and chat! And it is Shirley’s birthday, so maybe the odd glass of wine or two!!
