Colour me happy!

I've gone all colourful with my scrapping of late, first of all with this scraplift of a LO from the February issue of Scrapbooks Etc:

The original was about a little girl's crafting, but I've used the same design for a rare LO of my dh. I've also finally worked out how to make pictures look good in black and white using Photoshop - ok, I admit it, dh showed me! I used my beloved Cuttlebug to cut out the hearts from patterned paper and thick card and foam pads to lift them from the page. But I was left with all the negative cut outs, which were equally as pretty. I'd vowed to use them on a LO, and I did and this is the result:

Well my week off has flown by and today is like any other Friday, ds and me sat at home waiting for the postman before we can go out and watching CBeebies! We're going round to my mum's later and then tomorrow is the Leeds crop, which I can't wait for. There should be a fair few of us all chatting and scrapping this month!
Erm, not much more to say. The house looks like a bomb has hit it with me ploughing on with the last of the decorating in the kitchen and the bathroom wall pulled down to move the door to accommodate the new suite, which will hopefully be fitted in about a week's time. Aaaaarrgh, there's debris everywhere, I can't wait for it all to be finished. I just hope it's done quicker than the kitchen, which we started last September!

Bye for now! :)

"I've also finally worked out how to make pictures look good in black and white using Photoshop" - ooh - what's the secret??

I like how you've used the negative cut-outs on the layout.
