Cheery layouts for a sad day!

There is a bit of a standing joke at work about me always keeping a couple of days holiday back in case I have to go to a funeral - morbid you might think, but it's something that's important to me!

Anyway, today was sadly one such funeral! A lovely local ex jockey sadly died last week, so today I have paid my respects and shared in the memories... he had the most infectious raspy laugh and for that I shall remember, along with his green round necked sweatshirt!
RIP Mr Paul Russell xxx
I wonder how I'll be remembered?

So to leave me smiling instead of sad, I thought I'd share some of my recent ScrapaGoGo layouts...

'Warning Love Bug' uses the gorgeous wood grained paper from Crate and although there is no red in the photo, the cutest ladybird pieces were perfect with the woodland themed image and so the introduction of red as an accent colour.

My second cheery layout has a predominant red theme and remembers our trip to Florida last year.

On the day we went to the Magic Kingdom, we all wore spotty red dresses and myself, Nina and Caitlin all co-ordinated our underwear too!

Before we left our villa, we flashed our pants at the camera... need I say more!

With a plethora of alphas in the June kit, I used a combination of them, along with the hybrids and rub-ons to create the longest title I think I've ever done on a layout!

We could all do without the sad day love, but they have to be endured. Love your layouts so happy and fun!
