Harley's Egg Scrapbook Layout

Today after running a few errands and popping into the library I ended up on the phone for a few hours! So fried was my brain after that with everything bouncing around in my head, I felt like I had fireworks going off in my head! I decided to retreat to my studio to 'craft out' my stress - works every time!

I made this rather soothing layout (it makes me relaxed just looking at it!) of one of the days leading up to Christmas when we were at my mums, the snow was almost to the top of my wellies and I was ill from waiting around for trains for 9 hours (grrr!) but my little sisters really wanted me to go and see their animals, the chickens and ducks and rabbits, so off we trudged in the snow and cold, I could barely breathe! but it was so sweet to watch them cleaning up after them all and stroking them, making sure they were all happy. Harley was so happy one of her chickens had laid an egg, she wanted me to feel how warm it was but I could see a little bit of chicken poop on it and I knew where that warmth had come from - no thanks!! LOL

The paper is from My Minds Eye 'Quite Contrary' I got this in a Studio Calico kit and haven't been able to get it messy, but I thought it worked really well for this LO.

 Bits and bobs are from October Afternoon, Crate Paper and American Crafts, also used my Ranger Paint Dabber to run round the edge of the kraft cardstock and the LO.

This is also my first 2 picture layout! All of my layouts are usually just one picture but I was brave and I don't think it looks cluttered - I think there will be more to come!
