BBQ Fun in the Sun

Whether or not the sun is shining where you are, I hope you had a great weekend.  Today I'm sharing a scrapbooking layout; you saw the start of it last week in my WOYWW post.  I'm really pleased with it because it uses my favourite Everyday Enchantment papers, but when I showed it to my husband, he couldn't understand why I'd scrapbooked him with all that floral paper!  Cos he's lovely, of course!!!

The 12" background is lovely textured Very Vanilla card, with strips oF Everyday Enchantment down the left hand side.  The punched border is textured Early Espresso card and I think it looks nice and bold compared to the other colours.  I love the title; I treated myself to the Timeless Type alphabet dies as after just four layouts, I was struggling to make the titles I wanted to with my alphabet stickers.

The event I am scrapbooking is a barbecue we held in our garden at the Jubilee weekend.  We were very lucky in that it didn't rain.  We decorated the garden with a friend's bunting, borrowed church's massive barbecue and invited everyone at church who wanted to come.  It was a really great day!  We made a whole host of salads and cakes for everyone, and said 'bring your own meat'... we ended up with a freezer full of burgers and sausages afterwards as everyone was so generous!

Card: textured Very Vanilla and Early Espresso, Whisper White
Paper: Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper
Other: Timeless Type Junior Alphabet, BigShot, Leafy Lace border punch (non-SU)

I'd like to enter my layout into the 'bright and cheerful' challenge at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and 'The Great Outdoors' challenge at Cupcake Craft.

As I've scrapbooked a barbecue, it's only fair that I share a culinary-minded feline with you today:
