A Little Bit Of Sass!

Here's a layout I'd like to share with you, that I made for the Sassafras March blog challenge, which had to include the technique of Blocking. Not the same as crochet blocking, it just means to create a square or rectangular shape on your layout using photos and/or paper. The photo on this page is of Dylan this time last year, I can't believe how much he's grown up.

Looking Back-Layout Using Blocking

All of the items used to create this layout (except the thread and foam pads) are from Sassafras. You can see the list of papers on my Flickr account. 

Also I just wanted to say a big thank you to my new followers and my old ones actually, thanks for coming here to read my rambles! It does mean an awful lot to me, having you all here. :) 

Oh and just one more thing, you may have noticed that I've been messing about with my blog design and fonts. I'd really appreciate some feedback on it please. Is it loading up quick enough for your liking and is the new font clear enough to read? Please let me know if it's causing problems. 

Thanks again!



  1. The layout is lovely, and what a gorgeous photo of Dylan. They do grow up quickly, I can't believe that Daniel's 16, where did the years go? The blog is loading up fine and I like the font.

  2. Thanks Jo! My laptop is a bit of a slow coach and it seems to take a moment or two to load my blog up. Unfortunately I'm quite impatient like that, and I didn't want it to be bugging anyone else. I need to pull my finger out and do a family blog post, Leon has changed so much recently!

  3. Cute! :) Your page is lovely, hun!

  4. Ooooo! Love the new blog design! I like the stitching on your pic!!! Very cool!
