The first one is a bag topper made using the Big Bold Birthday stamp set and colours from the Bold Brights range. We used glue dots dipped in Dazzling Diamonds glitter to add sparkle to the top of the cake.
The second one is a 6x6 inch scrapbook page using the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set and the Rich Regals range (Always Artichoke, So Saffron and Elegant Eggplant), with some Hodgepodge Hardware, linen thread and tafetta ribbon. The flower was coloured with Watercolour Wonder crayons (direct to the stamp) and we dabbed some water on the stamp using an aquapainter before stamping the image - it gives a nice watercoloured effect.

More goodies! I've treated myself to a couple of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders (and one of the folders which comes with a co-ordinating die), although I've yet to try them out.

... and some Scenic Route Providence papers (a product kit including some chipboard and labels), some Pink Paislee "Spring Fling" papers and a few Heidi Swapp travel papers.

In addition, here's a photo of the rear of the minibook, which I forgot to post previously. I've used the section of green paper with the image of palm trees and a car.

A few photos of the inside of my album... I've scrapped some New England photos from our last holiday. I've even punched two of the room keycards and sneaked them in the back of the album!
A photo of my room:-
... and here's a photo of Melodee's "Pieces of Me" mini book:-
Someone put a "reserved for Scottish Quines" sign on one of the tables, which I thought was funny. It was really nice to meet up with lots of new people, including around sixteen fellow Scottish ladies! They made my stay much more fun than it would have been if I'd been sitting around like Norma Nae Mates!
Lastly, here's a photo of Suzanne winning her raffle prize... a huge Making Memories storage cupboard! We were laughing about it beforehand and wondering how the winner would manage to take it on the flight as hand luggage...
We "pimped" Helen's Scenic Route apron (a freebie from the SR class) with some really horrible American country-style leaf stickers (another - less welcome - freebie!) and two coasters, but I won't post the photos of her obligingly posing wearing the offending (offensive!) item... it's fair to say she was a brilliant sport, though. She's definitely started a Doodlebug flock trend.
