Here is a layout I did earlier in the week with June's Studio Calico kit. The photos were taken on a trip to Wollaton Park to try out my new camera. I was really pleased with some of the photos and it was great fun - although I did get some funny looks LOL. There were quite a few photos I wasn't pleased with but I think I learnt a lot from that, I suppose the saying learn by your mistakes is true!

I did this below using the Scroll Frame Sheer Keychain by Maya Road that I got in May's Studio Calico kit. When it arrived I didn't have a clue what I was going to do with it but last week I had the perfect idea. I did this for John for Father's Day, it has photos of both Ethan and Flynn in and I've just used a few little embellishments. The photos aren't very good but you get the idea.

Then totally off the subject of scrapping is this photo below. It's a long story but the shortened version is this is my Dad (at the font) and his sisters. He only grew up with one of his sisters and believed the other was a cousin (they are half brother/sister). They met for the first time last week since finding out the truth. I have yet to meet my new Auntie but hopefully that will happen later in the year when she visits again. There are so many more photos like this but not of them together, it's been so lovely seeing them as we haven't really got an photos from when my Dad was young.

Great layout ... love the photos are in it ... I didn't notice those the other day when we were cropping.

And that mini is really cute ... that Maya Road keychain is the perfect size for a little keepsake like you made for John.
