Fabulous layouts - well done Annette. Love all the elements you chose; the touch of velvet is awesome & certainly does add a touch of femininity to the layout; love the clocks, gears & rusty additions. Who would have thought that you would have to raid a shed to finish a sublime layout - beautiful.  Love the little yellow rose on the LO.
Hope your ankle is doing well.

Bye for now
