She is Kind

A while between posts! I have started back at work after almost 15 months off, only part-time but I think adjusting to the long shifts will take a bit of time. 

This is a quick page I did last week of Miss Lily. She is such a kind little girl, always the first to make sure someone is okay if they are hurt or upset and always doing little things for us. I love all her little expressions in this series of photos. 

I found this cute quote online, and thought it perfect: "Those who bring Sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves". James Matthew Barrie (author of Peter Pan). 

How cute it the Charms Creations love heart?

Thanks for stopping by, I have a few more layouts to share once I get around to photographing them!

Boy Pages

Both these pages of my boy have been up on the 2crafty blog this week.

The first one is my technique focus, it is all about using chipboard for masking. The photo is a close up of Zane on his 6th birthday last year.

This next photo I have had for ages, just waiting for the right bit of inspiration to strike for a layout. The new Echo Park This & That range was perfect, as was this super cute 2crafty chipboard Bare Tree - I love this tree!!  And the cutest little Purple Pumpkin owl.  This one I scrapped at last weekends crop day.

Thanks for visiting!

April Class Layout - Godmother

I had a fantastic day at the All About Scrapbooks monthly crop. I taught the class in the morning then spent the afternoon scrapping away. 

Here is the class layout I did. I love this photo which I stumbled across going through some older pics. It is of Lily and my friend Cathy who is her godmother. Perfect for these gorgeously girlie My Minds Eye papers. 

I will pop back later in the week with the pages I scrapped on the day.

You are so Beautiful

Just sharing this page I created for the 2Crafty blog that went up yesterday. Love these butterflies and knew I wanted to use them on a special page. 

Be sure to check out the 2craft blog here to see some close-ups of what I did to these gorgeous butterflies!

Why did the Cow cross the Road?

A quick share of a page I did recently, after Miss Lily told me a joke which she found absolutely hysterical! As soon as she told it and it was a funny moment, I immediately thought of a scrapbook page - like some crazy scrapbooker would, right?

The joke was "Why did the cow cross the road?"
"A Chicken!"

Hysterical apparently. We think the joke is meant to be "Why didn't the cow cross the road? Because he was a chicken"; but Lily's version was pretty cute!! And I got to use up some old stash too boot!

March Scrap the Girls

Happy first day of Autumn, not sure what happened to Summer? We didn't have much of one! 

The exciting part of a new month is always all the new challenges, plenty of inspiration to get the mojo flowing! This months Scrap the Girls challenge is the theme Celebrations  - any kind of celebration!

Lily turned 5 last month so her birthday photos were the first thing that came to mind for this challenge.

Lots of pink in this page, I have mimicked some of the pattern in her gorgeous pettiskirt by making a crepe paper ruffle and the pale pink bow. 

Be sure to check out all the other gorgeous samples here
