Busy Weekend

First off was a challenge set by Jane/Tilly over at Scrapbook Dreams.
This month it was a sketch to create a Layered Distressed Shabby Chic Layout.
Lots of elements to try :Inking adding Lace or Ribbon on your layout. Use at least 3 layers of pp a cluster embellishment and lastly make a tag for your journalling to tuck in somewhere on your layout. Whoops forgot the lace/ribbon and my robot was my tag :O)
Did find it abit hard however did have fun and end up doing a double page layout as I had heaps of robot photos.

Then went onto playing with some Glimmermist :O)
Wanted to play with my new stitching templates from Scrapbook Dreams,
My layout came out alittle bright. I wanted to use this photo as my flowers were a special gift from my boys :O)

Thinking bright!!! Decided to do another Summer layout. Spring SOON :O)

Well thats me!!! gosh that was a long couple of nights, now to get started on my birthday and quotes cards for August :O)

Love this photo - Noah was so over it!! Just wants to play.

I aways journal about his year - "Love" this Layout!! love it when it looks like I imagined.


What a fun and happy year!
You’re funny, very cute, cheeky and SMART!!
Every Morning I look forward to you crawling in my side of the bed,
We share lots of cuddles, butterfly and nose kisses.
What a beautiful way to wakeup before the sun is up!!
You’re a loved and spoiled little boy with lots of toys and dvd’s.
You share with everyone which makes me so proud.
I can’t help but be a little sad to say good bye to my 3 year old
However I welcome my big “4” year old which I’m sure will
Teach me lots in the year to come


I don't like this photo however didn't want to hid it. really busy pp so only a photo and little embellishments. Please with it.
