Sorting through LO pics I found.....

I am so lucky to have a family that supports my craft and addiction but my lil girl takes it one step further... she creates with me. I was doing the cropping thing of my photos and found Miss M's first creation. She loved painting the chippie and gluing them on. I had a page on the go that she looked at and got ideas, so it had to have bling. Now days she is getting me motivated by nagging "Mummy can we scrapbook today?" she doesn't use photos often usually pictures she draws and some stickers. I can't wait for her to be able to write sentences, I am looking forward to reading her journalling. 

 This is her creation, made in 2010, Miss M is only 4 (excuse the grubby face).

And so to upload a few more of my creations and get onto the Christmas prep =)
Take care

Oh, to be a baby...

Yay, I just finished a LO to round off a busy weekend of volunteering, house work and going walking. I have had the best week for new inspiration; heaps of deliveries from my shopping through a Facebook page, and I won a voucher for Charm's Creations for simply sharing her link and having my mum like her page (she won as well, both really excited). Well onto me creation for this week. I have decided that I need to catch up on some scrapping of my twins, from when they were just babies. Master C managed nearly a page a week in his first year, filling a whole album but the twins are lucky if they have 5 pages each!!! Of course the most recent get done, leaving behind the past....

This LO "Baby Massage" is of Master M and his after-bath massage.

I used a:
number of Kaisercraft Prairie Lane Collection papers,
Prima denim/canvas flower and its packaging,
Studio Calico Anthology lettering,
October Afternoon clouds (?)
and button, lace, cotton, brads. 

I free-handedly cut my scallop edging and sanded the edges. The flowers have been also cut out from the Kaisercraft paper collection.

I just loved the Prima packaging and got a good feeling from making use of it. Have you ever reused your supply's packaging?

I am having so much fun creating of late, and I am now aiming to get some teacher's gifts prepared for the end of year thank you's.

In the coming days I will be uploading a few of my older LO's, just need to crop them a bit and tidy them up. It will be nice to have them displayed all in the one place.
Stay safe
