ScrapBoutique Week 6

Just a quick post today to share this layout. This week over at ScrapBoutique the Passion 4 Fasion criteria was Elegant. I have used a photo of Sophie getting ready for her first school social. Did more journalling than I usually would but I wanted to tell the story of how I sometimes wish time would stop because she is growing up way too fast!!!

Had some fun with paint on the background which I stamped on using foil. Love the butterfly which I found at Lincraft of all places!!!! Thanks for looking!

Week 5 - Casual

This week over at ScrapBoutique we were given the criteria of 'Casual' and 40+ words of journalling to scrap. I went for the simple, uncluttered look (for me anyway) and told the story of when Sophie got her first camera. She had fun clicking away for the day and ended up taking over 300 photos!! It was so funny looking at all the ones she had taken. This is actually one of the many self-portraits she had taken. I love the weekly challenges that Chels is giving us and it has really re-ignited my love for scrapping!!!!! Thanks for looking!!

Scrap the Boys Challenge for October

Well we have certainly had a crazy school holidays at our house! We had a great trip away for a few days to catch up with old friends (ate and drank way too much) but now we are home, Harry has decided to get his horrid cough back again!!! Needless to say that not much scrapping has gone on!!! Here is this months challenge over at Scrap the Boys. The challenge this month is to use HANDMADE BOY EMBELLISHMENTS on your layout. You can use purchased handmade products, however please feel free to make your own!!!
Brands to think about if you are purchasing are Lil Red Rocket, A Lil Something, Greatest View, Charms Creations, Chelley Bean Designs and there are many, many more...
I have made the embellies on my layout as I didn't have any handy that matched with my paper and I have to say it was kind of fun to play around!!!

This is a photo of Harry at 1 hour old. Quite impressed with the photo as hubby actually took it because I was still in recovery!!! I love Harry's cute fuzzy hair and how new he is in this photo!! Brings back so many memories. Come over and have a look at the fabulous work of the design team at STB and have a go at the challenge!!
Thanks for dropping by!! :-)
