On a bit of a roll...

Yes, yes I am. The only problem with being on a layout roll is that I feel that I'm neglecting my Project Life though I am only a week behind, so no major.

This week I took part in ScrapFriends latest sketch challenge. It was great inspiration to use my Silhouette to cut the chevron arrows but to fold them in a more dimensional effect, I really liked it.

so here is my take...

Thanks for looking, leave some love.

Sketch 356

I recently came a across a great site for Challenges, Scrapbook Challenges, and loaded my first one with them today. I can't believe how grown up Louie looks in this photo, it scares me! In a few months we will be celebrating his 2nd birthday, with relief (as I survived), and sadness (no more babies for me), birthdays can have that effect on me.

Looking at this photo, it fills my heart that Louie has got 2 sets of wonderful Grandparents that absolutely adore him. And the feeling is totally mutual. I remember that feeling as a child, an overwhelming sense of security and love in the presence of my Grandparents. They loved me honestly and openly, isn't that a wonderful thing! There truly is no love like a grandparents.....

A busy wee Bee

Well I have been, very busy! Not only have I survived the school holidays, wiped a lot of snotty noses, collected several lice eggs, and established Media Free Mondays (...YES!) much to J1 and J2's disgust, I have also scrapped. A lot. Maybe it is what has got me through those 2 weeks of torture that they call School Holidays. A friend of mine recently said they weren't long enough for her, she would've preferred another week or two. I stared at her blankly. Is she kidding, or am I such a bad mum that I welcomed Banks Avenue, complete with pot holes, back with eagerness. Anyhow, peace has somewhat been restored.

And thanks to my Silhouette my scrapbooking sanity has also been restored. I had a box labelled 'Work in Progress'. In other words, 'I can't stand to look at this page', box. I grudgingly pulled out the contents and committed myself to finishing off these lonely souls. So I did it, and I must say am quietly stoked with this achievement!
