Inspired Blueprints

Here is my first layout for Inspired Blueprints.  I have been trying since Friday night to get this layout done but every time I got some papers together they just didn't seem to work so I would start again!!  Finally, I finished it this afternoon and I am really happy with how it came together.

Mum and Jock came up from Esperance yesterday to drop off their cat "Boots" for us to cat sit as they are heading off to New Zealand for 4 weeks with Nanna tomorrow night (lucky buggers!!!) and they drove to Perth today.
Feeling a bit sad as I will miss them heaps :-(
Feeling very happy for them as I know they will have a fantastic time and they have been waiting for ages for this holiday.
Have fun!!
Miss you heaps already and love you lots!

Scrap The Girls

Here is my layout for the March Scrap The Girls challenge blog.  The challenge was;

To use ONE of the SHE quotes by Kobi Yamada as the title & inspiration for your LO

The quote I used was "She just has this way of brightening the day."

I adore this photo of Kenya hugging Fi just 4 days before Adrian was born.  It is a beautiful moment in time captured forever.

Enjoy your weekend.

White With 1 March

I was two thirds really happy when I read the March challenge for White With 1.  The challenge is;
To create a layout using

WHITE .......No problems at all
BRIGHT PINK.........Even better!  Every one that knows me knows I LOVE pink!

Thankfully......after recovering from a mild panic attack, I kept reading on and there was a description (and pictures!!) of what Artisan Shapes and Products are (thanks so much to all at WW1 on behalf of all the uninitiated).
Low and behold, I just happen to have some Artisan Products in my scrap collection (mental note to helps to read the packaging of the products you get in your kits and not just admire how pretty they are!!).
For the non-scrappy people that read my blog it is the little white shape in the bottom right hand side that has journalling in it!
