A very scrappy weekend!

Wow !! I have had so much time to scrap lately its been fabulous! The girls are growing up so quickly and play together nicely (most of the time!) and so sometimes I feel like a spare part. I deliberately tried to get most of my housework done during the week so I had spare time this weekend... lovely!

So finally I have some LO's to share; The first is using the gorgeous Roadshow papers again in Sarah's May kit, really love the girly feel of these papers! Ive added a Prima butterfly & some swirls cut on the craft robo which Ive coloured with sakura pens. The flowers were basic e-line flowers sprayed with glimmer mist & circles which I distressed & inked then added some raja centres.

A couple of close-ups ;

The second is from the same kit!

I really enjoyed this one as it came together so quickly, Ive added a little prima packaging & felt under the title, Ive also used cosmic shimmers on the background & on the blooms which came with the kit, plus a little added bling & some punched butterflies. A few close ups again:

So it seems I am finally getting some of my mojo back! I'm also working on a mini-book about our June including my "project independence", the girls first sports day, their birthday etc so watch this space!

One more thing, I gave in today & let the girls have their ears pierced, now I know some of you probably think that I'm crazy them being only 5, but it was a moment of weakness & I'd heard so many "but Mum, Chloe, Carmen, Ellie etc etc etc has" that I gave in! So here we are today with them showing off their earrings!

Thanks for looking everyone, & have a fantastic Sunday!

  4. I love the angle of the photo in "those eyes" layout. It really brings out a cheeky mischievous look in her eyes....I'm sure she's a perfect angel though ;o) Really pretty LO's
