What? No people???

I know. I rarely IF EVER scrap photos with no people and here is a LO with FOUR non people photos!!

Bethany does so much artwork - both at home and at kindy - I just can't keep it all!! So, I decided to take photos of some of it and scrap them instead :-). That way, we still have the memory :-).

Anyway, this LO is for the 54321 challenge over at Savvy.
5 (at least) embellies
4 alpha title
3 (at least) ripped edges
2 chipboard items
1 die cut
Now, to see what other challenges I can fit in before the end of the month .... LOL...

Housework??? What housework??

Pigeon pair

I must admit, I wasn't familiar with the term "pigeon pair" until we had Dallas and everyone seemed to comment on it. So.... with that in mind, I created this page using the March sketch over at Scrapbooking From Scratch:
I've journalled about how lucky we are to have two perfect, healthy children and I love them both so very much.

Some close-ups .... the awesome Lil Red Rocket embellies: the button, the tag, the butterflies, the story book round. Just love them!!! Thanks Shell :-)

The little cluster at the top:
I think the colours came out better in the close-ups than the main pic - sorry. Am not having a good run with photographing LO's at the moment!
Have a lovely weekend all :-)

Lucky card

Over at Design Dollies, they have a "lucky" challenge (because it's St Patrick's Day soon). Anyway, I have made this "Good Luck" card:
You can't really tell, but I have painted the dragonfly with Sparkle Mod Podge to give it some bling :-)

Rubons + acetate = great effect!!

I was given these gorgeous rubons recently {thanks S :-) } and really wanted to try them on acetate. Soooo.... I used the colour challenge over at Design Dollies which was purple, brown and white and made this card with a see thru window:
That IS actually brown - I think it looks black in the pic sorry!

I know I don't normally post photos on my blog, but I just can't resist these stunning photos by the very talented Linely Gordon. We had them taken about two weeks ago. Bethany @ 3 and a half and Dallas @ 6months:

Aren't they just gorgeous!!!??? Now, how do I choose which ones to scrap?? LOL :-)
