 And I LOVE it!!!  I can't stop laughing at that face!!!  hehehe

These boxes were a lot of fun...

White with one ...

OK, so this is my third attempt at this WW1 challenge.  I find colour challenges really difficult ... for some reason!!  LOL. 

Anyway, I had some gorgeous photos by LaBelle Photographics ... and Miss B was even wearing YELLOW!

Sorry, such a dodgy pic, it's been overcast heaps lately.  And when the sun does appear, I'm busy doing something else!

(I've journalled in white on the spotty pp)

Spot the white tissue paper flower from Pretty Petals.... :-)

 And lots of goodies from Lilredrocket!  The flowers, the butterflies, the spotty button and the vintage playing card :-)

So, I'm actually looking forward to next month's WW1 challenge now ... since I've finally managed to stay within the challenge guidelines with this one!!  LOL

Kraft It Up challenge

What a fun challenge KIU has this month!  It's all about decorative edges!!  I had lots of ideas in my head about this one, but eventually came up with this:

Crate Paper Snow Day

What a fun DT kit I received this month from Handmade by Suzanne!!!  Full of Crate Paper Snow Day goodies .... it's a Christmas collection, but I found heaps to use for non-Christmas pages :-). 
This die cut paper for example ...
For this layout, I cut two sides off and used the middle bit on the second page.

The wonder of you:

Also available in HBS store:  Sassafrass Lass banner stickers, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Green Tara flowers, stitched grosgrain ribbon, textured stripe ribbon (perfect ribbon for curling as it has fine wire in it and you can bend it and it keeps it's shape) and kraft cardstock.

Cuppa time:

A Get Picky page...

Just love the idea of the new Get Picky challenge blog - challenges all about multi-photo pages.  This is the inspirational pic: 
 Yum yum!!!

I loved the banner (of course LOL) and the pink and yellow lollies - particularly the ones in the jar at the bottom left hand corner.
 So, we have some lilredrocket (too cute little button)
 And some more lilredrocket...
And that flower is off a dress of Miss B's.  She wanted to know why it was on my page ... well... it fell off the dress, what else am I going to do with it?!?!?  LOL 

The pics on this page are of Miss B in her cool shower hat.  It gives her the giggles every time she wears it  .... it does look rather funny!!!  :-)

Have you noticed...

my new blog header??  It was one of the gorgeous photos from a recent photo shoot with LaBelle Photographics...
Here's some more sneak peaks ...
 Miss B loved this tea party ... with REAL water!!  LOL

 Peek a boo!!

I just wish I could share them all with you!!!  Oh, I just love them all to bits and I'm sure you will see a LOT of them on pages from now on LOL :-).   If you are in the Toowoomba region, I highly recommend LaBelle Photographics... Linley is soooo good with kids and her studio is so much fun!  And I end up with stunning photos to scrap so we all win :-)
