Growing up

Here's a layout I did of Emma this week, playing at washing up in her new kitchen we bought for her birthday. The kitchen has a working tap, what were we thinking of? Anyway it's a big hit and washing things and adding plastic food to pans of water and serving it up to mummy and daddy is the in thing. I didn't get any really good photos of her birthday as she was ill and not really in the mood for any posing and lay down again soon after this photo, but I wanted to use them anyway.

I chose some lovely soft My Mind's Eye papers to match the photo and go for a softer look on this layout and really to start bringing myself to start cutting up all the lovely papers I have in my stash!

We also did a great layout at Craft Den on Thursday. I am not sure how we finished it as we laughed so much! I had a great time as usual, it's my one point of time out and de-stress in the week and I love it!

We used another great range of Bo Bunny papers and the Blonde Moments grey papers. We also used some Tim Holtz background stamps. I have to admit I don't look twice at these grey papers or the background stamps. I have never really seen how to use them, but I have now got some really great ideas. Just look at the great orange and brown background stamp details on the Blonde Moments paper! I particularly love these swirl stamps, they are so great. I was thinking of purchase, but I might have to be a good girl and add them to my Christmas list, lol.

I have to admit I am running out of photos! Here is quite an old photo of Emma, at her first birthday party at our house, contemplating the contents of a lovely big pressie we have just unwrapped!
