If you want to join in - here is the link
The other layout I have just completed is here
Both layouts have been completed using Laundry Lines paper available from the fantastic Indigo Mill
aren't they gorgeous and the length of fabric flowers in each was worth the £2.99 price tag alone - really cute and then I saw this it was a slight gamble as it was wrapped in cellophane and you couldnt see what it was really but for £1.99 - what do you think
lots of card pages with pockets followed by sheets of lined paper - great for thinking on the go - have started putting things at the kids say and do on scraps of paper in them and quick sketches so that when I come to sit down and scrap I am ready to go - well thats the plan at least of which I have made a start
Then to finish off my visit - I had to have a new oilcoth for the table in the conservatory - we replace it quite often and I do like something a bit zingy - thought it was rather cute
I returned quite happy with my little purchases!

I am rather pleased with it - need to borrow hubby's diy stapler later to tidy the back up but yeah - my only concern is when you look at it - does it look as if the kids are saying we love you or is it as intended - We Love You (from Mummy and Daddy) I think what I will do is sign inside the frame on the back
Thanks for looking - why don't you have a go and show me what you come up with. I have loved playing hookey this morning and playing with fabric and glue

and one that always twangs my heart strings
I remember this one being taken - Emmie was just a few months old and totally adorable.
The picture was taken of her in her grobag although you cant really see it - well it makes me think back to getting the grobags - when we bought our son home from the hospital and it suddenly dawned on us - this was it - it was down to just us to bring this little fella up and be totally responsible for him - my oh my - that was a scary but heartwarming moment - well anyway I digress I was always worried about him when I went to sleep at night - he would be beside me in the moses basket so close I would lay my hand on him - we would swaddle him in a sheet and a blanket just like we had been shown in the hospital - we did this for about 5 months but by then he was starting to wriggle a lot more and it was time to go into his own room into the big cot - oh my - I kept having visions of him going under the blankets - anyway after a bit of thought and a chat with a neighbour I had a search around the internet and found these
so totally amazing - from then on - that was what I used all the time with both of my two.
They were absolutely fantastic - you could feed them their night feed in them - unzip the bottom half and change their nappy and clean them up and they could still feel snug. You could even travel with them depending what sort you got and then when you arrived at Grandmas - all you had to do was lift them out of the car seat and into their cot and familiar surroundings made them settle so much easier
I was quite sad when they outgrew them - but like a lot of things - it was a milestone - a sign that they were getting bigger and as much as we want to freeze moments in time - we have to let them grow too. I guess that is why I love my scrapping - taking the pictures that I do - freezes that moment in time not only in my heart but on paper too so when I am old and grey and losing my marbles I can hopefully look back and remember a perfect time

here we go - some piccies
a wave from the friendly baker
isnt the packaging gorgeous let alone the scrummy contents
I dont know where my daughter gets her sweet tooth from - LOL!!!
everyone got a cake or a giant cookie to bring home = unfortunately there was no way of getting a piccie - they were eaten too quickly apart from mine which I had once the shopping was away and the little ones had gone to bed - and then I savoured it with a cuppa
finally finished the next one
