Take my photo

Take my photo- journalling is about how I always take photos but  no one ever takes one of me unless it's a set up one and I always smile like a loon. Love this photo because it wasn't set up (but that's not saying I didn't shove the camera into D's hands!)

The TH dress form die with a bird cage dress and raffia bow

I made bunting out of circles folded in half over raffia, never thought of doing this before and would probably go smaller again. Think this was 1 1/2" circle.

Button heart card

Can't remember where I saw this but it was the last thing I saw last night and knew I had to try the button heart today. After having a boy I have an abundance of pink buttons and what a great way to use them!  Nice and easy, just have to find someone to give it to!

Dress form card

Mr Tim's dress form die I cut while at Cathy's die. Seriously am tempted to buy it :) I had so much fun sowing the tiny dress together, think I missed my calling to be a barbie dress designer

Quick cards

A circle cut in half with some hand cut sails, my fav PTI cloud die and PTI baby sayings. This card took me less than 2 minutes :)

Sheesh like Lou, get a new paper stack. This is one of my first stacks but I still love it even though it's been used to death!

Emma's PTI stars and I really wish I didn't chomp the corner of that star off, it looks so sad now!

Baby LO

Me and my childhood dog Laddie, he never left my side and there's a few photos with him tipping me off chairs, prams and beds :)

Man I love those feet, tiny little toes that never stop kicking and especially since they found out that they can kick the keyboard *sigh Looks like I will have to post at 4am to make any sense now

Butterfly LO

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly
A beautiful tag Emma gave to me and I didn't know what to do with it. Not that I'm saying Eli looked caterpillar like when he was born (He looked many things but not really caterpillic) but it's a lovely thought because I think he has really blossomed the last month. Such a cute lil smiler, never fails to make me smile

Bandanna bibs

I loved the ones Eli had and since he started drooling/teething more he needed some more.  Alot of work IMO and I probably wouldn't do it again. Got the material in a cute little material shop in Galway which does great retro materials and patterns.

Bebe cool

All set up to scrap, inks out, paper laid out, in the right frame of photos *ughhh
So a scrap session cut short. Searched everywhere for inspiration and in the end I just laid pieces out without a sketch. The camera washed it out a bit because it was nearly dusk and my crap photo editing did nothing to help. Half of The Book of Eli-Chapter 2 is nearly full now and that's only since January...Better slow down

Scrap that baby Challenge

Scrap your ultrasound...since I have over 30 scan pictures it was hard to choose but I like this one because it was before all the trouble and it brightens up my hall as an altered canvas :)
