the cold is winning...

But I am still functional..Just barely....So I thought I would post another challenge I completed before the dreaded lergy bashed me over the head. Always the over achiever..sigh..I did the June 123 challenge twice.. because I wasn't particularly satisfied with the finished result of this one:

But I did get to play with the scrummy new Rocket Age range from October Afternoon. Also played with paint and used a valuable tip from my good friend Fee..I held it over the toaster to dry it. Better than forking out 50 for a heat gun! Misting as well. The paint actually appears to resemble the mush he is devouring!
So I did this one:

And I feel satisfied with this one. Mostly because I scrapped one of the older girls.. This doesn't happen a often as I'd like.. Used some Girls Paperie paper as the background. Some paint, some old American Crafts bunting and old flowers too..  The challenge was to use:

1. the word create
2. brown ( I have brown buttons and brown in the ribbon)
3. Masking ( I have journalled on some masking tape)

This photo of Grace makes me feel cold..It was taken on a hot Summer's afternoon. They all sewed pillows for their special toys.. I will endeavour to scrap more photos of the biggies..I promise. xx

Happy weekend everyone....


  1. Awesome layout. I especially love the yellow swipe behind the pic. It really suits the pumpkin theme and I can imagine it looks something like this when you have to clean it off the floor and highchair :-)

  2. hi.. these are both very lovely layouts showing life for your children.. i do hope you can get over your cold quickly..take care..

  3. Hi Celeste, these are both STUNNING! I love the yellow on the first one. I'm not sure if you knew or not, but you were named as one of our winners for our sketch challenge last month at Get Picky? It's been a month now and so I just wondered if you knew :)

  4. Hi darlin - hope you're feeling better very soon. Being unwell with lots of kids to look after is no joke. No sick leave with motherhood unfortunately! See you on Sunday? xxx

  5. Your pages are just gorgeous... both of them! LOL
