Scrappy sunday:

Here's what I have been creating over this long weekend:

Now this layout started out on my desk late in the week - nothing like this. It was bugging me. I wasn't sticking anyting down because it didn't look at all right. I knew the large photo was bugging me. I don't print large ones to scrap these days. But this image was part of a collection with smaller ones that I was going to frame - that printed wrong... Any who...So...To get past my preoocupation with smaller photos I perused some blogs I like...People did still scrap big photos didn't they? And still get the effect they were after? I ended up here...and became inspired... Now I love the BIGNESS of the photo. So much so that I might have to frame this one! The challenge was to use the word AMAZING...

STUCK! June sketch challenge:

I really love the Little Yellow Bicycle background paper. And the Jilibean Soup butterfly paper..Oh so to die for....The 'you are here' sticker is from a Basic Grey boy range..I have pulled it off to use it heaps of times and stuck it back. It ended up working on a page about my sweey Lilly Lou..My current nickname for this little person...

Thanks for all your lovely comments lately and as always thanks for stopping by....
Oh - and I am having difficulties with blogger - leaving comments at all other lovely blogs.. Some I can and some I can't?? Lizzy C and Stacey in particular....So I am sorry..I have visited you both this weekend!

Off to decorate choc muffins with my  little muffins and then to watch Collingwood play Melbourne..

Bye xx
