Had the urge to get out my pre- SU scrapping supplies on the weekend and just scrap without a stamp in sight. I have had these two pictures of my son sitting around for ages waiting to be to be scrapped. This one is Crate Paper with some Hambly Rub Ons and some bling. I have also used a ghost butterfly and outlined the edges in kindyglitz, but not sure how easy that is to see (Sam is looking up at it). How beautiful is the Wisteria!
This one is a quick and simple one. It's a bad scan as it's straight irl, but the monogram is very bulky and that always sends my scanner into a tailspin! I embossed some cardstock with my Cuttlebug and then covered the monogram with it. I didn't actually take this photo. When Sam was five months I went to scrap with some friends and the minute I walked in the door they grabbed Sam and used him as a little model. I got lots of lovely photos by Jodii and Rach that day and this is one of them. Thanks guys! How cute are those angel wings!
The weather has been beautiful here in Melbourne. On Saturday we packed a quick picnic and went to the lake. It was so relaxing. I love it down there. Lots of good photos to scrap.
Yesterday I ran a crop at P2P in Lilydale. It was a fun day and I really enjoyed chatting to the regulars and helping them confront their fears of trying new ways of doing things. Having said that, I decided last week that I wont be running any more classes and crops. I enjoy it, but the problem is I have such limited leisure time between family life and working, that I have decided I want to use that time strictly for my own leisure and pleasure. I want to do my own stamping and scrapbooking in that time and maybe actually take some classes and do some retreats just for myself. I will still be doing Stampin' Up! and Paperific but perhaps limiting the number of parties I do each month. This great hobby has a way of getting a bit complicated if you let it, and I have to keep reminding myself the reason I do this - for my own relaxation and for memories for my family. I feel good since I made that decision.
OK, off to play with my little man :) It's a lovely day and I intend to make it a fun one as well. Hope you do as well.
