Summer Love

This summer has been beautiful and warm and it is not often around here that you have weather warm enough to take photos of a newborn outdoors. I am so glad that I made a little time to take these photos of her. She has changed so much in these few short weeks. The elegant chair inspired me to pull out the Basic Grey Core Impressions, paired with this rich purple Kraft Core

Now that I finally have a daughter, I feel like I can finally participate in the butterfly trend with this beautiful spellbinders die.

Ah but fall is in there air, the mornings are getting quite frosty. It is almost my favourite time of year

In the midst of wondrous chaos

Hey there friends, in this moment the baby is sleeping soundly in her rocking chair in the kitchen, dinner is on the stove and there is laundry that needs to be folded in the living room. It is CHAOS and I wouldn't have it any other way. My daughter keeps me busy, school has started and my eldest now has hockey 3 days a week.  Somewhere during all this I found a moment while the baby napped, to scrap. I used another October Afternoon Sketch to put together this layout.

 The sun is miraculously still shining so work on our house continues, we are now getting to the finishing details on the exterior. Check it out!

My doors are all stained and in now, I love them so much, this will be the kitchen and dining room!

I think I always say that I am looking forward to the calm of fall, but who am I kidding? My life is never calm!!

Hope you are all keeping your scrap on

Softer side

This little girl is really bringing out the softer side of me. As I look back at my work, even when I was pregnant, I was leaning towards soft colours and pastels. So now that Pippi is here, I am pulling out the tulle, the lace and the pearls and having a blast. The inspiration for this layout came from Marcy's sketch over at October Afternoon

I used a variety of brads from the cake walk collection, mixed with this super cool sun burst flair from Greatest View. Also I  used washi tape from freckled fawn to cover the teddy bear chipboard.

Summer has been quite wonderful, but very busy. I must admit that I am really looking forward to the kids going back to school this week, it means half the mess, half the laundry, half the food and hopefully twice the creative time. Here's hoping!
