A LO of Em & Lilly

Hi all,

I know it's been a while since I last blogged :(. I have been busy trying to keep up with the every day stuff of having a new baby & juggling Lilly around all the things that I do with Em. I have been lucky that my dh has taken a month off to help me. Unfortunately that is fast comming to an end, as Doug starts work on Wednesday night. In a way I am looking forward to things getting back to "normal", men have a way of getting under foot don't they ;D.

I thought I would post a small LO I have just done this afternoon. It's a 6"x6" LO that I put into a bound Scrapbook that I made ages ago. As you can see I used one of my most favourite photos' for this LO. I just love the way Em is holding Lilly & is so happy about that.

I used another LO as my template. I have done a larger version of this page with another photo of Lilly & was using up some of the left overs for this page. I am really starting to enjoy scrapping again, plus I have managed to include some stamping & copic colouring on this LO as well.

I thought I would share a photo of Missy Em (with her sheep), Lilly & the very lovely Dawn :D.

Dawn & her dh had a holiday here on the Sunshine Coast a few weeks ago & was nice enough to visit us. Em was so excited (me too!) to meet Dawn. Em especially loves her sheep that Dawn gave to her. So much so that the sheep had to go to pre-prep the very next day so Em could show it off. I was lucky enough to get some chocolates (I still have one or two left ;D) & Lilly got some bibs, which fit her perfectly.

Materials used in LO:
Hawthorn & Bramble stamps,
Copic Ciaos - YR23, YG67, E50, BV02, BV04, BV08
Snugglebug papers by Little Yellow Bycycle
Snugglebug stickers by Little Yellow Bycycle
Prima flower
Assorted ribbons

Have a great week ahead every one & happy crafting TTFN
