this story means the world to me

I was given the new owl washi tape from Sawyer's Place to design with and after alot of consideration I was happy with how the two Layouts turned out when I paired it with Amy Tangerine Pattern paper range. It also helped to tie it all together with the two different chipboard owls from Dusty Attic. They came with the option to have the owl wide awake or fast asleep hence the two different looking owls. I applied texture paste onto the blossom branches from Dusty Attic to add texture and then outlined them to add some detail. The other great thing about washi tape is you can machine sew onto it easily without it being too sticky for the needle and I like that because it gives me more options. I have decided to make sure if I scrap one daughter I then do another layout for the other one. Just so it remain even and didn't seem like favouritism as I tend to have lots more photo ops with Mia my youngest.

Here is something that brightens my day....and I was so happy that I finally found the perfect paper for this photo of Mia last year at her Kindy rainbow party. Love how it matched her pettiskirt !

Instagram fun

Now I have Instagram on my phone I am having way too much fun changing photos. This woodgrain PP range from October afternoon was really dark but I loved how it turned out combined with leftover PP from Crate paper.
 Background from October Afternoon 9 to 5 range called boardroom
and the title from Kaisercraft timeless scrabble stickers.
Other pattern paper from Crate Paper called Restoration.

older photos

I wanted to use the Sampson range of washi tape from Sawyer's place and found a cute older photo of Mia asleep in the car. I am glad I want to start scrapping my older photos that are only packed in a box at the moment. Oh and I have so many layouts I need to do using this collection.

I love how the different washi tapes went together and I used a strip of
Basic Grey Wander Vroom range.

Design team

Well it's official and I am so excited ! I have been chosen to be a design team member for Sawyer's Place. I was so happy I went and created two layouts with some of the washi tape I had in my stash while I waited for my first design team pack. This is an older photo of Mia as a baby.
