Yay! Sunshine!! Although admittedly, clouds are a-forming over head as I type!!!
I've got some scrapbook pages to share with you. I've hit a new record for myself and have actually made three pages in just two days, which I've never managed to do before (aside from at crops/retreats). Go me! I think it's something to do with the size though, 8.5x11 seems to flow more easily and come together more quickly.
I've been meaning to scrap Ellie, now that she's away and crawling, for a few weeks, but catching a decent photo has proved impossible as she's just too quick! However, Ali Edwards made a LO using a blurry pic in the latest edition of CK, and advised that if you want to tell a story and all you have is blurry pics, just go ahead and use them anyway - the story is the important thing. How true. So I did. And I think the blurriness actually accentuates the theme anyway, hence the title, Life's a Blur. It's a bit freestyle-ish and was fun to do.Excuse this next terrible photo, it's all shapes!! I can assure you that all the papers are all straight in real life!! This page is for my niece telling her all about these two special people, our Auntie Jean & Uncle Bob (who aren't actually our Aunt and Uncle, but rather are distant cousins), and how excited we were for them to come and stay to visit her for the first time earlier this year. The journaling is hidden on a tag you can just see poking out from behind the pic.And the last one is a cute pic of her when she was just 3 weeks old! It seems so long ago now!!Well earlier this morning I used the opportunity of a bit of sunshine to nip out into the garden to cut back all the stuff the recent bad weather has drowned and killed. I was surprised at how much I had to get rid of, but hopefully some will grow back before the end of the season. I had left all the rubbish in a garden tidy ready to put in the compost bin, and when I nipped to the kitchen to take my photo for todays' HS:MS Holiday Game, I found that two little mischievous monkeys had decided it would make a great bed for a spot of sunbathing!Millie:Bella:Anyway, my word for today was Sugar. I'm sure there's loads of it in this. Seeing I went to the effort of cutting a huge slab and putting it on a plate to take a photo, I thought it was only fair I cut a small slice off for myself afterwards. Jolly nice it was too!!!!!
