First Day of School For 2012

With a fair bit of sadness I sent Connor off for his first day of school – it didn’t help that he is a bit unwell – all sniffly with temps….  but he was excited – didn’t want to wait for me to take photos, but impatiently posed anyway.

Also have a few Scrappy shares for you – I just love love love October Afternoon Farmhouse at the moment – sooooooo gorgeous, love the colours, and love all the coordinating embellishments too…..

Here is what I did – I am going through a stage at the moment of scrapping in a Vintage/Shabby style – I have a heap of Vintage photos to scrap at the moment, as I raided my Nanna’s photo drawer during a recent visit.  This photo is of my Great Nan (my Grandfather’s Mother) as a young lady – I remember looking at it when I was young and thinking how pretty she was, and loving the gorgeous clothes she was wearing.

I’ve used a Crafter’s Workshop template to ink the background paper, and I’ve used a heap of Prima and Manor House Creations flowers too…..  Had lots of fun playing with mixed media for this one..lol..

Also, in a bit of a different style, this is a “Just ‘Cos” layout -  I have used My Mind’s Eye Kraft Funday Paper – LOVE this range too – so different, funky, and perfect for boys pages.

Well, that’s it from me now – I’m off to play with some new Basic Grey Kissing Booth papers from Anna’s Craft Cupboard, and some gorgeous WOW chipboard!

Have a lovely day everyone!
