Although my blog has not been updated for a little while I have been finding some time to scrap recently and share some of these with you now.

A b&w photo my mum recently gave me of myself as a little girl.  I can actually remember that pink velvet dress but I'm not sure how old I was; maybe about 3.  I used the Stampin Up Beautiful Wings Embosslit to cut the butterflies out of vellum and I sewed them on individually with my sewing machine.  And here is a  close up of them.

This is a layout using October Afternoon 9 to 5 of my daughter as a holiday rep in Lanzarote.  I chose the title as I remembered a fly on the wall TV programme quite a few years ago about holiday reps and the theme music was the song There She Goes by the La's, so I thought it was quite fitting.  We went out to visit her at the beginning of May and it was so exciting seeing her on duty at the airport.

A photo of my son soon after he started walking around the furniture.  Not the best photo in the world but a milestone that needed recording.  I absolutely love that stencil paper from Jenni Bowlin Studio.  I must get hold of some more as I think it could be used in so many more ways too.

I cut the pattern from the Paper Lace cricut cart and copied a super idea from my friend Ali.  It really did take me forever to decide where to piece the cutouts!  Shame the photo was so dark but I  didn't spend too much time adjusting my camera as I can honestly say our visit there was the coldest I have ever been in my life and my enjoyment was marred enormously as I am not a cold person.  Note to self:  don't visit NY in February!
 OK that's plenty for today but I do have some more stuff to share with you soon.

Happy crafting.
