Daddy Dearest.......

Father's Day was celebrated a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to do a layout that focused on the relationship that my children have with their Dad.  I'd been pondering how best to capture it when I overheard the girls repeating one of their favourite sayings "Daddy's the Best & Daddy's the Best"! 

And I knew what I was doing. 

This is a saying that has been regularly used, since inception, a couple of years ago and I know that if I didn't record it - it would be one of the small things that gets overlooked and forgotten.....  I paired it up with a photo taken a couple of years ago, when we were in Beijing which really just summed it up. 

To create this layout I used the First Avenue June Kit from Scrapbook Circle, with a smattering of mist to add that little 'extra'.  This was a fun kit to work with......

This layout is my contribution to Scrapbook Circle's Challenge #54

Time to Dust off the Cobwebs......

Goodness, it has been a while since I last posted.  It really doesn't seem like it was that long ago but it's been.....ahem......a while.  And so much has been happening that unfortunately, my little crafting corner has been neglected......

To get back on track thought I would share some fantastic, fun news. 

I have been published!!! 

Life. Paper. Scrapbook is an Australian quarterly online magazine that is FREE.  It's chocka-full of crafting inspiration.  Head over to their fabulous site for challenges, inspiration and of course the magazine click here.

Here is my layout that was accepted for submission.

If you go to Page 52 of the magazine you'll find it. 

The photo is one of my absolute favourites and I've been waiting for the 'right' paper, embellishments etc to use.  With the May kit from Scrapbook Circle I found the 'perfect' product for it.  It all came together so quickly, as just put it together and didn't try to second guess myself....which I know I do far too often.

Thanks for stopping by.....
