Things to share...

Firstly my little baby boy is getting ready to turn 5! Can you believe it? I can't, in fact I really don't think I want him to grow any older..... but I guess you can't stop the sands of time can you? Anyway, he decided he did want to have a party with his Kindy friends so to make invites simple (you know me I am all for quick and easy!) we decided to take a photo and use this as his invite. Well, it turned out great and I have been having some lovely feedback from the Kindy mum's too, so I thought I would share it with you! Isn't he growing into a handsome young man?! He is really looking forward to his party now too. Not long, next week for that, again a simple affair, a play in the park after school with afternoon tea and birthday cake! Lots of fun. I have also managed another layout to share. Used some older Kaisercraft papers, loved how they looked on the black background too. A simple page, but the expressions in the photos say it all really! These photos were taken at last years fete and we are gearing up for this years one on Saturday. I have a feeling it will be hot.... oh well, not much I can do about that..... Now this next photo is especially for Georgie. It is Josh and Niamh as little tykes sharing a see-saw. I think it was at Gymboree which they used to do together. I think this could make a great 18th birthday photo for both of them!! Oh and last of all I might put up a final layout that I created a little while ago but didn't add when I knew it was going to be included on the Making Memories blog! Very cool, I am over there as a guest designer with two of my pages using the Just Chillin' line, and of course my Slice! The other page featured over there is here on the blog... somewhere..... it was done a few months ago I think.... Anyway, if you want to check it out there is a link to the Making Memories blog on my sidebar. Ok, enough from me, things to do, people to see...you know how it is. Catch you later!

Blast from the Past

Well, I was doing some filing, well throwing out really old filing because there really is only so many years you need to keep some things...... yes I am a bit of a hoarder.... but what I did find was some photo gems from when Niamh was little! What particularly brought a smile to my face was these ones from one of our playgroup weekly gatherings. I can't get over how little they all were! Not to mention how young I look! Goodness me 10years adds up in the scheme of things doesn't it! But still, what great memories we have with these people and we still catch up! I have been up to a bit of scrapping too. I have had fun playing with the Lemonade collection from Basic Grey. These papers are so much fun and so bright, very versatile too. The next couple were simply using fun photos and old paper stash. I am finding I am enjoying using my old papers at the moment. I really don't need to buy new ones...but I do...on occasion! You might have noticed my edge punch obsession too! Loving all my edge punches and I think I need to buy one or two more!!! Anyway, thats it for now. Catch you later.
