Creative Release...

Life can be a little 'odd' at times, stretched and pulled from all angles and chasing your own tail and in those kinda times I find it really helpful to get totally absorbed in something I love doing; well as it has been one of 'those' months so far I prescribed myself an afternoon of scrapping with July Kit...

This Summer we have decided to have a go at growing our own vegatables and although the veg patch of the garden was made for Harry he had lost interest a little bit but thankfully Simon has taken over the hobby!

I loved the green of the shaped Jenni Bowlin paper but the pink dotted centre really was not 'man enough' for the design I had in mind so I cut the centre piece away leaving a bright green frame and added this to the red cardstock - perfect colours for tomato plant LO's!

The Hybrids were ideal to add a little bit of fun to the design and I soon turned the apple to a tomato by cutting off the leaves and stalk and adding one of the blossom leaves from the Cameo Roses!

The border that runs across the bottom of the LO has been cut from the Cosmo Cricket paper leaving the peas as a shaped feature.

Taking just a couple of hours out from life, tasks and routine is good for the soul especially when creating with photos from a really happy time...

Harry adores his Disney princesses so having a dining experience with so many attending and paying lots of attention to him was a real treat!

I wanted to create a LO which added that regal touch so set about making some special frames for the three photos I selected, these were made using Nestabilites but cutting a simple wavy line will produce the same effect.

The Royal Banquet Hall at Epcot was very much like a tudor castle setting inside so adding some bunting and a scroll from ribbon really added those little extra touches to bring this LO to life.

I already have LO number three in my head and products on my desk but alas tomorrow is filled with more of the 'Help!' program I have been going to twice a week and the area we are learning strategies in tomorrow is behaviour and I must admit after the weekend we have with a few 'challenging' moments I am really looking forward to finding more ways to deal with these times even if it is just to share stories with the others parents and realise it isn't down to my parenting skills!:D



  1. Love the LO's and the look of next month's kit. Can't wait to see LO 3... Jen xx
