What's been happening here?

So much has been happening here that I have neglected to create or post regularly recently…

I'm currently 35 weeks pregnant - this was taken a few weeks ago.

4D scan shows lots of similarities between Charlotte and Bub 2


I've been looking after a sick lil bubba

Which means lots of cold cups of these…


I have been creating, heres something that I can share soon ...


Can't wait to share some awesome news with you all xxxx

Layout share - She loves a Selfie

Today I am here to share a layout I completed just for fun. I love the vibrant colours in the Basic Grey Highline range. I used a gorgeous cut file designed by Jessy Christopher which can be downloaded from her blog here, I had to adapt it slightly as my silhouette was not playing friendly that day. I also used a Heidi Swapp 'selfie' cut file which was a freebie during her week long 'love your selfie' challenge. 



Products Used: 
Paper: white card stock, plain vellum, Basic Grey patterned papers
Embellishments: Basic Grey stickers, Pink Paislee die cuts and chipboard shapes, Studio Calico vellum stickers, Freckled Fawn arrow clip, Studio Calico enamel dots, Basic Grey alphabet stickers, D-lish Scraps flower
Other: Silhouette Cameo, JCChris Designs cut file, Heidi Swapp cut file, Sewing machine, white thread, foam tape, tiny attacher and staples

Some close ups:




Thanks for looking! 

I am currently on maternity leave with only 6 weeks to go before I have another little bubba keeping my hands full. I am loving the 'me' time when I get to create so hopefully I will be back soon with some more shares :)

Jot Magazine - June Mood Board



I decided to have a go at this months mood board at Jot Magazine. I am loving anything 'mint' at the moment in terms of scrapping, though I must admit the linens and browns took me somewhat out of my comfort zone. It was nice though to add some extra textures to my page. 

Here's the gorgeous board designed by Kim
