Quick & Easy

THANK YOU all for your wishes, prayers and thoughts. When the time came it came quite fast and although I had often said in the past couple of weeks that i wish my dad would die in his sleep to end his suffering the reality of it was another thing. We all didn't think it would happen as fast as it did. My mum is coping extremely well my DH not so well. Me i am fine I just don't think about it too hard. Anyway enough said, time does not stand still.

I have been doing a few crafty projects but mainly ones that are scrap lifted and didn't require much thought. This one is a lift from Nerrida Mitchell you can find her original here
a cute photo of Andrew holding Caitlin a precious new born only hours old. This is a scraplift from one of my favourite American scrappers Kelly Goree who just happens to be a designer for Basic Grey my very favourite scrapbooking co. I know that its pink and i know that i have put a boy photo with it but who says that pink is just for girls and pink and green what a fab combo. AND pay attention Susan,Tracey and Rumi this has sewing on it. I actually got out my machine and used it on this LO. Too bad you cant really see it.
Now this LO is all mine. I got these fabulous journalling cards from 7gypsies that i just had to use and as you can see i have used my cricut (cutting machine) for some of the title and embellishments.

I have also made a stack of thank you cards for mum but she took them before i got a chance to photo them. Never mind now i have to go and make a bunch for myself to send out.
Thank you all once again.
Hope that you are having or have had a good weekend.
Love me.

First of fabulous does your blog look?!? What a great makeover, I love it.
Love and hugs to you and your beautiful family-you know I am thinking of you all.
Your LOs are sensational! I love Kelly Gorees scrapping too, and your take on her LO is gorgeous. The pink and green is just lovely. Your other LOs are also great...goes to show that sometimes it doesn't pay to think too hard (especially if they turn out like these...awesome!)

So sorry to hear of your loss and sending lots of thoughts your way!

I am sure you are finding the scrap booking to be very therapeutic - I love your latest LO's and the machine stitching is a great design element - how wonderful to combine different craft techniques in the one hobby.
