For today I would love to share with you a layout I made of my daughter and her best friend. The wire elements used all came from Gina’s Playing With Wire – Spring element pack at Weeds & Wildflower Designs, and seemed perfect for this quote.
In looking for this quote, I came across several great sources of quotes and titles suitable for cards and scrapbooking (digital or paper). Here are the links, and I hope you may find some of them useful.
If you have any other sources you would like to share, please leave a comment – thanks!
Another busy week over, and a new week beginning.
I am not sure if it is the same in your corner of the world, but here a lot of the kids activities stop about now until September. Last night was the Girls Brigade Display (their end of year concert for the parents) so this week after Chocolate Fountain party (how good does that sound!) GB will end for the summer (although no sign of warmer temperatures to match). However, just in case I felt under-utilized as a Mum’s Taxi, this week sees the start of tennis lessons for the girls instead. I used to find the summer holidays long when the kids were small, but now I love them as we can be much more relaxed with less structured demands of piano, choir, swimming lessons etc, not to mention the school runs and the homework.
Here is a wee collage of some of last nights GB Display – including S as half of the Red Sea, and J as Jessie from Toy Story. The girls and their friends were delighted with their prizes at the end, and my daughters even confessed to having cleared some space on their “special shelves” just in case they had a trophy to add! Fortunately neither were disappointed.
I came across a very honest and refreshing post by a mum and her clash with her son over homework, you can find it at Surving Motherhood. Let me just say that I could certainly identify with her experiences.
Still in the midst of my biggest ever order for by Digital Scrapbooking For Others business, also known as JM Digital Designs. Please don’t click on the link unless you want to see what must surely be the most boring and empty blog ever! I do have lots of good intentions to redesign it, and maybe even put a post on it but as I currently have plenty of work without it, it has slipped further down my to-do list. Any suggestions for how to improve it all gratefully received, because it certainly could not be any worse! At least I have insight!
So I am off to have another lovely busy week with my family and my digi-scrapping, and I hope you too have a great week doing whatever you do.
Until the next time,
