Meet Jonathan and his big sister

So this is my friends’ new baby Jonathan meeting his big sister for the first time a few hours after arriving in this world. The lovely photo was taken by the proud father. I showed considerable and remarkable restraint by limiting myself to just a few elements and NO paper – a first for me!

So very few credits, just Gina Marie Huffs wonderful Playing With Wire Doodles and Words.

Here is another LO to share, it is one of my favs from the summer, and I added some buttons so I can enter it in this weeks great challenge over at The Meadow blog Three Things Challenge

Credits HERE

My older 2 kids finish school today for a week – our half-term Halloween break. Heading up to the cottage – looking forward to being on the beach again, all wrapped up in our winter coats. Plan to take some photos for a family Christmas Card, so I can share my new passion of digital scrapbooking with more friends and family.

If you have read this far, I would love you to leave a comment and share your ideas if you are planning on creating your own christmas card and if you have made it yet.

Finally – our minister has started a blog HERE and I would love it if you could drop by and welcome him to the world of blogging.

Take care
