This week's theme is something old, new, borrowed or blue. The kids are wearing blue, their dresses are new and the photo is old - couldn't squeeze in borrowed LOL! I have used Basic Grey 'Lime Rickey' papers, Petaloo flowers, a Hambly rub on and a thickers alphabet which I have stamped to match the colour of the background paper. The journalling reads: Lauren, you look so worried in this photograph, but the way you are leaning in towards Natalie shows that no matter how much you may fight, your big sister will always be there to look after you.

Lots of faffing about this week! Been without the internet all week, so lots of running between PCs with a memory stick LOL. This weeks' theme was 'independence'. You could interpret it as you wish - either the colours of Independence Day, or yourself or someone else's independence. I have used red, white and blue (with more than a hint of yellow LOL!). The journalling reads: It was so much easier to let you be independent when you were little. Today these words have a different meaning! I have used Basic Grey 'June Bug' papers, a Hambly rub on, Chatterbox felt border, Papermania bling and, I think, a Making Memories alphabet.

The theme for this week was to use 3 of something on the LO. I have used 3 children, 3 photos and 3 scalloped semi circles. The papers are Bo Bunny 'Sweetie Pie Squeeze', the butterfly is from Scrap FX and the alphabet is from Thickers. I love these photos, the children were totally unaware that I was watching them and then when they turned around they looked so guilty!

Wow - three posts in one day, don't know what's come over me! This LO was done using a kit from Crafty Stash, so I can't take any credit for the design. The only flash of inspiration I had, was when I realised I needed bubble wrap to stamp with and didn't have any, so I used a flower centre stamp instead! The papers are Webster's pages 'Your Life is Beautiful' and the stamp is from Technique Tuesday.
Well, excuse the pun, but I think I've finally got my card mojo back! Thanks Paul, for the link to this great challenge blog - Mojo Monday. I have used Adirondack inks to create the background, which has then been stamped using Hero Arts 'Poinsettia and Birds' background stamp. I have also used a couple of small pieces of Daisy Bucket 'In the Meadow' paper, some Basic Grey bling, a Hero Arts sentiment stamp and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
This week we had to use some stitching on the LO. I have stitched the stamens on the large pink flower. I have used Pebbles Inc 'Linnie Bell' papers and embellishments, which were from Sarah's Cards June kit. I have also used a Petalloo flower and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly.
