I am back with another layout. Now this one has kept me busy for quite a while now as there is a lot of fussy cutting and stitching, I didn't think I was going to finish it in time for the challenge but I have with a few hours to spare :)

I used Lime Tarts October Full Tart kit that was packed with Glitz Design Papers and these gorgeous butterflies!! Some close ups of my fussy cutting and some of my stitching.

This sweet little face is my DD when she was not even two yet, you can just see some milk on her lips.... Oh how she loved her baby bottles of milk, we eventually had to take the baby bottles away and that was not an easy task! So I have added some journalling on the back of the layout about it.

This is the photo inspiration for Glitz Design's January challenge. As you can see for the design of my layout I took inspiration from the round mirror and the gorgeous cluster of christmas decorations.

I need to use up my stash of Glitz Design papers....have you seen their new ones?? Oh my how am I going to choose?!?! Thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments!

Lime Tart Gallery 2

I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend, they do go by so quickly. Ours has been very busy with the kids going back to school tomorrow, I have been covering books, marking stationary and the list goes on..... So I thought I would have a break and post the rest of my projects using Lime Tart's a La Tarte.

Here is another layout of my DD when she was younger.

This gorgeous key comes in the kit, I added some white acrylic paint to the key and gave it a light sanding.

I had a bit of a play with the Crafter's Workshop templates, love the splats!

I made a set of three cards and used the canvas tags that came in the kit, I removed the stitching , separated the two pieces and used them separately. I made a rose and fussy cut some flowers and finished them off with a sentiment using the stamps again. Simple but I love the end result!

And a closer look.

I received my February kit on Friday, its sitting on my desk and I can't wait to play - it is gorgeous!!!!!!!!

Thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments :)

At Last...........

I think it has been months since I have entered a challenge and it certainly feels like it. So this week I had some time so I decided to have a go at this months sketch at My Minds Eye blog, I love circles plus the theme is 'New'.

This is my DD just a few weeks old, where does the time go? It is so nice to go back and scrap old photos because it brings back so many memories, aahhh those new born days are so special!!!

I hope you are all having a good weekend, life goes back to routine this week with school starting and all the extra activities the kids do ***sigh***
