Love These Moments

Hi everyone, I am going to break up posting my Lime Tart gallery work because its pretty picture heavy and it is such a gorgeous kit I don't want to miss out on any details. I got to play with the Full Tart - BEAUTIFUL kit!!!!

This gorgeous photo is my daughter and eldest son, sharing some sibling love.

I had so much fun with this layout, with the distressing, inking, hand stitching just to mention a few of my favourite techniques!

And some close ups.

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments!

I can't believe its almost May already, this year is seriously zooming ahead of me and sometimes it feels like I am getting left We have been busy with kids, sport, chores and just the usual daily stuff life throws at us but I managed to squeeze in some me time :)

I love this old photo of the kiddies and me in 2008, I can't believe how little they are. My 'baby' made me a cup of chai tea last night and in this photo he is just so little, now he is spoiling his mother!!

Some close ups..........

For this layout I used the a La Tarte with some flowers from my stash. This kit had so many gorgeous embellies and the ink resist buttons are one of my faves!

I used this gorgeous sketch here at Once Upon Sketch for my layout and I loved the theme of the challenge 'Home'. Now that I have a family of my own, I can't imagine my home any other way. Filled with lots of love, laughter and even the craziness!!

Preview Time - Whiff of Joy

I have a gorgeous new stamp from Whiff of Joy to show you today, its from their new Sympathy Collection by Elisabeth Bell. This little darling is 'Grieving Cherub'and will be available on the 28th at Whiff of Joy.
This is a little bit different to my usual but I wanted to focus on this darling little image, so I embossed some white card stock, added some stitching, lace, flowers, a sentiment and doily from my stash. Coloured my image with Copics and finished the wings off with some stickles.
Although this is a sympathy collection, the stamps can be used for other occasions to and there is also sympathy sentiments that will be available. I will be back with some more previews and don't forget they will be available on the 28th!
