Too Fast

Another layout of DGD # 1 Rebekah, for the sketch
challenge over at Practical Scrappers....



The sketch, by Ann-Katrin....



Again, using up my Lime Tart kits, this layout is using
the September '09 Half Tart....

Papers are My Mind's Eye 'Pretty Please'....


Chipboard embellishments are by R W Laser Cuts....

Bling by Basic Grey....
Title - Basic Grey and Carolee's Creations....




The beautiful tree stamp with the children on
a swing (love it) is by Grace Taylor called 'Tree Swing'....
And the lace was in the kit....




The photo was taken in October last year
definitely growing up TOO FAST!!!....

*****

Lookee what I got for Mother's Day....



DD had a ball at the local scrappy shop and filled a
beautiful box with scrappy deliciousness for me.....
A scrapbookers delight.....





These vintage images are awesome.....
The flowers and the ribbon, gorgeous.....




Swirly stamps by Inkadinkadoo and the embossed
frames by K & Co (hadn't seen them before)....



A few Christmas (!!) stamps and black die cuts
by RWLaser and Twiddleybitz....


And this gorgeous clock by Dusty Attic - I had been
unable to get a hold of one. Daughter had no
idea of this - great minds think alike....LOL - love it.....
Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day too.....
*****
Now to finish off I have to tell you this one
- it is soooooo funny.....
DH and I won these keyrings at Disneyland Hong Kong,
you know those wee tear open raffle things,
when you make a purchase....
Well, we thought, we'll give DGD # 1 her choice,
as the little one is too liitle....



So, Rebekah, aged 3 and three quarters,
studies them very carefully and then says:-
"It'll just have to be Mickey, cos that's
a VERY SCARY KOALA" with the emphasis on
very scary koala - I nearly ended myself.....
too funny....LOL
She hasn't seen the movie Lilo & Stitch yet....
Thanks again for dropping in dear blogging friends.....
Hugs
Jane xx
