FRAGILE

Photo heavy post I'm afraid folks
- never a dull moment here in Perth.....

Two challenges with this layout of DGD # 1 Rebekah,
with photo's from February 2008....



Firstly, the sketch challenge over at SOUS....
With a sketch by Beggahunna this week....



And, the challenge over at Scrapping The Music....
The song this week is 'Fragile' by Sting....


Still using my Lime Tart kits, this one is from the
October 2009 (moving along slowly!!) Full Tart Kit.....


Papers are Bo Bunny 'Kitchen Spice'
Laser cut paper is Basic Grey



Cricut cuts are the shaped frame from Storybook cart
Flourishes from Wild Card cart



The title is Prima alphas
and the bling and pearls flourish is by Prima - which
I cut up to spread around the page




I have had these six photo's sitting on my scrap desk
for sooooooo long, determined to get
them all on one page.....
Along comes this sketch and at last....



This was Rebekah's first real show of emotion
(other than wanting fed or cuddled) when
she was 18 months old....

There was a movie on TV and for no apparent
reason this was what happened -
she became concerned, a little upset,
then full blown crying....

The movie??? - Sleeping Beauty - the
Disney one, and, no, not the scary
bit with the wicked queen and the dragon,
it was the end, where they all
live happily ever after.......Go figure.....

Just glad I had the camera handy to capture it.....

*****

Now for photo's of my poor car.....




Darling hubby assessing the damage,
which doesn't look so bad in daylight.....




The bumper and number plate are gone,
wherever these things go.....




The rear end isn't as bad, the damage is
mostly on the left of the rear, but somedody
parked the car beside this bush,
and this is the best photo I could get.....

So, in about four weeks she will look
all brand new again.....

Meanwhile I'm driving around in a
Toyota Corolla, quite nice actually.....


*****

Now, to happier events.....




DGD # 3 Emma is ONE.....






This was just a wee cake Mummy picked up
for the Big Day, she is having a Party this
coming Saturday, and the cake for the
party is a cracker.....

Stay tuned.....




Yummy, Yummy.....



Little poser, boy does this kid love the camera.....


And, more great stuff - the little one
has found her feet.....



No stopping her now.....



Running riot in the shopping mall.....



That's about me for now....
These photo's are for the benefit of the folks
back home - Dad has finally joined the 21st century
and now follows my blog.....

These are two of his three Great Granddaughters.....

Love you Dad.....

Hugs

Jane xx

Your granddaughters are all growing fast, don't you just love it when they start walking, they look so cute.

OMGosh Jane! I so loved reading this post and looking at all the photos - they are wonderful! Emma is just adorable and one of the pics of her made me laugh right out loud. So darling and I can't believe how big the other one has gotten!!!! How time flies. I'm also sorry about your car too! Hope all is well now. . .have a great weekend! Best, Curt

Debbie said...

Wonderful layout. Love how you captured the emotions on her fact. Great use of all the pictures! Ouch for the car, but glad that no one was hurt! Happy Birthday to your sweet little Emma and those cute little mobile happy feet!

Fern said...

OMG Rebekah is adorable then and now!!! Perfect pictures for the sketch!!! Luv your flourishes...
And I'm sooo glad that you weren't hurt in the wreck.. Looks serious to me!!!
And thanks for sharing the sweet photos of Rebekah and Emma.. Look at Emma's smile!! What a cutie pie!!! And don't you just love photos of the little ones eating their first birthdays cake!!!! Y U M M Y!!! Gotta luv it!!
And finally Jane, the reason I switched my comment monitor is because I'm getting ready to do another blog candy, and I just want 1 comment per person, so I can use random.org to choose a winner this time... Just not for sure that will work because it doesn't really let me know which upload people are commenting on ... So far I haven't gotten any SPAM here on my blog... I did have a problem with someone using my old email address book to send SPAM on viagra!!! Boy was that a big hassle!!!
Have a wonderful week, Jane!!! You're such a sweetie!!!!
Hugs!!!
