Well i had my first reveal over at Purple Pumpkin today, its always a bit scary to put your pages up, i always think is it good enough. I think because im a clean and simple scrapper my pages are a bit plainer and i wonder if its enough. I wish i could scrap a page that is like a Sara Lee cake -layers upon layers with heaps of misting and stamping and alot of embellishments, but i can't. It just doesnt work for me. So with that said here is my page, I have used a doily, that started out orange, one of their FABULOUS spotty buttons and some twine.
here is a close up of the doily and button.

This is my first attempt at scrapping an 8.5x11 page, i quite like the size and think i will do the odd page in that size.
My other page i posted on their blog is the one i did for CREATIVE SCRAPPERS sketch #205

I used one of their satin flowers and changed the button in the middle from a bone spotty one to this darker brown one. I have fallen in love with the satin flowers, I CAN'T wait till they have their next sale so i can get some more. Oh well thanks for looking.

Well its that time again for the latest sketch over at Creative Scrappers. This sketch was great to work with and it suited the photo so well as i didnt want to do a busy page, as i just adore this photo and i wanted to make sure that it was the first thing you see. I forget just how small she was, in this photo she is about 10 days old and sleeping on my arm. My good friend Celeste took the photo ( you can check out her work here )
So here is the sketch we were given.
And here is my page.

I do hope you will join us over at CREATIVE SCRAPPERS,
And i hope you all had a lovely easter. (She wont fit on my arm now.)
