some scrapbooking

as i said been doing some stuff that cant be shared atm

but why is it that some layouts from the very start r just fantastic!! and the picture perfect copy of what was in your head...and some...are just hard the whole way and u end up not that happy with them even thou there is nothing wrong! this was my day yesterday

This is my nailed it layout. Its just what was in my head and fell together in a few hours and it was a joy. It then gave me the bug as you would expect, something i havent had all week and i had things i wanted to do.

I then moved on to the sketches blog, which was a sketch from my friend chris millar and i really wanted to nail it....its just not what was in my head but! My dh keeps telling me its fine and there is nothing awful about it but i cant shake that feeling that its not right...i think its the title up the top that lets it down its plain but everything i do to fix it looks silly so in the end at midnight last night i left it alone only to face the same question this i think its going to be one of those layouts u put away straight away so that you stop thinking about it!...does everyone have this problem please say yes lol it seems to come for me when im changing something about what im doing with scrapbooking...right now im into having bits and pieces hang off the edge and i couldnt get it to work for this layout that sent it right out the window i think for me.

Now this layout just fell together very easily last friday night. Its a layout for Scrapbooking by design my nz dt site and will be an online class next week. Kits are all avaliable at the site. And this layout is from the monthly kit of papers over there that are all Piggy tales and really very nice...liking these daisy d flowers too I will also teach this layout in oz as part of triple the fun at paper addiction next month.

what else had been going on in our little world. Emily has discovered dolls, and lilly who isnt really into dolls now is lol...oh the fun of sharing, so i had a doll in the present cupboard that i had gotten for emilys birthday...she has it had been there for months and i gave in...she loves my girls have been spending their days playing dollies which is so very cute.

Im still breastfeeding emily...she doesnt like a bottle at all even when its expressed me which is fine by me and i have been blessed with a year at home this time around so why stop its all to easy. Until the other day i had not thought about what lilly thought of breastfeeding. She watches, and tells me emily is having her nilk (its nilk god knows why), we talked about how when she was a baby she also had my nilk and she usually trindles off and plays. The other day she grabbed her baby and started feeding her. Well i have never seen anything so cute. I popped emily off and went for the camera of course like any good scrapbooker would of lol so funny its from her stomach
my poor baby girl was just bitten by her first wasp...3 of them in fact so we r on reaction watch right now she was so upset cause she thought it was a bee and well she likes barnarby the busy buzzzy bee from the fairies...but we showed her they were wasps and she was ok...i actually think that hurt her more than the wasp sting.

Hey darl, love your layouts...even the one that you say isn't so great! (Yeah I have many that don't quite work like the image I have in my head)
Your girls are just gorgeous and getting so big!
Would love to catch up soon. Do you travel out this way to teach? Take care and cuddle those babies for me!
