I've been scrapping!

I have completed a couple of layouts and finished a couple of mini albums. I can't share the little albums as they have too many other people in them. Don't want someone to get cranky at me blogging photos of their kids so you just get to see mine. The first is a Scraplift of Helen Williams, from her blog. It was lots of fun. Copying the lines and then colouring them in with watercolour pencils and adding the water to make them look like paint. It is obviously a photo of Gregory. Taken in November 2007.
The second one is a layout using the sketch of the month from Country Papercraft. I love to use sketches - it takes the hard work out I reckon. Thanks to Leonie for posting these sketch ideas. She is doing 2 a month if you want to join in, go to and follow the links to the forum. The photo is of Daniel taken in November 2007.

My quote for today.......................
The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. Elain Heffner.

As a mother, I have to say that being a mother is the hardest work I have ever had to do but the pay is so worth it!

I have an almost 14 year old son who still chooses to walk up and give his mother a hug any time of the day! I have a 10 and a half year old son who likes nothing better than to sit with his hot chocolate while I have my coffee and chat about his day, mostly about his latest Lego creation. These days are so precious to me, so I am taking it slow at the moment and enjoying them!!

Hope someone has hugged you today just because!!

Wow your case is spectacular and you've done well to 'boyize' the sketch.
