I Dream of You

Thought I would give some challenges a go
Kraft It Up is a new challenge blog each month you have to use Kraft Cardstock and one other challenge requirement. This month that is to distress. Done :)
Scrap Mojo is a challenge blog I have loved since it started and one that I wish I had time to complete each and every challenge
This month the challenge is to be inspired by love and to use a love quote
Wow that didn’t sound too hard at all
I mean here I am missing Dave and needing to pour that sentiment into something
So viola this page was created :)

Used parts of Studio Calico Yearbook kit for this page
I pulled apart a Prima Raj Flower Center and sprinkled the sequins
The Red Washi tape is from Dudley Redhead’s Madeit store

I used the middle of the Prima flower I used to top the i on the Studio Calico alpha sticker
I used another Maya Road stick pin
and some buttons from Such Sweet Tierney

Some of the journaling stickers that were in the Yearbook kit
And yes my sewing machine is better, seemed that the trip to Mum and Dad’s did the trick
Got there and there was nothing wrong with it, weird but true!!

I found this quote online, printed it out and then inked and distressed before adding it on some brown washi tape also from Dudley Redhead’s Madeit store

Used an old Prima packaging as a template and doodled the vines in the corners of the Basic Grey paper, which I love!

We have been skype-ing with Dave, when the time difference works, ie when he gets up around 5am to talk to us around 9am


because of the time difference and the long flight(s) home
we won’t be able to talk to him now until he gets home tomorrow night
Tomorrow is the start of the new school year
Yesterday I polished up the school shoes + Megan’s black boots lol
so the now await the toes to enter them in the morning


Today we tried on school clothes
I held back the tears as this little rabbit admired herself and declared she would wear it all day


she didn’t though, I think she is excited about starting school on Thursday ;)
The girls spent some of the day doing this


and I put off interrupting them so we could go do the things on my get-done-today list
Which we did at lunchtime, so we had bread for lunch lol
and this afternoon Megan finished off this


her paint by number present from Grandma
and it is very cool indeed!

Pin It Now!
