So sweet...

This morning I was busy all morning, buying Ruby a new back pack as her zipper broke the other day, did all the groceries and then rushed home to have a little while at home before I had to pick up the girls again. When I went to my scrap room I found this picture on my desk. Something like this just makes you stop and smile. I'm so lucky to have such sweet girls. Thank you Ruby!!

Last weekend was our monthly cybercrop at Scrap boutique. My challenge was the sketch challenge. This was my example:

The photos were taken last week when I took the girls to a park near Gungahlin. They have a rope bridge there and Ruby wanted to go on it and she walked all the way to the other side by herself. A year ago she would have been way too scared to go on it but she seems to have grown so much stronger and more confident in her physical abilities, really makes me feel good!

Our guest stylist Linda her challenge was to make a LO about a house of houses. I went on google maps and found some photos of some of my child hood homes so I printed them out and used them for this LO. Am very happy I got to do this, thanks Linda!!!

Amanda her challenge was the speed scrap but I submitted that Lo and it was accepted so can't show you that one.
The last challenge I did was Em's challenge, the Sunday roast, loved this. Am very happy with my lay out :) Thanks Emma!!!

I am designing a (free) class for ScrapBoutiques birthday month, which is in July, and am excited and a little bit nervous about, doing something that is new to me too, can't wait to get started actually but am procrastinating a bit... oops. Better get started hey. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

Happy Scrapping :)
