Who knew....

Hi all... Sorry its been a while. Life is hectic sometimes isn't it.
I have been getting together with my good friend Kim lately at least once a week to try and inspire us both to get back into the swing of things and I must admit its working. Slowly but surely!
I find Kim very inspirational. She has a great style when it comes to scrapbooking and she is very creative - so thanks Kim for all you help.
This photo was taken by my almost 12yr old son Mitchell. We went away camping for a week at Easter time and had a fabulous time.

In the photo below, I have tried to get a little closer to some of the embellishments. (my photography skills are very bad - sorry) The doillie (not sure if thats the correct way to spell that...) in the background and the bird cage and also the bird at the top of the photo are cut using Kim's silhouette machine (gotta love that thing!) I have painted the bird cage using crackle paint which is fantastic for adding dimension and depth to things. The bird I have inked a little to try to age it a bit! There is a page out of an old reading book in there as well which I have used my Spiral punch on and there is machine stitching around the border... what else... oh yer that gorgeous clock face is a stamp from a previous mini catalogue. The set was called Sense of Time. There is also lace, Pearls, flowers and leaves! Lots of layers - which I am loving more and more.

Below is a close up of the journaling.

I had a lot of fun creating this page with lots of help from Kim... it celebrates our first time away on our own... and what a fantastic time we had. Love you three more than you will ever know xxx
