Love one another

One thing about being stuck indoors in this wild weather we are having, is that it gave me some great scrapping time yesterday!

This layout has a picture of my sister and niece. Very dear to my heart, it pains me that they live so far away. It touches on the, at times, tumultuous relationship the two share. Based on what I hear about teenage daughter's, I'm glad I have a few years to go!

I've had this sheet of paper for so long. It was so pretty, I didn't quite know what to do with (apart from admire it!) The tones matched the pic so beautifully. I used some Jo Sonja's artistic colour in Burnished Copper as a matting for the photo. Over that I stamped, sewed a section of lace and finally placed the circles I cut on my Cameo.

How gorgeous are those butterflies from Imaginarium Designs. They have lots of fab new shapes in stock! I added a bit of interest to the edge of the top circle with some hot pink embroidery thread.

True words...

My son's school has been closed until Wednesday, as there is no power and loads of debris on the grounds. Wishing those of you with little ones starting Kindy or Prep tomorrow the best of luck! Hope they have lots of fun as they move into the big world!
