She's So Sweet...

There's not enough hours in a day, or days in a week to do everything at the moment! I haven't read anyone else's blog for a week now - I think I'm getting withdrawal symptoms. Still, some busy and full days do have their wonderful moments...
On Saturday, I got a visit from my grandchildren. Alistair is HUGE! He's one bonny baby, and that's for sure! Liy is sweeter than ever, and as she left to go home she said to me...
"I love Nonna's house"
"Why's that?" I asked
"Because you live there" was the wonderful reply I got. How sweet and adorable is that?
I wanted to scrapbook the moment - but couldn't find the right photograph. Still, I did find a pile of photographs that I wanted to scrapbook anyway, and found in that pile a really lovely photo of Lily when we visited Romsey World Of Water. I'm not entirely happy with the layout - but I think this is because I'm just itching to do another mini album (I have 2 ideas in my head)... I decided to use a lot of blue and green instead of girly-pink for this layout...
I used a background paper from the Mariposa range... then chucked a whole load of other stuff at it - one of the new papers I had as well as leftovers from My Minds Eye, some Papermania, a bit of Prima, a lot of cosmic shimmer, a splash of bling and pearls, lace, bits off of old flower arrangments and some stickles. Oh, and a little bit of sewing :)

What a sweetie she is for saying that. You must spoil her good I bet,lol. The layout is so lovely with the flowers and the colors you picked. I love capturing their little moments since they grow so fast. Take care and have a good weekend. Hope you get to relax a little.
