Merely

a couple of things to share today.

Firstly, this layout I did for the current BASB challenge. It's all about how little Moodle gave up breastfeeding at 14 weeks old. We had been struggling since she was only 5 weeks old so I guess in some ways I should feel a sense of achievement that we were able to last as long as we did. But in a lot of ways I still feel the frustration and disappointment of not being able to go longer, especially since I was able to breastfeed Munchy without any problems for 8 months.


The 4 'ingredients' I chose were: kraft cardstock, polka dot paper, buttons, and sewing. Go on over to the challenge site to find out what I'm talking about.


Most of the products I've used here are from my February Kreatorville Kraft kit. Love that Sassafras Lass yellow/orange patterned paper I've used in the background - even if it is from such an 'old' collection!


I'm not quite sure on the splash of bright blue in this layout, I wanted something just a bit lighter I think. But I'm so glad I got to use my Pink Paislee Pixee Stix glitter in the centre of these flowers. I'm not much of a glitter girl, and this came in the kit, so I'm happy I've used it for something. I'm sure I will use it more now.

Also, check out this massive giveaway from Blue Moon Scrapbooking.


All the details on how you can win this are found on Lynette's blog post here. But hang around a while and browse her blog - she's got some major inspiration, and a few more challenges going on too :-)

  1. Another beautiful creation! Although I can see how you might have wanted your flowers a bit lighter, I personally think the overall effect is quite lovely as you've created a beautiful visual triangle with the top and bottom flowers along with your focal picture. Very nice!

  2. I gotta say I really love that pop of blue. and loving the ingredients you chose they would be my pic as well.
    I always find so amazing how each child can be different with their feeding. Josh was a dream and my last well he was my nightmare baby.

    This layout is perfect! I like the colors, the composition, and you may not of intended to do so... But the graphic design elements are there too... All helping to showcase the story and image to it's best.
