Chubby bubby bum

Is there anything cuter than the roly-poly legs of a baby? It's really the only time in your life where leg-rolls are considered an asset! Well what about a toddler in a bathing suit with her little backside hanging out? HHheeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!


Our recent beach holiday was Moodles first experience of the sand and surf and she absolutely ADORED it! She squealed with delight at the sand beneath her toes, and you can see her licking her salty fingers and getting such a surprise in the top photo :-)


The Blissful collection by Authentique are the perfect colours for a beachy layout don't you think? Lots of different techniques and tricks in the different sqaures in my grid layout. Let me share a few with you....
I was given a few colours of seam binding which Suzanne has just started stocking and used them here - firstly I ruffled and sewed them in layers beneath my title, and secondly I just did the traditional bow idea (original hey!?)


I made my own fabric covered button and snipped a Manor House Creations Whitsunday flower in half to add to this embellishment cluster above.


Do you want to know the secret behind my seemingly random scattering of pearls in this segment? The secret is.... it really is random! I sprinkled on my pearls in two different colours and then glued them on where they landed :-) Crazily ingenius hey!


And that beautiful Imaginarium Designs chipboard didn't need anything doing to it at all.... perfect just as it was :-)

Aaaaaaahhhh now I'm all nostalgic for my holidays. Good times.
