I’ve been a long term fan of Laura Whitaker's sketches over at Stuck?! and have just joined the team. How exciting - thanks for the opportunity Laura.

This is a favourite photo of our oldest Grandchild when he was just one year.

Isn’t he the cutest thing?

I used the 1st August sketch.

We were in Bali for a special wedding so the Carta Bella collection “Yacht club” was perfect 
for a tropical holiday photo.

Love the new words from Scrapmatts CB6115 Assorted Words 28 - left untreated.

Journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-

You are our first Grandchild and very precious. We were on a family holiday in Asia, to celebrate your Mummy and Daddy's wedding. This was a week later; you had a cold and were feeling a bit miserable, but despite that, you still had lots of smiles for Granny and Pa, as we ate lunch. It was so hot and humid in Bali - I can see your hair is damp with perspiration. Don't you look cute in your Bond's red singlet? You had a green and a blue one as well.

Perfect for hot summery days in Bali.

  3. So happy you're on the Team! And what a WONDERFUL sketch & I just love how you've almost gone 'cas' with this one. The bg pp sort of sets it up, really, doesn't it? Love the bit of stenciling and of course, the chippy sets it all off perfectly. Lovely memory to scrap, too. I have my 2 eldest tomorrow AND overnight. Wish me luck!!!

  4. Congratulations on joining the team. So nice that you are back in your groove. I love this CAS style layout with just a hint of mixed media. You are so right that paper is just perfect for a Bali break. Oh how these littlies creep into your heart and turn your life upside down again just as you thought you were going to have some me time. Love it :D
