The next instalment...

Its 11.00pm & bubs isn't settling to well again tonight, so I may as well stay awake and put up another few of my favorite LOs


This was my first ever LO to be published so it will always have a special place. I used some gorgeous pics of my Dad as a child. I remember being so excited about being able to use my 'new' rubons on this LO!!!










This LO is a scraplift of a LO by Katie T that I did as part of a 2 peas challenge. I love Katies style, and still love how this LO turned out. I also just love the cheeky look on Calebs face in this pic - what happened to that angelic little child???!!!!
















I did this LO for the SM masters in 2004. It didn't get me anywhere though LOL! But who cares I still love it! Its my boys just being boys, so full of wonder & excitement about the world around them.
This one is a 6x6 LO I did for Ericas circle journal that we started way back when ASC was still Snappy scrapping. Even though it doesnt show my whole family now, I love the colour combo - it was very E at the time, and not something I had tried before. This was the most awesome group of girls to do my very first circle journal with and I treasure mine. Love ya all!!!


Here is a really recent one. Ive had this one on my blog already, and as I said then, its not the best photo, but I love the love & tenderness that it captures between Isaac & Craig.

OK thats it for now. Its funny that doing this challenge has really made me have a good hard look at why I scrap. When I was going through my LO trying to decide on my favorites, it wasn't necessarily the ones with the latest and greatest papers or embelishments, it was those with the photos that instantly brought back special memories that I consider mostly to be my favourites. I just hope that i have captured these emotions and memories in the pages that I have scrapped.

These are all gorgeous Nac and it's so true about why we scrap. This challenge of Ali's has really made a lot of us take a closer look.

Nic, I too love seeing scrapper's fav l/o's and why they mean so much to them. I think that it gives us an insight to their personalities...

Hope Isaac is feeling better. Look forward to seeing more of your work.
