Green and Blue in 62

Scrapbook Creations issue 62 is out now, and I have two layouts in this month - both green and blue, it turns out! This first one is for the Colour Team, which is lime green and light blue. It's one of my fave colour combos - so fresh and bright - and this photo of Ash with strawberry juice all over his face is a fun one.

The second layout I have is in Lusi's Top Ten 'Ingeniously Embossed Layouts' and is of little Mr Bodie when he was a few weeks old (so, almost a year ago now!). The embossing was done using Kell's cuttlebug and then highlighted with flocking powder for the vine pattern, and by sanding for the polka dot photo corner. The handy thing about scrapping at Kell's place, where I made this one, is getting to use her collection of Fancy Pants rub-ons :) Love these white dandelion ones and the green swirls. And I always love the Sass Lass cloud stickers.

This is the sneak peek for Q Tea's February kit - all gelati colours, sweet and bright. Still waiting for one or two things to arrive for it though.

Full kit reveal will be around the 25th - next weekend.

This weekend we will be spending in South Australia. My Grandad (remember this post? that was the family picnic we had, knowing Grandad didn't have much time left) died on Monday, and we are all heading over for his funeral on Friday in Adelaide. Then on Saturday our little family is going to Reedy Creek, Ben's dad's place, for a day or so and coming home on Monday. We had planned on visiting Reedy Creek for the Australia Day long weekend, so this is a re-shuffling of our plans. And it's always nice to have family time after a funeral, reflecting on the importance of connecting with each other and appreciating what we have.

After we are back home it will be time to swap rooms with Sienna - Ash's room isn't ready yet, we still need the electrician and a few other jobs finished, but we will just swap our bed with Sienna's so that she has a chance to get settled in her new room before she starts school.

Have a great weekend, I'll be back next week :)
