A card and LO

Morning everyone. It is Monday already....!!! Wow the weekends go way too quickly. Thankfully my hubby has today off as it is Melbourne Cup Day tomorrow and we have a public holiday for it. They do call it the race that 'stops the nation'. Can you imagine all these people around the TV watching a horse race. LOL. Not too fussed about it myself. Might have to get lots of crafting in whenever my hubby gets out of bed that is. LOL.

Okay on to my card first of all. This is for The Sugar Bowl with a great sketch and please include: Lace. I technically don't have lace but used a border punch to make faux lace. I like the colours. I have had these BasicGrey papers for a long time. I am such a hoarder. I never want to use any of my papers if I like them. LOL. I couldn't find a project that suited but the Gorjuss Girls are perfect for this DP. I think anyway. Hehehe. Okay babbling.

I haven't done a scrapbooking layout in a long long time. I have some Cosmo Cricket Early Bird DP that I wanted to use for a layout and I had it all set out in my head but just couldn't find a photo/s to go with it so started from scratch. Again I have had these Making Memories papers for a long time but haven't found a suitable project until I found these photos. I love these photos as it was my little girls favourite thing to do. You would say to her "Oh my gosh" and this is what she would do. LOL. It was a classic and we got lots of photos. Hehehe. She is my gorgeous girl. I just love her to bits. I must say that it is not as nice as I would have liked. I have to get some scrapbooking MOJO back. LOL.

Okay - have a great day everyone.
