Our Creative Corner - ATCs


 Here's my take on this challenge. 

 I've used my ATC as the topper for a card 

 Elements are from Daisy Trail 
 and the fairy and toadstool are from the Pixie Chicks #1 Collection at Charmed Cards & Crafts 

 My added colour is pink 

 Love, Sarah xoxo 

I Am Me

 Found this LO on my computer this afternoon and thought I'd share it with you. 
 It was done at the beginning of my venture into digi scrapping, 
 but although  I'm a little critical of it, I still like it. Hope you do too. 

 I'm pretty sure the papers and most of the elements came from 
 one of the kits by Shabby Princess with the Word Art by Bethany

I've Won and I'm Going To Be A Guest Designer Too

 Yep, you read that title right.

 Look out for me in April, but in the mean time, there's a 
 new challenge every Saturday, so why not come and join in?

They Grow Up Way Too Fast

Babies grow up way too fast and before you know it, they're running
around, reading you the stories conjured up in their imaginations
thanks to the pictures they see in books and being little people.

My nephew is just over 37 months old and these are
the latest photos taken yesterday evening at my Mum's.

Even reading to me he doesn't stay still!

I think Nanny was saying something to him

I did managed to get him to pose for these ones

And then there's the proud Nanny, finally getting the photo she's wanted for a while

Don't you just love how cute he is with those dimples? Definitely gets it from our side of the family!

Love, Sarah xoxoxo

52Q ~ Q12 - Journalling and LO

 Question 12 - What am I grateful for right now? 

The journalling's not something I want to go into on here.
Suffice to say it fits with the post here.

Try It On Tuesday - 15th March and a Huge Thank You

First off, a


to my family and friends.

This time last year I was in such a bad and dark place.
I don't want to go there again and those of you who helped pull me out
of there obviously know all about it, so there's no need for me to explain.
Anyone who doesn't know, just be happy that I'm in a much better place now
and am ready to continue my life with a smile on my face and a spring in my step.

So, this my lovely lovely gang is for you and happens to fit with the current theme for


Love you all more than you can imagine,
