Merry Christmas - My new Christmas Angel

Merry Christmas everyone. I do hope you had an enjoyable day yesterday with those most special to you there to share it with.

I must say I have had a rather busy December preparing for Christmas and the arrival of my second Child, who arrived on the 20th December. I was lucky enough to come out of hospital on Christmas eve - just in time to be home to enjoy it with my newly expanded family. We had a fantastic day and are enjoying taking the time to relax today with all the festivities.

Our second son Toby James has been doing really well after making his big arrival on Monday.

I did get an opportunity to take some photos of my little angels so I thought I would share them with you.

I hope you have had a fantastic Christmas day. All the best for the New Year - may your dreams and hopes come true like mine did this year.

My little bit of exciting news and some new work at Tomorrow's Memories

Well today I got some of the most exciting news, so I just HAD to share it.

I had a layout accepted for the cover of the new Australian Scrapbook Ideas Magazine. I am just loving this magazine, as not only do you get to see some beautiful work, but there a full step by step instructions for most of what is in there! I can't believe how many new tips and techniques I have learnt, and now I get to share some as well.

Obviously I can't share with you my layout, but I know it will be published around April next year. It is a really big honor for me, and I can't wait to see it in print.

In the mean time I would like to share a layout I completed recently for Tomorrow's Memories. This has been made into a kit where you can purchase the exact supplies to re-create it tailored to your own photo.

I just loved working with these yummy papers and embellishments - I think there was only 1 thing in the stash I was given to create it out of, that I didn't use! Those girls really know how to put Design Team packs together.

Anyhoo... here is the layout.
You can see it in real life to get an idea of the layers and dimension in it at Tomorrow's Memories in Bassendean Perth, and if you like it enough you can even purchase the kit from them.

Oh and don't forget to check out the Dusty Attic Dream Date competition at Tomorrow's Memories it is running from now until the 21st December!

Hope you have as good a week as mine has started xxx
