Reflection

Good morning, how are you all? You may have  noticed its been a while since I was active on my blog, thank goodness for the schedule function!!!


 At the end of October my darling other half, was in a truck accident, he luckily walked away with a fractured neck, and we have a long road till he is back to do what he normally does. But it has thrown me for a loop, how quickly things can change, it pointed out things that need to be in place that need to be done ( always figured we are too young to worry about things like that). It also showed that I dont take enough photos of my love, and I stress too much about little things, not the important things :( 

So I have taken time over the last month not trying to stress about the small things, in between running around to 1000 appointments and seriously trying to get life back into our new 'normal'.  Also I think my blog will change a little too, with sharing some everyday ''normal'' things in between the scrappy things, as then a way to document and always have something on ''paper'' in the digi world.



DH with his new neck companion......


With that its time to get back into the swing of things , that means also finding some sort of mojo so any suggestions will be great !!! 

Till next time, have a creative day

Peek A Boo - with Kasiercraft

Good  morning I here with a little double feature for Kaisercraft ..... either for twins or if your like many of us need to catch up on some of our ever growing photo collections. I love the new Kaisercraft Peek A Boo collection as its can be worked for either boy or girl or in this case both side by side. 






Also its a perfect thing as a gift as this layout is for my friend xxxx






 Kaisercraft Products: Peek A Boo Collection;  P2187 Tiny Tot | P2188 Bambino | P2190 Precious | P2189 Bundle | P2193 Infant | SS324 Sticker Sheet - Girl | PP1006 Paper Pad | CT 867 Collectables - Girls | FL588 Flourish Pack - Baby | SB716 Pearls - Blush | SB718 Pearls - Bliss | DD500 Decorative Dies - Script Words | DD410 Decorative Dies - Bundle of Joy | CD174 Cardstock - Powdered Blue | CD140 Cardstock - Candy | Other : Glossy Accent



                                                       #121 /365

So starting with the girl side.... dont be afraid to cut up the wood grain paper and add a colour background its a great way to add interest without a lot of effort . You could even sew them onto your page if you want to add another layer.  






Dont be afraid to cut up some of your printed papers like on  P2187 Tiny Tot this is where the pram has come from, worth the effect for an effective embellishment for your page.


Layering its the key to tie the two pages together, I used the boarder of P2193 Infant x2 across the two pages as there wasnt something similar in the boy range, not all girl papers are just for girls. 





#122 /365

The same print for the boy layout using the pram from P2189 Bundle, layer with one of the neutral stickers from the girl sticker sheet. Add some glossy accent to add some interest.


 Dont forget to add a little wood detail from the FL588 Flourish Pack - Baby also add a board strip for a quick journal strip. 




Hope I have inspired you, till next time, have a great day .
