Finally found time...

So I got around to finishing the layout I was talking about - the one using the Love Elsie range. It's kind of how I imagined it, maybe not enough contrastthough. Not sure if it needs a title yet...I seem to have a bold title on every page but the background paper says it all on this one.

I used Love Elsie - Roxie rub-on's, a Lil Davis chipboard scalloped circle (my new favourite product), a Bazzill scalloped heart cardstock with the centre cut out and a mini sewing machine which was a bit hard to get used to but I love it because it's compact and simple to use.

So here are some photos of the new addition to the family. Dora is a really nice little pup - she hasn't destroyed everything in sight...yet.

Here are the new Paper Salon Christmas papers I mentioned earlier today. The patterned paper in the middle has glitter on it which is what Christmas products are all about this year - lots of sparkle!

I must apologise to those of you who may be bothered by all the personal news I bring to the blog. Because of the nature of my business it is hard to come up with news every day that is purely business related and my business is my life, as are the farm and my kids, my faith and family. It is all linked together. By the way...i reckon I have a dream job - working from home with my dream hobby!

Toodle pip! (goodbye)

Why apologise for blogging your life, its your blog, if others don't like it then tough. It is nice to peek into someones life every so often.

Dora is a cutie, though the kids look cuter.
