I don't think I've played with a Creative Scrappers Challenge before although I've long admired them.

It was great to have some time last week to create a layout about my daughter growing into a young woman.....

First of all the sketch.....

I adore layouts that show my children over the years....just love seeing the changes, the similarities, the cute little chubby baby cheeks lol :-)))

Hope you don't mind - - - - this is totally unpapercraft related! :)

If you love to wear scarves as I do - perfect scarf wearing weather is now upon us here in Australia and I came across this very cool clip which will give you lots of gorgeous ways to wear your sweet scarves....

Love the way this girl has put this together - soooo clever!

Mr and Mrs

Mr and Mrs I Do

As soon as I laid eyes on Little Yellow Bicycle's SWOON Collection I did just that lol:-)

I knew I wanted to use it to scrap a photo or two of my Mum and Dad who celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary last year.

Mr and Mrs LO
Don't you just love old photos - I sure do:-)

Here's what I used and a few close ups....

Do you have any cool weekend plans?
My Mum is visiting so we are going to hit the shops tomorrow for some retail therapy and then drive off somewhere for lunch on Sunday - should be a great weekend:-)
Hope yours is too!
