This is me,a wife, Mum, stylist to my star like clients and whatever else I can have a go at. Living in Nova Scotia as a British ex-pat has it challenges and rewards so this is an account of my ecclectic magpie soup.

"Just Be You" layout

To be honest I had posted this layout this morning but the more I looked at it, the more I didnt like it.Sometimes, when scrapping I feel "stuck" and then when I`m finished, do not like the end product.Sometimes I move on thinking I`m being to picky.Sometimes I take it apart.This is one of those "sometimes".
I changed the background cardstock and added more things to please my eye. I try to spread my wings and do a different type of layout and chose to use scraps of paper, something I`m trying hard to do.I hand tore the hearts from My Mind`s Eye "laundry Line"and only used one photo.
Part of the reason I did this layout is to upload it to a Unity challenge,Unity Stamp Co is one of my favourite sites for stamps and I am part of their monthly stamp club, where I receive a kit once a month full of wonderful variety of stamps.Its a way to build up my stamp collection without a lot of cost.(The only thing I need now is method of storage,maybe another blog when I find one?)
Unity has begun a monthly challenge one per month for the whole year.This Month is HEARTS.
The second reason is I found a box of long,lost photo`s from `91 to `93 and this one is my son Liam,who is now almost 19. I had almost forgotten how extra cute he was when he was two years old.AWW Bless!He loved playing in cupboards and boxes and always,always had a smile. So I journaled this memory around the large heart to be different.I am much happier with this layout but still may need a little tweaking! Happy Scrapping.
Here is a sneak peak at what I am working on right now
