Amelia - month by month

Hi there,

I'm back again - one of my goals for 2014 is to blog a bit more.  It may not always be crafty stuff, but another goal is to create a bit more this year so maybe the 2 will go hand in hand :)

I started this post in early December...then ran into uploading problems with my computer.  I finally have that all sorted out.  So I'm going to post pics of my girl over the course of 2013.  Every month we do a photo shoot with her

Amelia Month 8


And this month, she's 9 months.  Already!!!  The time is going too quickly.  We're enjoying her immensely and it will be tough to go back to work.  She's a happy, smiley, sweet girl who has totally changed our lives for the better.  We're so blessed :)

Happy 2014!

Kelly :)

Guest Designer - Life in Details - Use Bling

Hi there!

I know, long time no blog post.  I'm still trying to find a balance between mommy-hood and scrapbooking.  I'm slowly finding more time to scrapbook so I'm hoping to be back to regular blogging again soon. 

When Darcy contacted me to be a Guest Designer this month, I only hesitated for a one second and then said Yes! It was the kickstart I needed to get back to working on my project life (I was only 10 months behind!)

Here's what I came up for the use bling challenge:

The centre of the snowflake has bling and there's 3 little bling bits to the right of the snowflake.  The silver glitter snowflake could be seen as blingy too.  I think it turned out well and I had fun making it. And it was what I needed to get me back at my project life. Now, I'm caught up to April with journalling, and July with pictures printed & sorted, ready for journalling. As I posted all of my photos on facebook, the journalling part is easy, it's the organizing the photos that take time. I've been plugging away at it for a couple of weeks now, after Amelia goes to bed and I'm hoping that I will have our 2013 album finished by her 1st birthday.

Anyhow, thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to what you come up with!

Happy scrapping!

Kelly :)
